Own a Piece of Corvette History! 1988 ZR-1 Corvette Prototype Up For Auction!

Car auctions are a lot of fun because you never know how much or how little any given car is going to sell for. Next month at the Mecum Kissimmee Auction, January 5 – 14, a truly rare ZR-1 Corvette will hit the auction block. When the ZR-1 finally came out as a 1990 Corvette is was a very big deal. This was truly an exotic Corvette with its Lotus DOHC all-aluminum engine and wide body.

Mecum’s experts estimate that the car will sell for between $190,000-to-$225,000, but we’ll see. That’s why I’ll be recording the auction and posting it to our Corvette Report YouTube channel. 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 Story of the ZR-1 Corvette – C4 1990-1991 ZR-1 Corvette: Part 2 of 4

Chevrolet milked the automotive press and stoked Corvette fans for nearly two years with rumors and sneak-peeks of the ZR-1 Corvette! This was obviously pre-Internet, so all the stoking was done the old-fashioned way, via paper magazines. This was to be the biggest power increase since the introduction of the big-block engine in 1965 and the first time there was an optional engine since the last big-block in ‘74. But unlike the 1974 $250 optional LS4 454 engine, the LT-5-powered ZR-1 was a total-car package deal that cost a thunderous $27,016 ON TOP OF the $31,979 base Corvette! Read More
