Auction ending Friday

1979 black corvette coupe 1 1

1979 Chevrolet Corvette L82 4-Speed
This one is rare for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the cars originality.  The paint, and interior are original, and it is believed the 32k miles showing on the odometer is accurate.  What makes it even more unusual is the fact that the original engine was replaced under factory warranty by Larry Barnes Chevrolet in Bosie, ID. on 4/20/79.  We have the documentation to prove it, as well as the original window sticker, P.D.I. sheet, dealer correspondence and more.

Callaway Supercharged C8 Corvette

Callaway Kind Of Announced a
Supercharger kit for the C8 Corvette

Callaway, a household name among Corvette enthusiasts for tuning and improving Corvettes, made two announcements at Corvettes at Carlisle last week. The first is a supercharger kit for the C8 Corvette. The second is a 35th-anniversary package celebrating their partnership with GM.

The supercharger kit won’t be sold as a standalone system but instead will be sold through authorized GM dealers on a turnkey basis. The actual installation will be at Callaway’s Connecticut or California facility and then shipped to the selling dealer.

Current C8 owners can also have their cars upgraded through the “Second Chance” program, but more details have yet to be released. Customers can reserve a serialized production slot with a $1,000 deposit at this time by contacting Callaway directly.

The Callaway supercharged C8 Corvette will come with a three-year/36,000-mile […]

Pebble Beach 2022 Concours D’elegance Top Award Winner

Congratulations To The Winner Of
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance


Photo Credit: Pebble Beach Concours

A unique Duesenberg reprised its early role as Concours winner by taking the top prize at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. 

This year, 220 cars from 19 countries and 33 states pulled onto the competition field of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The car named Best of Show was the 1932 Duesenberg J Figoni Sports Torpedo of Lee R. Anderson Sr.

“This rare Duesenberg marries American might with European style,” said Concours Chairman Sandra Button. “It did well in some early rallies and concours. Then, its history took a turn, with chassis separated from body. The story of its resurrection is one of pure passion.”

An American car last won Best of Show in 2013, when a 1934 Packard Twelve took the top […]

Christian von Koenigsegg Says the C8 Chevy Corvette Is ‘Mind-Blowing’

The C8 Chevrolet Corvette cracked the domestic mid-engine sports car code when it was revealed in the summer of 2019. Sub-three-second zero to 60 runs and a V8 behind the driver typically meant six-figure price tags—but not anymore thanks to GM. Despite it being in a class of its own due to its roughly $60,000 starting price and performance specs, it’s caught the attention of automotive bigwigs such as Koenigsegg founder, Christian von Koenigsegg. In conversation with him at The Quail during Monterey Car Week, Koenigsegg told me how impressed he was with the ‘Vette’s value.

“What a bang for the buck,” said Koenigsegg. He explained he wasn’t just impressed by the C8’s price, but also joked about feeling relieved that his cars could “still outrun it.” Yeah, it would be awkward if they couldn’t. And if you think Koenigsegg wouldn’t be excited over something as low-dollar as America’s sports car, think again.

The nearly $2,000,000 Gemera. Koenigsegg

Stunning Dual-Ghia Selling On Bring A Trailer

This incredible car is a high performance vehicle from some unlikely sources.
When you first see this car many of us might wonder what exactly it is because of its wild style and unique design. The front fascia is something akin to that of the Thunderbird while the rear fins remind us of a classic Cadillac from the 1950s and early ’60s. Of course, this is wildly different from what the car actually is as the body was designed by an Italian company, Ghia, dedicated to style and aerodynamic performance while the engine was provided by the Dual Motors company of Detroit, Michigan. So what exactly is this stunning vehicle which seems to have roots in multiple automotive cultures?

Long the Arbiter of Elegance in America, Lincoln Marks its Centennial as a Successful Automaker This Year.

Begun in 1917, Lincoln Motor Company initially built the Liberty engines that powered the aircraft of World War I. After the war, a transition to automaking led to financial downturn, but Ford Motor Company came to its rescue in 1922, purchasing the company and quickly righting it. Under the guidance of Edsel Ford, Lincoln soon established a reputation for luxury, offering custom bodies on Models L and then K. The […]

The One that Got Away: Corvette Mike Remembers ‘Life Altering’ First Corvette

051022_14b 1

Mike Vietro was a tough kid who emerged from the hardscrabble streets of Everett, an enclave of north Boston. He pumped gas at that formative age when many young Americans become transfixed by cars and the speed and freedom they embody. Mike became transfixed by Corvettes back then and his passion has only grown since. He has built a full life around the brand, becoming an industry trailblazer along the way as the owner of Corvette Mike, headquartered in Anaheim, California, prime car country.

Today, Corvette Mike continues to thrive as one of the top Corvette classics dealerships in the country, specializing in the sales and service of America’s premier sports car. In 40-plus years of operation, Corvette Mike and his staff have bought and sold more than 12,000 cars, some 90% of them Corvettes. His shop also sells […]

Corvette Racing is still trying to get used to the new GTD spec’ed Corvette C8.R and will now have a “new challenge” in running as a single-car operation. The team has not run a single car IMSA race in more than 20 years.

The Pratt & Miller-run factory squad will enter a solo Corvette C8.R in Saturday’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, with their resources split this year between single-car efforts in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship.

With Tommy Milner and Nick Tandy in the team’s WEC GTE-Pro entry this weekend, Nicky Catsburg will team up with reigning GTLM class champions Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor in the WeatherTech Championship season-long […]

Corvette Plant getting Ready To Strike Again

Corvette Assembly Line Workers Are getting Ready To Strike over Jobs being Outsourced

c8 assembly line

C8 Assembly Line.

The members of UAW Local 2164, representing the C8 Corvette assembly plant workers, have almost unanimously rejected the manufacturer’s latest contract offer. The sticking point is GM’s reliance on outsourcing a range of jobs to non-union labor. Negotiating better terms for sanitation and health and safety rank among the union’s other stated priorities.

GM’s previous contract with Local 2164 expired two years ago, and although a strike isn’t imminent its members have already approved one if negotiations with GM disintegrate.

GM responded by saying, “We are disappointed that UAW Local 2164 voted down the local contract. We will continue to meet with the local union to understand the […]

Top Gear UK 2023 Corvette Z06 Video.

Ollie Marriage from the British automotive review show Top Gear recently came to Las Vegas to check out the upcoming 2023 Corvette Z06. While Chevrolet is not letting any reviewers get behind the wheel of the 2023 Corvette Z06 (except for Jay Leno that is), they were able to get up-close with both a Silver Flare Metallic base coupe and a Sebring Orange Tintcoat Z07 convertible. That gave their viewers a better idea of what this race-bred Chevy is all about.

Ollie Marriage goes over the base C8 Z06 and compares it to the Porsche 911 GT3, while the addition […]

Make a C8 Your Classroom

Do you have two days available with nothing to do? I recommend you spend them behind the wheel of a mid-engine C8 at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School.

There are other great racing schools out there that offer instruction that cater to varying abilities and are staffed with incredibly talented instructors, but the Ron Fellows school offers the mid-engine C8 as the classroom. This makes the Ron Fellows Driving School, based out of the luxurious Spring Mountain Motor Resort and Country Club in Pahrump, Nevada, one of the best for Corvette owners; other car owners also would enjoy this program.

GM Restarts C8 Assembly After Tornado

General Motors restarted operations at its assembly plant on December 20th, nine days after a violent tornado swept through Kentucky and damaged the facility. GM is not taking any chances and will be scrapping any Corvettes that show damage. This includes not only the cars being assembled on the line at the time of the tornado, but will also include the finished cars parked outside the factory waiting for shipment.

According to Corvette Action Center, approximately 115 Corvettes inside the assembly plant “were damaged beyond repair and are being scrapped. Dealers with customer orders for their cars will have to resubmit the orders into GM’s Order Workbench System.” Hopefully the affected customers will be pushed to the front of the line and not have […]

As I am sure you already know, a number of tornadoes swept through portions of six states in the Midwest and Southern U.S. over the weekend. One of the twisters landed in Kentucky and traversed over 200 miles on the ground, killing more than 50 people. The storms also made their presence felt at the Corvette Action Center and the GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant that builds the Chevrolet Corvette. All the plant employees are safe at both locations, but the damage is bad enough to the assembly plant to stop production for at least a week. The National Corvette Museum did not […]

General Motors has made it well known that they have prospects for an all-electric future. Their site even stated on their site that they will have 30 new EVs globally by 2025.

We assume some electrification plans for the Chevrolet Corvette are in the works, but we just don’t know what they are. We have seen spy shots of what looks like a hybrid, maybe the ‘E-Ray’ trademarked back in 2015, but what form this will take is not known. Some have guessed it could be an all-wheel drive hybrid with a twin turbo’ed mid-mounted internal-combustion engine driving the rear wheels; the front wheels powered by a […]
