Always happy to keep you informed, we were the 1st ones to mention a new chrome wheel was coming due it’s debut on the 2008 INDY 500 Pace car replica and now you can buy that very wheel as a 2008 option (Q9V) for $1850.
As I was out and about last year and various Corvette events, met a cool guy and his dad at Road America Steve R. from Chicago also a NUT when it comes to Corvettes. We were talking about memorabilia and he mentions the 1953 stamp and how he has the picture signed by the guy that did the drawing. I said, I loved it and all I had was the mouse pad.
What I didn’t know was…..
This car displays pure class and hertiatge at the same time. Last year we were scrambling for details on the 1st ever signature edition Corvette, the Ron Fellows Z06. That Ron Fellows car still being sought after…This year we are welcomed with another special edition Corvette, in a color that is not a standard Z06 color. The new 2008 Crystal Red Z06 Corvette is a special edition to salute the 427 era and it is signed by a man that retires from the plant manager position at Bowling Green assembly , Mr. Wil Cooksey.
Cleveland has the oldest Corvette club in the country and I thankful Tim Obert & Ankur Patel sent a few pictures from the debut at the Cleveland Auto Show.
IF YOU ARE ATTENDING, PLEASE EMAIL ME YOUR PICTURES, LOOKING FOR SOME LARGER RES VERSIONS & WE’LL SHARE THEM WITH EVERYONE ON YOUR BEHALF, THANK-YOU RICK”CORVETTE”CONTI.

You folks know how much I love auto shows and it is driving me nuts that I am unable to make the Cleveland Auto Show this year, especially because the 427 Limited Edition Crystal Red Z06 makes its first public appearance. My friends and buddies at Corvette Cleveland should be hooking us up…..
If you are on the fence of ordering a 2008 Corvette..NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME, no matter what state you are in, we can help.
For many,many years I have had the pleasure of making a presence at the Cleveland Auto Show. Your emails and calls asking me if I am attending again this year mean so much, thank-you, but Due to the zoning laws with GM, I cannot do a booth as I have in years past. I always looked forward to just seeing your faces, hearing how things are going and always happy to answer your questions on this ever changing market that has become a way of life.
Watching your faces light up, hearing your voices on the phone, reading your comments on the web…all this and more make being a part of Corvette at the retail level; a dream job for a dream car.
SPECIAL WELCOME TO OUR WTMJ LISTENERS!
That is why I enjoy sharing info and participating at many Corvette events throughout the year. Looking forward to meeting you this year. Here is something that is available for you to participate in at the Corvettes at Carlisle show this August….
