It’s the final Friday in the month of February and that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” photo gallery. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 41 black Corvettes spanning seven generations. We’re admitting in advance that the gallery does feature more black Corvette Z06s than ever before but that’s because they are more plentiful now that they are out on the streets.

Hot Rod Magazine recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the big block Chevrolet Mark IV engine with a world-exclusive dyno test of one of the 427 Mystery Motors built by Smokey Yunick.
The 427 Mark II Mystery Motor isn’t actually part of the legendary Mark IV family, which debuted in 1965, but you can definitely consider it the missing link between the 348/409 and big-block Chevy engine families since it has characteristics from both.
Does the weather have you wishing it was Corvette season? It was 77 degrees and sunny here in Florida today so it’s definitely time to break out the ’66 roadster and hit the road. But if temps are a little cooler in your neck of the woods, here’s some great eye candy guaranteed to warm you up. Check out these 1963 to 1967 Corvettes featured in a random photo gallery we like to call Midyear Monday. So sit back and enjoy a Kentucky bourbon on the rocks while we show off 28 random images of the St. Louis born and bred C2 Corvette.

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but someone could get an early start on 2016 with these two his-and-hers 1964 Corvette convertibles up for auction as a pair on eBay.
The previous owner had planned to restore the tan, automatic transmission car for his wife and the blue, four-speed car for himself, but for health reasons, now he is hoping to sell both cars to the same person.
Yay for Mondays!
We love Mondays because this is the day we celebrate the second generation of Corvettes produced from 1963-67 in what we call Midyear Monday. Here’s a random photo gallery made up of 28 Corvette photos for your viewing pleasure.

For Wilmington, N.C., auto dealer Don Latham, the 1967 Corvette Sting Ray he bought at a Florida auction last week has the right stuff.
You see, he bought one of the Corvettes owned by the “Mercury Seven,” the men chosen by NASA in April 1959 to lead America into the Space Age.
All seven of the astronauts had a Corvette, and this one belonged to Virgil “Gus” Grissom, who was one of the three astronauts who died on the launch pad aboard Apollo 1 on Jan. 27, 1967.
