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

  • 6 ME Convoy But In Different Location AND Many Minutes Underway Footage This Time

    Humungous thanks to George Kenner, National Realter of the Year, who as he shares, was near his Yuma, AZ home, just finished drive in lunch and found gold! He was heading north on Rte. 95, just north of I-8 (not far from the Chevy’s Yuma, AZ Proving/Testing Grounds)/ Notice that this convoy is composed of, we think, the same six MEs that we earlier say in the linked one, but in this one we clearly also see GM Vice President Mark Reuss. Guessing that Tadge, Harlan and Alex MacDonald were also along as they were in the one we saw ten days ago.

    As George noted, and normally the verbal descriptions are terrible, but he is truly very enjoyable/fun to listen to (learned at one point he sold Corvettes in his earlier life), so while he tells you in it that he has reproduced all the video as a continuous stream at the end (starting at 6:09), his commentary about the car’s lower height than a C7, the steering wheel and more, I recommend you listen to the whole thing.

    Hello Mark Reuss!

    So again thanks so much George for giving us mid engine Corvette crazies a wonderfully fun, publicly shared on YouTube video.




    As to the copyright issue, I called the video’s creator George Kenner this morning, had a wonderful conversation with him, and received his permission to use it in a “non-selling” capacity, e.g., okay to post it here.
    Thank you George Kenner!

    Good thing Reuss wasn't driving (sorry, I couldn't help it).

    At least one convertible, the Reuss car.

    edit. Sorry it's not the Reuss car. Car #6 is a convertible. This one

      If anyone missed the earlier part of this Caravan, that showed us that Tadge, Harlan and Alex MacDonald were also on this “Corvette Caravan Convoy”:

            A very nice video and with nice narration.

            As always, too bad it couldn't be a bit longer!

            His closing words had a lot of wisdom... "Go out and buy one of these cars - it's good for the economy!"

            Sage advice, and good enough for me.

            Memories are still fresh regarding the last time Reuss got behind the wheel of 500+HP...

                I had suspected this before but I couldn't be sure, but I have a feeling the cars we've seen without the black "tarp" camouflage on have still had a lot of padding on the front splitter and rear spoiler. In this screenshot it looks like the car has the spoiler underneath the tarp, but it doesn't look nearly as bulky as the cars that ran around the Nurburgring:

                Separately, on the somewhat recent spy shots there looks to be significant padding on the spoiler as well as the front splitter, evident by the mesh coming underneath what must be additional padding:

                You can even see what appears to be part of the un-camouflaged car underneath the mesh in the grill area based on the leaked paint shop pictures. I for one am very excited for this car!

                          I am struck, just re-watched the video a third time, about George’s comment that compared to the C7, and as is obvious he was in the same car filming passing both the C8’s and the C7, that the ME was between 1” and 1 1/2” lower.

                          Wow, will it ever look sleek, especially compounded by its 2 to 3” wider width!

                            That's only about the second or third pic we have seen of the buttresses on the convertible. Looks slimmer in this pic than the earlier one.

                            Interesting that the C8 team have gone to much greater lengths to camouflage the rear of the convertible. I'm going to take the positive view and say that's because it's so astoundingly great.

                              Funny/good comment. That is such a special buttress picture because George was literally in the perfect place, as was the sun, to get it.

                              BTW, for those who are thinking this was a deliberate GM leak, not so. I spent quite a time (quite fun) talking with George today and he was recanting why he was late to getting lunch (2;00 PM), why he ate at that place for the first time months, etc.

                              Bottom line = great but dumb luck for us all.
