Back in the 1970s, the Greenwood-style widebody kit was popular with customizers who wanted an unusual C3 Corvette.
This 1972 Corvette factory convertible appears to have been treated to such a transformation, maybe from an Eckler’s kit.
They don’t come much more highly coveted than an L88 Corvette produced briefly by Chevrolet from 1967 to 1969.
Some lucky person will have the opportunity to lay claim to one of the 216 L88s made during that three-year span, this Cortez Silver over black 1969 Corvette Coupe with a long and verifiable pedigree that will be auctioned off during the Mecum Auction in Dallas, Texas Sept. 6-9.
Our friends at Van Bortel Chevrolet are hosting a car show this weekend to benefit “It’s About Caring for Kids” (IACKids), a charity group that helps families with sick children. The show is open to all makes and models of automobiles and will be held at Van Bortel Chevrolet on Route 31 in Macedon, NY.
Florida is bracing for the impact of Hurricane Irma in a few days, and the good folks at the National Corvette Museum are doing their part to help out their friends to the south.
The Museum announced yesterday that the Bowling Green community – a second home for many Corvette enthusiasts – is opening its doors to anyone fleeing from the powerful hurricane expected to hit the Sunshine State this weekend.
General Motors issued the official report on Friday for August Corvette Sales. This is the first sales report since the Bowling Green Assembly Plant closed at the end of July. Some new deliveries from the factory still took place during the month but moving forward it’s safe to say that any new sales will come from existing dealer stocks.
So let’s get to it.
In August 2017, Chevrolet sold 1,748 Corvettes which was a 42.9% decline from the 3,063 Corvettes sold in 2016. In August 2016, the Grand Sport had started shipping. For the calendar year to date (January-August), a total of 17,385 Corvettes have been sold. This is a 12.6% decline from the 19,890 Corvettes sold in 2016 during the same time frame.
The Canadian scenery is beautiful, no argument.
But with that beauty comes the risk of nature throwing a curve at drivers every once in a while.
Happy Labor Day Monday!
Hopefully you all have the day off and are enjoying the official last weekend of summer. Did you get your Corvette out for drive?
Last week we offered up a special Corvettes at Carlisle edition of Midyear Monday but this week we are back to our regular schedule. Today we are featuring 58 Corvettes in our Midyear Monday photo gallery!
Do you have a Midyear Corvette? Our featured image of the two red 1963 Corvettes comes from a reader. If you want to see your 1963-1967 Corvette on a future Midyear Monday post, email me a photo or two to [email protected] and we’ll add it to our archive.
What’s your favorite Corvette photo from this week’s gallery? I’m partial to a certain Black/Silver Convertible that made the cut. Tell us your favorite pics in the comments section below or hit us up on Twitter and Facebook.
OK, quick show of hands. Who remembers the late 80’s game show Bumper Stumpers? In the series that ran for 3 seasons, contestants competed to win prizes by figuring out what custom license plates said. Although we don’t have any prizes to give away, we are happy to bring you the Corvette Vanity plates of Corvettes at Carlisle.
It’s good to be the boss! First, he charges $300 for a cup of coffee to pay for his new Corvette. Now, Corvette rides are part of the employee bonus program.
