by Keith Cornett on April 8, 2010

Update on The Dragon Vette

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.

Songs About Corvettes: Awesome Z06 by Pete

by Keith Cornett on April 7, 2010

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.

In 1989 VH1 held a contest where they gave a way 36 Corvettes – one for every year beginning in 1953 through 1989 – to a single winner. Dennis Amodeo, a carpenter from Long Island won the collection, but before taking delivery he sold all 36 Corvettes to Pop artist Peter Max who planned to use the cars for an art project. The project never got off the ground and the Corvettes ended up parked in a Brooklyn building where they were essentially forgotten.

LG Motorsport's Lou Gigliotti is Running for Congress

I just got a heads up from a friend that Lou Gigliotti, Corvette race car driver and founder of LG Motorsports is running for the 4th congressional district in Texas. Without getting too political on a car blog, Lou’s 30 years experience as a small business owner and his legendary competitiveness is just the kind of experience needed in Washington. Please take a moment to visit Gigliotti for Congress and let’s all wish a fellow Corvette driver lots of luck in this new endeavor.

Highlights from the NCRS Winter Regional in Kissimmee

This weekend was the 32 annual NCRS Winter Regional held at Old Town in Kissimmee, Florida. After a drenching rain Thursday evening that flooded much of the swap meet and vendor field, the sky turned blue on Friday and temperatures hovered in the mid-seventies for the rest of the weekend. As we always like to do, we have a bevy of Corvette pictures to share. If i’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. If you own a Corvette, you need to get to one of these larger shows. Hundreds of Corvettes to see, plus the vendors and used parts sellers will ensure you won’t go home empty handed.
