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!

  • Getting ME Reveal Antsy?

    Kerbeck announced yesterday that it was talking deposits on the next generation Corvette. In that announcement there was typo that many have pounced upon, and that was when the writer, the lead Corvette person there, Dave Salvatore (a true gentlemen) used the word “may,” he inadvertently wrote it with a capital “M”, so it became “May.” That was a typo, yet many consequently think the reveal is imminent. — that Dave was using some sort of subliminal code. Even GM Authority who wrote a while back that they had a good source and that the reveal was this summer as a stand alone event,” jumped on Dave Salvatore’s inadvertent wrongly typed single letter, and they today changed course and wrote the ME’s reveal could be in May.

    Originally posted by gmauthority
    Originally, it was thought the 2019 North American International Auto Show would play host to the mid-engine C8 Corvette’s debut. However, GM Authority learned the car has been plagued with electrical issues that delayed the car roughly six months. Now, we expect to see the car debut at a standalone event this summer, maybe as early as May.
    Sorry gmauthority, May is the middle of spring, with a full 20 days after May being over also being in Spring (before summer starts).

    Now for those who are seizing on the supposed SOP for the 2020 ME being in December, and therefore the reveal must be really soon, please consider this:

    ​​​​VW has officially announced that the production of the next generation GOLF is starting in June, yet they bypassed the biggest car show in the world, one going on right now, Geneva, to announce its reveal.

    While it is less than three months before GOLF customer production officially starts, VW has yet to announce its reveal date or its location. GOLF is one of VW’s superstars vehicles; they are spending $2,000,000,000 on improvements/upgrades to it, yet still no reveal date.

    Corvette C8 lovers, there is nothing magical about a one finger typo slip. Please do not get your hopes up that the reveal is next month at the New York Auto Show, nor that it is the following month either.

    PATIENCE is necessary.

        Sorry about that; of course not my purpose, but the opposite.

        We have seen so many hopes risen, then as that supposed reveal event passed, andthat event did not have the ME’s reveal, people emotionally down because the reveal did not happen when they though it would or should have. We all remember Pebble Beach, Laguna Seca, SEMA, LA Auto Show, NAIAS, Chicago Auto Show and now Geneva. The 2020 ME Corvette will be revealed and IMO start production this year. But maybe not as soon as some think.

        The reveal will happen, and the second it happens, there will be excitement and happiness.

        If VW has not even announced their huge GOLF less than three months before its production has been officially announced by them, I hope that helps us understand this is not a “GM thing” of reveals often lately being closer to production than they used to be.

        The upside of that, is that there is consequently less waiting between the reveal and the customer cars starting production. That is a very good thing for many, especially for those who are ordering theirs as soon as possible.

          Back in 2003, the CEO of a big Software company (for developers), wrote a "casual" email to his customers (developers) about his out-loud thinking of a new feature and wanted to get feedback.

          He started his email with the phrase "Hey Gays"...

          That email went out to over 20,000 developers at midnight. By 5:00 AM the phone started ringing about his email
          (He had then blamed his email program with auto spell correct, as he meant "Guys")
          It "May" be true, it was the auto spell correct feature.

                  Well, if history on previous generation's testing times leading up to release are the same, May does fit the time-line, as we're seeing more of them on the roads now = final phase before launch!

                    Personally, the reveal date doesn't matter that much to me, as I expect I'll be driving my C7 for several more years yet.

                    Unless, that is, one of the wealthy forum members would like to adopt me.

                        Superb! Since it is snowing again today, I think I shall just go out to the garage and visually lust after my C7.

                          After listening to Autoline After Hours last night, I thought it was interesting to hear Don Sherman's thoughts on the C8. He expects both ME and FE configurations to continue to accommodate both buyers. He also expects the C8 to be revealed in August at the 25th anniversary of the Museum. As you well know, that is a week later than the Monterey Classic Car week. In the past, I have extolled the virtues of revealing the ZORA at the Quail Event, Laguna Seca, and the Concour on Sunday. Doing a reveal at both Museum and Pebble Beach would be awesome.

                            I like the idea of a reveal actually before the end of August, for the reasons that if the initial reveal were instead earlier in the summer (say mid-summer at the rumored GM standalone event), GM could then GM could have the ME’s at Pebble Beach, and at Corvettes at Carlisle, and at the NCM’s 25th Anniversary — as the 8,500 National Corvette Caravaners end their adventure, pull up to the Museum for that celebratory weekend.

                              My preference is for a reveal as soon as possible. So in answer to the title question - yes.

                              I listened again to Don Sherman's comment about "interspersing" C7 and C8 production on the same line. I'd like to see this, and Sherman seems to have been a good source of info, but this came right after the comment that only one part is shared.

                              Now I've never worked in an auto plant, but I have toured both GM's and Ford's facilities in Ontario, and while producing different models in each, they were similar vehicles that shared a lot of parts. I just have a problem imagining how the line will function with double the number of parts in play.
