    Default 1960 #1 Cunningham Corvette Le Mans racer has been found!!!

    If you'd like to see this vehicle that's been missing for over 50 years we'll have it displayed in 'as found' condition during Corvettes at Carlisle August 24-26!

    Lance,
    I can't make it to Carlisle this year, but I was wondering if you could list the dates for next year's Corvette week in Carlisle?

    Thanks in advance, as I have to plan several months in advance.

    One of these days, Lance, I'm going to make the trip from the West Coast to your event.

    I heard you're having some kind of "reunion" for Carlisle Blue '12s. That true?

    Default #1 Cunningham Corvette find

    If there's anyone left on the planet, at least among Corvette aficionados, who has not heard the story before now of the #1 Cunningham Corvette from the Le Mans in France during June of
    1960....the full story is covered in 'THE QUEST', a feature-length documentary about those cars, Carlisle Events co-founder Chip Miller and Lance's extreme efforts to fulfill his late father's dream.
    More, including a trailer for the film, can be found at questdocumentary.com

    Great to see that number one has finally been located.

    We will be in Carlisle to see you and all the displays in three weeks.

    Can't wait.

    Well...my Wife and I blew our 2012 vacation money on a drive trip to Alaska so a visit to your show will have to wait at least until 2013. I'd love to come, though. We have one of three Carlisle Blue Z06es with 1LZ/Z07/B92 and the only one like that with RPO PBC. We're pretty partial to the color, obviously.


    Hope the 2012 Show goes well. Of late it seems there's been awful weather back there. My fingers are X'ed that the bad weather happens sooner rather than two weeks from now!

    From first hand experience, I can tell you that Wives look even better in Carlisle Blue Vettes.

    According to AutoWeek the Cunningham Corvette #1 has been pulled from Corvettes at Carlisle. See LINK.

    Why all the secrecy? This whole episode is generating bad vibes all around.

    I could be mistaken, but I believe the car was sold and pulled around 3:30 PM, however don't quote me on that.
