1.20.18 – 2018 Carbon 65 Special Edition Z06 raked in an astonishing $1,400,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction tonight! Star Power played a heavy roll because not only was former Tonight Show Jay Lenno (and host of Jay Leno’s Garage) on hand, but former President of the United States, George W. Bush, both helped lift this unique Corvette WAY over the million dollar mark. Read More


Corvette Odd-Ball – 1958 Fiberfab “Centurion” Sells at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction for $91,000! – 2 VIDEOS

Obviously this is a “1959 Stingray Racer” wanna-be. I personally would not have finished off the car this way. The dual headrests is one too many, the Stinger hood is out of period by eight years, the side vents are odd, and the wheels should have been polished Hildebrand-style wheels.

But hey! It’s a customized kit car. I’m sure it’s fairly light in weight, and with the 283 Fuelie and 4:11 rear, it’ll be a hoot to drive.

The car was recently restored and despite my own personal quibbles, I’d say the car was, WELL BOUGHT. Whom ever is the new owner, I hope you really enjoy your cool new ride! – Scott 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

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


Corvette Odd-Ball – 1965 Fiberfab “Centurion” Goes On the Block January 2018

What the Centurion that is up for auction has going for it is that, aside for the Stinger hood, it appears to be period correct in many ways and very well crafted. The interior looks very much like the real Stingray Racer. The side pipes are close to the real car’s and the engine is a 283 with an early Rochester Fuel Injection setup. The black-spoke American Mags are 1960s style and the Firestone Wide Oval tires are mid-60s size.

This “may well be” one of the best Fiberfab Centurion cars built. There is NO RESERVE on this car, so someone just might be able to scoop up an interesting car for not much cash. This will might be an interesting auction that I will have to record and put on our YouTube channel. The auction date is January 19th and 20th, and the Centurion’s Lot number is 1009.1. Read More


C4 Grand Sport Coupe & Convertible On Block at Mecum Anaheim – TWO VIDEOS

A 1996 Grand Sport Coupe cost around $40,000 and the convertible went for around $48,000. So, how are these cars holding up in the market? A Grand Sport Coupe and Convertible went on the block at the Mecum Anaheim Auction on November 14, 2015. Bidding on both cars did not hit the reserve. This generally means that the sellers are asking more than the market will bear. The Coupe stalled out at $35,000 and the low volume Convertible (only 180 made) stalled at $37,500. Read More
