We’ve been a follower of ChevroletEurope on Twitter for some time now but really started paying attention earlier this year when the Corvette Stingray made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show. CorvetteEurope recently tweeted that the C7 Corvette was getting ready to start testing in Europe and the good news is that you can go along for the ride.
Here’s another great photo gallery from our friends at D2FORGED showing their custom wheels on a C5 Corvette. Back in May we shared a C5 Convertible Widebody riding on D2FORGED CV2 colormatched wheels and now they’ve supplied us with pics of the red C5 Corvette which is sitting tight on a set of FMS05 Wheels.
Some people have had car collecting in their blood ever since they can remember. Howard Weaver of Ann Arbor, Michigan is one of those people.
In fact, after 77 years of doing so, Weaver has probably been collecting cars maybe longer than anybody in the United States. A little qualifier on that status: Weaver’s dad actually is the one who paid $50 for a 1931 American Austin in 1936 when little Howard was just 6 years old. That two-passenger coupe later became Howard’s first car, and he still has it along with many other outstanding vehicles in a series of four heated barns on his property. That car was the impetus for a lifetime of collecting cars.
Our friends at Hartland Auctions are hosting their first ever National Corvette Museum Auction this weekend in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Hartland expects about 300 cars for their inaugural event at the NCM. As we create this wonderful prose there are 50 Corvettes poised to cross the auction block as part of the 2 day docket which runs Saturday and Sunday June 13th and 14th.
It was only last month that we found out that there was another installment of Michael Bay’s Transformers in the making with a whole new fleet of cars including the 2014 Corvette Stingray.
The Green and Black “Race Inspired” 2014 Corvette Stingray was spotted on the Transformers 4 set somewhere around Adrian, Michigan.
Like it has for so many fans of the Corvette since 1953, sometimes reality has to come roaring to the forefront.
Take Charlie Snook, for example.
He was recently chosen as the winner of the Stafford Fire Department’s 30th annual Corvette raffle in New York.
With only 300 Corvettes made in the first year of production in 1953, not many of these historic treasures ever cross the auction block in a single year.
But this weekend could be your chance to own one as the 254th Corvette ever made will be up for auction at the first-ever Hartland Auctions sale at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky.
