A woman’s brush with death has given a new purpose for her black 1974 Corvette.
Jennifer Barnett knew something just wasn’t right with her body last year. She found a large lump in her left breast in August 2013, and about a month later, doctors gave her the grim news – she had stage IV breast cancer that had apparently spread to her liver.

Ocean City Corvette Club held their annual Corvettes on the Boardwalk show in Ocean City, New Jersey on Sunday, September 21st. Many thanks to our friend Monica Mayer @ CU~Through The Lens who offered us the opportunity to share some photos from the show.

Autoblog just came out with a listing of vehicles that have the best torque-to-weight ratios, broken down according to price, and Chevy dominated the action.
Here’s another brief video of the Laguna Blue 2015 Corvette Z06 testing at the Nurburgring. Unconfirmed reports say this Corvette Z06 is rocking the ‘ring with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
What we do know is that the 650 hp Corvette Z06 makes some big sound as it flies around the track.
Hey, don’t blame the Corvette.
That’s our first reaction to a man getting locked inside a C6 after he climbed inside a 2007 Corvette coupe on sale at a Lynchburg, Va., car lot last week. (At least it wasn’t a convertible with the top down and the doors locked.)
We can understand if you are moving a little slower today as it’s the beginning of the work week. So here’s some motivation in the form of our weekly image gallery featuring 1963 to 1967 Corvettes that we affectionately refer to as Midyear Monday.
