LG Motorsport's Lou Gigliotti is Running for Congress

I just got a heads up from a friend that Lou Gigliotti, Corvette race car driver and founder of LG Motorsports is running for the 4th congressional district in Texas. Without getting too political on a car blog, Lou’s 30 years experience as a small business owner and his legendary competitiveness is just the kind of experience needed in Washington. Please take a moment to visit Gigliotti for Congress and let’s all wish a fellow Corvette driver lots of luck in this new endeavor.

Highlights from the NCRS Winter Regional in Kissimmee

This weekend was the 32 annual NCRS Winter Regional held at Old Town in Kissimmee, Florida.

As we always like to do, we have a bevy of Corvette pictures to share. If i’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. If you own a Corvette, you need to get to one of these larger shows. Hundreds of Corvettes to see, plus the vendors and used parts sellers will ensure you won’t go home empty handed.

A Corvette Friend at Bondurant Needs Your Help

by Keith Cornett on January 16, 2010

The Bondurant School of High Performance Driving has been an advertiser on this blog for well over a year now and I say with conviction that there’s not a better group of people to work with. Bob and his team have made many many contributions to the Corvette community. So when we heard through the grapevine last night that one of their employees was hospitalized on Christmas Eve with severe medical problems, we wanted to spread the word. If you can spare any kind of assistance then read on.

Corvette's Almost 4-Seater 1963 Split Window Coupe

If something doesn’t quite look right with this 1963 Corvette Coupe, you get a gold star! That’s because this was a prototype for a “four place” Corvette. That’s right, a Corvette with back seats! The idea came from Ed Cole who wondered if a four-place Corvette could rival the successful four-seat Thunderbird.
