CORVETTE TODAY - Kevin Mackay Talks About The Cunningham Corvette & Bringing It Back To Life

In 1960, Briggs Cunningham took 3 Corvettes to France to race at Le Mans. After that race, the cars were brought back to the United States, put back to original and sold to consumers. The #3 car was recovered about put back to the way it was when it raced in 1960 at Le Mans and is owned by a private owner.; The car is owned by Bruce Meyers of the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. But what happened to the car? After a long legal battle, Kevin Mackay from Corvette Repair in Long Island, New York, has been putting this historic Corvette back to it's original 1960 livery for the past year (after it was purchased by Briggs Cunningham's family at auction). Kevin comes back on CORVETTE TODAY to tell the story of the Cunningham Corvette and to tell you when and where you can see this car...with its two siblings!

  • Volvo limiting top speed


    The Swedish automaker's mission is to have zero fatalities or serious injuries in its new vehicle models by the end of the decade

    VOLVO will introduce a maximum speed limit on its cars in efforts to reduce fatalities by 2020.

    The Swedish luxury car company will cap its car speeds at 112mph, and stated its aim that no one will be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo by the end of the decade.

    Really makes one wonder, how many Volvos have crashed at speeds over 110 mph? And if this is the real rationale, what makes the MFG think a 109 mph crash is survivable??

      Good questions. Maybe, not that it would not reduce say one death per year or two, but as we are sure you suspected), this is a “we are environment” statement.

        If they really want to cut down death rates it would have to be much lower than that. I guess it could be considered environmental but how often is one driven even close to this speed.
        Have thought they were pretty interesting vehicles lately but if they are going to start this **** I’ll pass.

          Guess the magic number they came up with is 180 kph (112 mph).

          Volvo's flagship XC90 SUV currently has a top speed of 131 mph (210 kph).

ID:	28350 So the top speed model is 131 and will be lowered to 112 ? I really dont think 19mph is really going to make much a difference in anything , except them saying they did it ...

              I thought it was a JOKE when I saw this on the AUTOWEEK site! What Volvo owner would drive their car full of kids to soccer camp at those kinds of speeds??? Has their market demographics change that much while I wasn't paying attention?

                GM has been limiting top speeds for years. I remember, I bought my mother a 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora. The standard model was electronically limited to 109 mph (I think), but the "Autobahn" package raised that to 130 mph. The Autobahn version had H speed rated tires, while the standard version had only S speed rated tires. BMW also limited speeds, but usually up at 155 mph or so. Many manufacturers limit top speeds often to the speed rating of the original equipment tires.

                I don't know how many Volvo drivers actually drive at 112 or more. If it were a lot, I could see somebody producing an OBD2 plug in device to defeat the speed limiter.
