Rare, low-mileage Corvettes always catch the eyes of fiberglass fans everywhere, especially twin turbo B2Ks from the stable of Callaway Cars Inc. Right now, as we speak, eBay has for sale a Callaway B2K convertible with an astonishing 3,720 miles on the odometer. We’re now more than halfway through the 10-day auction with a starting bid of $40,000 and there have been zero additional bids. This may be your chance to throw your hat into the Callaway ring with a bid or two.
Every year at Thanksgiving, we go up to our ancestorial stomping grounds in Southeastern Kentucky for family, food and fun. And sometimes that fun involves blowing up a pumpkin with tannerite, an explosive substance that ignites when shot with a gun.
So when I saw the North Texas Viper club using tannerite to blow up a C4 Corvette, I had to share this even if it involves the death of Corvette at the hands of a rival club. Just a couple ounces of tannerite will completely blow the kingdom come out of a pumpkin so I can only imagine what a larger amount could do to America’s favorite sports car.
One of the great things you can do as a Corvette owner is to support the factory Corvette C7.Rs by going to one of the TUDOR United Sports Car races held around the Country. And Chevrolet makes it real easy to go by sponsoring a Corvette Corral at select races where owners can safely park their cars, listen to seminars from Doug Fehan, Harlan Charles and Ron Fellows as well as enjoy the camaraderie that we share with other Corvette owners.
Arriving this weekend at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, we were amazed to see a record number of attendees who parked their cars in the Corvette Corral. From C1s to C7 Z06s, there was a little something for everyone parked under the bright Florida sun.
It’s the final Friday in the month of February and that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” photo gallery. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 41 black Corvettes spanning seven generations. We’re admitting in advance that the gallery does feature more black Corvette Z06s than ever before but that’s because they are more plentiful now that they are out on the streets.
Malcolm Konner was a prominent Corvette dealer from the 1960s to the early 1980s who claimed to be “The World’s Largest Corvette Dealer” in his newspaper ads.
“Because we sold and serviced so many Corvettes,” Konner’s son RJ Konner told Corvette Magazine, “we were an invaluable resource for Chevrolet. They had a technician or engineer at the dealership 80 percent of the time to troubleshoot and help evaluate problems that came up in the field.
Collectors listen up! Check out this ultra low mileage 1990 Corvette ZR-1 that is currently listed on eBay. No doubt this car was purchased as an investment as its been stored away for 25 years. With the plastic wrapping still on the seats and the window sticker still affixed to the windshield, the car has managed just 90 original miles in all those years.

A 1986 Corvette wound up upside down after being struck by a 1999 Blazer Thursday morning, according to a Colorado State Patrol spokesman.
The accident happened in Hygiene, Colo., at 75th Street and Colorado 66 when the driver of the westbound Blazer turned into the path of the oncoming Corvette.
Sometimes love is not just in the stars – it’s in the cars!
For instance, I met Cindy, my wife of 25+ years, on a warm spring Saturday night while cruising the streets of Dalton, Ga., in my red 1986 Corvette.
It was really love at first sight, at least for me, as I quickly – and boldly for me – asked her to go to a Corvette show at Day’s Chevrolet in Acworth, Ga., the next afternoon.
