Taking advantage of the current red hot vintage Corvette market, Barrett-Jackson will be offering George Barris’ customized 1963 second generation Corvette known as “Asteroid” during their January auction extravaganza in Scottsdale, Arizona, January 12 -19, 2014.
If you can’t make up your mind whether to buy a Corvette or a Viper, then this might be the perfect car for you.
The owner of this C4 Corvette has done major body work and changed it into a 1996-2002 Viper lookalike. The owner doesn’t say which year Corvette it is, but based on the dash, it looks like a 1985-89 before the interior changed in 1990.
The new Corvette Stingray is one of those cars that is just begging for customization that takes an already great car to even higher levels.
One such treatment comes to us courtesy of Michigan-based TZD, which has named it the P58 Concept.
Forgiato Wheels has recently shown off a rendering of a widebody C7 Corvette Stingray that the company is building for the SEMA show next month in Las Vegas. The Corvette is being modified by Topo aka the self-proclaimed widebody king. The render shows what the finished Corvette will look like when finished but we also found some pics showing the transformation in progress.
I really like how the Corvette Stingray sounds on these dyno videos. Like this one from Late Model Racecraft after a Heads/Cam swap. With those upgrades, the car is pushing 470 rwhp. Headers coming next.

The C7 Corvette was spotted at a Cars and Coffee gathering in California over the weekend.
When Harley Earl left General Motors in 1963, he was gifted with this unique Corvette Sting Ray Convertible that was customized to his interests by the style department he originally created. The Harley Earl Corvette was the featured vehicle at Mecum’s 2013 Chicago auction and a little after 3pm ET on Saturday afternoon, the hammer fell with the sold price reaching $1.5 million.
