Keith Busse Corvette Pace Car Collection Sells for $1,760,000!!! – VIDEO

Here’s something you don’t see every day. Keith Busse has a fascination with Corvette Pace Car. He bought his first Corvette Pace Car in the early 1980s, obviously a 1978 Corvette Pace Car. Then he got a 1986 Corvette Pace Car and just kept going.

Up until 1998 Chevrolet offered Corvette Pace Car replicas in limited quantities, so if you could afford the premium and acted quickly, you could own a Corvette Pace Car, minus the actual track hardware that typically included strobe lights and safety equipment. Corvette Pace Cars never needed any extra power enhancements because the basic car was more that capable of handling its task. Read More

Vette Videos: Hot Lap Action With the 2012 Indy 500 ZR1 Corvette Pace Car

What’s really interesting about the ‘12 Indy 500 ZR1 Pace Car is that it is the most powerful car to ever pace the 500. Time was that the actual Indy race cars didn’t have 638-horsepower and topping speeds of over 200-mph was mind boggling! Fast forward to today, and we have a mass-produced automobile with all the creature comforts imaginable, packing 638-horsepower that you can live with, that’ll do 205-mph, AND has a governor on the car so that its speed will not exceed the body’s aerodynamic stability. At least, that’s what Chevrolet says about the 205-mph limiter. Read More

The Very Rare, Non-Replica Corvette Indy 500 Pace Cars

Indy 500 pace cars have become a specialty nitch all by themselves. That’s why in 1978 when it was announced by Chevrolet that a special version of the 25th Anniversary Corvette would pace the ‘78 Indy 500 and that replicas would be available, the news ignited the Corvette community, sparking a speculation mania, the likes of which Chevrolet never anticipated. Although a very nice car, for many reasons, the ‘78 Corvette Pace Car never became a hot collectible. Many can be purchased for not a lot of money.

One interesting tidbit about the Corvette Indy Pace Cars is that unlike many of the previous “enhanced” production car-based pace cars, the stock Corvette was more than up to the challenge and only required the mandated safety equipment. A C5 Corvette paced the 500 for the ‘98 race and another pace car replica package was offered. Read More

Several months ago, Chevrolet launched a popularity contest asking, “What’s the Best Chevy Ever?” On August 31, 2011 we covered the story because it had come down to the last two finalists – the 1969 SS Camaro and the 1970 SS Chevelle. Like we said, this is strictly a popularity contest, because if performance and technological achievement was the objective, the clear winner would have been the C6 ZR1. But, that was not the case.

Yesterday, Chevrolet announced the winner. So, as voted on by Chevy fans around the world, the most popular Chevy of all time is… Read More
