Here are some great photos of Corvettes that were in attendance at the 4th Garden State NCRS Regional show in Wildwood, NJ.
How about we kick off the start of this week right with a Monday morning Corvette burnout. Here is a black C3 Corvette laying down some rubber on a deserted stretch of two lane blacktop.
A set of headers on your classic C2 or C3 Corvette can increase horsepower and give your car a more powerful sounding exhaust note. Doug’s Headers of East LA has been one of the most respected names in headers since the 60′s and they have recently teamed up with Corvette Central and CorvetteCentralExhaust.com to introduce the Doug’s Headers line of exhaust components for C2 and C3 Corvettes.
Fifty years ago this month, Alan Shepard became the first American to travel into outer space. When he returned to Earth, GM presented him with a brand new 1962 Corvette and the connection of Corvettes and Astronauts became the stuff of legends.

Get those DVR’s programmed to catch this week’s episode of My Classic Car featuring Dennis Gage. This week the certified car nut travels to McKinney, Texas to check out (and of course drive) a cool C3 and a fantastic C2 Restomod.
It’s new versus old in this video of an Atomic Orange C6 Corvette Z06 racing a 1973 Corvette Coupe down the strip. Obviously modified, the C3 Corvette gets the slightest of jumps on the Z06 at the start but that 505-horsepower LS7 kicks in and it’s neck and neck down the straightaway. Who wins is anyone’s guess. You’ll have to watch after the jump.
Last night on SPEED’s Car Warriors, the Challengers (red team) took on the All Stars (blue team) in the customizing build-off of two 1976 Corvettes and walked away with the win (as well as both cars). The All Stars vision for their Corvette was much more over the top then the Challengers, but it was the road test that probably sealed the win as the All Stars car was deemed “unsafe” to drive by all three judges. Our friends at SPEED sent us some additional photography of the cars taken during filming of the show and we’ll share them with you after the jump.
The premise behind SPEED’s CAR WARRIORS is pretty simple. Give two teams identical cars and 72 hours to turn it into a custom ride. At the end of each show, a panel of celebrity judges evaluates the cars and selects the winner. The latest show airs this Wednesday at 9pm EST and surprise, the two teams are each given a 1976 Corvette to work their magic on.
The seats in your classic Corvette are one of the areas that tend to get worn down over the years. Worn seats not only affect the look of your Corvette, but a sagging seat with no support can also affect your driving experience. If you’re planning on restoring your seats, check out this great new 4-part video series from Corvette America on how to restore and recover seats for 1970-75 Corvettes.
