It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Here we have two beautiful icons from the 1960s. The first is obviously a 1969 Corvette Stingray with a wild custom paint job that makes us wish it was in color. And secondly, the mainstay of automotive events is Miss whatever-the-name-of-the-dragstrip.
A new original TV series called “Corvette Nation” will be making its debut Friday night at 7pm ET on Discovery’s Velocity channel. The 13-episode series dedicated to America’s favorite sports car will feature all sorts of events, people and of course the car that we love so much.
The first episode was shot during the Bloomington Gold Corvette show this past June so if you were there, make sure you tune in.
How much horsepower will the C7’s new V8 engine be able to produce on the dyno?
Well, Jessi Lang with The J-Turn web show for Motor Trend wanted to find out so she took a 2014 Corvette Stingray to the K&N facility. With Robert “Pops” Calles, product tech with K&N, behind the wheel, the blue Z51 was taken to the limit on the dyno, literally.
We’ve all heard of the AstroVentilation that was used to keep passengers cool in the 1960s and 1970s, sort of a poor man’s air conditioner. But Austin Reed of Texas has an “AstroVette.”
His unusual 1969 Corvette originally belonged to astronaut Alan Bean – the fourth man to walk on the moon nearly 44 years ago – and will be on display Sept. 28-29 at the Corvette Chevy Expo at the Dallas Market Hall.
Corvette enthusiast Lance Miller will continue his own quest to fill his late father’s dream with a fundraising appearance on Sunday, Sept. 22 in Ocean City, N.J.
Lance, of course, is the son of Corvettes at Carlisle co-founder Chip Miller, whose dream of honoring the historic 1960 No. 3 Corvette racer was cut short by a rare disease called amyloidosis.
We first learned that the Corvette Stingray was running on the Nurburgring late Friday afternoon, but over the weekend we found this second video which shows the Laguna Blue C7 Corvette Stingray on the Nordschleife along with Chevy’s new Camaro Z/28. Enjoy the V8 sound!

On Saturday afternoon at the Mecum auction in Dallas, Lot #123 – a 1967 L88 Corvette Roadster from the Buddy Herin collection took center stage. After five minutes of auction banter, the documented 1-20 L88 Corvette Sting Ray became the highest selling Corvette to ever sell at auction with a gavel price of $3.2 million.
The internet’s abuzz tonight after a video has surfaced showing a Laguna Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 testing on the famous Nurburgring. The Corvette is shown making some fast runs through several turns with a helmeted driver and a co-pilot. Could it be that GM Engineers are doing some testing in Germany?
How would you like to drive a 1954 Corvette with approximately 500 horsepower?
