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! If you love the history of Corvette and its racing past, DO NOT MISS this episode of CORVETTE TODAY. www.CorvetteToday.com

  • FVS’ Exciting C8 New Render

    So a C7 and a Ferrari 488 had a baby.... Really nice stance to this latest version. Thank you so very much FVS!

    [Quote=FVS]The black scoop cover could be different but I think something needs to be there in some way. So this solution has the general shape of the camo car "fake" panel (extended a bit) and the C8R V scoop shape. I also think the rear spoiler is starting to look more reasonable like this...not active aero cool but not bad.

    Starting take shape. And just think that the real car will be 10 times better[/Quote]

    Thank you FVS. It does have a really nice stance. I remember, all the way back to C7pimp posting back about four months ago, his stating that the stance of the C8 was really nice.

    Well done.
    Enjoying my Shadow gray C8. What a car it is.

      sorry guys...the door is too "creasy' for the lack of a better word, for me..maybe at least remove the top crease pm the door....or have t he top crease be an extension of the rear top crease on rear quarterpanel...too busy t he way it is...

              With all the “renders” and information, spy shots, cad images in the past couple years, FVS has managed to almost 100% Nail the production cars features and appearance. I think GM is either very impressed with this or getting frustrated and changing things up on the car so when debut day comes it won’t be what we thought. Otherwise FVS amazing work as always.

                One wonders if our getting closer and closer will in any way effect GM’s decision on when to reveal the car.

                    Agree completely. I like FVS' earlier renders better. We'll find out the truth eventually.

                        First, the render is beautiful. Second, I have a question if anyone has first-hand experience that applies. The background is this: We have seen the shape and form of the camo-cars that are being tested in the USA and in Germany and have some ideas about what features are being tested. The question is this: Could the actual C8 mid-engine car have a very different shape and form than the camo-cars? How different could the actual C8 mid-engine car be from the camo-cars without invalidating the testing that we have seen?

                        Are we in for a small surprise or a really giant surprise? Will the C8 be basically like the camo-cars with different details? Or will it be in some way basically different with different details? Does the testing that we have seen answer the question. Does anybody out there have first-hand experience in this area of car testing and, if so, what do you think?

                          To quote FVS, “And just think the real car will be 10 times better!”

                          While I am a new member here, been lurking and following FVS’ excellent workmanship for a long time. He is super skilled, and yet his statement confirms that what we will see when the C8 is revealed, is far better. Why so, because there is still a lot of camo underneath the camo vinyl. While we think the camo vinyl is literally just a single layer wrap like we might wrap our car in SunTek Ultra or XPEL, there is still some padding under it in different parts of the car. I think there is a good amount of disguising in the rear quarters, the rear end, and the front of the car. Could be some on the hood too. I think the revealed car will be a lot better looking, a lot more exotic than even FVS’ great renderings. Just my opinion.

                          Thanks for having me here. I hope I can contribute. I know I will learn a lot.

                              Thanks FVS, you're very talented. I suspect you're getting very close, and I agree that the real car will almost certainly look even more striking and beautiful. As MidEngine said above, even relatively thin layers of padding in strategic areas under the camo can dramatically change the look without compromising what they're trying to accomplish in street and track testing.

                              Yes, the aero will be slightly different on the actual car, but all that has already been mostly worked out in wind-tunnel testing and computational fluid dynamics analyses. The street testing stuff is more about component reliability, drivetrain cooling, etc. Aircraft manufacturers essentially know how a new aircraft design is going to perform before they ever actually attempt the first test flight.
