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.
Like many Corvette enthusiasts, I’ve always loved the look of the 1969 Stingray.
Here’s a fellow who took his love for the ’69 ‘Vette a step further.
“Ever since I can remember I’ve always wanted a ’69 Vette. So I built one,” says Brickdater.
Back in January at the North American International Auto Show, we noticed that Chevy had parked a 2015 Corvette Z06 in the new Shark Gray exterior parked next to a 2014 Corvette Stingray wearing Cyber Gray. Inside Cobo Hall, the difference between the two colors was obvious, but the real test would be how the colors will compare next to each other out in the sun.
Now that 2015 Corvettes are shipping, we’ve got a great comparison of the new 2015 Shark Gray exterior next to a 2014 Corvette Stingray wearing the now defunct Cyber Gray. To further the comparison, a 2015 Corvette Stingray in Blade Silver is also shown. The photos of the three Stingrays come from our good friends at Kerbeck Corvette in Atlantic City.
Got some great news for us Corvette fans! The new 2015 Corvette Z06 will be featured on Jay Leno’s Garage: The Ultimate Car Week which airs tonight on CNBC at 10 PM ET/PT.
The show takes an in-depth look at all the great cars that were on display during Monterey Week in California which culminates with the Pebble Beach’s Concours d’Elegance. We’ll get Jay’s unique perspective on the car collecting hobby as only he can deliver and of course we’ll see him driving a yellow 2015 Corvette Z06 with GM’s Ed Welburn.
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.
A few months ago, I wrote about my experience of cramming $300 worth of groceries in a C6 Corvette convertible. You’d be surprised how much a Corvette can hold these days.
But we found a slide show on the Web this week of a man in Alberta, Canada, that has us beat.
The dude apparently forgot what kind of car he was driving when he bought a huge stuffed bear at a Costco store.
During the Corvettes at Carlisle weekend, a number of people in the hobby ranging from media types like myself, members of the GM Corvette Team and selected Corvette vendors are given VIP status and sent out to the show field to pick a Corvette for the celebrity choice award. Winning a Celebrity Choice Award for an attendee is a big deal as not only does the winner receive an award, he gets to drive in the Celebrity Choice Parade by the Grandstands on Sunday.
It’s a huge responsibility and one we take serious here at CorvetteBlogger. For this year’s salute to Corvettes at Carlisle’s co-founder Chip Miller, we selected the white 1967 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible owned by Dennis King as Keith’s Choice Award for 2014.
One of our favorite events at Corvettes at Carlisle is the Friday afternoon burnout contest. You’re never quite sure who’s going to show up and once the tires start spinning, anything can happen. This year’s event did not disappoint with three contestants in two white C4s and one custom C5 Corvette plus a demonstration from the father-daughter team of Lance and Ella Miller.
