1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 427 Big-block Four-Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1967 Chevrolet Corvette coupe. It's powered by the original, numbers-matching 427 Big-block, rated at 390 horsepower. All the power is sent through the durable Muncie four-speed manual trans. This car has been kept as original as possible. It was owned by the original owner all the way up until 2008. This is a really nice survivor. Thanks for taking a look!

Corvettes Fall Into Sinkhole at National Corvette Museum
(CNN) -- Eight Corvettes fell into a sinkhole that opened up beneath a section of the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky on Wednesday. The sinkhole, about 40 feet wide and about 25 to 30 feet deep, appeared before dawn under the skydome section of the museum, said Executive Director Wendell Strode. The yellow cone-shaped area houses Corvettes on loan from private owners and those "made famous by magazines and auto shows the world over," according to the museum's website. It is home to more than 30 unique Corvettes, including prototypes and a 1983 model -- the only one in existence. Of the eight cars that fell, six were donated to the museum by Corvette enthusiasts, and two are owned by the car's maker General Motors. Strode could not say how much the total value of the damaged cars is, but added it was "substantial." Strode said a structural engineer was at the scene assessing the situation. The museum in Bowling Green celebrates the American-made Chevrolet Corvette. It's located across the street from the GM Bowling Green Corvette assembly plant, where the cars are made.





Visiting the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit
While in Detroit for GoFurther, I had the opportunity to go to the Henry Ford Museum. I only got to walk around the first 25% of the whole museum. I saw the racing wing, the different camper vehicles, and the higher end cars of the 20's and 30's. It was then off to the Energy wing to see the generators that powered our towns over 100 years ago. A quick stop at the Wienermobile, then I saw some of the tractor equipment of the 1900's, including the prototype Ford tractor. http://bit.ly/MVCrS2 http://www.dayintechhistory.com twitter - http://www.twitter.com/dayintechhist Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/dayintechhistory Subscribe: http://j.mp/Youtubegeek Website: http://www.geekazine.com blip: http://tvazine.com/ --Social Marks-- Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/geekazine Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/ipad365 Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/geekazine Google: https://plus.google.com/+geekazine Google: http://plus.google.com/+ipad-365 LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/geekazine --Jeffrey Powers-- http://plus.google.com/+JeffreyPowers
