According to the local news this morning, the C8 Corvette they have on display this weekend is the same one that rolled across the block at Barrett-Jackson a few weeks ago to represent the sale of VIN #00001, which Rick Hendrick bought for $3M. This car is a prototype and not a production model.

This is one of my personal all-time favorite T-buckets. How can you not love a Lincoln-power V-12 flathead T-bucket? Especially when it has no speedometer?

I think this is my ideal Vega dream car. It's actually a '75 with with the '72 front and rear clips installed. It has a 383 stroker. It retains the stock interior and it's a 4-speed.IMG_3865.thumb.JPG.5a4722c5b1ea415ed1cb36dac05368bf.JPG

1994 - towards the end of the C4 era, which started in 1984. 1984 also marks the year of moving to Bowling Green KY. 1983 was the lost year of Corvette production.

This particular C8 is a prototype. It is also the very same vehicle that rolled across the Barrett-Jackson Westworld stage in January 2020 to represent the sale of VIN # 0001 to charity which sold for $3 million to Rick Hendrick. That vehicle, VIN #0001, was just built just this past week.

Great pics as usual! Thanks Frosty! I was watching when Hendricks bought the Vett, Gordon on one side and I wasn’t sure who the other guy was. If they said I missed it. I guess when you have that much money you pay what you want to get what you want!
