We found this cool interactive timeline featuring seven generations of Corvettes over on the Chevrolet UK website. The interactive timeline allows you to view a Corvette model from each generation. You can listen to a sound clip of the exhaust or modify the car’s image by changing its exterior colors or adding different wheels.
Well, at least the headlights still work!
That’s probably little consolation for the driver of this C5 Corvette, who lost control and rammed his car into a traffic light post at the intersection of Paramount and Olsen boulevards in Amarillo, Texas.
When Joel Feingold climbs behind the wheel of his 1998 Corvette, which he bought new in January 1998, it’s definitely not your typical C5.
Joel started his mods simply enough. Not satisfied with the stock exhaust sound, he added a Borla exhaust.
Then he added a cold air intake, headers, and an engine tune to get more power, but he still wasn’t done, not by a long shot.
This video shows Joel, who loves competing in standing start one-mile runs, during three runs in the Mojave Mile sponsored by MKM Racing at the Mojave airport’s 2.2 mile, 200-foot-wide runway.
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.
