L88 Corvettes, blogs, histories, articles, and photos for the all L88 fans out there!
The archives of Corvette Legends is filled with a tremendous amount of L88 information. New and updated articles will be published here on a regular basis as well as updates on future L88 Corvette displays which will be held at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago every November.
I am working with Kevin Mackay of Corvette Repair and we are planning to have the first of many record setting L88 Corvette displays at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago.
2017 will highlight the 50th anniversary of the 1967 L88 Corvette and we are planning on displaying most of the production run of the 20 that were built!
2018 will highlight the 50th anniversary of the 1968 L88 Corvette and again we are planning on displaying a significant number of the production run of 80 that were built.
2019 will highlight the 50th anniversary of the 1969 L88 Corvette and for our finale, we hope to display the largest gathering of L88 Corvettes ever!
If you own a 1967, 1968, or 1969 L88 Corvette, please contact me via the “Contact Dr. Pete” form at the right for more information about having your car in one of these record setting displays and featured in my magazine.
