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.
It’s sort of fun to sit back and watch two of our sponsors here at CorvetteBlogger get together to offer a special gift for new Corvette owners.
We learned back at Corvettes at Carlisle that CorvetteFurman.com’s Mike Furman will be offering samples of Adam’s Polishes when he delivers Corvettes to new owners. Now that the packaging is complete, we get our first chance to check out the goods.
As Adam’s is the official detailing product of the Chevrolet Corvette, the four-pack of Adam’s Polishes includes the essentials to get any new Corvette owner started. The kit contains Adam’s Car Shampoo, Detail Spray, VRT (Vinyl, Rubber and Tire Dressing) and the Total Interior Detailer.
Adam Pitale and Mike Furman discussed the new partnership in this video from 2014′s Corvettes at Carlisle.
The Adam’s detailing sample kit is just another example of how Mike Furman goes to the extra mile for his customers.
If you thinking about ordering a new Corvette Stingray, Z06 or any of the offerings from Callaway, it’s worth your time to give Mike Furman a call. He can deliver the Corvette locally at Criswell Chevrolet in Gaithersburg, MD, to the National Corvette Museum for an R8C Delivery, or to you directly via covered transport. You can find him at CorvetteFurman.com or call his direct line at 301-212-4420.

Germany’s famous Nurburging. 13 miles of ups, downs, twists, and turns affectionately referred to as the Green Hell. Over the last decade automakers have used ‘Ring lap times as a means to define the performance of their latest creations. Back in 2011 Corvette test driver Jim Mero lapped the Nordschleife (“North Course”) in 7:19.63 in a C6 ZR1. But what will the new 2015 Z06′s lap time be?
We’ve always thought the seventh-generation Corvette Stingray looked like a Batmobile.
Now we know one reason why.
General Motors says remnants of an adhesive used to join body panels of the 2015 Stingray can be reused to help save an embattled bat species in North America.

We told you a few weeks ago about the 2014 Corvette Stingray’s performance in Car and Driver’s 2014 Lightning Lap competition.
But now you can actually see a video that offers a sweet look at what it’s like to ride in the passenger seat of the hot new Stingray.
Simply put, the sound of the Corvette’s 6.2-liter V8 is music to our ears as it runs against the clock at Virginia International Raceway.
Some Corvette accidents are the result of driver error while others are caused by careless drivers. This Corvette appears to have been claimed by a mechanical failure. The driver of the red C6 Z06 walked away last week after his car lost the right rear wheel and rolled over in northern Pennsylvania.
While we were in Bowling Green in late August for the National Corvette Museum Corvette Caravan, my son Chris and I enjoyed touring the factory for probably the fifth or sixth time since 1997.
We didn’t realize it at the time, but we were actually watching some of the 2015 Stingrays being assembled that are now being recalled by Chevrolet for two separate problems.
For years, Corvette enthusiasts have been intrigued by the Peter Max Corvettes, that collection of 36 Corvettes owned by the pop art star who became famous in the 1960s.
The Corvettes, one each from 1953 through 1989, were the grand prize in a VH1 contest back in 1989, with a carpenter from Long Island chosen as the lucky winner.
