When the third-generation Corvette made its debut in the fall of 1967, the world was speechless. The tricked-out fiberglass-bodied two-seater with its bulging fenders, removable roof panels and elongated snout garnered a collected gasp of disbelief from just about anyone with a pulse. However, the new Stingray was received with mixed emotions by true 'Vette fanatics. After all, the previous-generation five-year-old Sting Ray (two words until 1968) had been far and away the most popular Corvette.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - About 80 antique, classic and custom cars were on display Saturday on Main Street for the first "Waynesboro on Wheels," sponsored by the Waynesboro Area Jaycees. Part of the street was blocked off to traffic from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. so people could stroll around freely and look at the shined-up classic cars, some of which were for sale. The Blue Ridge Pickers, a five-man acoustic group, provided live music. Brian Posey, the president of the Jaycees, said the group wanted to sponsor an event that would attract people to Waynesboro's downtown business area.

View the slideshow of Dave and his cars. The only things worth saving on his '66 Chevy Nova were the roof and the wiper cowl. The ground could be seen through rusted out holes in the floor. Trees grew through the front of the car. That was eight years ago. It took Dave Cauffman four years to fix up the classic Nova into a street rod. He entered it in two car shows and won best of show for both. But it wasn't the trophy hardware Cauffman was after. Instead of entering the shiny remodeled car in competition after competition, he's driven this particular car up to the Classic Car Group for Children Cruise-In in the Valley Mall parking lot during car show season for the past three years.

His future was mapped out for him, wasn't it? If everything fell into place, and the "ordinary" pattern fit, Reeves Callaway could have walked into his father's golf business and quietly gone about building the family empire. There was just one problem: Callaway is no quiet, ordinary man. If you don't know the story, Callaway's father was that Callaway, the founder of the "Big Bertha" golf club and Callaway Golf, a bold company that allowed the average golfer to do something extraordinary with his or her game.

Just about everybody at a car show has a story to tell. Some are more poignant than others. For years, Wayne and Susan Heinbaugh of St. Thomas, Pa., were fixtures in the car-show circuit. They would polish up their purple and white 1979 and 1973 Corvettes until they sparkled, said the Heinbaughs' son, Steve Heinbaugh. But that stopped two years ago. On Aug. 14, 2011, Wayne lost his battle with pancreatic cancer and Susan just couldn't continue showing their cars without him. So the cars stayed in the garage until the Antrim Brethren in Christ Church Cruz-in Car Show on Saturday.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The M&S Harley-Davidson Motorcycle-Corvette Show celebrates two great American traditions, event chairman Ron Yaukey said. Yet each Labor Day weekend, the annual show promotes something even more American and a bit more important -- people helping people. This year's show benefited the Children's Aid Society of the Frances Leiter Center in Chambersburg. "These motorcycle people, they like to help people, especially kids," Yaukey said. "This is a good show for them because they like to help, but they also like to ride and they like to show off their bikes.

The 1963 Sting Ray coupe will forever be remembered as the car that changed the direction of the Chevrolet Corvette, but not without massive controversy, GM infighting and a very prominent and short-lived design feature. In fact, without the changes made for '63, it's quite possible that the Corvette would have died. Truth be known, "America's Sports Car," as it came to be called, wasn't given much of a chance when it first appeared at General Motors' 1953 Motorama car show.

Former Corvette general engineer Zora Arkus Duntov had a dream: to see the Chevrolet Corvette of the 1950s transformed into a serious performance car. Intended or not, the fifth-generation Corvette, which debuted in 1997, fulfilled that dream. With its powerful 5.7-liter V-8 engine, sharp handling and improved structural rigidity, the C5 was a true bargain when compared to many other sports cars. The C5-R Corvette project, announced in 1998, was actually campaigned by GM and not an outside race team.
