Barrett-Jackson to Feature an 'Eclectic Docket' of Corvettes at its Scottsdale Auction

The 2016 auction season is almost upon us so now is a great time to start taking a closer look at the Corvettes to be featured for sale. We’ll start first with the Corvettes at Barrett-Jackson, who is featuring what they call an “eclectic docket” for their 45th Annual Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, AZ.

[GALLERY] Straight Axle Saturday (40 Corvette photos)

Here’s a Corvette photo gallery dedicated to those early classics that we call the C1 Generation. Straight Axle Saturday celebrates the transformation of Corvettes from boulevard cruisers of the early 1953-55 Corvettes through the emergence of Corvette performance from 1956 through 1962.

If you’d like to see your classic C1 Corvette posted as part of a Straight Axle photo gallery, feel free to submit a photo.

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1958 Drag Corvette

Back in 2012, a video from Hemmings TV introduced us to Tony Meehan and his souped-up 1958 Corvette that was originally owned by his late father. It was a nice story about being able to restore and then drive a car that his father used to own.

Fast forward to December 2015 and browsing our local Tampa Bay craigslist for Corvettes, we found Tony’s distinctive white 1958 Corvette drag car for sale.

[PIC] Throwback Thursday: Zora Duntov and the EX87 Corvette Mule Hit 162 MPH

It’s time once again for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Last week, we featured one of Zora’s personal cars, the 1955/56 Corvette that was originally listed for sale for $3,500. Boy, if we only had a time machine for that sale!

For today TBT, we’re featuring a vintage photo and what we think is one of the more endearing pictures of Zora who was driving the EX87 Corvette we know today as Zora’s Mule.

Imagine you’re a Corvette enthusiast who has stumbled upon a barn-find 1957 Corvette. The car is stashed in a Milwaukee garage with about eight feet of junk piled on top. You say to owner, “Hey that’s a ’57 Vette!” and his reply is “Yeah, there’s two more.”

That Corvette enthusiast was a tow-truck operator named “Mike P.” who made the three-car barn find discovery when he was summoned to an old garage in Milwaukee to pick up a junked pickup truck.

[GALLERY] Black Friday! (33 Corvette photos)

We’ve been running our Black Friday Corvette galleries at the end of each month all year long, but for some reason it always seems more official when it actually occurs on the day after Thanksgiving.

Our Black Friday special is full of 33 Corvettes from all generations with the only requirement that they are wearing the color black. We promise that viewing this gallery won’t cost you a dime and since there are no lines, we think is one of the best Black Friday deals going today.

If you love Black Corvettes as much as we do, make sure you share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

Throwback Thursday: Zora’s 1955 Corvette Listed for Sale at $3,500

Here’s the perfect car for Throwback Thursday, especially since today is Thanksgiving.

It’s an especially good day to be thankful for Zora Arkus-Duntov and all that he did to help the Corvette become what it is today.

That’s why it’s appropriate to feature this 1955 Corvette once owned by Zora and likely driven mostly by his wife, Elfi.
