[ACCIDENT] C6 Corvette Walks a Tight Rope in Tampa

We’ve heard of Corvette dragsters popping wheelies, but here’s something you definitely don’t see every day: a C6 Corvette resting at a 45-degree angle with its front bumper centered by a utility pole guy wire.

The unusual sight happened late Wednesday morning in Tampa, Fla., at Albany and Waters avenues near Armenia.

[VIDEO] Corvette Crashes During Street Race

by Keith Cornett on September 8, 2014

Via CorvetteVideos.TV

We know we’re guilty of sharing the occasional street racing video and its almost like a guilty pleasure of ours to hear those Corvettes revving up and driving hard after three beeps. We know its wrong, like checking out the latest leaked celebrity nude photos. It’s not like we go searching for them. They just seem to find us. But I digress…

Not every street race ends safely and it can be an educational experience to share the what happens when street racing goes bad story. To that end, we bring you this video that shows what can go wrong and how fast that wrong can come if you decide to street race your Corvette.

This street race starts out the same as most others do. Two high powered vehicles pace each other ready to have themselves a little speed contest. What’s different about this situation comes after both drivers mash the gas. The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 immediately breaks traction as the rear wheels spin free.

General Motors to Restore Three of the NCM Sinkhole Corvettes

Chevrolet and the National Corvette Museum have announced their game plan for restoration of three of the classic Corvettes damaged when they were swallowed by a sinkhole inside the museum in February.

Two of the cars – the 2009 Corvette ZR1 prototype nicknamed the “Blue Devil” and the 1-millionth Corvette produced (a 1992 white convertible) – will be repaired by Chevrolet, which will also pay for the restoration of the black 1962 Corvette to be overseen by the museum.

Transformers Customized 2006 Corvette a No Sale on eBay

Transformers Customized 2006 Corvette a No Sale on eBay

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.

The Corvette Vanity Plates at Corvettes at Carlisle 2014

No other show like Corvettes at Carlisle can bring together the eclectic mix of Corvettes and the vanity license plates that adorn them. We love walking row after row of Corvettes and checking out all the great plates that tell us so much about the owner.

Corvette Museum to Fill Sinkhole and Restore the SkyDome

Corvette Museum to Fill Sinkhole and Restore the SkyDome

Since the National Corvette Museum is a non-profit organization, the decision on what to do with the sinkhole in the Skydome ultimately came down to money.

After giving initial signs a few months ago that a portion of the sinkhole would remain as a tourist attraction, the museum’s board of directors voted Saturday instead to fill the hole and restore the building to its previous condition.

[VIDEO] The 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle Downtown Parade

Nothing like a Corvette parade to end a fantastic weekend at the Corvettes at Carlisle show. We thought the weather might keep many away but in the end turnout was good from Corvette owners who drove from the fairgrounds as well as Carlisle’s residents who line the streets to watch them.

The family of a Corvette driver shot and killed by police last year after an hour-long chase that was televised live will receive a $5 million settlement following a vote Wednesday by the Los Angeles City Council.

Two city council members voted against the settlement, saying they felt the city had a good chance of winning a lawsuit filed by the family of Brian Newt Beaird, 51.

Last December, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies began chasing Beaird in his Corvette in Cudahy after they suspected he was a drunk or reckless driver. When the chase reached the LA city limits, the LAPD took over as Beaird continued to drive erratically and at high speeds on freeways and surface streets in his C6 Corvette.

[Operation Air Flow] Episode 3: Dyno Time for our CORSA Exhaust and Intake Install

It’s time to button up Operation Air Flow. In Episode 1 we installed a CORSA carbon fiber intake on our 2009 Corvette coupe with the help of our friends at Smokey’s Dyno and Performance. Then in Episode 2 they helped us bolt on a CORSA Sport performance exhaust system. Prior to each episode we ran our C6 on the dyno at Smokey’s so we could compare the stock horsepower and torque numbers to those after each component was installed. Now it’s time to share the results.
