Michigan 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.

Zora Arkus-Duntov, aka Mr. Corvette, had close ties to Porsche too

By: Jerry Burton When you hear the sound of a raspy flat six in a Porsche 911, it’s likely you don’t think of Zora Arkus-Duntov. After all, he’s Mr. Corvette. Most credit Zora for saving the Corvette after GM nearly killed it due to poor sales after the Ford Thunderbird debuted in 1955. He also took many risks to establish Corvette’s racing pedigree during a time when GM was officially not involved in motorsports....

1964 Corvette Survivor Was Driven As It Should

There’s something about a C2 Corvette that demands admiration, even – and maybe especially – one with 53 years worth of living etched into it. This 1964 Corvette coupe up for sale on eBay won’t win any Top Flight awards anytime soon, with its splotchy, chipped, and scratched paint and its ragged seats and faded carpet inside. But this Corvette might just win a sentimental award just for surviving. You see, it had the...
