The granddaddy of all Corvette shows kicks later this week as Bloomington Gold returns to the University of Illinois campus in Champaign, IL. Our friends from Mid America Motorsworks let us know that three rare cars from Mike Yager’s MY Garage Museum will be on display with one of them being inducted into the Great Hall.
One of the featured consignments at Russo & Steele’s auction in Newport Beach, California this weekend will be a 1964 Corvette coupe. If you’re looking for a potential NCRS Top-Flight winner, this is not the car for you. This Corvette combines the classic design of a mid-year coupe with all of the modern conveniences of today’s cars—a restomod in other words.

We showed you the one and only Paul McCartney driving his blue C5 Corvette around California a few days ago.
Now another legendary singer – The Boss, otherwise known as Bruce Springsteen – was captured by photographers motoring around Los Angeles with his wife, Patti, in their black C2 Corvette Sting Ray convertible on Thursday. He even flashed a peace sign to the paparazzi.
Brought back from the dead, this 1964 Corvette is ready to rock into the night for many years to come.
When Rick Thompson found the Sting Ray in 1988, the red beauty was a far cry from its current appearance. In fact, it was sitting neglected in an IRS impound lot and had even partially damaged by a fire.

If you don’t have much time to go to the movies, then Martin and Sandro Baebler’s flick called Advantage should be right up your alley.
Or should we say, right up your mountain.
In the film, which lasts all of one minute and 26 seconds, our mysterious main character (the only character for that matter) is apparently a secret agent being pursued by some bad guys.
More than a year of work has transformed this once-ordinary 1964 Corvette coupe into a prize-winning restomod, says owner Patrick Lamberton of Chalfont, Bucks County, PA.
Modifications include a 2013 Chevy fuel-injected LS3 engine, good for 436 horsepower, as well as suspension upgrades from a 1996 Corvette in the front and a 1986 Corvette in the rear. Lamberton says The Vette Shop in Plumsteadville, Pa., performed the drive train and suspension changes.
