One of the great things about the Corvette community is its appreciable tolerance of divergent viewpoints. Those who think the ultimate Corvette is a pristine Top Flight® award winner get along, at least for the most part, with those who think that a 1,000 horsepower in their modified Corvette is almost enough. If we accept this premise, then there must be Corvette fan somewhere who is also a Transformers aficionado and would love to have a modern, say a 2006, Corvette coupe that has been customized to pay homage to Autobot Sideswipe from the film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
Like many Corvette enthusiasts, I’ve always loved the look of the 1969 Stingray.
Here’s a fellow who took his love for the ’69 ‘Vette a step further.
“Ever since I can remember I’ve always wanted a ’69 Vette. So I built one,” says Brickdater.
Got some great news for us Corvette fans! The new 2015 Corvette Z06 will be featured on Jay Leno’s Garage: The Ultimate Car Week which airs tonight on CNBC at 10 PM ET/PT.
The show takes an in-depth look at all the great cars that were on display during Monterey Week in California which culminates with the Pebble Beach’s Concours d’Elegance. We’ll get Jay’s unique perspective on the car collecting hobby as only he can deliver and of course we’ll see him driving a yellow 2015 Corvette Z06 with GM’s Ed Welburn.
A few months ago, I wrote about my experience of cramming $300 worth of groceries in a C6 Corvette convertible. You’d be surprised how much a Corvette can hold these days.
But we found a slide show on the Web this week of a man in Alberta, Canada, that has us beat.
The dude apparently forgot what kind of car he was driving when he bought a huge stuffed bear at a Costco store.
One of our favorite events at Corvettes at Carlisle is the Friday afternoon burnout contest. You’re never quite sure who’s going to show up and once the tires start spinning, anything can happen. This year’s event did not disappoint with three contestants in two white C4s and one custom C5 Corvette plus a demonstration from the father-daughter team of Lance and Ella Miller.
Here’s a clever twist on the popular ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that’s sweeping through Social Media these days.
Courtney Moats is interning in the Chevrolet PR department and she took part in the ice bucket challenge on Tuesday at the Milford Proving Grounds where the Corvette Team was hosting the first rides in the 2015 Corvette Stingray.
It’s no surprise to see a Corvette in a movie or TV show.
For example, a red C7 coupe steals the show (at least for this writer) in the new TNT series Murder in the First.
Now a red 1959 Corvette (with white coves) figures prominently in the upcoming movie Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
If you still haven’t yet entered Chevrolet’s Race to Win Corvette Sweepstakes, you need to get off the grid and head to a computer near you.

SHARK WEEK! Check out our favorite Shark, the famous Mako Shark II Corvette Concept designed by Bill Mitchell.
The Mako Shark was GM VP of Design, Bill Mitchell’s vision for the follow up to the Corvette Stingray. Legend has it he was inspired by sharks he’d caught in the Bahamas. The design cues for this car can be seen in Corvettes that rolled out starting in 1968 model year.
