Back in the 1970′s John Greenwood teamed up with Eckler’s Corvette parts to produce a run of wide body Corvettes. The entire kit could be purchased through the Eckler’s mail order catalog. Owners could choose several options including different width fenders, unique rear clips in addition to Sportwagon, Panelwagon, and hatch back rear end treatments. If you failed to order one these of kits back in the day, you’ve another chance at it with this Eckler’s Can-Am wide body we stumbled across on eBay.
GeigerCars of Germany is no stranger to the world of Corvettes, so it’s no surprise that the tuner company knocked it out of the park with its C7 supercar.
Their latest creation won’t come cheap, but if you want a Corvette Stingray that you won’t see every day on the street, you might want to talk to them.
If you’ve always wanted a C5 Z06 but didn’t like the fact that it wasn’t available in a convertible or targa roof configuration, then we might have the perfect car for you.
But you better hurry.
At its Las Vegas auction coming up Sept. 25-27, Barrett-Jackson will be offering one of only two GMMG/Skunk Werks Corvette convertible Z06 models in existence!
Well, one thing you can say for sure about this way-out-there, wide-body Corvette Stingray is that everyone will have an opinion about it – even your grandma!
It’s supposedly the widest (and maybe wildest) C7 convertible in the world, according to the fellow who posted a bunch of photos of his friend’s one-of-a-kind Stingray on Corvette Forum late last month.
One of the great things about the Corvette community is its appreciable tolerance of divergent viewpoints. Those who think the ultimate Corvette is a pristine Top Flight® award winner get along, at least for the most part, with those who think that a 1,000 horsepower in their modified Corvette is almost enough. If we accept this premise, then there must be Corvette fan somewhere who is also a Transformers aficionado and would love to have a modern, say a 2006, Corvette coupe that has been customized to pay homage to Autobot Sideswipe from the film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
We’ve been believers in Forgiato’s widebody Corvette Stingrays since they first broke onto the scene at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Since then, we’ve been treated to many different flavors in addition to the Aston Martin Blue Coupe that won SEMA’s Design Award for Best Chevrolet Exterior.
The latest widebody on display was posted on Forgiato’s Facebook page last week and shows a bright yellow Corvette wearing 22-inch Forgiato Lavorato ECL wheels that are colored-matched to the new Stingray.
If you’re at Corvettes at Carlisle this weekend, make sure you check out our friends at Scale Visions who specialize in making custom scale models of Corvettes and other vehicles. One of the featured models this weekend will help raise money and awareness for the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation.
Listen to the sound of this Stingray as it makes its way through a car meet-up and then onto the streets.
Riding around in our friend Stangkilr’s C7 Corvette with a new F1 A Procharger kit, the pressure relief valve is LOUD AS HELL so we were driving around showing off a little, it’s hard not to smile the entire time you’re driving this thing!

Terry Michaelis’, number 27 1953 NASCAR Corvette has won again, though this time not on the race track but on the show field at the 36th Annual Concours d’Elegnace of America at the Inn at St. Johns in Plymouth, Michigan. After winning two awards at Cincinnati’s Ault Park Concours, a 1st in Class in the Racing Division and the Bill Rudd “Best Vette” Trophy, the Michigan concours added another ribbon in the “Racing Through the Ages” category. Michaelis, president of ProTeam Corvette, has been campaigning the historic blue-ribbon 1953 Corvette race car at concours and shows throughout the country since ProTeam completed the restoration late last year.
What Top Gear magazine once called the fastest police car in America apparently will remain the property of the Wake County Sheriff’s Office in Raleigh, N.C., for the foreseeable future.
The sheriff’s office has been using the black 2007 Corvette Z06 for the past five years after seizing it from a drug dealer convicted of felony schedule II possession.
