We’re not done with our Bloomington Coverage just yet! It what’s become somewhat of a tradition after the major Corvette shows each year, it’s time to take a look at some of the Corvette vanity plates we spied last weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Some lucky person is going to win a 2016 Corvette Stingray with a $100 raffle ticket.
Not a bad return for a car that stickers for $68,655!
But the real winners will be the folks who are ultimately helped by the Patty Pollatos Fund.
The Gold Collection at Bloomington Gold has picked up where the Great Hall and Special Collection left off. Each year it celebrates a special group of Corvettes. This year the Gold Collection paid homage to the 1966 Corvette as they celebrate their 50th anniversary. It’s no secret that we big fans of 1966 Corvettes around here, so naturally we were looking forward this portion of the Bloomington Gold show quite a bit.
General Motors released the sales report for June 2016 this morning. Corvette sales remain strong as the plant ended production of 2016 models and is now into its planned two-week summer hiatus.
For the month, a total of 2,483 Corvettes were delivered, a decrease of -11.5 percent over June 2015. For the calendar year to date (January-June), Corvette sales total 14,668 which is -19.9 percent off from the same time period in 2015.
I didn’t realize Corvette owners were so gangster as this Corvette owner portends to be in this NSFW tour of the C7 Corvette Z06.
The video is from the creative minds of the Muscle Vs Tuner youtube channel who so artfully showcase some of the stupid “s**t Corvette Z06 owners say”.
Happy Birthday, Corvette!!
Sixty-three years ago at a small factory in Flint, Michigan on Van Slyke Road, the first 1953 Corvettes rolled off the assembly line and into automotive history. On June 30th 1953, these Chevrolet workers and executive gathered for a group photo around the VIN 001 Corvette.
We love a good barn find as good as the next person, but we think the bidding might have gone a little too crazy on this 1963 split window coupe.
