On Wednesday we participated in yet another edition of the annual Corvettes on Woodward charity food drive. Hundreds of Corvettes gathered to support the Open Hands Food Pantry in Royal Oak, MI. Each year the get together takes place on the Wednesday night prior to the Woodward Dream Cruise and has developed into the main event in what is now a 3-day celebration of Corvette and cars in general.
Another rare Corvette with a long history of racing success goes on the block at Mecum Auctions in Monterey, California Aug. 14-16.
This one is a 1966 convertible purchased new in Salt Lake City, Utah by Lynn Butler, whose intentions all along were to race his Corvette.
The Major League Baseball trade deadline was last week.

With the all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 just months away from being sold to the public, it’s highly appropriate that one of the original 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Z06s will be on the auction block at the Mecum Monterey sale Aug. 14-16.
Over the last six decades, Chevrolet has produced seven different iterations of the Corvette. Some of the designs have been called revolutionary like the C2 years while others have more or less evolved from the previous generation like C5 to C6.
eBay Motors found a cool way to illustrate the design changes the Corvette has undergone over the last 60 years by showing an animation that morphs from the C1’s 1953 Corvette all the way through to the C7 2014 Corvette Stingray.
This week we shine our Corvette Sales Spotlight on our friends Joe and Sunday Verrillo’s full service Corvette dealership in Clifton Park, NY called Prestige Motor Car Company.

There’s gold to be found on eBay and I swear I get a funky feeling inside when I come across the occasional barn find on the auction website.
Here’s a one-owner 1966 Corvette big block that’s been tucked away in a barn since 1981. The owner passed away a couple years ago and now his widow is selling the property which forces the sale of the Sting Ray.
