The 2018 Corvettes at Carlisle event is history and from what I have heard from Vette Vues editor, Bonnie Wolf and out Corvette friend, Rick Walker, it was a beautiful show!

Pamela Hirschhorn of NortheastWheelsEvents.com caught up with Rick and his beautiful 1976 Short Tail Maco Shark, and posted this very nice video on their YouYube channel Read More


1969 Baldwin-Motion Phase-III GT Corvette SOLD for $95,000! – VIDEO

Back in the day, this was a SUPER expensive custom car. In 1969 a fully-loaded 427/435 Corvette cost just over $6,000 – as much as a Cadillac! A Phase-III-GT could easily cost around $12,000! In addition to the basic Motion Performance package of performance parts, the Phase-III GT had extensive body work. The only part of the fiberglass body that was not modified was the doors! Joel Rosen even came up with a fastback rear glass setup that opened up the stowage area behind the seats as much as the 1963-1967 Sting Ray Coupes! Read More

Corvette Timeline Tales: Corvette Racecars ROMP Daytona 200 GTO Class!

We’re not sure how often this has happened, but “not often” is a safe bet. This was the inaugural season of IMSA’s GT Championship racing series. The cars were Grand Tour-style racecars that ran in the GTU and GTO classes. “GTU” class was for cars with engines under 2.5-liters and “GTO” class was for cars with engines over 2.5-liters. At the end of the 200-mile race, Don Yenko and Dave Heinz came in 1st overall and 1st in the GTO class, followed by SEVEN other Corvettes! Read More


NEW!!! “America’s “Old Glory” Sports Car” Corvette Prints Series

After numerous prototype layouts I settled in on “America’s “Old Glory” Sports Car”. The first one was kind of easy, but once layout completed, I knew I had a ton of work ahead of me. What started out as a fairly simple idea turned into my Project for 2017! And now, it is ready to present.

As of this announcement, we have “America’s Old Glory” art print layouts of every year Corvette from 1953 to 2017. Soon I will be adding the 2018 Corvette, as well as the upcoming ZR1 and Mid-Engine C8 Corvette when it is released next year.

Each print measures 11×17 and is printed in full-color on mat-finished heavy card stock, and signed and numbered by yours truly. Every print is shrink wrapped on 12×18 cardboard so that your print arrives flat and clean. Price – just $24.95, plus $6.95 for USPS Priority Mail shipping. Read More


The Motion Performance Experience – Part II

Scott: Welcome back to Far Out Radio. Joel “Mr. Motion” Rosen and Marty Schorr, the creators of the Baldwin Motion Phase-III supercars of the 1960s and 1970s, are here with us this evening. We’re doing some bench racing and talking about those ground-pounding Chevy supercars from back in the 1960s and 1970s. So Joel, you got the drag racing bug, huh?

Joel: Yea, yea, I got that drag racing bug. One of the things, just to digress just a bit, is that back in the gas station I had, I was one of the first guys with a dynamometer in New York. I was into things like oscilloscopes before people knew what an oscilloscope was – on a car anyway, and I started to teach myself about that stuff. Then a product came out that was a capacitive discharge ignition system, the forerunner of all of the capacitive discharge units, and MSDs and all that. It was an EI-4 and an EI-5, and started to read up on this and the material said that you could run .005 to .006 sparkplug gaps and the engine will run much better and keep it in tune, bla, bla, bla.

The Corvette Funny Car Curse – Fact, or FICTION – Videos

No, this isn’t a whoo-whoo story that you might hear on Coast to Coast AM. Through the ’60s and ’70s funny car days, cars wearing a Corvette body shape, had unfortunate luck. There’s no metaphysical “curse”, it’s just aerodynamics. There are many variables.

But an honest look back clearly shows that the problem was with the front of the Corvette body. We were all looking at the curvaceous fender humps that looked a lot like Sophia Loren! How could it NOT be aerodynamic? Read More
