While most of us in the Corvette community don’t take our Corvettes for granted, they are always around as part of our families and, like the family dog or cat, we sometimes tend to forget how really special they are.

Not so for Jonathan “Randy” Williamson of Bluffton, Ohio. On the day before Halloween, there were no tricks played on Randy, only a very special treat—he got the chance to live out his dream of a ride in a Corvette convertible. Fifty-five-year-old Williamson has been on dialysis for over 20 years and lives in Richland Manor, a senior living healthcare campus community. His passions are cars and music, and one of his fondest bucket-list items was to take a ride in a Corvette.

[PICS] Corvette Seller Mike Furman's Special Gift to New Corvette Buyers

It’s sort of fun to sit back and watch two of our sponsors here at CorvetteBlogger get together to offer a special gift for new Corvette owners.

We learned back at Corvettes at Carlisle that CorvetteFurman.com’s Mike Furman will be offering samples of Adam’s Polishes when he delivers Corvettes to new owners. Now that the packaging is complete, we get our first chance to check out the goods.

As Adam’s is the official detailing product of the Chevrolet Corvette, the four-pack of Adam’s Polishes includes the essentials to get any new Corvette owner started. The kit contains Adam’s Car Shampoo, Detail Spray, VRT (Vinyl, Rubber and Tire Dressing) and the Total Interior Detailer.

[POLL] What Will the Corvette Z06's Nurburgring Time Be?

Germany’s famous Nurburging. 13 miles of ups, downs, twists, and turns affectionately referred to as the Green Hell. Over the last decade automakers have used ‘Ring lap times as a means to define the performance of their latest creations. Back in 2011 Corvette test driver Jim Mero lapped the Nordschleife (“North Course”) in 7:19.63 in a C6 ZR1. But what will the new 2015 Z06′s lap time be?

Baseball Fans Disappointed in Chevy's award of a Colorado instead of a Corvette for the World Series MVP

Last night I watched Game 7 of the World Series which saw the San Francisco Giants crowned World Champions after a 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals. But the real action happened during the Chevrolet post game show when Chevrolet Zone Manager Rikk Wilde presented Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner with a Chevrolet Colorado. Rikk was very nervous during his presentation of the keys and the Washington Post describes his appearance as battling “a cardiac arrest”.

With his nervousness very apparent and repeatedly glancing at his notes, Wilde went off-script and stumbled upon the greatest Chevrolet tag line since “The Heartbeat of America” in describing the Colorado by saying “It combines class-winning and leading, um, you know, technology and stuff with, uh, WiFi powered by OnStar.”

Immediately, #TechnologyandStuff and #ChevyGuy were trending topics on twitter.
