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!

  • More Deception?

    From the new "ME Again N’Ring Testing As Asked By Corvette Nut" thread, I noticed something I have never seen before. There is a line in between the camo that is pretty obvious in this view, as circled in red below. Kinda sticks out like a sore thumb.

    I don't have the software tools or skills that others here have, and it's only visual speculation on my part. But I believe that the area circled in red is just more padding under the camo wrap, and that area won't be there in 18 days.

    Thank you Shepherd777. Will it be an “outie” or an “innie”? Inquiring minds want to know, e.g., badly.

      Thanks Sheppard777. I have a tendency to believe we haven't a clue what is to be revealed. Well maybe a little hint. I like surprises

        Me too. Please count me in the group that while it loves teasers like today, I do not want the final car to be revealed before 7.18.19

          I personally think its a plastic peice they made to cover the real air inlet, 3M VHB will hold anything in place. I have noticed on different mules the body lines that go across the entire side don't match up from mule to mule when you look at this specific peice.

            Thanks for point this out. It has been obvious for quite some time that the camo'd side scoops are very different than what we will see on the C8 when it is released. I have come to suspect that the car under the camo will look so difference than the camo'd cars seen in all the ITW videos that a lot of Corvette fans will be gobsmacked. The front fenders will clearly be different. However, I now suspect that even the interior will be different than the interior that we see in the ITW photos.

            07-18-2019 is setting up for a surprising number of surprises.

            Corvette Forever!

              It’s just a guess since the side intakes have had so much controversy and it could be more about GM testing different configurations for engine cooling, aerodynamics and service access ability.


              My thoughts and only because I owned an Audi R8 and about 6 other mid engine cars that I actually did my own maintenance on. Maybe it’s not all about deception and the lines are more about a panel to access vital components. When the car is in Camouflage it could be that those lines are more noticeable verses if the car was painted a solid color. The R8 depending on the engine had larger side intakes to get more air to the engine. I know many that had the V8 went with the larger V10 more pronounced side scoops it gave the car a more aggressive look. The R8 panels on each side are called side blades, they can be changed to many different colors or even carbon fiber on an Audi R8. They also serve a purpose for easy access to components of the car you can’t get to if the panel was not removable. If the panels were not removable parts of the engine would need to be removed to get to those components.

                    I didn't realize the R8's blades were removable for servicing FastToys. That's a clever design. I always liked them just from an appearance point of view, cool to know they were created that way for functional reasons too.

                      I will be surprised if part of the side scoop is on the door, i.e. the shark tooth.

                        I've felt that section (and the part on the door) has been padding for a long time now, I laugh at those that swear up and down the big scoop on the testers and in the renders is accurate. Especially the part on the door. And as Richrat stated, every mule car looks different in these areas.
