On this week’s webisode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the well-known Porsche affectionado opts for a classic 1956 Corvette in Cascade Green which he uses to pick up and drive around fellow comedian and host of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon.
Some say the best photoshops are those that are somewhat based in reality. The reality is that when you see this “Hennessey HPE2000 Corvette Stingray drag car” for the first time, you may think it’s real. After all, Hennessey Performance Engineering has made a name for themselves not only bring more and more horsepower to the Corvette Stingray, but also with their radical Venom GT program as well.
But alas, this is just a photoshop, “created for competition” says the note that goes along with the posting by RC82 WORKCHOP on Facebook.
We told you a few weeks ago about the sale of the mysterious Peter Max collection of Corvettes.
Apparently there’s more to the story now.
A lawsuit filed recently claims that the psychedelic pop artist of the 1960s – who once painted an entire Boeing 777 and a 600-foot stage for the Woodstock Music Festival – hasn’t paid two New York men the commissions he allegedly promised them for handling the sale of the 36 Corvettes.
Okay, we don’t actually have a “WTF Award” but if we did, this red C5 Corvette from the state of Washington would be a major contender. We haven’t seen a Corvette this messed up since the infamous Dragon Vette.
A Corvette Forum moderator named MasterDave spotted this Corvette in a Pet’s Mart parking lot in Federal Way, Washington.
Normally we have a “Let the Corvette owner customize his ride” attitude but sometimes customizing goes too far. We warn you. What you are about to see cannot be unseen…

If you want to know why the Corvette has always been among the world’s best performance cars, you can thank folks like John Heinricy.
His love for Corvettes has been a big part of his life since he was eight years old and driving tractors on the family farm in South Dakota.
It was in those days that he started riding his bike to a nearby town to watch drag races each Sunday, and wouldn’t you know, the car that caught his eye the most even then was a 1961 silver Corvette.
