We’ve featured a lot of fast and powerful Corvettes here on CorvetteBlogger.com. Way back in 2009 we first told you about Rod Saboury’s wicked street legal 1963 Corvette drag car. The 2,600 horsepower (no, that’s not a typo) monster will run the quarter mile in a scant 6.75 seconds. That’s just about how long it took the car to earn the title of the World’s Fastest Street Legal Car. If you’re looking for something to drive 1 kid to school, make an ice cream run, or just take a brief ¼ mile drive you’re in luck as the car is currently for sale on eBay.
We threw a picture of this 2007 Corvette Z06 up on our Facebook page last week and since it got a tremendous response there with nearly 500 likes, we figured it was worth a more in-depth review. Besides, we love double-threat custom as much as the next guy. Not only does this Corvette Z06 feature a gorgeous exterior, it also received some serious engine mods as well.

Jon Flickinger didn’t let this one get away.
Inspired by memories of a C1 that got away from him a long time ago, the Salina, Kansas man took charge this time, and the result is a 1962 Corvette resto-mod that’s absolutely music to his ears – and everyone who sees and hears it.
The Edelbrock name is legendary when it comes to performance.
Legendary hot rodder Vic Edelbrock and his daughter Christi recently took a few moments to talk about their supercharger for the Corvette Z06 with Adam Carolla and Matt D’Andria, hosts of the online video series CarCast. You can see their interesting conversation on this video we found.
If there’s ever been a dream job for a Corvette fanatic, Dr. Jamie Meyer just punched the clock.
He had the honor of driving the actual Corvette ZR1 pace car that was used in this year’s Indy 500 on a 1500-mile segment of the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour, a seven-day, seven-city traveling car show that went from GM’s Milford Proving Grounds to Arlington, Texas.
Paul Corneau of The Corvette Shop in New York has a really unique 1963 Corvette, or should we call it it a 1963-67?
He built his one-of-a-kind car with parts from three different cars, mostly 1967 body parts, though he did keep the split window from a ’63.
Corneau calls it his “Mythical ’67 Corvette.”
Here’s a trivia question for you: Has there ever been a Corvette made of anything but fiberglass?
If you knew the answer is yes, then you probably know the story behind the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Rondine, a rare prototype that was commissioned by the Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina – and was made of steel!
A 1998 Corvette has gone from being a devil to an angel.
The car once belonged to a notorious drug dealer named Bradley Dunham in Sullivan County in the Catskills. Back in the day, he would park it across the street from the Livingston Manor school on weekends to peddle his crack cocaine.
Well, folks, we can say without a doubt that this is not the latest leak from a General Motors supplier showing a sneak peek of the C7 Corvette!
Apparently, it’s just what happens when someone has some spare parts left over from a C5 Corvette and a couple of fourth- and fifth-generation Mustangs and mixes some good bodywork skills with an overactive imagination.
