Comments Off on Happy 66th Birthday to iconic Chevrolet Corvette
We are so proud to have a 1953 Corvette on the showroom floor.
The Chevrolet Corvette may be celebrating its 66th birthday today June 30, but it is in no way old or stale. In fact, the Chevrolet Corvette is currently the talk of the town, as the next-generation, mid-engined model is slated to be unveiled in a smidge over two weeks – on July 18th. The hype is very real, too, as the last C7 Corvette to leave the production line fetched a cool $2.7 million US dollars, while a pair of C8 reveal tickets sold for $15,000.
Today, we acknowledge this reverence and appreciation for the Chevrolet Corvette nameplate, and celebrate the fact that it became America’s Sports Car 63 years [...]
Comments Off on These brothers bond over co-owned 1972 Corvette
This story hits home. Thoughtfully, we sometimes have to explain the bond we have as Corvette owners, or as enthusiasts. Is it nostalgia? Perhaps not only about classic cars since we love our newer C7 Corvettes too. It’s often about the connection to family, a sense of pride, or the feeling we have when we’re on the road. For these two brothers, the bond between them sits comfortably in a C3.

Comments Off on Ann-Shirley’s 1962 Corvette daily driver for 50 years!
Ann-Shirley Goodell ordered her new Corvette roadster on Jan. 15, 1962 at King Chevrolet in Cincinnati, Ohio. The car cost $3,747.85 with taxes. This was slightly more than her annual salary as a nurse.
A native of the B.C. Interior city of Trail, the University of British Columbia nursing graduate had moved to Ohio for her graduate degree and a research job. Her father, who worked at the Trail metals smelter for 40 years, suggested she get a new Oldsmobile, drive it for two years, bring it into Canada without import duties and then he would purchase it.
“I drive it every day. This has been my baby all these [...]
Comments Off on Barn find! 55 Corvette Hasn’t Seen Daylight In 40 Years
Tucked away for 40 years, this 1955 Chevrolet Corvette is out, don’t even think about trying to buy it.
Anyone who owns a rare classic car like a 1955 Corvette could tell you that car collectors are constantly trying to buy them up, and that’s the exact reason Bob Doucette put his 1955 Corvette into hiding — that, and wanting a safe place to preserve the car.
Doucette has owned the car since his father gave it to him as a late graduation present in 1968. His dad was already a Corvette enthusiast who was fascinated by the cars since the model’s inception. When he [...]
Comments Off on “Wild Car Wednesday” 1963 Corvette Frame-off!
It’s “Wild Car” Wednesday with limited-time pricing that expires in a week or when we sell the car –whichever comes first. This week we’re featuring a stunning 1963 Corvette Convertible.
1963 Corvette Convertible, Saddle Tan
Frame-off restoration. The paint, interior, frame, stainless and chrome are in excellent condition. The reproduction radial white wall tires enhance the driving experience and the car starts, stops and handles better than when it was new. It’s springtime…so it’s priced to sell, and a must see for any mid-year Corvette buyer.

Comments Off on Earth Swallowed 8 Corvettes Five Years Ago This Week
Remember the Corvette Museum sinkhole?
At 5:39 a.m. on February 12, 2014 at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Mother Nature struck in a very unkind way. A 40-foot sinkhole opened up inside the Skydome and eight rare and unique Corvettes took a 30-foot plunge to the bottom. The disaster was also caught on film in case anyone doubts this really happened.
Never let a crisis go to waste, the museum took advantage of the sinkhole by turning it into a tourist attraction once geologists confirmed it was stable. There were even plans at one point to permanently keep the sinkhole because of the large crowds it drew, but ultimately the decision was made to fill it in.
Comments Off on Corvette Mike Midwest at the Chicago Auto Show!
The Chicago Auto Show is the premiere “new car” show in the country. It’s bigger than any other auto show and includes specialty cars and classics. Not enough people know about the classics!
We’re looking forward to another Chicago Blackhawks Day including a visit from former Chicago Blackhawk Bobby Hull to the Chevy Dealers exhibit at Noon, Friday February 15th. Chevys and Blackhawks are a good match. And, Corvette Mike Midwest is here! Thanks to our friends at Windy City Corvettes, we’re part of the showcase of classic Corvettes on display.
