Back a few years ago, I was restoring my dad’s 1970 Impala and had taken it to a friend’s house to have the motor rebuilt.
The paint was rusty and the interior was musty, but I had splurged for $1,819 worth of new tires and wheels just to spruce up the old girl.
While my car was there, though, in the dark of night, out in the country of North Georgia, somebody jacked up the car and stole my tires and wheels, leaving the first car I ever drove by myself (at age 16) sitting on top of concrete blocks.
I thought that was a depressing sight.
But then I saw this posting on Corvette7 and changed my mind.
As the one-year anniversary of the sinkhole that ate eight significant Corvettes in the Skydome of the National Corvette Museum nears, restoration work continues on track.
Zach Massey, restoration project manager for Scott, Murphy & Daniel LLC, gave another update this week on the progress that’s being made on the damage done by the sinkhole on Feb. 12, 2014.
Rumors that Larbre Competition will resume its relationship with Corvette Racing are expected to be confirmed during a press conference Thursday when the FIA and ACO will set the field for the upcoming season.
“You will have confirmation tomorrow from the WEC and Le Mans about the entries,” Larbre team owner Jack Leconte promised, “and you will have good news – a yellow car (Corvette C7.R) is inside.”
Now that Jeff Gordon has announced 2015 will be his final full-time season competing in NASCAR, he’s already thinking about what the future may hold.
Though he’s made millions over his very productive stock car career and could likely spend the rest of his life relaxing at an island resort, Gordon no doubt will want to continue to dabble in racing.
In fact, at last Thursday’s NASCAR Media Day, he told reporters he would like to compete in an occasional endurance seat after he’s retired.

Here’s one 2013 ZR1 that’s definitely a cut above the already awesome Corvette powerhouse.
LG Motorsports says that a fellow named Karl brought his stock ZR1 to them with the directive to build him a complete car that will spend most of its time on the track but still see some street time.
Some say he is terrified of Scouts and he spends his spare time catching fish with his tongue or foraging for wolves in the woods. All we know is Auto Evolution says this woman is the wife of the Stig, the mysterious white-cloaked driver on the British motoring television show Top Gear.
Dale Martin says he recently took these photos of who he claims is Mrs.The Stig at the North Star Dragway in Texas.
The latest monthly sales report from General Motors was released this morning which contains the delivery statistics of Corvettes in the month of January, 2015.
Last month, Chevrolet sold 2,127 Corvettes which was a decrease of -5.9% from the 2,261 Corvettes sold during January 2014. Since this is the beginning of the calendar year, those stats for Calendar Year to Date sales are the same as well.
