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.

Check out Zip Corvette’s special list of Corvette Shark products that are discounted 10% for the week. The items are already discounted so no promo codes are needed at checkout.

 

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.

[GALLERY] Vintage Corvette Racers at Indianapolis (44 Corvette photos)


While much of the Corvette racing world was focused on the factory efforts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last weekend, another historic track here in the United States was also in session. The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) was in Indianapolis for the 2015 Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational and so were the vintage Corvette racers.

Our friend Glenn Brown was there to help crew for Jim Glass and his 1965 Corvette and he captured many of the classic Corvettes doing their thing on the track.

You Can be the Champ in Sylvester Stallone's Custom 1968 Corvette


Back in October 2009, we told you about a custom 1968 Corvette on our Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Results post.

Then we showed you a photo of the new owner cruising Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Turned out to be the legendary Sylvester Stallone, who proved to be the high bidder via telephone, shelling out a whopping $198,000 back then for the 510/660 hp roadster.

[VIDEO] Allstate Returns a 1972 Corvette Stolen 43 Years Ago to its Original Owner


It was meant to be. How else can you describe it?

Terry Dietrich was born in 1953, the same year that the first Corvette rolled out of the factory.

That coincidence sparked a love affair for the Corvette that ultimately led to her decision as a 19-year-old to buy a brand new Corvette Stingray in 1972.
