Back in 1990 Bloomington Gold introduced their SURVIVOR award for original, unrestored Corvettes. Award winners would need to be 20 years old, complete a short road test, and be at least 50% unrestored in 3 of 4 categories. Now, as we count down to the 2014 show, they’ve announced some sweeping changes to their SURVIVOR judging program.
The honors continue to roll in for the seventh generation Corvette Stingray.
The latest came last week during the Chicago Auto Show, and Tim Mahoney, Chief Marketing Officer, Global Chevrolet, called it “a fabulous award and one that we are exceptionally proud to call our own.”

After his command performance at the Super Bowl in which he threw for 287 yards and 3 touchdowns, Ravens Quarterback Joe Flacco was named the Most Valuable Player and Chevrolet presented him with the keys to a new 2014 Corvette Stingray.

That Stingray was rolled out of the factory earlier this month and was delivered this morning to the MVP QB at Mall Chevrolet in Cherry Hill NJ.
Last night at the Major League Baseball All Star game at Citi Field, the Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera did what he’s been doing for the last 15 years – closing out games.

For his efforts, Mo Rivera was awarded the Ted Williams MVP award and takes home the keys to a Lagnua Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray.
