Of course nobody buys and drives a Corvette to just fit in, to just flow with traffic. Corvettes are for sticking out like a peacock among poultry, for saying “Hey, everybody! Look this way!” so and few Corvettes say that better than a Greenwood-bodied example like this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette for sale on While neither interior nor engine has been left stock, they sorta pale in comparison to the flared, ducted, and be-winged exterior. From the seller's description: With The Rare Greenwood Full GT Turbo Body coupe was built to showcase even more radical aerodynamics. The Greenwoods chose a blow-through ...

I remember moving to Paris and not really knowing where to start. In fact, I probably took a lot longer than I should have to rev my engines because I just didn't have a place to go and plan world domination where the environment inspired me, the wi-fi was reliable, the chairs were comfy and the kitchen was accessible for all-day grazing.Traditional co-working spaces are alright I suppose, but I've never seen one in this city that really speaks to my intrinsic need for a good quiet nook to curl up in like a cat with my laptop, flashing my ...

Growing up as a youngster in the late 1940s and early 1950s, the Friday after Thanksgiving marked the start of the “official” Christmas holiday shopping season. Department stores and local merchants unveiled their Christmas window displays. Santa's Toyland opened to the delight of children of all ages. It was the first opportunity to meet and talk with the white-bearded gentleman described as “chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf.” An example of a Christmas putz.

By Hunter Oatman-StanfordLife in 2015 isn't quite what we were promised in the last century's science-fiction fantasies: We don't live on the moon, commute to work in autonomous flying cars, or get homework help from friendly robot maids. And yet, our predictions for food service—fully cooked meals delivered instantly at the push of a button—became a reality more than 50 years before “The Jetsons” ever aired. Starting in the 1890s, people flocked to a new type of restaurant whose walls were lined with futuristic devices serving everything from deviled crab on toast to apple pie. It was called the “automat.” “The ...

Van Briggle Mountain Crag Brown
Below is a guest post from noted Van Briggle author and collector Kathy Honea Described in Van Briggle early literature as a glaze containing the browns and greens found in a mountain crag, this glaze consists of a rich honey-brown with over spray of a medium-bright green. Although certainly numerous shades of brown and green glazes were produced within the first decade of Van Briggle pottery production, this particular combination of these specific colors was prevalent in the 1920s until the mid-1930s period. Historically, the story has been repeated that the formulas for these colors were lost in the flood of 1935; ...

Like many Internet sites, we also use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer and is stored on your hard drive. When you visit our Site(s) the cookie identifies your computer to us so that you do not have to re-register each time you visit. We may also use cookies to measure the traffic to our Sites and the use of different services and features of the Sites.

How We Use the Information We Collect

We use Personally Identifiable Information that you provide to communicate with you, to process orders for products and services, to customize advertising and content available on the CollectorsBlueBook Sites, to conduct research for internal purposes and to use such information to improve our services and the CollectorsBlueBook Sites.

If you so choose, we will also use it to send you information about products and services that may be of interest to you. Later on in this Privacy Policy, we provide you with more information on what choices you have.

We use information that is not personally identifiable to determine how people use our web site and its services. For example this data tells us information including how often users click on our advertisements, which files are downloaded most frequently, and which areas of our site are the most popular. Analyzing this data allows us to improve the offerings on and performance of our site(s).

How We Share Information

For example, we use third parties to help with some of the products and services available on our site, such as processing payments and fulfilling orders for products through the CollectorsBlueBook Shop.

We also engage third parties to assist us by tracking the number of visitors to the Sites that have “clicked-through” from specified promotions on third party sites and those visitors’ activities on the CollectorsBlueBook Site. When we supply personally identifiable information to these third parties, we require them to use it only for the function they are helping us with.

When you see parts of our site with a prominent brand of another company, information you supply (or authorize for use) in that part of the site will be shared with the other company that is cooperating in providing the service. Please visit that company’s site to learn more about their information practices.

We aggregate the Anonymous Information that we collect and exchange it with advertisers and others who are interested in our services.

We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information when required by law or under the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to conform to applicable law, comply with subpoenas, court orders or legal process served on CollectorsBlueBook, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, and to protect the property or interests of CollectorsBlueBook, its agents and employees, personal safety, or the public. Under such circumstances, CollectorsBlueBook may be prohibited by law, court order or other legal process from providing notice of the disclosure, and CollectorsBlueBook reserves the right to not provide such notice in its sole discretion.

If we become part of another organization, including without limitation, by merger, change of control, sale of assets, or other acquisition, the acquiring organization will obtain and have access to the Personally Identifiable Information collected by CollectorsBlueBook and it will assume the rights and obligations regarding your Personally Identifiable Information as described in this Privacy Policy. If we cease operation, your information may be transferred to and used by another company that offers similar or related products or services. While we cannot predict a great deal about such an unlikely event, we would hope this could provide you continuity of service.

What Choices You Have

When you register for membership at the CollectorsBlueBook Site, you have the option of checking a box to tell us that you do not want us to send you our email newsletter. You may also opt out of an automatic logging process that associates your Personally Identifiable Information with your recent page views. We will keep track of your decisions in our database.

Even if you choose not to receive information from us, we reserve the right to communicate with you on matters we consider especially important.

Making Changes

You may review the Personally Identifiable Information we have on file by logging in and clicking the appropriate listing form in the “Edit My Listings” tab on your user home page. Once there, there you may modify information that is incorrect and delete certain information from your profile. You can also change your permission for us to send you e-mail newsletters.

To delete your Personally Identifiable Information, you must manually change your data fields to null values. Otherwise, your data is retained indefinitely. Please note that the public comments made by a user in a chat room or a forum cannot be deleted. Data related to transactions for products and services through the CollectorsBlueBook Shop is retained indefinitely. Moreover, since, Anonymous Information is not identifiable as originating with you, it cannot be reviewed or changed by you.

We may change this policy from time to time. While we will usually indicate major changes by notice on our site, please check here from time to time to see if there is a revised policy posted.

Publicly Posted Information

If you register as a member of the CollectorsBlueBook Sites and make postings to chat rooms, forums or your user page, please remember that anything you post is publicly available. The user name you have chosen during the registration process is visible to all users of the Site. If you visit another member’s user page, your user name will appear on that page.

Your user page will also show certain statistics regarding your use of the Site, such as the date you became a member, how long ago you last visited the Site, the categories of materials you have posted. Your user profile, and the information you choose to include in your profile, will also be available to other users of our chat rooms, forums and to visitors that access your personal user page. CollectorsBlueBook does not control, and is not responsible for, the use of any information or content that you have exposed to the public through your use of the CollectorsBlueBook Sites.


During sessions in which you give us information such as credit card numbers, we encrypt your transmissions using SSL (“Secure Sockets Layer”) technology. We keep the Personally Identifiable Information you provide on servers that are protected by firewalls and other technological means against intrusion or unauthorized access. They are located in a physically secure facility, and only our employees and agents with a need to know the information are given access.

While no amount of security can give a perfect guarantee, you can have a high degree of confidence that the personally identifiable information you give us is protected from unauthorized access and use. We rely on you to select passwords that cannot be guessed easily and to safeguard those passwords from disclosure. Please contact us if you have any information regarding unauthorized use of the CollectorsBlueBook sites.


We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time as our services change and expand. If we update this Privacy Policy, we will notify you about significant changes by sending a notice to the email address specified in your account or by posting a notice of such changes on the CollectorsBlueBook Sites. Unless otherwise provided, the revised terms will take effect on the date they are posted. Once such changes become effective, your continued use of the Site will signify your acceptance of the new Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, or any revised Privacy Policy, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Site.
