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!

  • So Many ME Questions Yet To Be Answered

    How many major ME unanswered questions we still have!

    Where does one start? So in no particular order, here are some of the major missing ones, i.e., candidly we are missing so much more than we are knowing.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	4BE88A2E-D15B-4233-999F-68E29C714CB4.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	228.6 KB ID:	43748

    We do NOT know all of the following:

    Will 7.18.19 Include A HT Convertible?

    MSRP Price?

    Car’s Physical Aspects?
    • What is the actual shape of the scoop?
    • What does it front and rear fascias, hood and the Z-51 spoiler really look like?
    • What is its motor’s power levels, including what are the major differences from the LT1?
    • What is its weight?
    • What is its F/R weight distribution?
    • What is its cargo area total size, and how is it configured?
    • What does the inside of cabin look like — including the passenger area?
    • Where does the coupe’s roof store?
    • How does the HT convertible work?
    Car’s Performance Specs?

    Ordering & Production Schedules?
    • When do initial orders go in?
    • When does initial customer production start?
    • Is it a staggered production, e.g., coupe first then HT second, or both at the same time?
    Other Possible, Thought Very, VERY Remote First Year Possibilities:
    • Could there be a second motor option? If so, a V6? TT? Have a FPC?
    • Could there be a manual transmission?
    • Could there be a Z06?
    • Could there be AWD?

    Is it not amazing that we know so little despite our fantastic resources we have had to date, e.g, 400+ spy pictures, 300+ renderings, 10 CAD drawings, our collective massive brains and reasoning powers, and tens of “supposed leaks”!

    Just 14 more days and all or almost of these questions will be answered!

          Given the camo versions driving around, I think you, and others like you (which includes me), will get a HTC...eventually!

            My question, which hopefully some of you folks with more experience in Vette introductions can answer:
            • When will an online "Build Your Own" configurator appear?
            I think it was mentioned that a booth will be at the NCM event to do this. Would GM release it at that time for anyone to use online, or does it only appear when dealers are ready to enter orders into the system? I don't care if it has prices (although that would be great) but just what options are available etc.

              Post #2 is my favorite pix too. After having owned 2 AW C7 converts, I'm ready again for a TR. Another question I have is: Exact length and width (with mirrors extended) and height of HTC at highest point during operation. (Reason: Only have a one car garage in condo and rafters precluded opening/closing of our C6. Our C7 is ok. Hopefully C8 will be ok too)

                I’d say obviously it’ll be better because car is lower & more tightly packaged

                  NO SOFT TOP CONV. They were a disaster in the 430 Ferrari Spyders never fitted well and looked horrible and cheap. I sure hope for a HT Conv. The tops on the coupes will probably store vertically behind the seats in a padded compartment. The HT Conv will go up and down like the Ferraris, probably the main reason GM leased a 488 Ferrari while designing this car was to fully understand the top mechanisms, engine placement etc. I feel that they may get a perfect 50/50 Front / Rear Ratio, That is what they were striving for. As far as engines a Base LT1 with a possible upgrade to a LT2 with 500 to 530 hp. Upgraded motors to follow as in C7 production. I think that the front fascia is pretty much as we know it from the great renderings of out talented member FVS Chazcron and Vetterocious to name most but the side scoops and rear fascia that is where the real surprises will come. A standard trans MAY very well follow with the patents applied for with electric clutch assist as opposed to Hydraulics. The FRUNK is going to be limited and there will be complaints from current coupe owners ( There will be a lot of complaints from the haters and critics ). ALL IMO But the biggest question is pricing. hopefully Base will be right under $65,000. I it is any higher GM will have a problem taking into consideration where they need to be to sell a whole lot of base cars in the first year and to attract the younger generation into this car ALL IMO

                    That giggling you hear over in the corner is the GM team congratulating themselves on how successful their stealth and marketing program is working. We know so little, yet our anticipation is through the roof. Doesn’t get any better for them until they knock our socks off on 7-18 with an awesome reveal.

                          John one thing I would add to your list is What safety enhancements have they designed in to the new platform. Chevy has admitted they have intentionally crashed some of the mules. Curious to hear those results. Thanks

                            That will be very useful and informative. We have already seen on the leaked specs, several of those new-to-Corvette safety upgrades that’s will be available on the ME, e.g., blind spot protection, and the combined halo bar/upper coupe rear window cameras tied to the video rear view mirror program (e.g., like Cadillac’s Panaray system but much superior).

                            Approximately 30 mules have been part of its destruction testing, safety development process.

                              Any chance John you can find out how much off the ground the front of the c8 is standard and with the front end lift system?
                              lol


                              the mclaren GT is 110 mm’s off the ground standard and 130 mm’s off the ground with the lift system in its highest position.

                              i literally spent 1200 dollars replacing the aluminum tack welded lower support with a new bolt on piece on my corvette going over a 10 mph speed table.

                              thanks in advance...ugh!
