LS9 Gets Dropped into a Warbonnet Yellow 1971 Corvette

It seems our new favorite tuners in Houston have a thing for LS9 crate motors. We featured Fastlane last week as wicked photos of a Chevy Silverado with an LS9 surfaced on their facebook page. Now we’ve got some photos of another LS9 install, this one more appropriate as the supercharged 6.2 liter V8 finds a new home in a classic 1971 Corvette.

Bloomington Gold 2011: Certification Day

Article contributed by Steve Burns

The highlight of the annual Bloomington Gold Corvette show each year is the judging activity. Participants from all over the country converge on the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL each June for the once-a-year opportunity to achieve Survivor, Gold, and/or Benchmark awards. At this event, cars don’t compete against one another. Rather they compete against a standard which is the condition in which the car was delivered from the factory. “No better, no worse, no different.” Click past the jump to learn more about the judging awards and to check out some pics from this years certification judging.

Mecum's Bloomington Gold Auction Rakes in $5.8 million in Corvette Sales

Article and photos contributed by Steve Burns

The atmosphere at this year’s Bloomington auction was interesting. The tent was generally full of bidders and spectators all weekend. Surprisingly, though, bids were hard to come by at times. This can be seen in the numerous cars that sold for less than $10,000. On the flip side of this were the high-end cars. The 1971 ZR2 opened and bidding promptly stalled at $400k. A few moments later the bid was raised to $410k, the reserve was lifted, and the ZR2 was off to its new home.

Baldwin-Motion Corvette at Eyes on Design Show

Article contributed by Steve Burns

A couple weeks back we stumbled across a rare Baldwin-Motion Corvette for sale on eBay. On Father’s Day we took Dad to the 24th annual Eyes on Design Car Show which is held on the scenic grounds of the Edsel and Eleanor Ford house in Grosse Pointe Shore, MI. Being an invitation-only all-car show, we didn’t expect to see but just a couple of nice Corvettes in attendance. Imagine our surprise when we noticed this yellow 1970 Baldwin-Motion Phase III Corvette tucked in with a group of Yenko, Nickey, and Baldwin-Motion cars. Check out some pics of this rare bird after the jump.

[PICS] Canterbury Vette Fest

Article contributed by Steve Burns

It was a busy Father’s Day weekend here at CorvetteBlogger.com. We kicked off back to back car shows first by participating in the Canterbury Vette Fest held in Lake Orion, MI. This was the 7th annual event at this location hosted by the GMC Corvette Set club. Mother Nature and roughly 100 Corvettes made for a fantastic day on the grounds of Olde World Canterbury Village. Corvettes from all generations were sprinkled about the scenic streets, sidewalks, and green grass of the village. The event was free to spectators and raised over $3,000 dollars for the Leader Dogs for Blind. Check out some pics from the event after the jump.
