Saturday marks the 16th time the Junior Achievement Mini Corvette Challenge will be run in Bowling Green.

I was ROTFLMAO after seeing the OMGZR1 Corvette license plate. Very cool. TTYL!
Here is a cool promotional video from our friends at the SmokinVette Corvette forum.
Some collectors will say that when it comes to Early C1 Corvettes (1953-55) the 1954 Corvette is the red-headed step child compared with the 300 1953 Corvettes produced the year earlier or the 700 V8-powered 1955 that came a year after. Truth be told, the 1954 Corvette featured a number of upgrades over its model year predecessor that improved fit and finish during assembly as well as improved drivability and comfort.
General Motors will be giving one lucky winner the opportunity to win a new 2011 Corvette Grand Sport and a trip to the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans.

We got an update on the Dragon Vette that confirms what we wrote about in our original post – the world’s worst custom Corvette is now rocking a supercharger that should boost his horsepower from the standard 436 hp to around 600 hp. According to a member over at LS1Tech.com, the Dragon Vette was spotted at a local dealership getting the centrifugal supercharger installed and most surprising is that under the hood, all appears to be stock and unmolested.
For 57 years, Corvette’s owners have shown their support for American’s sports car by paying homage to it in various forms. From tattoos, custom furniture and dedicated Corvette Blogs, inspired owners want to show the love they have for their Corvettes. For Pete, his 505 horsepower Corvette Z06 was the inspiration for a song that was recently posted on YouTube. Remember that Chevy billboard that says “They don’t write songs about Volvos”? I guess its because Volvo doesn’t have owners like Pete who wants to sing to the world about his “freakin fast” Z06.
