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!

  • Max $ For Your ME Buy

    What would be your limit on your 2020 ME purchase?

    We all have a limit on what we would spend on the ME. Beyond that limit, there are great other cars, great lightly-used ones, and other things we could enjoy.

    So not counting taxes, and assuming when it is revealed it is breathtaking, and it the standard equipment/options you are “needing,”w hat would be your max you would spend on a 2020 Corvette ME (beyond that amount tapping out entirely or buying something else)?

    Value obviously is important, Engine, Trans, Comfort, Tech, Suspension, Lighting, Appearance-(opinions vary), When GM releases ANY information then we may have a better idea of what we will be willing to spend. Everything at this point is pure speculation on the unknown. However if Entry price is in the 65 K realm, then it would depend on package prices and upgrades as to how far I may go. Quality, Packages, Custom Accessories all in 100 K may be worth it.

      We have been actively saving for three years now, and we are in at $110K — including the roughly $7.5k paint protection/correction mods in our today, separate ME mod thread.

        $120,000 fully optioned my way. No more, maybe less , what I would want is carbon ceramic brakes, 500 hp LS drysump engine, dct, mag dampers, equipped close to current C7 Grand Sport, maybe comp seats, need to sit in one first. Not sure about a vert top maybe the hardtop convertible, but that is not important to me.

          I'm prepared to spend more than people are spending on a loaded C7ZR1. But I feel that for that kind of money the quality of the overall product must be stellar considering the competition at that price level.

            As I said previously, I'm waiting for the rumored 1000hp AWD version. I have set aside $225,000.00 for it including taxes. If it is more than that, I'll probably have a new Mclaren 720. My health is not the greatest, so I set the money aside, so if I live long enough for it to come out I pay cash. If I die first, there may be a different car my wife would rather have. We were at the museum last week. I asked the fellow there tending the museum cars, if he new where I left my new C8. He said, they won't even let him in there to take the people in for their engine build experience. He said they now have an alternative side entrance, so no one gets a peek. I'll have to wait and see just like everyone else I guess.

                  If it's really fabulous (totally subjective) I would probably go to 125K or so, for my last Corvette. If I don't love it, in every way, probably buy one of the many excellent, practical vehicles at 50 - 60K.

                    Well thought out George. Get ready to go towards 125K, for more postive news ahead. However, for the first year model, you will have some left over with that budget.

                      Hhmm. Tough to answer as we don't yet know what we'll have. But, based on educated guesses of what is in the pipeline it could look like this:

                      Base Model: 500+ hp. DCT. Great looks. Well sorted. This car could perform up to the level of an M7 C7 Z06. And be priced accordingly - 70-95k, a few thou more for HT vert.

                      Mid-Level: 650-750 hp. DCT. Some body differences, brakes, wheels, tires, etc. Likely exceed current ZR1's performance. 115-135k. Few thou more for HT

                      Hybrid/top model. 650-700hp plus 300+ electric front drive (the 1,000 hp big dog). Active aero, significant body diff. Will be hunting, and eating, supercars. Up to 200k.


                      I'll go for the door number 2, as I'm convinced the C9, if it even comes to be, will be electric hybrid if not full electric. Thus the mid-level ME may be the highest hp/performance, last "all engine" brand new Corvette one will be able to get.

                        Unfortunately for me, the #1 most important feature is a manual transmission. Since it appears that the C8 will be auto only, my max price is significantly lower that it would be if a M7 or similar trans was available. I'm really bummed about this - I'll just have to wait and see if the reveal sneaks in an M7 or if my excitement about the car overcomes that negative. Honestly, its close to a deal killer for me.

                          I hear ya. My current vettes are manuals. The CAD drawings that leaked certainly showed a DCT. There haven't been any leaks regarding a manual trans, but that certainly isn't by itself dispositive there won't be one.

                          I don't know whether they will or won't have one. I could see them go either way. At least a well-sorted DCT is a huge step up from current/previous autos in the Corvette.

                            I understand, as my performance cars have always been manual, although I'm not in love with the manual in my '15 C7. I much prefer the trany in my 427 C6 roadster. That being said, I'm certainly ready to consider a new automatic Corvette if it is truly smooth and functions beautifully. It clearly is the future, and probably suits the new ME just fine. Time will tell.

                              I dont expect to pay anywhere near what you guys are suggesting. Of course having the money and deciding what ill pend on any car are two different things.

                              here is what i want. A torch red dct mid engine z51 model and i expect that ti be an amazing value...

                              how much.? Id say five grand more than the msrp c7 z51 version maybe the c7 grand sport with the A8 compared to the dct..

                              500 hp ? I dont expect to pay much more than five grand than either of the c7 models mentioned above...

                              with 550 hp i might sport a c7 z06 price point.

                              i believe many of you guys speaking of such elevated pricepoints would be seeing c8 z06 twin turbo motors when you approach a starting price of a hundred grand.

                              i believe todays c7 z06 lists at 82 and goes up of course with various options.

                              we should see the vehicle in january and we will all know better what we should pay.

                              i believe towards the end of april we will hear what pricing is.
