Here are some photos of cool Corvettes that were in attendance at the Cars and Coffee gathering in St. Petersburg, Florida at the home of the DuPont Registry. For kicks, I also threw in a few non-Corvette photos as well.

You’ll be thinking about this Corvette all day and wondering why…
Corvette owners are known for customizing their rides and for many that starts with their license plate. Vanity plates are a way for Corvette owners to express themselves and their show pride in their car although some owners have a sense of humor. While at the National Corvette Museum’s C5/C6 Bash, we encountered some many Corvettes sporting a custom vanity plates so we thought we’d share our favorites with you.
I’m not gonna lie. This video is a hard one to watch. The owner of C5 Corvette gets turned around and bangs into a wall somewhere on Chicago’s Dan Ryan Expressway. He may have thought his bad luck would end there, but he’s about to find out first hand the damage that can be done to a Corvette by a tow truck operator who’s primary mission is to clear the road, not the care and safety of the C5 Corvette in his possession.

The driver of this 1998 Corvette was allegedly racing another vehicle (article says Corvette, we heard Mustang) in Long Beach. Apparently a street light turned red and the other car stopped, but the Corvette blew the light at 100 mph, hitting a Toyota Cressida which sheered it in half. Miraculously, no one was seriously injured in the crash. No charges were filed at the scene against the Corvette driver, but police are still investigating.
Jay Leno took his C5 Corvette Z06 for a spin the other day without ever leaving the confines of his garage. How’d he do that, you ask? He invited the gurus from Drag Tag Simulations to Jay Leno’s Garage who set up a virtual driving environment that is part dyno, part video game. With his Yellow Corvette Z06 strapped to the platform, Jay was able to cruise the virtual streets and even got in some quarter mile runs. Check out the video after the jump.
One of the things I love about Corvettes is that you can learn something new every day about them as well as how they fit it to all different niches of America’s car culture in general. For me, today’s lesson comes from the term “Murdered Out” which the Urban Dictionary describes as a vehicle that is black with black wheels and looks very intimidating. So I think you’ll agree this 2004 Matte-Black Corvette Z06 easily fits that description.
This black C5 Corvette was minding its own business when it was struck by a silver car. The silver car was trying to avoid getting on the expressway when it switched lanes suddenly and collided with the black Corvette. The Corvette struck a van and then jumped the curb and hit a palm tree outside the television studios of KIII-TV.
