Last week you told us that your favorite part of Corvettes at Carlisle was checking out all of the Corvettes for sale there each year. We certainly agree with that although our checkbook does not.

General Motors is creating two special C7s to be raffled off during the National Corvette Museum’s 20th Anniversary coming up at the end of August.
