Women can be passionate about cars, too.
Take Kristi Zick of Kindred, North Dakota, for example.
She grew up watching her dad, Roger Langlie, work as crew chief for her uncle’s Super Comp dragster team at a track. That’s the same track where she met her husband, Ryan, after first falling in love with his black Camaro.
Last week we ran an image from Getty that showed Shane Steelman’s red Corvette Z06 surrounded by the destruction from the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma on Monday, May 20th. Shane saw the picture on our Facebook page and provided even more photos and video. Here is his account of what happened before, during and after the storm as well as the fate of his beloved C5 Z06.
When Bloomington Gold announced that they were moving to Champaign, IL after 10 years St. Charles, IL they did so in order to facilitate bigger and better Corvette-related events like an improved GoldTour.

Talk about your extremes. Elsewhere on this website, you have read about one-owner 1960 Corvettes that are as stock and original as they come.

If there is one project we can really get behind, it’s this 2006 Corvette Z06 made to look like the #3 ALMS GT1 Corvette C.6R. We’ve seen this tribute to Corvette Racing’s 2008 season before when the car appeared at 2008′s SEMA show in Las Vegas. We were amazed then and that feeling returned seeing the familiar pictures of the #3 Corvette C6.R in street form. If you like it too and can cover the $80K opening bid, then the Corvette with the Jake Scrape can be yours!
The picture says it all. Shared on facebook.
