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

  • Carscoops pictorial comparison of the c8 vs the beautiful c7 is telling


    im dialing up the carscoops pictorial and that c8 z51 just as its shown in torch red is my huckleberry

    torch red exterior, black interior z51 along with fe4 mrc shocks and those black wheels with the thin polished lip is it.

    just thought Id share

    The C8 is more agressive, more "brutal." The C7 is more elegant, especially the back end. I like them both.

            I like them both. It is pretty obvious they are both Corvettes. The C8 is a bit more busy but that may be the nature of the beast. The C7 Stingray is still the more elegant looking of the two, but I wouldn't call the C8 "brutal". Its just different. In a dark color with body-colored trim the C8 looks pretty good - better than the Ferrari 488 and all the McLaren's, (although the new McLaren GT is a looker). It is definitely better looking than the LaCucaracha Lambo's or the Ford GT. It makes the new Porsche 992 look like a relic of the 1960's.

            The one ME car I can say it does not quite match is the Ferrari 458 Italia, but Ferrari hasn't figured out how to make another car as good looking as that one either. Lamborghini has never matched the Miuri, since it went on the Countach bender and never looked back.

            Styling something elegant is HARD. My prediction is that the C7 will become more appreciated as time goes by - it is a classic.

              I had my C7 GS out today running errands. I stopped for a soft drink and parked across the street from the store. As I was returning to the car I had a straight on side view. I had to pause and just admire for a moment. It’s truly a fantastic looking Corvette. The sun was gleaming off every surface enhancing the Torch Red surfaces. I love this car! Should have taken a pic.

              This pic is from another day. Same feeling tho.

                I love my 17 GS, but, just like the C7 made the C6 look “dated”......I think the C8 does that more so. Part of that for me is that I much prefer the mid engine body “outline”. Saw that early on with that gif that morphed the C7 into the C8.
                I’m goin’ driving 👍


                • #9
                  ^^^ I sort of disagree. I think the C7 is still every bit as fresh as it was 5 years ago. Still don't see very many and they still turn heads. Now the C8 to me is a new model, hard to compare the two.. they are like siblings, not twins.

                    The C7 is gorgeous! At the same time the Chazcron rendering at Kerbeck, with a blue C8 in front of a row of C7’s, which one looks very different from the rest. Click image for larger version

                      Change gets a lot of people freaked out. I like a lot of different cars. It would be great if we could have a Corvette level FE and ME from chevy, but that is not the case. I love the ME exotics and am blown away by the styling and the performance talk of the C8. I love the new Corvette. I think it looks better than a Huracan. I just hope it sounds and drives as good as one.

                        I wasnt even talking about the written words of the article.

                        i was just enjoying the photos or sketches of the red c8

                        please accept my apologies if I in any way was suggesting the c7 was as stunning an example of a front mid engine corvette...

                        that was never my intent..l

                        in fact I am a firm believer that each generation of corvette in its time was quite attractive and for that alone should be admired...

                        the c7 s time is current as is its styling.

                        personally I belueve as I read the carscoops article that even the lighting of the c7 photos/ sketches did the design an injustice and were chosen to bolster the negative premise....

                        fake news! (Kidding but the photos chosen by carscoops are not the most flattering angles or photos I ve seen of c7 s....

                          Ok by me JB. I’m really blown away by the C8. And I know as with all things change is inevitable.

                          My initial urge has tempered somewhat in the last day or so.

                          I may end up passing on this C8 for now but only because I’d kick myself if a wide body came out in 2021.

                          Hoping for a GS or “GT” in the very near future with a wide body look.

                          Then again....... who’s to say what I’d do standing next to the right Z51 right now!

                              Is this weight comparison apples and apples? Are both dry weight or otherwise?
