It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Here we have two beautiful icons from the 1960s. The first is obviously a 1969 Corvette Stingray with a wild custom paint job that makes us wish it was in color. And secondly, the mainstay of automotive events is Miss whatever-the-name-of-the-dragstrip.
How would you like to drive a 1954 Corvette with approximately 500 horsepower?
Here’s your chance as a restomod version is currently up for sale on Ebay Motors, with a Buy It Now price of $49,500. As of 5 p.m. Thursday, there have been no bids on the car, which goes off the auction block on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 6:28 p.m. Pacific Time.
Here’s a great looking set of forged custom wheels from our friends at D2FORGED.com. These are 20 inch front and rear CV3-LP wheels mounted on an Arctic White 2011 Corvette Z06.
This beautiful 1965 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe was parked in the fun field at the 2013 Corvettes at Carlisle and when we first saw the restored we literally stopped dead in our tracks and started shooting away with our camera.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a Rossi 66 sighting, but here is a Pearl White Rossi 66 cruising Woodward Blvd in Detroit during August 2013′s DreamCruise.
Although the concept for the Rossi appeared first back in 2008, it took another two years for an actual car to be built. We believe this is the same Rossi 66 (or SixtySix) that made its debut at the EyesOn Design benefit in Detroit during the summer of 2010.

We first told you about Keith Stegath’s electric C3 Corvette back in December of 2011. Now, nearly 2 years later, the battery powered 1976 Corvette continues to take shape. In fact, Stegath told us in a recent email that the car’s first test drive was a 10 mile jaunt to a nearby car show. He also reports that he made it home that day without the need for a tow truck.

We all know that Corvettes draw attention wherever they go.
Just ask the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina.
“I have had people to stop me at stoplights and tell me that was the coolest DARE car they have ever seen,” Cpl. Phillip Goodyear says. “…They love the thought of taking that type of vehicle from a drug dealer.”
I had an epiphany last August after a visit to the GM Heritage Center. As I laid my eyes on the 1959 Corvette Stingray Racer, I knew right then that it was my favorite Corvette design of all time. So how cool is it to see a modern take on the classic Stingray Racer with this rendering by car enthusiast and designer Giovanni Huang.
Earlier this month we found an update to the Corvette Stingray Order Guide detailing the two types of body stripes and the colors they will be available in. At the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Chevrolet displayed several different Corvette Stingrays including these two with the full body racing stripes in colors that haven’t been seen until now.
Filmmaker Michael Bay and his cadre of automotive robots was back in the Motor City last week as a portion of the city was turned into an Asian Metropolis for a scene in the fourth installment of Transformers.
The Green and Black “Race-Inspired” C7 Corvette Stingray was there (actually there were two C7 Stingrays on the set), the yellow Camaro known as Bumble Bee, the black and blue Bugatti and the Western Star Semi Truck that is Optimus Prime.
