Since we are halfway through 2014, we wanted to provide an update to the popular post we made after 1st Quarter 2014 regarding the Top dealers of the Chevrolet Corvette. For the calendar year starting in January and running through June 30, 2014, GM has reported a total of 17,744 Corvettes sold. The top Corvette dealers on this list account for 41.5% of those sales which total 7,370.
The official quarter mile time for the 2014 Corvette Stingray is 12 seconds at 118 mph. This bone stock C7 does it a little quicker.
100% bone stock C7 Vette going 11.70 @ 119 in the 1/4 mile… Foxbody Mustang makes a lot of noise and only runs a few tenths faster.

If you love the Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition, your last chance to win a Premiere Edition convertible is coming up on Thursday, July 10, 2014. The last 2014 Premiere Edition convertible built, Lime Rock Green with a Kalahari convertible top, will be raffled off by the National Corvette Museum.
While the 2014 Callaway Corvette won’t exceed the 650 horsepower of the 2015 Z06, Callaway engineers have nevertheless managed to bump their final figure to a very impressive 627 hp, up some 167 hp over the base Stingray.
Callaway Cars announced the figures this week after extensive vehicle testing and validation by its engineers, who also rated peak torque at 610 lb-ft at 4400 rpm, 145 lb-ft more than the stock LT1 produces.
We’ve all seen that famous video where a Corvette Z06 overtakes a car on the autobahn at 200 mph. It looks like these guys down in “Mexico” attempted to recreate the scene to see how a 200 mph fly-by from a Corvette ZR1 would look to another car doing the speed limit down the highway.
This 1968 L88 Corvette has come a long way since we first saw it as a fresh barn find in 2008.
The former psychedelic-painted racer was found in North Florida by our friends at ProTeam Corvette who rehabbed the street-raced L88 that was known locally as “Bounty Hunter”. Armed with a pedigree of awards, the Rally Red Convertible is headed to Mecum’s Monterey Auction in August where it will be offered for sale.
Paul Marseglia recently said goodbye to an old friend, the 1974 Corvette Stingray that he’s owned since it was new.
The Franklin, Mass., man donated his brown Corvette to the National Corvette Museum because he knew it would be treated with the same respect and love that he had shown it during the past 40 years.
This classic Corvette owner wins the internet today with this picture of him hauling a helicopter. Pretty sure if you look up the definition of “baller”, this would be the pic shown…
One of our favorite things to do at the major Corvette shows is to walk both the show grounds and parking lots to look at the fun, witty and personality-descriptive vanity license plates that are adorned on America’s favorite sports cars.
We maintain the theory that there are two types of vanity plates. The first type describes the car while the second type is more focused on the owner. Lucky for us, Bloomington Gold offers a target rich environment where both types are on display.
