And then there was…no light?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said this week that it is expanding its probe into complaints that low-beam headlights have suddenly quit working on some C6 Corvettes.
The investigation started in May after NHTSA received 30 reports that both low-beam headlights stopped operating at night without warning.
One of the highlights of Corvettes at Carlisle is the Saturday evening parade where hundreds of Corvettes make their way from the fairgrounds to downtown Carlisle. Leading the parade was Bill Miller in a classic C1 Convertible while Lance Miller was driving his 2012 Carlisle Blue Corvette ZR1.
Behind them was the GM / Corvette Team reps all driving the new 2014 Corvette Stingrays.

Well, if you’ve been thinking about hopping up your C6 and wondered if the chassis could handle more horsepower, then look no further than the amazing Laraki Motors Epitome Concept that wowed the crowds at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance last weekend.
If you’re rich enough, you can build a car and then name it after yourself, which is apparently what Abdesslam Laraki, a yachting industry mogul, did.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a Rossi 66 sighting, but here is a Pearl White Rossi 66 cruising Woodward Blvd in Detroit during August 2013′s DreamCruise.
Although the concept for the Rossi appeared first back in 2008, it took another two years for an actual car to be built. We believe this is the same Rossi 66 (or SixtySix) that made its debut at the EyesOn Design benefit in Detroit during the summer of 2010.

While the largest one day automotive event in the country was taking place on Woodward Avenue in the suburbs of Detroit, an equally impressive event was taking place sixty miles to the north in Flint, Michigan, a city rich in automotive history.
The spectacular Back to the Bricks car show and the Corvette Reunion welcomed a huge throng of automobile enthusiasts, including Mark Reuss, President of General Motors of North America. Reuss was one of the featured speakers at the unveiling of a bronze statue honoring William “Billy” Durant, founder of General Motors. Durant’s statue will join David Buick and Louis Chevrolet on the brick plaza of downtown Flint. Most of downtown Flint was closed to accommodate the thousands of cars and crowd of spectators, estimated at over a half million, along the streets of the historic city.
The Woodward Dream Cruise is billed as the largest one-day car event in the world. Each year on the third Saturday in August about 1.5 million people and 40,000 or so collector cars descend on historic Woodward Avenue in metro Detroit. It’s the pinnacle of the annual automotive week of ecstasy we told you about a couple weeks ago.
If you love historically significant Corvette racecars, it doesn’t get much better than the collection of six very rare cars that will be on display at the 2013 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Aug. 16-18.
We all know Chevy takes the lessons it learns from racing and transfers that knowledge to the production cars. To illustrate that point, each of the six classic racers will be shown with its street counterpart from the same timeframe.
