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. https://youtu.be/_g_9Eah8pS8; https://podcasts.adorilabs.com/corve...FbtXiohpLYxLCh 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!

  • Which C8 Wheel For You


    Which wheel are you currently considering when you order your next year’s ME?

    We are currently aware of only two OEM 2020 ME wheel choices:

    The McDonald’s “star wheel”:

    Or maybe the “split five spoke” wheel:

    There could be a third OEM optional wheel as there was in 2014, e.g., the torque directional wheel that came standard on the Premiere Edition. However, as of yet, we have not heard even rumors of a third wheel option for next year’s mid engine Corvette.

    So at this point, assuming we get just the two OEM wheels pictured, and further assuming both start out as a no-cost option, which one would you be ordering? Or are you thinking, “absolutely no thanks to both,” and so are your initial thoughts would be to consider a third OEM option if there is one if it were aesthetically and cost wise a viable option and/or are you quite likely to choose an aftermarket wheel?

    Not crazy about either of them. I have an aversion to "directional" wheels as well. We discussed this before and there was a really nice OEM wheel that you put up a picture of earlier. GS was it?

      Yes, it was the GS wheel. Here it is in its “nickel” version. I really like that wheel and would choose it if it were offered; so far however, we have not one rumor that it or anything like it going to be offered next year.

        If the GS wheel or anything like it is not available, we will be checking the option box for the “star wheel.” And, as we are trading our 2020 ME in on a 2021 Z06 equivalent version (whatever GM chooses to call it), we would definitely not going to spend the money on an aftermarket wheel or even a fairly expensive third OEM option.

          I'm also on record as a fan of neither wheel although I would take the split fork over the Micky Ds. My guess is that there will also be an accessory wheel we haven't seen yet offered as an option.

            I’m not a fan of either wheel. I’m hoping that by the time the Zora or what ever they call it comes out, a better choice will be available from the factory.

              I have to see the vehicle and the wheel choices. I have difficulty choosing before seeing the final prodict with the wheels on them.

                  Split 5 Spoke - Even if it were Chrome or Black Chrome would be much easier to clean.
                  But I Really Love These.

                    If there is a third OEM option that is more than around $2K, I will have to think about it long and hard. If it is drop dead gorgeous, I will however seriously consider it. If there is no such OEM option or it is not what I am wanting, I am right now leaning toward the star wheel. However, JBsC6 makes an extremely valid point, so no decision yet made for me as to my ME wheels.
                    Enjoying my Shadow gray C8. What a car it is.

                      I agree with the majority not liking either choice. I would opt for what ever is “standard” and replace with aftermarket, forged and made in the U.S.A. Wheels of OEM sizes or slightly wider. My first “mod”.

                        I guess I am in the minority since I like the MickyD wheel as long as it has a machined face ...

                          But not alone...I too will chose the Mickey D star wheel over the split five spoke. But will GM give us a third option at a comparable $0-$2,000 per set price that GM usually offers for its two primary wheels? As my 2020 ME will be a one year car (traded in on the second year high perf version), I am not going to spend a bunch on a expensive third option.

                            I have the machined face version on my '13 427 roadster and they get constant praise. Even if someone doesn't care for the car, they almost always say they "love the wheels".
                            '64 Silver Grey Coupe (custom paint)- still our favorite
                            '13 White/Blue Diamond 427 60th roadster - favorite late model
                            Several others including two C7's

                              Of what we have so far seen on a C8 mule, I am leaning toward the star, Mickey D’s wheel — but could easily change when seeing the car in person.
