After giving initial signs a few months ago that a portion of the sinkhole would remain as a tourist attraction, the museum’s board of directors voted Saturday instead to fill the hole and restore the building to its previous condition.
Got some great news for us Corvette fans! The new 2015 Corvette Z06 will be featured on Jay Leno’s Garage: The Ultimate Car Week which airs tonight on CNBC at 10 PM ET/PT.
The show takes an in-depth look at all the great cars that were on display during Monterey Week in California which culminates with the Pebble Beach’s Concours d’Elegance. We’ll get Jay’s unique perspective on the car collecting hobby as only he can deliver and of course we’ll see him driving a yellow 2015 Corvette Z06 with GM’s Ed Welburn.
We’ve been believers in Forgiato’s widebody Corvette Stingrays since they first broke onto the scene at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Since then, we’ve been treated to many different flavors in addition to the Aston Martin Blue Coupe that won SEMA’s Design Award for Best Chevrolet Exterior.
The latest widebody on display was posted on Forgiato’s Facebook page last week and shows a bright yellow Corvette wearing 22-inch Forgiato Lavorato ECL wheels that are colored-matched to the new Stingray.
It’s time again for our weekly poll!
Last week you told us that your favorite part of Corvettes at Carlisle was checking out all of the Corvettes for sale there each year. We certainly agree with that although our checkbook does not. Since the National Corvette Museum turns 20 this weekend we want to know how many times you’ve visited in the NCM’s first 2 decades.
Nothing like a Corvette parade to end a fantastic weekend at the Corvettes at Carlisle show. We thought the weather might keep many away but in the end turnout was good from Corvette owners who drove from the fairgrounds as well as Carlisle’s residents who line the streets to watch them.
Late Model Racecraft is back with their twin turbo Corvette Stingray and man this thing flies:
Just finished resetting our own C7 1/4 Mile record! This is a absolute animal of a car that you could let your grandmother drive and she wouldn’t even know it made 800+ hp till she got on the throttle!

Another edition of the Corvettes at Carlisle show has come and gone. Despite the in-climate weather, this show remains a must-attend as there is just so much see and do. In fact, I’d say that a day at Corvettes at Carlisle in the falling rain beats a day sitting behind a desk anytime!
At Corvettes at Carlisle, we walked and walked and walked some more. From the swap meet to the sales corral, from the Chevy Engineers tent on the Manufacturer’s Midway with the new Corvette Z06 to sitting up on the hill with friends and looking at all the remarkable Corvettes parked row after row, we saw it all.
And thanks to our camera, you can catch a glimpse of one of America’s premiere Corvette shows in the gallery below.
A few months ago, I wrote about my experience of cramming $300 worth of groceries in a C6 Corvette convertible. You’d be surprised how much a Corvette can hold these days.
But we found a slide show on the Web this week of a man in Alberta, Canada, that has us beat.
The dude apparently forgot what kind of car he was driving when he bought a huge stuffed bear at a Costco store.
