Between the mid 1960s and the mid 1970s, if you wanted a Corvette, or any other Chevrolet product, that would absolutely kick butt at any drag strip in the country, Joel Rosen at Baldwin Motion was the man to see. Baldwin Motion was a combination of Joel Rosen’s Motion Performance and Baldwin Chevrolet, a small dealer on Long Island.
On this week’s webisode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the well-known Porsche affectionado opts for a classic 1956 Corvette in Cascade Green which he uses to pick up and drive around fellow comedian and host of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon.
Some say the best photoshops are those that are somewhat based in reality. The reality is that when you see this “Hennessey HPE2000 Corvette Stingray drag car” for the first time, you may think it’s real. After all, Hennessey Performance Engineering has made a name for themselves not only bring more and more horsepower to the Corvette Stingray, but also with their radical Venom GT program as well.
But alas, this is just a photoshop, “created for competition” says the note that goes along with the posting by RC82 WORKCHOP on Facebook.

As Corvette aficionados, we know that they are attention grabbers just about anywhere we go. But what about Hollywood—what grabs people’s attention in La-La land? For a celebrity known as the “Billboard Queen” and one who knows a thing or two about getting attention and self-promotion, it is a hot-pink C7 Corvette.
Angelyne is a Hollywood celebrity who is now best known for, well, being a Hollywood celebrity. When asked what exactly it was that she did, she answered, “Although I act, model, dance, paint, write and create magic, I’m most known for my persona, the essence of who I am.”
The owner of two original Granatelli turbine cars says it’s time for someone else to have fun with the vehicles.
That’s why Austin, Texas businessman Milton Verret says he is selling his record-breaking Indy 500 #70 Lotus 56-3 and a one-of-a-kind 1978 turbine-powered jet Corvette at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction being held Jan. 10-18, 2015.

When Kevin Helmintoller donated his 2001 Mallet Hammer Corvette Z06 to the National Corvette Museum in late 2013, never in a million years would he have believed that the car would be lost a few months later in a catastrophic accident. But on the morning of February 12th this year, the ground gave way under the Corvette Museum’s SkyDome and swallowed eight Corvettes, the first being Helmintoller’s donated Z06.

A man stopped on the side of I-71 North near Deerfield Township, Ohio is fighting for his life after he and his pickup truck were struck by a white 2015 Corvette Stingray on Friday morning.
Troopers said that Shawn Steinke, 47, of Lebanon, Ohio was checking on the load in his GMC Sierra on the berm of the interstate when the Corvette driver – 49-year-old Kevin Pong of South Lebanon, Ohio – lost control of his vehicle and struck the truck and Steinke, tossing him into the road where he was run over.
One of the features of the 2015 Corvette Stingray’s Performance Data Recorder is Valet Mode, a setting that records video and telemetry whenever the car is in operation. On Friday, a Corvette Forum member named dcowles may be the first to capture a valet entrusted with parking the Corvette behaving badly once the owner was out of sight.
