Corvettes on eBay: Little Pink Corvette by Legendary Customizer Larry Watson


It’s not very often that we get to write the description of a Corvette as “pink on pink.” But that’s the case with this wild 1969 Chevy customized by the legendary Larry Watson that is now for sale on eBay.

This might be just the ticket for Barbie, if she wants a retro Corvette to ride around with Ken.

Corvettes on eBay: The Force is With This Star Wars Themed 1974 Corvette


Back in 1977, a young filmmaker named George Lucas changed pop culture forever with the release of the first Star Wars movie. That film not only ushered in cool special effects, it set the standard (in the immortal words of Spaceball’s Mel Brooks) for movie merchandising and soon Star Wars branded toys and accessories were everywhere.

Obviously, the first Star Wars movie made an impact on the former owner and creator of this special 1974 Corvette which showcases many scenes from the movie with hand airbrushed murals painted on every body panel.

With the next installment of the movie franchise due in December 2015, it’s timely that this Star Wars branded Corvette Stingray is now for sale on eBay.

Mecum to Auction John Greenwood's Spirit of Sebring '75 Corvette Racecar


John Greenwood’s recent passing should make this 1974 Greenwood Corvette chassis number 002 even more desirable at the upcoming August Mecum auction.

Number 002, also known as the “Spirit of Sebring ’75,” has a tremendous amount of history behind it, including the fact that it was John Greenwood’s personal favorite.

Greenwood made only six of his wide-body race machines, and this example is the only one that was raced as a Greenwood “team” entry, with the others being built for customers.

[VIDEO] GM Helping to Get Stolen C3 Corvette Back on the Road for Woodward Dream Cruise


GM is doing it again for an elderly Corvette enthusiast whose stolen Corvette was returned to him last year after being stolen on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit 33 years earlier.

You may remember that George Talley, then 71 years old, didn’t know how he would get his recovered Corvette back to Detroit from Mississippi, where it was finally located by AAA.

Well, GM’s Mark Reuss, executive vice president for GM Product Development, stepped in and offered to have GM ship the car back to George’s home in Michigan.

Our friends at Zip Corvette are celebrating the return of Discovery TV’s Shark Week with a special offer.

Corvette history buffs know all about the design inspirations that the iconic creature of the sea has had on the Corvette world.

Corvettes on eBay: Wild 1970 Corvette with Psychedelic Paint Job


Back in the day, a lot of car magazines featured C3 Corvettes painted wildly.

The Stingray just seemed to be one of those cars that was perfect for painting that way. We remember one in particular painted red, white and blue with white stars on it.

Now you can take another trip back to the Psychedelic ’70s in this 1971 Corvette Coupe.

1981 Corvette Barn Find is Worth only $900 as a Parts Car


We call this a Corvette barn find, but the truth of the matter is that this 1981 Corvette wasn’t parked in a barn. Instead, it’s been stashed behind a lady’s garage since 1996. This craigslist ad shows the damage that can be done to a Corvette from letting it sit outside for years and years. In the end, this one is worth only $900 as a parts car.
