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!

  • Track or DD

    Do you plan on using your car for the track? (Drag or road) Do you plan on using it as a DD? Mine will be DD with a 2 LT interior not needing a Z51 package. Nothing wrong with those who want more HP just as in the C7 Zo6. The way I see it is this is going to be one fine looking car with whatever under the rear.

    We will be using ours, like all our Corvettes have been, as a special occasions car, especially for road trips. The first year, as it will be new to many in the Pacific Northwest, take it to shows, Corvette clubs and Cars-and-Coffee, then not much those events after year one — but instead its usual “carving curvy Corvette country corners” and on road trips. However, about a couple of months after getting it, I will go to Spring Mountain and driving their C8’s, learn how it works well on the track (learn its great ME capabilities).

      Hmm, I don't plan to track my C8, and I also don't plan to use it as a daily driver.

      Mine falls into the "pleasure vehicle" category, for use on warm sunny days on my favorite roads and for an occasional road trip.

      I've gotten about 38,000 miles of pleasure from my C7 so far, and I look forward to accumulating that many (s)miles on my C8.
      My C8:
      '20 Elkhart Lake Blue 2LT Coupe, Natural Interior, GT2 Two-Tone Seats, Performance Exhaust, Front Lift, Carbon Flash Wheels, Engine Appearance Package 2000 Status December 27, 2019; 3000 Status January 2, 2020; 3400 Status March 10, 2020;TPW March 16, 2020; Built June 4th, 2020 (COVID-19); Delivery July 1, 2020

      Current Vettes:
      '68 Lemans Blue 327/350 Convertible
      '91 Turquoise Convertible with Hardtop
      '14 Lime Rock Green 2LT Convertible, Black Top, Kalahari, 7-Speed, Performance Exhaust

        Mobius and John I should have included "pleasure vehicle". That is what I use mine for most of the time. John at least you get to carve mountain roads, all I carve is a roundabout now and then.

          Definitely a pleasure vehicle as my other Corvettes have been.

              Too bad the C7's DIC doesn't have a customizable welcome message any more, that would have been a great one!

              Back on topic, my C8 will see all three types of action -- autocross / lapping, daily driving, and pleasure trips. Occasionally I have to remember to take out the other car for a spin or it'll get jealous.

                Just like the M6 it'll be a DD. Fortunately I live fairly close to work so I still only put 5k miles on it in a year.

                  Fair weather, spirited street driving just like my current C7 Z06. I can't rule out some track but will definitely flog a C8 Z06 at Spring Mountain.

                        I enjoyed that. Might the C8 have customizable welcoming capability in addition to its initial animation?

                            Sun, rain , snow daily driver that ill try to autox and probably do a few track driver events...out at pocono ... I have nt done it in years but i want to again...just for a few laughs

                            i usually stay in beginner classes as its very safe but still you can get the car up near very illegal road speeds...

                            most of the time its daily driver duty and early morning weekend drives up and around the seven lakes and bear mountains...

                            ill do the z51 fe4 as I feel the heavy duty braking and cooling has a slight durability benefits as a daily driver...i could be wrong but its what I believe and that mrc shock thing has me intrigued,

                            other than that its torch red and black interior..,

                            i usually drive 12k a year give or take a few...

                            the .great ... part about corvettes is we get to personalize our cars the way we want...
