A woman’s brush with death has given a new purpose for her black 1974 Corvette.
Jennifer Barnett knew something just wasn’t right with her body last year. She found a large lump in her left breast in August 2013, and about a month later, doctors gave her the grim news – she had stage IV breast cancer that had apparently spread to her liver.
She embarked on a year of chemotherapy aimed to keep the cancer from growing, and by February, tests showed that the breast tumor had indeed shrunk – but the tumor in her liver had not.
Revorix, a new player in the field of automotive customization, will premiere a modified Corvette C7 Stingray at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada from November 4 through November 7.

A Duntov Turbo Corvette, one of the lesser-known Corvette models, is up for sale on eBay and is being offered at no reserve.
The Duntov Turbo Corvette was a collaboration between American Custom Industries (ACI) and Zora Arkus-Duntov following Zora’s retirement from General Motors in 1975. The Duntov Turbo Corvette should not be confused with the 1979 Turbo Corvette and the 1980 Turbo Corvette, both of which were General Motors prototypes. General Motors did not participate in either the design or the manufacture of the Duntov Turbo as both were the responsibility of ACI.
Ever since getting out football, Brett Favre has let himself go. The former NFL quarterback grew out his beard and his hair got a little shaggy. But now we see that Favre has a new endorsement deal for the MicroTouch Personal Groomer and the little shaver with the LED light finally gets his appearance back under control.
In fact, Brett looks so good by the end of the commercial, he’s taking his wife Deanna out on the town in a Crystal Red Metallic Corvette Stingray Coupe!
Chevy released the amazing 0-60 time of 2.95 seconds for the 2015 Corvette Z06, the fastest time ever for a GM production car.
Equally as amazing is how quickly the Z06 can go from 60 to 0 mph – in 99.6 feet with the Z07 package!
Brembo is the brains behind that stellar performance, and the company recently released a neat video explaining how its carbon ceramic brake system does the trick.

Doug Kinsman was just following orders when one of the judges at a prestigious car show asked him to see if the windshield washers worked on his 1962 Corvette.
Kinsman’s car was being judged last month at Cobble Beach when judge John Ballard requested the operation of the washers.
Kinsman had never tried them so he said he didn’t know if they would work or not.
He soon found out that they did squirt washer fluid, lots of it, in fact – just not in the right place.
