C7 Not Dead Yet

GM is continuing to take orders for the 2020 Corvette Stingray despite another GM official stating earlier the C8 was “nearly sold out” for 2020. IF you want one, you should order it soon.

Sales For the 2nd Quarter C7’s are Strong

The C8 is announced and dealers are taking orders, so you would think the C7 sales would be down, but this is not the case. In fact, the C7 Corvette Sales for the 2nd quarter of 2019 were basically the same as in 2018!

In fact, the C7 Corvette was again the bestselling car in its class by a significant margin, outselling the Porsche 911 & 718, Audi R8, Nissan GT-R, Mercedes-Benz AMG GT & SL, and Acura NSX combined.

These sales numbers are very impressive given that you can preorder the totally rereigned Mid-Engined C8 right now; with the first ones rolling off the assembly line the end of this year.

Featured Car of the Week

1968 LeMans Blue Camaro SS350 Coupe 
1968 Le Mans Club Camaro
What Mike likes about this car:
“In 1968 The SS Camaro had just enough Bulge to be referred to as a True Muscle Car. 

A 350 cu in (5.7 L) L48V8 (SS350) Camaro dominated the boulevards across the United States and many countries abroad!!

A little over 10% of 235,000 Camaros built were SS models. Making this one with factory AC and a 4  speed extremely rare and collectible. The thrill of driving this SS brings back an era in America that will always be cherished by us baby boomers.

Relive your youth here!”

Buy American!  Buy Muscle!  Buy a thrill ride! 

Happy Throttling!

Apex • Exit • Accelerate!!

1968 Le Mans Club Camaro int

This very sharp example came to us from a local collector client.  It’s been beautifully restored and features a matching #’s 350ci small block engine mated to a 4-spd. manual transmission.  The LeMans Blue paint glows in the sun and the interior has been completely restored.  But what sets this SS350 apart from most of the rest, is its rare factory air conditioning!
