Apollo XII Astronaut's 1969 Corvette to be Displayed at the Corvette Chevy Expo

We’ve all heard of the AstroVentilation that was used to keep passengers cool in the 1960s and 1970s, sort of a poor man’s air conditioner. But Austin Reed of Texas has an “AstroVette.”

His unusual 1969 Corvette originally belonged to astronaut Alan Bean – the fourth man to walk on the moon nearly 44 years ago – and will be on display Sept. 28-29 at the Corvette Chevy Expo at the Dallas Market Hall.

What Makes the C7 Corvette Seats So Much Better Than Those in a C6?

One of the reasons why we’re seeing so many positive review of the C7 Corvette’s seats is because the C6 seats are pretty awful. Now, I’m not jumping on the “Dissing the C6 because of Crappy Seats” bandwagon, which I believe already left the station a few years back. No, our opinion of the C7s new seats comes after spending nearly four hours in the new Stingray at the Media ride-n-drive last month in Monterey.

Mecum's Dallas Event – Corvette Buyers and Sellers Nirvana

Dana Mecum’s favorite car has to be the Chevrolet Corvette, especially if solely based on the number of outstanding high dollar cars that were hammered down during the last four days of his third Dallas auction.

It was clearly evident that Corvettes carried the four-day auction and were the car of choice for collectors where a new record price was paid for a Corvette ($3.2M, a 1967 L88, fully documented former NHRA record holder and the only ’67 L88 to retain its original body panels).

Of the 172 Corvettes that crossed the block 106 were sold, a 61% sell through rate, for a combined hammer price of $9.106M. Though some buyers were able to grab some excellent bargains during the first two days of the sale, the last two days saw spirited bidding and prices well above average. Almost twenty Corvettes were hammered down above $100K. It seemed as though most restored second generation cars were selling between $100K to $150K and if the car had any rare options it was selling close to or above $200K.
