We’ve stumbled across another cool unrestored Corvette listed on eBay. Early last week we found the 1953 Survivor up for bids and now we’ve got this silver 327/350hp 1966 convertible seeking a new home. The hidden roadster was pulled from a barn in 2010 and claimed a Bloomington Gold Survivor Award in 2012.
A settlement has been reached in a New York case involving a man who bought a vintage C2 Corvette and wound up with $125,000 in the car, only to discover years later that the car’s VIN had been changed.
Robert C. Ernst of North Tonawanda, New York, bought the car in 2008 for about $50,000 from Ronald A. Ellis of Newfane, New York and then proceeded to put another $75,000 in an extensive restoration.
A dream is literally coming true for Dean Tarkowski as he restores a 1966 Corvette owned by his late father.
“After his death (from cancer in 2009), I was going through some items in his attic and came across some things I dreamed I would find,” Tarkowski says.
A Corvette dream has turned into a nightmare for an owner of a 1966 Corvette when he found out that his 427 big block had a forged vehicle identification number.
Robert C. Ernst of North Tonawanda, NY found out about the problem after his Corvette was disqualified from a National Corvette Restorers Society judging event in Ontario last summer.
That revelation has led to criminal charges filed against the man who sold him the Corvette with the allegedly false VIN.

Some folks can’t understand the love affair a man can have with his Corvette.
But Joe Munch and his family understand it oh so very well.

I normally don’t talk too much about my own Corvette, but this is just too cool for us to pass up. Yesterday, we posted that USA Today wants your Corvette Photos. Taking the plunge, I sent them this photo of our 1966 Corvette convertible parked at Davis Islands in Tampa.
This morning, USA Today has posted a story on their website called Happy Birthday, Chevrolet Corvette and our black Sting Ray is the 3rd image in the accompanying photo gallery.
