It’s that time of year again to talk about Saint Bernard’s Classic Corvette Giveway. This is the 25th anniversary for the classic Corvette raffle and all proceeds benefit the Saint Bernard Church and School in Rockport, Indiana. While the last couple of years have featured a midyear Corvette as the grand prize, this year’s raffle is for a 1960 Horizon Blue Corvette Roadster.
Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.

Hotrod.com has a great story on its site about a true Corvette pioneer – none of that sissy trailer queen stuff for Eric Rickman.
He worked as a photographer for HOT ROD magazine from 1951 to 1992 and did a great job covering the hot rodding world back in those early days.

It was a long time coming, but Doug Penn of British Columbia finally has the 1957 Corvette of his dreams. If his two boys have anything to say about it, it’ll be the car of their dreams, too, for a long time.
Actually, Doug has owned the car since 1976, paying just $2,800 for the 427-powered vehicle back then. It served him well as a single man, and he even took his future wife, Doreen, on their first date in the car. It had been stored for 33 years, though.
