Yenko Corvette on duPont Registry Cover!

Whether it’s luxury homes, plush yachts, or one-of-a-kind supercars, the duPont Registry features the exclusive; the top of the heap, the crème de la crème. The Registry has featured SVE cars before, when the Yenko/SC® 800hp Camaro was featured in the February 2017 issue of the duPont Registry, so, imagine seeing the Yenko/SC® Corvette on the cover of such an august publication. Not that we’re surprised; because the Yenko/SC® Corvette is a top-notch supercar, so it’s only fitting to be counted among such an elite class of vehicles, especially the ones on the cover—Dodge Demon, Plymouth Superbird, and Yenko/SC® Corvette.

There have been many cars produced under the Yenko name: Camaro, Nova, Stinger (Corvair), but never an official Corvette. Yes, there have been many Corvettes sold through the Yenko dealership, and some may have even been specially tuned at that location, or may even sport a Yenko badge, but there has never been an official Yenko/SC® Corvette ever produced, until now.

It’s every automotive enthusiast’s dream to come upon a barn find. Back in the day, someone would literally find untouched classics in barns that had been forgotten by time for decades. Finding cars in an actual barn is rare these days—they’re more like “garage finds”, but everything else is still the same. So, imagine the excitement William Avila felt when he opened up a garage one day to reveal not one, but two 1987 Buick Grand Nationals—both with under 1000 miles, sequentially numbered. They’re essentially twins! However, they weren’t perfectly preserved, as William explains to GM EFI Magazine:

Camaro 50th Anniversary - History in the Making

This year marks a historic event for General Motors: the Chevrolet Camaro 50th anniversary. It's a little hard to believe that a car we've come to love so much has been around for five whole decades, but that's certainly not to say it's washed-up by any means. Far from it, in fact—from first-generation to sixth-generation, the Camaro remains an American icon and an important part of our car culture.
