Work continued today on the sinkhole inside the National Corvette Museum after three of the eight Corvettes were rescuing earlier this week. Although the next recoveries were not expected to happen for a few weeks while the crew reinforces the Sky Dome Spire, the opportunity arose today to grab not one but two more Corvettes, the 1992 1 Millionth Corvette and the 1984 PPG Pace Car.
The workers at the National Corvette Museum have had a very busy Monday. This morning they were able to successfully extricate the 2009 Corvette ZR1 Blue Devil from the sinkhole inside the Sky Dome and this afternoon they went after car number two which was the 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette known as “Ruby”.
One of my all time favorite annual Corvette events is the NCRS Winter Regional in Kissimmee, Florida. While I love doing the stories and coverage of the new C7 Corvette Stingray and Z06, there’s just something about walking through a field literately strewn with used Corvette parts and accessories for every generation but the C7.
The curtain came down Sunday, January 19th, on the most successful Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction in history. The FOX televised, eight-day event, sometimes called the “world’s greatest reality show,” was hosted in Barrett-Jackson’s brand new bricks and mortar facility with much improved space and amenities, a building that was completed in only eleven months time and completed only days before the auction start on Sunday, January 12th. Barrett-Jackson’s former main auction tent, the largest tent in the world, was connected to the new permanent auction building and created an impressive almost mile long facility from one end to the other.
If you can’t make up your mind whether to buy a Corvette or a Viper, then this might be the perfect car for you.
The owner of this C4 Corvette has done major body work and changed it into a 1996-2002 Viper lookalike. The owner doesn’t say which year Corvette it is, but based on the dash, it looks like a 1985-89 before the interior changed in 1990.
The National Corvette Museum has received its largest donation ever – a collection of 10 Corvettes in the Don Messner Collection.
Messner, who passed away in May from melanoma, wanted to inspire others to make similar donations in the future.
The PinkVette has generated a lot of green on its recent travels around the Northeast raising money to fight breast cancer.
The specially painted 1984 Corvette has spent the past 18 months as the cornerstone of the “Cruisin for a Cure” campaign that has already raised twice as much money as organizers had anticipated.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a… Corvette?
That’s one way to describe a high-speed chase involving a stolen C4 Corvette that left the ground before slamming into the wall of a house in Miami, Fla., late Tuesday night.
