Bloomington Gold Corvette Auction

Mecum's Bloomington Gold Corvette Auction will be this weekend (June 26-27) in St. Charles, IL.

The main attraction will be Harley Earl's personal 1963 Stingray that was given to him as a gift from GM in 1963.

Aside from the fact that this Stingray was once owned by GM designer Harley Earl, it has also lived a rather interesting life after it left Mr. Earl's ownership in 1965.

This will be definitely be an auction to follow if you're a Corvette enthusiast. The event will be broadcast live on Discovery HD Theater if you can't attend the auction in person.
