Dana Mecum and the staff from Mecum Auctions are in Denver, CO. this week for a two-day sale featuring 700 vehicles which include 45 Corvettes ranging from a 1957 Roadster to a 2011 Corvette Z06 tuned by Lingenfelter.

Earlier this month, we learned from National Corvette Seller Mike Furman at Criswell Chevrolet that each of the six Corvette models would received a price increase of $400 as well as the package price for the three Design Packages.
