With the utmost respect to all Corvette enthusiasts young and old – and without an ounce of malice – I feel obligated to say that the current Chevy Corvette has an image problem…it is borderline irrelevant to younger buyers (designated as those under 40).
One of the topics I love covering at the big Corvette shows are the vanity plates that owners put on their Corvettes. Corvettes at Carlisle is no exception as the thousands of Corvettes parked in the fun field and surrounding lots make for a target rich environment when it comes to seeing the fun and witty comments that owners put on their cars.
A couple weekends ago at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Bob Bondurant was honored by Corvette for all his contributions to the brand which span more than 50 years! As part of the festivities, the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving was loaned a couple of 2014 Corvette Stingrays by Chevrolet and provided hot laps at Laguna Seca throughout the day.
Here’s a great looking set of forged custom wheels from our friends at D2FORGED.com. These are 20 inch front and rear CV3-LP wheels mounted on an Arctic White 2011 Corvette Z06.

We knew it was coming – this battle between the 2013 Viper and the long-awaited 2014 Corvette Stingray.
Edmunds.com quite simply labels it the “Best. War. Ever.” Few would argue.
And (spoiler alert) while Edmunds, in the end, gives the nod to the latest-generation Corvette, it admits that the Viper is a very, very special car, despite its shortcomings.
