Today in Corvette History: GM Receives Registered Trademark for the Corvette


Did you know that the federal government’s patent and trademark office had an official twitter feed? Of course they do. But I just found out this afternoon thanks to a tweet from the USPTO which enlightened us on a little bit of Corvette history that occurred on this day in Year 1. It seems today is the official anniversary of Corvette’s registered trademark.

Purple People Eater Corvette Racer Heading to Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale Auction


One of the most famous Corvette race cars in history will go on the auction block at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2016 set for Jan. 23-31.

The Purple People Eater Corvette – which was driven by Florida-based driver Jim Jeffords, who singlehandledly ended the West Coast’s domination of Corvette racing late in the 1950s – was discovered by legendary Corvette enthusiast Chip Miller, founder of what is now Carlisle Events, and Ken Heckert, a restoration shop owner, in the mid-1970s.

1953 Corvette No. 198 to be Featured at Mecum's Dallas Sale


A 1953 Corvette that became just the second first-year model to earn Bloomington Gold SURVIVOR status will be on the auction block at the Mecum Auction in Dallas set for Sept. 16-19.

This Corvette, the 198th ever made, comes from the Dean Klein Collection. No other details were available, but the SURVIVOR ranking means that the car passed stringent requirements at Bloomington, including remaining at least 50 percent unrestored or altered in any way.

Corvettes on eBay: Burnt but Still Viable 1957 Corvette Fuelie


‘Tis better than to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

That old quotation pops to mind about this 1957 Corvette Fuelie currently being auctioned on eBay.

Just a few months ago, this was a completely restored Corvette, one of just 713 produced with fuel injection that year. It’s also one of just 664 four-speed 1957 Corvettes and has the correct numbers-matching engine.

Then disaster struck, with a dash fire leading to the damage you see in these photos.


One of the more awesome traditions in professional team sports is the National Hockey League allowing each team member of the winning Stanley Cup hockey team to host the famous trophy for a 24 hour period. This year it was the Chicago Blackhawks who brought home the Cup and now literally, each player on the team gets to take home the cup.

As we saw over the weekend on NHL.com, some do it with a little more style like the Blackhawk’s Duncan Keith who started his day with the Cup riding shotgun in a 1962 Corvette as they made their way to the beach where Keith grew up.
