Barrett-Jackson’s fourth and final collector car auction in 2015 will be held next week in Las Vegas, Sept. 24-26th. For a town that was built on gambling and is known for inducing visitors to make risky decisions with their cash, there is a sure-bet coming to town and it carries the legendary performance moniker known as the L88 Corvette.

It’s looking more and more as if the Chevrolet Corvette might be the replacement for the Holden Commodore performance car currently available in Australia.
Production of the Commodore will end in The Land Down Under in 2017, but General Motors International President Stefan Jacoby has made it clear for months that the Aussies won’t be without a GM performance car after that.
Every good crime fighter has to have a catchy name.
That’s why the New Braunfels Police Department in Texas is holding a Name the Corvette Contest to give a moniker to the newest addition to its fleet, a black and white 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 seized from a drug dealer.
Last week we shared the Corvette Hall of Fame induction video with Chevrolet dealer and Corvette enthusiast Rick Hendrick. In that video, Rick mentions his first Corvette, a 1963 Convertible several times. That was the car he was driving when he went on his first date with his wife, Linda. It’s also the car that that he sold to help buy his first Chevrolet dealership. We all know how well that deal worked out.
Our last Midyear Monday gallery was dedicated to all the C2 Corvettes we saw on display at this year’s Corvettes at Carlisle show. We hope you have had a chance to view the mega Carlisle gallery because there are always great Corvettes on display there.
For today’s Midyear Monday gallery, we’ll revert back to form by featuring 33 random Corvettes that were all born between 1963 to 1967 – the original Sting Rays!

Corvettes are often referred to as “toys” for their owners.
Well, if that’s the case, then this photo of a crash on King Avenue in Billings, Mont., on Saturday night is fitting. In the background, you’ll see a Toys”R”Us sign!
Velocity’s Car Crazy this week will feature the immense car collection of Ken Lingenfelter. You’ll recognize Ken Lingenfelter as the owner of aftermarket superpower Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. The episode of Car Crazy, hosted by Barry Meguiar, debuts Monday, September 14th on Discovery’s Velocity channel.
Today we bring you yet another low-mileage 1978 Corvette.
Way back when the ‘Vette was celebrating its 25th anniversary and I was still a teenager, some folks got the idea that they would buy one – or more – of these “special” Corvettes and hang on to them to sell for a war pension sometime in the future.
Here’s a case in point.
The Holley Performance Products LS Fest at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park can go on as slated this weekend, according to a ruling by the Warren County Code Enforcement Board.
But after that event, the park must shut down events until a sound study is finished and the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County has reviewed and approved a new motorsports park development plan.
