Would You Like to Own a CorvetteBlogger's 1972 LT-1 Corvette Coupe?

Up for sale at VetteFinders.com is a 1972 LT-1 Corvette Coupe that is currently owned by our own Steve Burns who heads up CorvetteBlogger’s Detroit Bureau.

Low Mile 1969 L88 Corvette Heading to Mecum Monterey

What may be the best example of an L88 Corvette still around will go on the block at Mecum Auctions in Monterey, California Aug. 14-16.

No less an expert than the NCRS National Judging Chairman Roy Sinor chose this car nine years ago for a collector who asked him to find the best L88 he could.

Sinor settled on this 1969 L88 Stingray after it had undergone a two-year rotisserie restoration finished in 2005 and gave it 94 points out of a possible 100.

Corvettes on eBay: Auction of a 1977 Corvette Gets a Little Weird

We’ve all seen some auctions and classified ads that may feature a photo or two of a pretty girl with a Corvette, and for the most part if the pictures are tastefully done, it can serve as a great attention-getter.

This eBay auction listing for a 1977 Corvette seems to start okay. The teaser pic shows an attractive bikini-clad woman leaning against the red Vette, but when you click on it and then see all the pictures, you’ll think you are in the twilight zone.

After all, nothing helps sells a Corvette like girls, a ventriloquist with his ‘dummies’, and of course, Santa Claus.

[GIF] Watch Corvette's Evolution Over 7 Generations

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.

[ACCIDENT] New Owner Finds Out His Corvette was on a Crashed Auto Transporter

Back in 1989, I ordered my second new Corvette – a 1989 red on red coupe.

My girlfriend at the time and now my wife of 25 years (our anniversary is July 15, coincidentally) Cindy worked at a day care center.

She knew, of course, that I had ordered a new Corvette and just happened to be looking out the window at work one afternoon when she saw a truckload of Corvettes pass by – with a shiny red one on the back! In those days, they didn’t come giftwrapped in a white cover like the C7s!

“I think I just saw your Corvette pass by!” she called excitedly to tell me.

Sure enough, it was.

Fast forward to last weekend, and classic car collector Luigi Capilupi had a similar moment – but just one that wasn’t quite as happy for the owner as my own story.

Former Barn Find 1968 L88 Corvette Known as Bounty Hunter Headed for Mecum Monterey

This 1968 L88 Corvette has come a long way since we first saw it as a fresh barn find in 2008.

The former psychedelic-painted racer was found in North Florida by our friends at ProTeam Corvette who rehabbed the street-raced L88 that was known locally as “Bounty Hunter”. Armed with a pedigree of awards, the Rally Red Convertible is headed to Mecum’s Monterey Auction in August where it will be offered for sale.
