Corvette National Day Of RecognitionIn honor of GM's 100th anniversary, Mid America Motorworks (the creator of "Drive Your Corvette to Work Day") has petitioned Congress to declare June 30 a National Day of Recognition for Corvette. Arguably the greatest automobile to come off the assembly line, the Corvette has been unmatched for over 50 years in style, speed, and desirability.
The petition is being presented by Congressman John Shimkus (R-IL) to honor the day the very first Corvette rolled off the assembly line in 1953. Every Corvette owner and admirer is encouraged to petition his or her congressional representative in support of this resolution. For more information, visit the Mid America Motorworks Web site at www.mamotorworks.com/corvette or call 800/500-1500.

Conceptually FlawlessStreet Visions Concept Hot Rods and Street Machines of Salisbury, North Carolina, has started construction of its '73 Z28 Camaro. This is just one of the many insane concepts this shop is producing, and it has decided to make this one a reality. The Camaro screams innovation at every turn with contributions from all eras of GM production cars, including a '63 Vette rear window, '69 Firebird taillights, '67 Vette bumper, and '67 Camaro quarters, just to name a few. Under the hood will be a 502ci big-block crate motor with a Tri-power carb setup from Barry Grant. It is set to be unveiled at the SEMA Trade Show in Las Vegas later this year.
ZL-1 For Sale!Not exactly, but the original Fred Gibb Chevrolet building is being sold by the current owners. The place where many a '60s supercar dream began, the home of the wildest car to ever leave a General Motors factory, can be yours. Fred Gibb was instrumental in the creation of the ZL-1 Camaro. He and Dick Harrell tore up the AHRA circuit in ZL-1 Camaro No. 1 and ultimately took delivery of 50 of these hot rods, which are worth six figures today. For any information regarding the present sale of the building, contact Terry Reid at 239/850-8531.
