Black Rose Metallic Production Numbers Finalized for 2018 Corvettes

When the Bowling Green Assembly Plant closed at the end of July, it officially marked the end of Black Rose Metallic as an exterior color for the 2018 model year Corvette. The color was a throwback to the exterior of the same name that was offered from 1992-1994 C4 Corvettes. Black Rose Metallic returned in 2017 for the C7 Corvette and it was very well received by Corvette enthusiasts looking to break away from...

1972 Corvette Convertible With Just 967 Miles

Photo Credit: SuperChevy.com Imagine buying your brand new 454-equipped Corvette and then finding out that the annual insurance premium will be slightly less than 20% of the sales price. Now what do you do? Park it for 40+ years, naturally. That’s just what Jim Kevan did after bringing his shiny new roadster home. Today it shows just 967 miles on the odometer. At the ripe old age of 22 Kevan stopped in at Grabiak...

2018 Corvette ZR1 Convertible Prototypes Now Wearing Chrome Wheels

  These “on the road” sightings of the 2018 Corvette ZR1 prototypes always seem to come in batches, and now just like that we have two recent videos to share showing the smaller wing ZR1 Convertibles on the streets of Michigan. At the beginning of May, a reader captured what we think is the best view yet that the smaller wing ZR1 represents the first active aerodynamics system for the C7. That prototype Coupe...

Corvettes on Craigslist: Exiled 1967 Corvette on the Island of Guam

If someone buys this 1967 Corvette roadster, they’ll either need to make a road (or make that boat) trip to Guam. The seller says he’s back in Texas now, but the car remained behind in the Western Pacific. That means either a long boat ride or more likely having the car shipped back to the States. He claims to have shipped several cars and says “no problem there.” In his Craigslist post, the seller...

1958 Corvette Gets First Bath in 30 Years

Would you look good after taking a 30 year slumber? That’s the debate going on in the comments section after video of this dirty green 1958 Corvette receiving a bath was posted on the facebook page of 40s & 50s American Cars. The car does have a remarkable amount of dust and dirt and you can see that it takes a soapy towel to effectively remove the grime from the 58’s washboard hood. Others...

Owner Recounts 40 Years Behind the Wheel of His 1963 Corvette Coupe

Photo Credit: Prestige MotorCar Photography John Mrock is one of those lucky folks who has owned the same split window Corvette since the late 1960s. Not only that, but he also has some great memories of cruising in that 1963 ’Vette along some of the best beaches in the world while he was stationed in Hawaii during a stint in the Navy. Of course, he probably wishes he had been able to keep all...

Connecticut Man is Reunited with His Dad’s 1964 Corvette

Over the past few weeks, you’ve been reading all about the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum. But here’s a story that goes further and explains WHY there is a National Corvette Museum in the first place. When it comes to Corvettes, people do fanatical things. Take Todd Baggett of Southbury, Connecticut for example. As he grew up in Detroit in the 1960s and ’70s, Todd listened to his father, Jack F. Baggett, tell...

Help This Family Find Their Late Brother’s Long Lost 1966 Custom Corvette

Corvettes on eBay: 1970 Corvette Garage Find

Can you find the 1970 Corvette Stingray in this photo? We admit we had trouble finding anything that looked like a Chevy at first, thanks to the collection of junk that was stored on top of the car over the past 32 years. By the time you get to the bottom of this eBay post, though, you can see there really is what looks to be a fairly nice Stingray that recently exited the...

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1972 Corvette Widebody

Back in the 1970s, the Greenwood-style widebody kit was popular with customizers who wanted an unusual C3 Corvette. This 1972 Corvette factory convertible appears to have been treated to such a transformation, maybe from an Eckler’s kit. Now it’s up for sale on craigslist in Casper, Wyoming, where the seller is asking $6500 for this unusual Corvette that would definitely draw some looks. Whether those looks are appreciative might be up for debate. The...

Family and Friends of Don Oliverio Donate his 1984 Corvette to the Corvette Museum

  Photo Credit: National Corvette Museum For those of us old enough to have been around back then, the unveiling of the fourth generation 1984 Corvette in 1983 was as big a deal as the C7 was to the younger folks in 2013. While the performance may not be on a par with today’s models, the C4 generation nevertheless can be proud that it proudly carried the torch for America’s Sports Car and in...
