It’s the last Friday of the month and that means it’s time for “Black Friday” here at CorvetteBlogger.com. Our family has owned a black Corvette Sting Ray for almost five decades and so the most sinister color of Corvette’s color palette is also our favorite. Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 37 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
It’s sort of fun to sit back and watch two of our sponsors here at CorvetteBlogger get together to offer a special gift for new Corvette owners.
We learned back at Corvettes at Carlisle that CorvetteFurman.com’s Mike Furman will be offering samples of Adam’s Polishes when he delivers Corvettes to new owners. Now that the packaging is complete, we get our first chance to check out the goods.
As Adam’s is the official detailing product of the Chevrolet Corvette, the four-pack of Adam’s Polishes includes the essentials to get any new Corvette owner started. The kit contains Adam’s Car Shampoo, Detail Spray, VRT (Vinyl, Rubber and Tire Dressing) and the Total Interior Detailer.
Adam Pitale and Mike Furman discussed the new partnership in this video from 2014′s Corvettes at Carlisle.
The Adam’s detailing sample kit is just another example of how Mike Furman goes to the extra mile for his customers.
If you thinking about ordering a new Corvette Stingray, Z06 or any of the offerings from Callaway, it’s worth your time to give Mike Furman a call. He can deliver the Corvette locally at Criswell Chevrolet in Gaithersburg, MD, to the National Corvette Museum for an R8C Delivery, or to you directly via covered transport. You can find him at CorvetteFurman.com or call his direct line at 301-212-4420.

Germany’s famous Nurburging. 13 miles of ups, downs, twists, and turns affectionately referred to as the Green Hell. Over the last decade automakers have used ‘Ring lap times as a means to define the performance of their latest creations. Back in 2011 Corvette test driver Jim Mero lapped the Nordschleife (“North Course”) in 7:19.63 in a C6 ZR1. But what will the new 2015 Z06′s lap time be?
We don’t know what’s under the hood of this C6 Corvette Z06 but the girl driving it gets the jump on a 2014 SRT Viper and never looks back as she takes the checkered flag in a roll race on an airport runway.
Watch this girl in a Corvette Z06 take down a 2014 SRT Viper in a half-mile roll race. Looks like she nearly loses her hood at the end of the runway.

We’ve always thought the seventh-generation Corvette Stingray looked like a Batmobile.
Now we know one reason why.
General Motors says remnants of an adhesive used to join body panels of the 2015 Stingray can be reused to help save an embattled bat species in North America.
Our friend Adam Boca from NCM Insurance was inside the Corvette Museum’s Skydome today to film an update on the sinkhole remediation when suddenly two zombies climbed over the barricades and interrupted his video shoot. As Adam runs for his life, he reminds us that the NCM Insurance Agency will cover your classic Corvette or other insured vehicles in case a zombie outbreak does occur.

The first of any Corvette model usually goes right to the top of the most collectible list, but it becomes particularly collectible when it’s a very limited production model, such as a Callaway C16. Mecum’s upcoming auction in Anaheim, California will feature the first Callaway C16 convertible, serial number 003, as lot S105.1 on Saturday, November 15.
Last night I watched Game 7 of the World Series which saw the San Francisco Giants crowned World Champions after a 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals. But the real action happened during the Chevrolet post game show when Chevrolet Zone Manager Rikk Wilde presented Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner with a Chevrolet Colorado. Rikk was very nervous during his presentation of the keys and the Washington Post describes his appearance as battling “a cardiac arrest”.
With his nervousness very apparent and repeatedly glancing at his notes, Wilde went off-script and stumbled upon the greatest Chevrolet tag line since “The Heartbeat of America” in describing the Colorado by saying “It combines class-winning and leading, um, you know, technology and stuff with, uh, WiFi powered by OnStar.”
Immediately, #TechnologyandStuff and #ChevyGuy were trending topics on twitter.
