Maybe Chevrolet needs to rethink its partnership with the popular Manchester United soccer club.
Two years ago, the car manufacturer made a deal with the team, giving all the players their choice of any Chevy model, including the Corvette.
General Motors reported their October 2014 vehicle sales yesterday morning and it shows that 2,959 Corvettes were delivered during the month. According to the report, sales are down year to year by -24.7% but don’t think for a minute that sales of the Stingray are starting to cool. We’ll be back to explain in a moment.
For the Calendar Year to Date (January-October), Corvette sales total 28,909 vs the 11,759 sold during the same time period in 2013.
Chevrolet held a media reception Monday evening on the eve of the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas where the automaker unveiled some of the concepts and special edition vehicles that will be displayed at the show beginning on Tuesday.
Opening the event was the 2009 Corvette ZR1 Blue Devil that was recovered from the National Corvette Museum’s sinkhole. The Corvette was sent back to GM in September where it underwent repairs. Tonight that mighty LS9 roared to life once again as it became the first of Chevrolet’s SEMA vehicles to take the stage.

While most of us in the Corvette community don’t take our Corvettes for granted, they are always around as part of our families and, like the family dog or cat, we sometimes tend to forget how really special they are.
Not so for Jonathan “Randy” Williamson of Bluffton, Ohio. On the day before Halloween, there were no tricks played on Randy, only a very special treat—he got the chance to live out his dream of a ride in a Corvette convertible. Fifty-five-year-old Williamson has been on dialysis for over 20 years and lives in Richland Manor, a senior living healthcare campus community. His passions are cars and music, and one of his fondest bucket-list items was to take a ride in a Corvette.
On Saturday, November 8th our friends at ProTeam Corvette Sales will be hosting a Corvette Technical seminar along with the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS). This year’s topic will be Corvette’s Performance Evolution. The all-day seminar is open to both NCRS members and the general public. The $25 admission fee includes both breakfast and lunch.

It’s hard to look on the bright side when the owners of a 1991 fully restored Corvette are standing there, looking at the fire-ravaged remains of their pride and joy.
But for Chad and Carrie Wendel of Morristown, Minn., the fire that broke out last Thursday morning could have been much worse.
