For the 63rd time, gearheads assembled in Detroit for the annual automotive spectacle known as Autorama. Like the groundhog that doesn’t see its shadow, Autorama signals that spring time and the car show and cruising seasons are right around the corner. Thousands of cars – customized, restored, and factory originals alike – invade Cobo Hall each year in hopes of taking home one of the many awards.
If you’re in the Houston area and have done a couple of Corvette shows, you have probably seen Steve and Lou Ann Pond’s bright yellow 2007 C6 known as the “Tweety Bird” Corvette.
Like a lot of us, Steve has been fallen for the new C7. So with a new Corvette Stingray in the garage, the show car designer set about to transform the White and Red Corvette into a show car in its own right.
Way back in 2011 the folks at Ridetech took a stock first generation Camaro and, with the help of several aftermarket manufacturers and several of their friends, made it into a Camaro restomod in 48 hours. Now, after everyone associated with that project has caught up on their sleep and has forgotten what sleep deprivation feels like, they are going to do it again—only this time with a stock 1972 Corvette.
We’re sure this Torch Red Corvette Z06 looked great just as it was when it came off the assembly line in Bowling Green, but a new set of wheels can add that extra personalization to the Corvette owner’s new ride. It’s been a little while since we’ve featured a Corvette showing off custom wheels, but when we first glimpsed this Corvette Z06 wearing these matte black wheels from ADV.1, we knew we had to share these photos with Corvette owners.
Way back in ancient times, say in the era of the 1960s, there was great interest amongst the world’s great automotive companies in a new and remarkable power source, the gas turbine, more commonly referred to as the jet engine. It was a time when the Jet Age showed signs of coming down to earth.
Redline Motorsports built another beast of a C6 Z06! They brought it out to Orlando Speedway to do its first shake down passes at 15lbs of boost. After all the tuning is finalized this beast will be ready for 24lbs! Stay tuned for all-out 24psi runs coming soon!

Some say the best photoshops are those that are somewhat based in reality. The reality is that when you see this “Hennessey HPE2000 Corvette Stingray drag car” for the first time, you may think it’s real. After all, Hennessey Performance Engineering has made a name for themselves not only bring more and more horsepower to the Corvette Stingray, but also with their radical Venom GT program as well.
But alas, this is just a photoshop, “created for competition” says the note that goes along with the posting by RC82 WORKCHOP on Facebook.
