ProTeam's 'Last'(TM) Corvette Sting Ray To Star In Speed Series


Monday October 16, 5:30 pm ET



NAPOLEON, Ohio, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- SPEED will air a mini-series documenting
the life, times, restoration and sale of ProTeam Classic Corvette Collection
and Sales' "Last"(TM) Corvette (also known as the Last Sting Ray),
the last C2 Corvette produced.


"The Last Sting Ray," part of the popular American Musclecar programming
lineup, is written and produced by Stan Rarden of Restoration Productions LLC.
The documentary consists of six half-hour episodes that tell three parallel
stories -- the history of the Corvette, the life and times of America's most
beloved automobile and the discovery and loving restoration of this automotive
icon.


The documentary is scheduled to begin airing Dec. 7 on SPEED, but in a special
"sneak preview," SPEED will air all six episodes of "The Last
Sting Ray" back-to-back, beginning at 9 p.m. E.T. on Nov. 24. "The
Last Sting Ray" will be the climax of a day-after-Thanksgiving American
Musclecar marathon on SPEED.


"The Corvette is the most influential American car ever produced, and
this particular 'Vette is the last one of the most beloved version GM ever made,"
Rarden said. "The journey of this car from the bustling General Motors
factory in St. Louis to quiet, rural Napoleon, Ohio, home to the world's largest
and most dynamic classic Corvette collection, is a story which will appeal to
automotive enthusiasts and collectors everywhere."


"The 'Last' is an impeccable car with a remarkable history," said
Terry Michaelis, president, ProTeam. "ProTeam is thrilled to share this
one-in-a- million vehicle and its story with SPEED and its viewing audience."


The "Last" is the 186,981st produced by General Motors and is documented
as the last 1967 Corvette (VIN #22940) of the C2 series production -- widely
regarded by collectors and enthusiasts as the greatest Corvette design. It is
also the last factory 427 cid mid-year big-block ever built. This combination
of significant "lasts," according to Michaelis, is what makes VIN
#22940 so valuable.


To further illustrate its status as an esteemed collectible, Michaelis pointed
out that in a 10-year span, the vehicle appreciated 10 times in value. Purchased
in 1995 by collector Bill Mock for $22,940 ($1 per sequential VIN number), Michaelis
later acquired the car from Mock in 2005 for $229,400 ($10 per sequential VIN
number).


Since June 2005, the vehicle was treated to an extensive restoration at Nabers
Brothers in Houston and was granted "Top Flight" certification from
the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS), GoldCertification® at the
2006 Bloomington Gold Corvette show and a Lion Award at the Meadow Brook Concours
d'Elegance.


The 1967 Corvette Sting Ray will be the centerpiece of the Barrett-Jackson
Auction Company's booth at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.


The promotional tour will end January 2007, when the vehicle is sold at No
Reserve during the famed Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Michaelis estimates the "Last" selling for as much as seven figures.


However, the "Last" is more than the restoration of an amazing car.
ProTeam and Lance Miller of Carlisle Productions are using the project to raise
awareness of the deadly disease Amyloidosis. ProTeam has earmarked a dollar-per-dollar
$40,000 pledge from the project for donation to the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation.


Built on July 12, 1967, the "Last" Corvette still bears its original
factory tank sticker (build sheet) listing the following options:


* 986 Silver Pearl paint * L-36 427-390 engine package * C60 factory air conditioning
* N14 side dual exhaust * N36 telescopic steering wheel * N40 power steering

worth of Corvettes are displayed in 90,000 square feet of showrooms and restoration
facilities in Napoleon and Auburn, Ind., with nearly 200 classic Corvettes on
