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.; 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!

  • You've got to hand it to GM - near complete secrecy

    Has there been a major product announcement in the internet age that's made it to release day with no pics of the finished goods on the web? Apple can't do it. Any other car company? Jalopnik had C7 renderings months before the release. The C6 had body molds from a boat shop that gave that away, and the finished vehicle on car carriers in San Fransisco for the Boy's Dream commercial shoots before the launch.

    The only thing we've seen of the C8 is bad images of the back end and what GM wanted to release. Even 12 hours before the cover comes off, people are still debating what the finished machine will look like.

    Amazing job by Tadge, Harlan and the whole crew to keep it under wraps.

    Great observation Bucky! The entire Vette team is awesome.

      It's a shame more things can't make it to the finish line without someone trying to get their 15 minutes of fame. Many also don't realize the repercussions that come from it also.

        So far, excellent. Let’s hope we have nothing revealed by a yahoo in the next 13 hours.

          Current Ford GT maybe ...not sure but they kept the development a complete secret. But then again it’s not a mass production car at a Ford assembly plant either. So that’s the only car that comes to mind in the internet age we all live in. Actually the final assembly is in Canada 🇨🇦@ the multimatic plant. The same firm that builds race cars for a few manufacturers.

            Thanks Bucky The fact that the GM team has kept this so secretive all these months and years amazes me. To think all the people involved with this project and yet no leaks. 100 mule cars seen everywhere, some supposedly abandoned. in parking lots. Top Secret Government Agencies should solicit your Play Book. If you think of all the top publications and writers not to mention the thousands of Corvette fans that have been looking everywhere from every different direction for information and found little and most mis leading, GREAT JOB GM. For making today, July 19, 2019 Very Special to Me and all of us. I grew up with Corvettes, owned several, this is exciting as 50 years ago on this date that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the Moon. I remember that day well as a fifteen year Old and I will remember this day as a 65 year old. The GM team made this memory special to me and to others. If there had been leaks this day MAY not have been as memorable, THANK YOU

              There was a meeting held last Tuesday after the back end leak and someone was fired according to CGarnerSpeed252, fastforward to 3:50

                  That said, I think they need to celebrate with a special "Z-0-0" Heritage Edition with black and white splattered camo paint, black wheels with no caps and a cardboard spoiler.

                    Good, I'd can them too, with blistering speed. After seeing how much those union workers make, I bet that person is regretting that decision. Should have just reveled in the fact that they were able to see the C8 prior to the reveal!

                      Maybe the G does stand for Government, in GM lol

                      They really kept the kid in this thing, when I used to lurk on the C7, there was a guy who leaked a lot. Name started with a K I think.

                      Could not find anything like that with the C8
