[POLL] Have You Made Your Corvette Resolutions Yet?

Ahh, the new year brings so much promise and excitement when you own a Corvette. As I was making my resolutions for the New Year, I saw more than one on my list that was Corvette-related: I’ve got some engine work I’d like to do on my ’66 Vette and am thinking of rejoining the local club.

That got us thinking. Do any of your News Year’s resolutions include your Corvette? Take the poll and let us know!

New C7 Corvette Embroidered Mats from Corvette America

Lloyd Mat’s luxurious and durable Ultimats from Corvette America are made just for the C7 Corvette with a precise custom fit, factory-compatible anchors and your choice of embroidered C7 or Stingray logos.

Ultimats are about twice the weight and density of OE mats with 32 ounces per yard of premium, two-ply nylon yarn and a 5/16” pile height for very long wear and an added level of comfort. They also provide greater coverage and protection than factory mats with precise, computer-controlled cutting and a multi-layer backing for greater stiffness and moisture resistance.

Choose from a variety of C7 or Stingray logo and script combinations and add a new level of style and comfort to your interior. See the embroidered logo choices at CorvetteAmerica.com.

[VIDEO] CorvetteBlogger Visits the Ron Fellows Driving School at Spring Mountain

This year was pretty remarkable for us here at CorvetteBlogger. Not only do we get to talk and write everyday about America’s favorite sports car – the Chevrolet Corvette – but occasionally we get to drive the new Corvettes on a race track as well!

After having the unique opportunity to drive a 2015 Corvette Stingray on GM’s Milford Road Course earlier in the year, I realized my skill level at driving the Corvette fast on the track was not something I was real comfortable with, so I took up an offer to attend a two-day Level 1 driving course at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada.

2007 Corvette Z06 Donated to the National Corvette Museum

Many Corvette enthusiasts have loved the car all their lives.

Cliff Young actually was a Mustang fan for most of his life, but then around the age of 60, he was bitten by the Corvette bug after a trip to a high performance driving school in 2006.

That convinced him it was time for a Corvette!

The Annual Corvette Enthusiast's Night Before Christmas 2014

Since CorvetteBlogger’s founding in 2005, we’ve celebrated Christmas with the posting of a special Corvette version of Twas the Night Before Christmas. Over the last few years, our friend Rick Tavel from Corvetted.com has taken the poem one step further by customizing it so that it references the major Corvette-related events that occurred throughout the year.

Some of the events referenced in his new 2014 version include the debut of the C7.R Corvette racer, the NCM Sinkhole that swallowed eight Corvettes and Chevrolet’s banner sales year for the Stingray.

So now that it is the night before Christmas, gather up the children and take a seat next to the big block Vette in the garage for our annual Corvette Enthusiast’s Night Before Christmas:
