Dr. Pete Gimenez
I started buying, restoring, and selling Corvettes in the 1970s, and since then, the hobby has grown to unexpected levels. I attended my first NCRS show back in 1976, I entered one of my Corvettes into a show back in the summer of 1980, I attended my first Bloomington Gold Corvette show in 1981, and I attended my first Corvette auction in 1988. Over the years, I’ve acquired more Corvette and High Performance Chevrolet knowledge than I know what to do with it. So, I ended up writing a Corvette book back in 2008. It was centered around the original “Ultimate” Corvette with the L88 option package. Since then, I’ve been more active than I expected with Corvette shows and collector car auctions.
In 2014, I helped the owner of the “Rebel” Corvette sell his car at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event as the number two seller of the auction. This car sold for 2.86 million dollars, which was then a record price for a former racing Corvette.
That same month, I helped another owner sell his production 1968 Corvette at Mecum Kissimmee auction, and it was ironically, the number two seller again.
The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals MCACN is my main show these days, as I’ve had my own display there for the past several years. You can always find some L88 Corvettes and some other low production or low mileage car in my display.
I’m currently updating this site along with several others, so please bookmark this page and visit again.
