I know we just showed a video from Chevrolet earlier this week featuring Jay Leno and Rick Hendrick talking about the new 2014 Corvette Stingray, but this video from Jay Leno’s Garage features more of the Corvette Caravan from Monterey to Pebble Beach led by Leno and GM’s Global Design Chief Ed Welburn.
Along the way, Jay talks about his love of manual transmission cars and when he pulls onto the greens at The Quail in Pebble Beach, he remarks “Get that foreign crap out of here.”

Last week at the C7 Corvette Stingray Media Drive event in Monterey, Chevy had an autocross course set up on a concrete tarmac just behind the airplane hanger where the entire event was staged. Three Corvettes, all 7-speed Z51 cars, were on the track. I chose the Torch Red Stingray (because everyone knows that red Corvettes are the fastest).
