This year they’ve revamped the program slightly and will hold all of the classes on Friday June 28th. Click past the break for a complete rundown of the classes available this year.
This year’s NCM Bash will offer Corvette enthusiasts a special excuse to head to Bowling Green for the annual event that traditionally offers the first in-person look at the new models.
So if you’re tired of just drooling over photos of the C7 on the Internet, here’s your first chance to get up close to real 2014 Corvette Stingray coupes and convertibles – plus have a chance to hear many members of the Chevrolet team who were behind this marvel of design and engineering.
The Bash, set for April 25-27, will help the museum kick off the 2013 event season.
Now that the calendar has officially flipped over to spring, it’s time to shift your Corvette shopping into high gear. Auctions America will be offering almost 40 Corvettes as part of their 550 car docket this weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Included in the bevy of available vehicles are a Motion Performance-built C3, a low mile 1978 Pace Car, and the very last Ron Fellows Z06.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray made its West Coast debut at the big 60th Anniversary Corvette Celebration at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles a couple of weekends ago, and there for the occasion were several Corvette notables, including designer Kirk Bennion.
Bennion took a few moments to talk with a reporter from the L.A. Times to discuss his efforts on what is just the seventh generation of the 60-year-old sports car.
It seems that where ever the 2014 Corvette Stingray goes, there’s an unveiling. Last weekend in the Corvette Corral tent at the 12 Hours of Sebring wasn’t any different.
With Corvette Chief Engineer beginning his discussion about the next generation car, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles and Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Dave Tatman pulled the cover off the Cyber Gray Corvette Stingray Coupe to a huge round of applause (and a few tears) from the enthusiasts in the crowd.
Sometimes it seems like every for sale ad you read has “low miles” written in it somewhere. That’s not the case with this 1971 Corvette coupe currently listed on Ebay. It’s spent the last 42 years with the same southern California owner and has logged a total of 522,000 miles since it was born. That’s basically the equivalent of a roundtrip visit to the moon.
The Corvette Team’s annual seminar to Corvette owners and enthusiasts at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring included a very special guest – the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe. Team Members Tadge Juechter, Harlan Charles and Bowling Green Assembly Plant Manager Dave Tatman each spoke about the new 7th Generation Corvette and then answered questions from the crowd.
If you like the looks of this C7-based Callaway AeroWagon, let the good folks there know as soon as possible, and you might just be able to drive one later this year.
Callaway Cars, based out of Old Lyme, Connecticut, has been making unique and very powerful Corvettes for more than 25 years. Their latest effort is a great one for the company – a shooting brake C7 Corvette.
Each year at the Detroit Autorama, first time shown custom cars of all makes and models complete for the prestigious Ridler award. As the top selections are whittled down, the best 8 cars are selected as the “Great 8″. From that octet the Ridler award is then chosen. For the 2nd time in 3 years, a Corvette was part of the Great 8. This time it was the stunning C2/SS built by Greening Auto Company.
When the 2014 Corvette Stingray hits the market later this year, it won’t really be a product of just Chevrolet and General Motors.
In the background will be numerous companies providing their expertise in certain areas to help make the Stingray the best car it can be.
One of those companies is International Automotive Components (IAC), which will be playing a key role in the highly anticipated – and much improved – interior of the seventh generation Corvette.
