It looks like the Corvette Assembly Plant has been busy cranking out examples of the 2014 Corvette Stingrays because they are literally everywhere in Bowling Green this weekend for the Corvette Museum’s 60th Anniversary celebration. Check out our photo gallery of the Corvette Stingrays seen at the Museum and at the Assembly Plant from Thursday.
Some special “guests” will help Corvette celebrate its 60th anniversary at the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in August.
The reunion, set for August 16-18, will feature two and perhaps even three of the legendary Corvette Grand Sport models from the 1960s.

If Steve McCain was a fisherman, he’d have quite a few tales to tell about the big ones that got away – as well as the big ones he did manage to reel in. Fortunately for Corvette enthusiasts, McCain’s tales aren’t fishing-related – instead they have to do with some of the very first Corvettes ever made.
It’s the last full weekend in June which means one thing to Corvette enthusiasts – It’s Bloomington Gold weekend. That also means it’s time for the annual Mecum auction at Bloomington Gold. At last check there were just over 100 Corvettes consigned for this weekend’s sale in Champaign, Illinois. Mecum Bloomington Gold will take place this Saturday, June 29th on the Assembly Hall grounds on the University of Illinois campus as part of the Bloomington Gold Corvette show.
Sometimes just getting to a car show can be more difficult than winning.
Take, for example, this case of a truck carrying four Corvettes to the Bloomington Gold show in Champaign, Illinois.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray has only been out for a number of months now. While its been shown exclusively by Chevrolet at select events, that hasn’t stopped tuners from letting their imaginations run wild with future plans to mod the seventh gen sports car.
South Florida based tuner Redline Motorsports has recently announced their plans to upgrade the new Corvette Stingray’s body and LT1 power plant with a package of enhancements they are calling the Adrenaline Rush C7 package.
