The Woodward Dream Cruise is billed as the largest one-day car event in the world.

It’s the pinnacle of the annual automotive week of ecstasy we told you about a couple weeks ago.

On the morning of August 13th, seven months to the day of its introduction in Detroit, CorvetteBlogger gathered with 20-some other automotive writers at an airport hangar outside Monterey, California to drive the 2014 Corvette Stingray. This was the defining moment. The end all/be all moment of truth. Just how good is the seventh generation Corvette Stingray? Better than you can possibly imagine.
