With the opening of the Los Angeles Auto Show to the public this Friday, Chevrolet released these photos showing the load-in crew putting the final touches on their display.
Last week two thirds of the CorvetteBlogger wolfpack was out in Las Vegas
wandering around the desert looking for strippers and cocaine at the annual SEMA show. The SEMA show is the banner event for the automotive aftermarket industry. This year 125,000+ attendees perused the latest wares from hundreds of suppliers. Countless custom rides become the show pieces to display the newest products and industry trends. SEMA is only open to members, buyers, vendors, and media. Don’t fret if you couldn’t be there as our Corvette photo gallery awaits you just beyond the Read More button below.
Behold the Concept7 which made its debut last week at SEMA. The Concept7 is latest creation from racer Jeff Nowicki and his newly minted Nowicki Autosport Design. The Concept7 takes a stock 2014 Corvette Stingray and mixes in a healthy dose carbon fiber and other mods to create the masterpiece that awaits you after the break.
The third time proved to be the charm for Brian Hobaugh.
Hobaugh had finished third in 2011 and moved up to second in 2012 (losing by just a point) with his 1973 Camaro in the OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car Invitational before finally pulling out a victory with his family’s 1965 Corvette in the sixth annual event held in Pahrump, Nev., on Saturday.
A few months ago, GM President Mark Reuss perked up the ears of Corvette enthusiasts when he said the idea of a production hybrid ‘Vette was “a very attractive idea.”
Well, Chevy has been beaten to the punch by a company named Quanta, which manufactures replacement parts like fuel tanks and radiators.
You either love it or hate it. That’s the consensus we’ve come to as there doesn’t seem to be much in-between when it comes to the Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingray shown at SEMA last week.
We admit that “Aston Martin Blue” exterior color is a little tough for us to go for too, but those curves are so cool! It’s a car that’s totally at home in the SEMA Dub Show and to see it live is to appreciate the look and the workmanship that went into the build. But I couldn’t imagine this as a daily driver.
Sometimes greatness comes from taking a small step. That’s how this stunning 1958 Corvette restomod from Legacy Innovations that we saw this week at the SEMA show came to be.
Chevrolet this week showed 2 other concept Corvette Stingrays at SEMA in Las Vegas. In addition to the Gran Turismo Corvette Stingray Concept we showed you Tuesday, they also showed off the Atlantic and Pacific concepts as well. The cars are intended to represent the differences styling between the left and right coasts of the U.S. We’ll take a look at the Pacific concept a little later, but for now click past the jump to check out our photo gallery and video walkaround of the Corvette Stingray Atlantic concept.
