During last week’s Detroit Autorama, Cobo Hall was wall-to-wall hot rods and many of those hot rods were Corvettes. The classic hod rod Vettes ranged from originals and restomods to full blown customs like the 1962 Corvette named “Elegance” that won a spot in the Ridler Great 8.

Corvettes on eBay: Murdered Out 2004 Corvette Z06

One of the things I love about Corvettes is that you can learn something new every day about them as well as how they fit it to all different niches of America’s car culture in general.

So I think you’ll agree this 2004 Matte-Black Corvette Z06 easily fits that description.
