1953 Corvette VIN 220 to be Offered Saturday at Worldwide's 2015 Houston Classic Auction

Only 300 Corvettes were built in their first year of production in 1953.

That’s why it’s always exciting to see any example of this ground-breaking Chevrolet sports car go on the block.

1957 Corvette Transformed from Basket Case to Bayou Cruiser

This beautiful 1957 red Corvette with white coves didn’t always look this great.

In fact, the master restorer who brought it back to life says it was “all busted up.”

As Mike McCabe of Busted Wrench Garage in Gulfport, Miss., put it, “It was a chopped up, drag racing car. It had holes in it and tires sticking out of the back.”

After taking the car apart and performing extensive “plastic surgery,” though, the classic Corvette is now a dream machine.

You know the feeling when you’re being egged on to engage the throttle and “light em up” when leaving a car show by that group of people who always congregate near the exits? We know we shouldn’t but sometimes the opportunity to show off for the crowd can be a hard thing to say no to. But you should say no because, strangely enough, bad things can happen with you stomp your right foot on the gas like the owner of this classic Corvette found out.

One of the great things you can do as a Corvette owner is to support the factory Corvette C7.Rs by going to one of the TUDOR United Sports Car races held around the Country. And Chevrolet makes it real easy to go by sponsoring a Corvette Corral at select races where owners can safely park their cars, listen to seminars from Doug Fehan, Harlan Charles and Ron Fellows as well as enjoy the camaraderie that we share with other Corvette owners.

Arriving this weekend at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, we were amazed to see a record number of attendees who parked their cars in the Corvette Corral. From C1s to C7 Z06s, there was a little something for everyone parked under the bright Florida sun.

Former Barn Find 1960 Corvette Has Great Story Behind it

The story behind a Corvette is what makes it stand out in a crowd.

Take this 1960 Corvette, which has had just two very conscientious owners since rolling out of the factory in St. Louis, Mo., not once but twice.

The original owner, a teacher named Ed Graye from West Frankfort, Ill., ordered the car with the “big” 290hp, fuel-injected 283 engine with a three-speed manual because he wanted to drag race it on the streets.
