During the recovery efforts this week at the National Corvette Museum, GM sent down a film crew to document the excavation of the first three Corvettes from Sky Dome sinkhole. Here is their video featuring our NCM friends Wendell Strode, Adam Boca and Chevy Communications guru Monte Doran.
The workers at the National Corvette Museum were back it today and they successfully raised the third Corvette in two days from the massive 40 foot diameter sinkhole which swallowed eight Corvettes last month.
Today’s get was the 1962 Black Corvette roadster, one of two Corvettes donated by members to the Museum.
Sometimes you just can’t see the forest for the trees.
That was certainly the case for Ken Heckert, owner of a restoration shop, and Chip Miller, founder of what is now known as Carlisle Events.
Both those gentlemen were very familiar with Corvettes, but back in 1974 at an event called Post War ’74 (now Fall Carlisle), they discovered what they thought was just a regular old Corvette race car that they could bang around in. Little did they know…
It’s the beginning of a new year which means its time for the annual Saint Bernard Catholic Church’s classic Corvette raffle. This year the grand prize is a red 1957 Corvette roadster with a 283/283 fuel injected V8 engine.
This individual Corvette is making its second appearance in the annual Corvette giveaway after it was presented to Jeff Morrison in 2010. Jeff sold the red roadster back to the Parish and now you can have the opportunity to drive it home later this summer.
This 1957 non-fuelie Corvette that has been owned by the same family for 57 years was stolen yesterday afternoon in Gainesville, GA (Northeast of Atlanta) and their owners want it back!
Adam Boca from the NCM Insurance Agency posted the Stolen Corvette alert on his facebook page and gave us the heads up on the car. The owner of the ’57 Corvette isn’t a customer of the NCM Insurance Agency but Adam tells us he hates to see these things happen to Corvette owners.
One of my all time favorite annual Corvette events is the NCRS Winter Regional in Kissimmee, Florida. While I love doing the stories and coverage of the new C7 Corvette Stingray and Z06, there’s just something about walking through a field literately strewn with used Corvette parts and accessories for every generation but the C7.
