Our new friend Jeremy Welborn attended the 25th Annual Lone Star Corvette Classic in Texas over the weekend and has given us permission to share some of his photos from the event. We picked a set of 50 images featuring everything from C1s to C7 Stingrays.
A Newport, Tennessee family has lost its peace of mind after a suspected arsonist destroyed three of their vehicle in the early morning hours of Saturday, May 17.
John Scott Jones of 641 Pikeview Street told police that his wife, Leslie Jones, woke him up at 3:43 a.m. after she heard a noise outside and told him that the side of their house seemed to be “really hot”, according to Patrolman Derrick Wright.
Mr. Jones looked outside to see three of the family’s four vehicles on fire.
When you think of Monaco, that tiny country perched between France and the Mediterranean Sea, you probably have visions of Formula 1 racing on the street course through the city or James Bond gambling at the Monte Carlo casino. Most likely, a C5 Corvette is farthest from your mind.
But that will change after you watch this video showing a C5 Corvette Convertible cruising the streets and tunnels of the city with a beautiful exhaust note flowing from the aftermarket Corsa exhaust.
Last weekend’s Bash at the National Corvette Museum provided the perfect opportunity to assemble our latest edition of Corvette vanity plates. We love wandering the parking lots and show fields at any event to check out what Corvette owners have chosen to adorn their rides with. As usual, we weren’t disappointed by what we found.
The sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum has been covered extensively by reporters from around the world.
But a CNN.com report out last week has some new information that we haven’t heard before.
CNN interviewed renowned Corvette artist Dana Forrester, who’s also lead Corvette restoration member of the museum’s board of directors, and he has some interesting ideas about what to do with the sinkhole.
Here’s a story that should make you proud you drive a Corvette – and a story that should make you appreciate every minute you get to climb behind the wheel of your pride and joy.
Not everyone is so fortunate.
If you’re a fan of the legendary Beatles, and more specifically, Sir Paul McCartney, you might want to be on the lookout for a blue C5 Corvette convertible if you happen to be in California.
Check out these photos of a rather dapper, though casual, McCartney as he took his C5 Corvette on a “long and winding road” Tuesday that ended at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
After seeing the condition of the first Corvette to fall into the National Corvette Museum’s Sinkhole and the last one out, it’s pretty hard to be excited about the retrieval of the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette. But the final Corvette is now out and that marks the completion of “Operation Corvette Plus” which is what the workers dubbed the rescue of the “Great 8″ Corvettes that fell into the 40-ft sinkhole on February 12th.
Good news from the National Corvette Museum this week. They announced on Monday with a photo posted on their facebook page that construction workers had finally located the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 in the sky dome sinkhole. The Z06 was one of two member-donated Corvettes to have fallen into the sinkhole and as the surveillance tape shows, it was the first Corvette to fall when the floor split open in the early morning hours of February 12th.
This might be a great case of the glass being half full or half empty, depending on your perspective.
Half empty? The driver of this blue C5 Corvette convertible was driving at a high rate of speed when he lost control and sent his sports car cannonballing into a ditch of nasty water near The Outlets mall in Pearl, Mississippi.
Half full? He was not injured and just got a little wet as he escaped from the Corvette.
