Milestone Corvettes have become a fascinating part of the Corvette story. Prior to the white 1992 1,000,000th Corvette convertible, no one was paying any attention to numerical milestones or first and last of any Corvettes. When the C4 1984 Corvette came out, 51,547 customers said, “I’ll take one!” When the C3 1968 Mako Shark II-inspired Corvette was unleashed, 28,569 fans placed their order. The ’63 Sting Ray was a total game-changer from the C1 and 21,513 customers got in line with the roadster out-selling the now-iconic split-window coupe, 10,919 units to 10,594 units. And when the ’53 Corvette came out, most of America said, “What’s that?” Continue reading “

NEW Corvette License Plate Art Prints – 2005 to 2014
Dateline: 9-25-14 – Our new Corvette License Plates Art Print Series is making progress. With 60 years of Corvettes and many model variations, plus four different print layouts, it’s a BIG project. Here’s where I am as of today.
I started out with one year for each generation Corvette, as shown on the slider at the top of the homepage. This week I have added the following year Coupe Corvettes: C6 – 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 Grand Sport Coupe, 2011 Grand Sport Coupe, 2012 Grand Sport Coupe, and 2013 Grand Sport Coupe.
Each year print is available in four layouts: a red-to-white, black-to-white, blue-to-white, and one print with all three layouts.
Plus, we have available the 1962 Corvette, the 1967 Corvette Coupe, the 1982 Corvette, the 1996 Corvette Coupe, and 2002 Corvette Coupe. And for owners and fans of the Special Edition Corvettes, we have all 16 Special Edition Corvettes from the 1978 25th Anniversary Corvette to the awesome 2014 60th Anniversary 427 Convertible.
Every 11” x 17” print is signed and numbered, then shrink wrapped on 12”x18” cardboard and shipped via USPS Priority Mail for fast delivery for just $29.95 + $6.95 S&H.
Specific number prints are available upon request. Continue reading “Corvette License Plate Art Print Series Update”
2011 Corvettes at Carlisle Weeks continues with the first of our NEW “VETTE Shows”
Yes, Hurricane Irene put a wet blanket on the 30th Corvettes at Carlisle Show Saturday and Sunday of the 3-day annual event. But Friday was SUPER! Carlisle, Pennsylvania is located in the southern part of Pennsylvania and it tends to get rather hot and humid in the Summer. I’ve attended a few Carlisle events in the Summer that were absolutely STIFLING! Hurricane aside, we lucked out on Friday because the humidity wasn’t too bad, the temps were in the mid-80s, and there was a slight breeze. Over, you’d call it a “nice Summer day.” Between the two of us, Karen and I took about 500 photos of Corvettes.
We’ll be sharing our photographic coverage of the show over the next week or so and Continue reading “Vette Shows: The Sights of C6 Corvettes at the 2011 30th Corvettes at Carlisle Show”
