Technically, this Corvette is more of a field find than a barn find. The early C3 Corvette with 55 gallon drums masquerading as rear fender flares was spotted on JalopyJournal.com. The Corvette, along with several other older Chevrolets and few trucks, have been parked out in the woods somewhere in Georgia for decades.
General Motors has issued a recall of 22,090 Corvettes made between 2005-2007. At issue is the adhesive between the roof panel and the frame which may cause the panel to detach from the vehicle. Dubbed the FRC (Flying Roof Club) by Corvette owners, this is the second recall regarding the early C6 removable roofs.
Someone’s Corvette dream turned into a nightmare last week as the Pahrump Valley Fire Department was called to put out an engine fire in a 1985 Corvette.
I came across a couple of videos of this C5 Corvette by Spanish Tuner Maro and I am really intrigued by several of the features. The first video shows the front which has a grille similar to the Corvette Stingray Concept. The back has been completly reworked as well and just screams Italian. Check out the short videos and let me know what you think!
This video is wrong on so many levels that I don’t know where to begin. I’d wager that most of us (me included) have done something stupid in our Corvettes. But to then have your moment of stupidity uploaded to youtube for all posterity is a badge of shame I’d wish on no one.
In October, we posted a video claiming to show the fastest quarter mile time set for a bone-stock Corvette ZR1. That run of 10.851 @ 129.89 MPH was just eclipsed last week by Corvette Forum member “blownlt1&c6z” who ran 10.74 @ 133.21 mph in his bone-stock (including tires) 2009 Corvette ZR1. Both these runs happened at the same track – Maryland International Raceway.
According to Kelley Blue Book, Chevrolet’s Corvette is one of 2010′s top 10 vehicles for having the best resale value. The survey recognizes those vehicles based on their projected retained value five years from now.
This Wixom walk-through video was released in late November on Chevrolet’s YouTube channel. Master Engine Builder Don Henley takes us through the various stages and quality checks as a 638-hp LS9 is assembled. For us, the real magic comes when we see the interaction these builders have with Corvette owners.
I don’t refer to many Corvettes as “wicked” but I was flipping through eBay’s Corvette listings tonight and this serious-looking 1963 Corvette Grand Sport recreation caught my eye. Painted Silver with a Black stripe, the Grand Sport’s coupe body just rocks. Under the hood rocks too with a Chevrolet 464 crate engine mated to a 6-speed transmission.
