Yahoo! MCACN photos. I couldn't make the trip this year, so I'm ready for photos of what I'm missing.

WSW tires were a NC option on the 1968 442 instead of the standard Redlines. You just don't see them that often.

I received a request to show the Corvettes from the TV show ROUTE 66 which ran from 1960 - 1964. As you will learn from the next post you probably have a misconception as to the colors of the Corvettes on the show. I know I did.

The first Corvette was not a '59, but a Horizon Blue 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. Every year Chevrolet would give a brand new model for Tod and Buz (eventually Linc) to drive along Route 66. Despite rumors and "tales" of red and/or black Vettes being used on the show...according to interveiws with Martin Milner (Tod) and George Maharis (Buz) there never were any red or black ones. The producers purposely picked light blue and then eventually Fawn Beige colored Vettes because they filmed the best in black-n-white. So, the first car was a '60, then came a '61, a '62, and the last car used I believe was a Saddle Tan 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible--which finished the show out through 1964. After Maharis (Buz) left the show part way into '63 a new member joined the cast: Glenn Corbett as "Lincoln 'Linc' Case." However, audiences didn't "take" to him as much so ratings fell. At the end of the 1963-64 season the show was cancelled.

The '60 only appears in the very first episode, it's replaced by the '61 in episode 1.2 For that reason, I would personally rank the '60 to be a four star vehicle. Obviously the '61 and later Corvettes would be five stars, since the whole point of the show is two guys touring the country in their Corvette and their car gets a great deal of screen time.

Still waiting for someone to post photos of MCACN 2017. Usually Hot Rod Magazine does a huge slideshow - nothing yet.

Not sure this is a real 1962 Super Duty Catalina seeing as how it has both a radio and heater, neither of which are on real SD cars. No Highlights yet. If it's a replica - it's the best one I have ever seen.

What sets this car apart from the rest is its special-order paint option. GM paint code 80, Powder Blue, was only available on Oldsmobile and Buick. A "– -" is present in the paint designated location on the Cowl Tag. The original Powder Blue paint can be located behind the door panels.

Powder Blue was the name Buick used for paint code 80. Olds called it Azure Blue
