The Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance Celebrates 25 Years This AugustAugust 10, 2023
The Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance Presented by Rolex was instituted in 1998 as a way to counter the perception that concours cars were static museum pieces, also referred to as “trailer queens.” Now, the Tour is an integral part of the famed Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and a rare opportunity to see many of these beautiful cars in motion. The Tour begins in Pebble Beach with a drive down 17-Mile Drive passing in front of The Lodge, and then make their way down the Big Sur coastline and back, ending back in Pebble Beach. There is also a strong incentive for owners to take part. If two cars tie in class competition during the Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, and one car was part of the tour and the other was not, the tour car will win.
The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum will be giving one lucky winner the opportunity to bring home a 2023 Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Coupe with the Z07 Performance Package plus $25,000 cash to pay for the taxes. The final day to get your entries is coming fast with the deadline set for Sunday, August 13th. The grand prize winner will be named on August 19th at 10:00 am CDT.
This 2023 Z06 has the exclusive 70th Anniversary White Pearl Metallic exterior with Ceramic leather GT2 seats. The Z06 is powered by the naturally aspirated 670-hp LT6 that revs up to 8,600 rpm, and it includes the Z07 Performance Package with the carbon fiber aero package. The winner also receives $25K to pay for the taxes! Your donations help to support and promote the non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and their mission of promoting sprint car racing.

Vince S.’s 1995 Pace Car #296
Here is a picture of us with our 1995 Indy Pace Car #296 at a Corvette Show at the Saratoga (NY) Automobile Museum. We were just there recently for the “007 Bond in Motion Exhibit” with many of the James Bond movie cars as well as one of the submarines used in the movies, very cool!!!
This 1995 Corvette Indy Pace Car #296 was featured in four National Corvette Calendars!!! It was purchased new from the local Chevrolet Dealer. It has won numerous Corvette Show Awards as well as Best of Show! Always exciting to drive and gets a lot of attention!
Take care and thanks for the Corvette Mike Key Chain.
Just Arrived Today!
Kindigit Designs of Bitchin Rides and Corvette Mike have collaborated to bring you the Coolest of Bitchin Rides — a series dedicated to the ultimate resto-mods. The last of a true breed of combustion engines purpose-built by Lingenfelter, developing enough horsepower to rip the steel cords right off these Michelins.
This combination of a very limited, select edition of carbon fiber bodies mated to Roadster Shop chassis culminated into something very special. The first, from scratch, retro look 1953 Corvette Roadster with all the trick goodies of modern-day Sportage transportation with a flare to dare you not to stare!
The 2 owner 1967 featured here has a very interesting story (we all love a good Corvette story). Sold new in Victoria B.C. It is believed to be the very first Corvette sold in that province! And because it was a Canadian car, it comes with great GM of Canada docs, including Protect-O-Plate! It’s equipped with the L36 427 mated up to a Powerglide automatic, which makes it quite a rare piece!
The car has undergone a frame-on restoration, which included new paint, engine rebuild, exhaust, and much more. The result was rewarded with an N.C.R.S. Regional Top Flight Award on 10/22. Options include both tops (hard and soft), power 4-wheel disc brakes, power steering, telescoping steering column, and rebuilt factory am/fm radio! It’s a great driver and a Corvette you would enjoy driving daily, if desired.
