The show, hosted by Drew Waters (Friday Night Lights) and Jeff Hammond (NASCAR) will focus on everything Corvette-related, both old and new.

When I was in Detroit last month for the Woodward Dream Cruise, my personal Corvette story was told to a few GM’ers and it eventually made it way to Paul Manzella who runs the Faces of GM website. So I did a quick interview with Paul from GM’s Design on Woodward car show the Wednesday before Dream Cruise and today that video went live so check it out!

A 1969 Corvette is providing a chance for a father and son to come closer together as they work side by side to restore the classic Chevrolet.
Jason Tueller, 21, and his 53-year-old dad, Shayne Tueller, say the restoration project is also providing them a chance to heal after the unexpected death last year of Jason’s sister, Jessica Tueller, 25.

This week, Mid America’s Mike Yager revealed four of the rare and meaningful items that have been donated to the time capsule that will ultimately be opened up on the Corvette’s 100th anniversary in 2053.
A lifelong love of Chevrolet and Corvettes has put a Pennsylvania man in the record books.
Charlie Mallon’s mom says he could tell a Corvette from other cars by the time he was 3 years old. Fittingly, she gets the credit for helping him get started with his record-setting collection of Chevrolet memorabilia that now numbers more than 2,200 (and is continually growing).
And it is official. Back in May, the Guinness Book of World Records officially certified Mallon’s collection as the largest collection of Chevrolet memorabilia in the world after making him jump through all sorts of hoops.
One of the hardest working vendors you will see at a major Corvette show are the guys from Adam’s Premium Car Care Products. Every time we walked by their booth at Corvettes at Carlisle, they had a different Corvette parked in front and several detailers hard at work demonstrating Adam’s products to the assembled crowds.
We caught up with Adam Pitale, founder and President of Adam’s, who was very excited to tell us about their exclusive line of car care products branded and endorsed by GM for the Corvette and Camaro. So we tagged along and had the opportunity to see some of them demonstrated to members of GM’s Corvette Team.
