[VIDEO] 1968 Corvette Gets the ACCEL IT Treatment at Hot Reno Nights

ACCEL has just started a new show called ACCEL IT, and the first vehicle chosen after a lengthy search by host Jenny Long turned out to be a very cool 1968 Corvette convertible from the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions and Hot August Nights cruise in Reno, Nevada.

Let me ask you a question.

Did you eat a lot of ice cream with sprinkles when you were a little kid?

Well, now that you’re all grown up and wearing your big-boy britches, you’d better quit eating it because ice cream with sprinkles is just for kids.

If you follow the logic of some folks who apparently believe that a Corvette driver must be under 30 with jet black hair and a 30-inch waistline, then it makes just as much sense to ban anyone over the age of 12 from eating ice cream with sprinkles.

Mobil 1 Oil Rebates Available Now Through the End of May 2015

Since 1992, Mobil 1 motor oil has been the “factory-fill” brand of oil at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green. And if the factory is recommending the use of Mobil 1 oil, then that’s what you should use, right?

So when we heard about this rebate offer on Mobil 1 oil and knowing that many Corvette owners like to service their own rides, we thought it would be worth sharing the news and hopefully you can save a few bucks during the process.

Just a string of coincidences or a guiding hand from above?

You decide.

Dawn Hughes grew up in a family that loved Corvettes. In fact, for years her dad drove a 1964 Sting Ray convertible that he loved, but he eventually had to sell the car.

But not before he passed on his love of Corvettes to Dawn. In fact, she saved all she could for years to get one of her own. During what turned out to be their last conversation about Corvettes, her dad smiled and said, “I want to be there when you get it.”

Former Barn Find 1960 Corvette Has Great Story Behind it

The story behind a Corvette is what makes it stand out in a crowd.

Take this 1960 Corvette, which has had just two very conscientious owners since rolling out of the factory in St. Louis, Mo., not once but twice.

The original owner, a teacher named Ed Graye from West Frankfort, Ill., ordered the car with the “big” 290hp, fuel-injected 283 engine with a three-speed manual because he wanted to drag race it on the streets.

The Ridetech 1972 Corvette Coupe: From Stock to Fire-Breathing Restomod in 48 Hours

Way back in 2011 the folks at Ridetech took a stock first generation Camaro and, with the help of several aftermarket manufacturers and several of their friends, made it into a Camaro restomod in 48 hours. Now, after everyone associated with that project has caught up on their sleep and has forgotten what sleep deprivation feels like, they are going to do it again—only this time with a stock 1972 Corvette.

Watch The Stig Thrash a Corvette Stingray Around Top Gear's Test Track

Last week on the BBC’s Top Gear, we got to see the C7 Corvette Stingray make its first appearance on the British automotive show where it was featured for nearly 10 minutes.

The Velocity Yellow Stingray was put through its paces by co-host Richard Hammond and then it was compared and reviewed against the Porsche Cayman GTS. Of course, no Top Gear appearance is complete without seeing how the car would place on the leaderboard when driven by ace test driver “The Stig”.

While the TV version showed a split screen between the cars while the lap was being run, Top Gear has released the full video of the Corvette Stingray’s individual lap by The Stig.
