A couple weeks back, we showed you the C7-based Callaway Shooting Brake Concept called the Aerowagon and its design really turned a lot of heads. But the designers at the Old Lyme, Connecticut tuning shop weren’t finished yet with us. For April Fools Day, Callaway introduces a matching trailer called the AeroWagonette – a new take on how to transport “bothersome” kids when you only have a two-seat sports car.
Last week while in route to the New York Auto Show, I took with me the new mystery novel Braking Points from Tammy Kaehler. This is her second novel and once again features Kate Reilly, a female Corvette race car driver in the American Le Mans Series. If you root for the Corvette C6.Rs and like a good mystery, then hit the jump and I’ll tell you all about it!
The worldwide appeal of the Chevrolet Corvette was never more evident than during a recent event in Abu Dhabi, thousands of miles away from the assembly plant in Bowling Green, Ky.
An exclusive drag day event for Corvette owners helped kick off the Corvette UAE Club’s Chevrolet Knights chapter on March 15 at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. More than 100 Corvette owners and guests attended the event.
One of the interesting displays at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance was from Hagerty Insurance. It’s the 50th anniversary for two automotive icons – the Porsche 911 and the Corvette Sting Ray – and Hagerty asked fans to vote for their favorite.
The new 2014 Corvette Stingray was one of the star attractions at the Amelia Island Concours earlier this month. In addition to showing off the new C7, they also gathered together a collection of some very rare 1963 Sting Rays as well. Click past the jump to check out some of the 50 year old Corvettes that were in attendance at Amelia Island.
Revved Up Ravioli… C7 Sliders… Mako Shark Margarita.
Those are some of the recipe names visible in a graphic telling about Mid America Motorworks’ Chief Cheerleader Mike Yager’s latest inspiration, an automotive-related cookbook to be published this fall.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray made its West Coast debut at the big 60th Anniversary Corvette Celebration at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles a couple of weekends ago, and there for the occasion were several Corvette notables, including designer Kirk Bennion.
Bennion took a few moments to talk with a reporter from the L.A. Times to discuss his efforts on what is just the seventh generation of the 60-year-old sports car.
If you’re looking for the definitive work on Corvette racing, you probably need to rush out and get David Kimble’s new book, “Corvette Racing: the complete competition history from Sebring to Le Mans.”
In fact, you can even get your copy signed if you happen to be able to attend a book signing with the author on Friday, March 22 at 6 p.m. at the Marfa Book Co., in Marfa, Texas, where he has lived with his wife for years.
Sometimes it seems like every for sale ad you read has “low miles” written in it somewhere. That’s not the case with this 1971 Corvette coupe currently listed on Ebay. It’s spent the last 42 years with the same southern California owner and has logged a total of 522,000 miles since it was born. That’s basically the equivalent of a roundtrip visit to the moon.
