Ever since Chevrolet started talking about the C8 Corvette, their marketing department has been working in overdrive. Starting with the grand reveal in the blimp hangars in Orange County, CA, to the Barrett-Jackson sale of the first 2023 Z06 for $3.6 million, the enthusiasm for the Mid-Engine C8 has never stopped.

Chevy’s most recent PR event is to show off the new C8 Z06 at specific dealers. Selected dealers get to host a one or two-day event with the new C8 Corvette on display, and it also includes a Corvette specialist to present the car as well as a bunch of displays showing off the various colors, options, seats, and wheels that the Corvette could be ordered on your Corvette.

Here are just some of the upcoming dealer events (Courtesy of

Wayne H.’s 2019

I really loved the Sebring Orange color when it appeared in 2018. I found a brand new 2018 Sebring Orange Grand Sport at our local Chevrolet Dealer and I was going to trade in my 2017 Watkins Glenn Gray Stingray on the Grand Sport. Unfortunately, one of the salesmen took the 2018 out on a test ride, had turned the traction control off, lost control, and totaled it out hitting the overhead bridge support on South I29 interstate here in Sioux Falls ! Found my 2019 Sebring Orange Grand Sport at another Dealer in South Dakota, and at the time just loved the High ZTK wing on the 2019 ZR-1, so just had to do it. Mine is special as I ordered it Carbon Flash black instead of Carbon Fiber black. Just completed it real late this Summer but boy do I get the looks! Thanks!

1970 Boss 429
One of one Canadian export!

Calypso Coral w/Black interior, 429/375hp, 4-Speed

This Boss was sold new at M.S.A. Motors Ltd. in Abbotsford, B.C. It is one of one, having been the only Boss 429 sold in Canada.

The car is well documented with restoration receipts, owners’ history, Marti Report, Car Kraft travelers, and a big album of 35mm photos documenting restoration.

It’s been meticulously rotisserie restored. It is an MCA judged Concours Trailered Class Gold Award winner, a Canadian Concours d’Elegance winner, and Tech Car displayed at Bozeman MT. in Sept of ’13. Additionally, it’s been featured in Muscle Machines Magazine highlighting the restoration and the person who restored it.Priced to sell at: $395,900

1958 Panama Yellow & Powerglide
Rare, very correct C1!

283/230 with the correct engine and power glide 2-speed automatic

While only 455 came out of the factory paint booth in St Louis in 1958, Panama Yellow is rare indeed. It could be one of only a 100 plus built as such sporting that transmission. We would wager that most of you have never seen one in person.

And with ’58 Corvette’s being so rare and desirable, a Panama Yellow ’58 with a Powerglide is a top collector’s choice. It was very nicely restored and sorted by a fanatic Corvette Collector for his wife. Unfortunately, she likes her Lexus more. Her loss-your gain. Go find another one. 

This is what Mike Likes!!

Priced to sell for $120,000

1960 350 N.O.M./290hp, 4-Speed 
Absolutely beautiful frame off restoration!

Sateen Silver with Red interior

This absolutely stunning example has undergone an extensive, frame-off restoration and is essentially stock appearing. Under the hood is a GM Performance 350/290hp small block engine with additional performance parts added to make it a fantastic and very dependable driver! In front is a DeWitt radiator to keep things cool. The gear box is a rebuilt T-10 4-spd. And out back is a 3.55 geared rear end. Cosmetically, the car is show quality with a Sateen Silver two-stage paint job with White coves. The interior has been completely redone in Red with a White soft top to finish of the package. This is one of the most popular and beautiful color combinations ever offered, but it’s rare!  And when you see it, it just stops you in your tracks!

some random thoughts

Anyone can be confident with a full head of hair. But a confident bald man – there’s your diamond in the rough.

The word abbreviation sure is long for what it means.

If I wasn’t a golfer, I would still be miserable – but not as miserable.
