We were very surprised to learn that the 4th installment of the “Transformers” movie franchise from Director Michael Bay has started filming out in Monument Valley near the borders of Arizona and Utah. Joining the cast of cars to be featured in the movie is the 2014 Corvette Stingray.
General Motors North American President Mark Reuss will drive the 2014 Corvette Stingray pace car at this weekend’s “Indy Dual in Detroit”. The Indy Dual in Detroit races include the Grand-AM and IndyCar races on Belle Isle this Saturday and Sunday.
The National Corvette Museum welcomed a special visitor today. Rutledge Wood, co-host of Top Gear USA on the History Channel and a reporter for SPEED TV made a personal video to the NCM and toured the exhibits. During the visit, Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Dave Tatman brought over a new Velocity Yellow 2014 Corvette Stingray and we were told that Wood was “blown away” by the new C7.
Last week we ran an image from Getty that showed Shane Steelman’s red Corvette Z06 surrounded by the destruction from the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma on Monday, May 20th. Shane saw the picture on our Facebook page and provided even more photos and video. Here is his account of what happened before, during and after the storm as well as the fate of his beloved C5 Z06.
When Bloomington Gold announced that they were moving to Champaign, IL after 10 years St. Charles, IL they did so in order to facilitate bigger and better Corvette-related events like an improved GoldTour.

Talk about your extremes. Elsewhere on this website, you have read about one-owner 1960 Corvettes that are as stock and original as they come.

It’s a story about a dying Corvette enthusiast and the amazing love that his family and friends – along with total strangers and a massive corporation – showed him in the final weeks of his life.
If there is one project we can really get behind, it’s this 2006 Corvette Z06 made to look like the #3 ALMS GT1 Corvette C.6R. We’ve seen this tribute to Corvette Racing’s 2008 season before when the car appeared at 2008′s SEMA show in Las Vegas. We were amazed then and that feeling returned seeing the familiar pictures of the #3 Corvette C6.R in street form. If you like it too and can cover the $80K opening bid, then the Corvette with the Jake Scrape can be yours!
The picture says it all. Shared on facebook.
