Sure we already seen pictures of the new blue color available for 2013 Corvettes, but to actually see the new Night Race Blue sparkle under the beautiful Bowling Green sunshine was a whole new experience.

Actually, this NSFW video is just about the worst thing you’ll ever seen. In hindsight, we can’t decide whether the Corvette is the video’s saving grace or the unfortunate victim of being owned by a gold chainer “Yo, Vinnie from the Bronx”.
If there is one aftermarket segment for Corvettes that really understands the importance of photography to its business, it’s the custom wheel market.

It may seem hard to believe, but C4 Corvettes are quickly turning into classics as the 84 model turns 28 this year.
