Corvette Fever was first published by Michael Lee Productions in Mt Morris, Illinois. This appears to have lasted through 1979, then it was published under Prospect Publishing in Triangle, Virginia starting with the July, 1980 issue. The editor was Patricia Stivers. The magazine covered both old and newer Corvettes, and featured restored cars, custom Corvettes and plenty of restoration and technical tips.
In 1989, the magazine was purchased by Larry Dobbs at the Dobbs Publishing Group in Lakeland, Florida. In the next year or so, Dobbs bought Keepin' Track of Vettes. Writers and subscribers were transferred to Corvette Fever.
Finally in 1998, the magazine was sold to Petersen Publishing as part of a larger transaction involving almost a dozen titles. Two years later, it was merged into Petersen's Vette magazine.
Corvette Fever provided net paid circulation data to Gale Research from 1982 to 1983, then again from 1989 to 1995. In the early days, monthly net paid circulation was about 6,000 issues. In the later years, Dobbs reported 10,000 per month for five straight years.
The magazine was published until October, 2010, but only images through 1995 are presently included. All cover images are complete except for: 9/79, 10/79, 11/79 and 12/87.
