  There's A Sweet 2015 Corvette Up For Auction Right Now If You're Not Afraid Of A Little Work When you’re looking for a good project car, it’s easy to get caught up on the little things that are wrong. Sometimes, too much focus on the details can keep you from snapping up a really sweet deal. Take this 2015 Corvette up for sale on Copart right now. Sure, you look at that picture and you can see that it’s missing some side marker light lenses and a lot of the rubber will need to be replaced, and there’s some discoloration of the paint. But look past that, and what do you see? A Corvette, right? Well, something that takes up at least roughly the same amount of ground area as a Corvette, at least.

One of our favorite shows of the year (and by far our favorite indoor show) is the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, known to those who have been there as MCACN. The show is held at the Rosemont Convention Center in Chicago, a stone's throw from O'Hare International Airport, and we're always amazed at the quality of iron the organizer Bob Ashton pulls together every year.

  Watch a Stick-Shift Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Lap the Nurburgring in 7:13.9 <p>Crazier yet—it wasn't even an official GM test.</p>But any gearhead with two brain cells to scrape together knows that whatever lap time the 650-horsepower Camaro ZL1 can lay down at the course...the Corvette Z06 can probably beat it.

The 2017 show, held November 18-19, was of particular interest to Mustang and Ford fans as it pulled together the Ford Drag Team Invitational and had another special display called the Kar-Kraft Invitational. For the Drag Team, Ashton said, "If you are a Ford Drag Race enthusiast, pay attention here! Back in 1969 Ford campaigned an East coast and a West coast drag team to put the spotlight on their "Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday" mantra. The Ford Drag Team consisted of four Mustangs and two Fairlane Cobras: three cars on the West Coast team with drivers Dick Wood and Ed Terry, and three on the East Coast team with drivers Hubert Platt and Randy Payne. We are pleased to announce we will be hosting FIVE of the original cars, plus several additional related cars along with an absolutely incredible display of Ford Drag Team memorabilia and parts. If you saw the collection of Shelby-related parts that Bob Perkins and Richard Ellis brought in a few years ago, then imagine a comparable collection relating specifically to the Drag Team! And here's the real kicker; two of these cars are being shown for the very first time after extensive restorations, as Official MCACN Unveiling cars, Saturday morning!" Watch for Jerry Heasley's story and video of the Ford Drag Team at this year's show, with the unveilings.

Charlie Henry, who spent some time at Kar-Kraft and recently authored an incredible book about them, along with Co-worker Don Eichstaedt, were both in attendance to sign books and shake hands.
