Forgotten 1969 Corvette Pulled from the Weeds

This 1969 Corvette T-Top Coupe had been left in the care of mother nature for an extended length of time with predictable results. No explanation as to why it came to be parked and left to the weather and rodents. Was it as simple as “it’s not running right, I’ll fix it next week” or maybe “not sure what the knocking noise is but better not drive it”?

NCRS Offers Historical Document Services for Classic Corvette Owners

I often preach the importance of documentation when purchasing a classic Corvette because those documents (invoices, tank stickers, build sheets and protect-o-plates) play a key role in determining the value of your car. Unfortunately, that documentation is not available for every Corvette out there and so the only option owners had in tracing the lineage of their Corvette was through previous owners. This fall, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) announced that through a partnership with the General Motors Heritage Center, it can offer members a new service that confirms the original delivery dealer as well as validate any GM documents you do have.

Corvettes on eBay: 1978 Batmobile Replica

We first came across Mark Shields (aka Super Genius) replica Corvette Batmobile in May 2006. A salvaged 1978 Corvette was used as the basis to create the one of kind tribute to Tim Burton’s 1989 reincarnation of the Dark Knight which featured Michael Keaton in the role of the caped crusader. The Corvette is now listed on eBay with a somewhat steep starting bid of $50,000.

Corvette Smashed By Van Carrying 2 Dead Bodies

I’m not making this up.

This is the headline from www.kitsapsun.com which described how a van in Bremerton, Washington was on its way to the morgue carrying two dead bodies when it lost control and caused a major wreck. In addition to taking out this red C3 Corvette, the van also hit a truck, a tree and a sign before taking out the porches of two houses and coming to rest in the living room of a third house.

1980 Corvette Stolen and Crashed on Route 66

For many teen drivers, a Corvette is a dream car that they hope they will one day own. For Kachina Village, Arizona teen Mitchell Mohler Jr, it was a goal made possible by shoveling snow and doing other jobs which raised several thousand dollars. His Dad kicked in the rest and together they purchased a restored 1980 Corvette. That dream of Corvette ownership has since turned into a nightmare when the Corvette was stolen from a car show and crashed on Route 66.

Custom Corvettes Shine at the Classic Corvette Club UK Nationals

The Classic Corvette Club UK held their 30th Anniversary Nationals show recently and corvette owners turned out to display a variety of the classic American sports car from all generations. Like most shows, participants entered Corvettes ranging from stock through modified, race cars and recreations. Some of the customs are very well done and so we thought a pictorial feature would be nice to show what our brothers and sisters from across the pond are doing to their Corvettes.

Corvette Ad Watch: 1969 Corvette Magazine Ad

You don’t have to beware of substitutes. There aren’t any.

If you thought the “…no substitutes” slogan was a Porsche exclusive, take another look at this ad that appeared back in 1969. In fact, looking specifically at the ’69 model year, the “America’s Only Sportscar” theme was prevelent on several Corvette ads.
