We told you a few weeks ago about a one-of-a-kind 1965 Corvette Sting Ray that has been on the track since it was born – and in the same family for more than 30 years. Brian Hobaugh will again be aiming for the top prize with his family’s Corvette in the OPTIMA Batteries Ultimate Street Car Invitational 2013 on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. (PST) in Pahrump, Nev.
The new Corvette Stingray is one of those cars that is just begging for customization that takes an already great car to even higher levels.
One such treatment comes to us courtesy of Michigan-based TZD, which has named it the P58 Concept.
For some, the lure of owning a Corvette is sometimes taken to extremes.
Take this 2011 Corvette Grand Sport for example.
The car must have made one heck of an impression on someone as it was stolen from a Canadian car dealer last week by being driven through a glass window.
Corvettes are known for their power.
This black 1974 Corvette is known now for its ability to knock out the power to nearly 700 customers after it collided with a utility pole over the weekend.
Now that the 2013 ALMS race season is in the history books (along with the ALMS series itself), attention is turning to the combined United Sports Car Racing Series which will kick off in January at the Rolex Daytona 24 hour race. Corvette Racing will be featuring the racing debut of the C7.R and thanks to our friends over at MotorAuthority.com, we may have a first look at the new racing livery the 7th generation race cars will be wearing.
A Thursday afternoon crash of a classic C2 Corvette into a tree left an unidentified man in serious condition in Lunenberg, Mass.
The man apparently veered off the road in a red 1960 Corvette, striking a tree on Lancaster Avenue.
In 1970, Cliff Gottlob and Jack Blatchford drove a 1967 Corvette to Daytona Beach, Fla., where Gottlob and David Dooley teamed up to drive the L88-powered ‘Vette to second place in a 24-hour endurance test.
Now, 43 years later, Blatchford drove the same car onto the lawn of the 18th fairway at the prestigious Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Once again our friends at ProTeam Corvette Sales will be hosting a NCRS Technical Seminar. This year’s event is coming up on November 9th and the main topic is “How Chevrolet’s Relentless Pursuit of HP Benefited Corvette”. The all-day session is co-sponsored by the Michigan and Heart of Ohio chapters of the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS). NCRS membership isn’t required to attend and the cost is just $20 at the door. That admission fee also includes breakfast and lunch.
The new Corvette Stingray has been earning accolades from the press ever since it was unveiled earlier this year.
It’s only natural that the General Motors Assembly Plant in Bowling Green where America’s Sports Car has been built since 1981 would share in that glory, too.
Earlier this month the Bowling Green Assembly Plant was named Manufacturer of the Year by the Kentucky Association for Manufacturers (KAM) at the 2013 KAM Manufacturer and Employee of the Year Awards ceremony.
