On Wednesday we participated in yet another edition of the annual Corvettes on Woodward charity food drive. Hundreds of Corvettes gathered to support the Open Hands Food Pantry in Royal Oak, MI. Each year the get together takes place on the Wednesday night prior to the Woodward Dream Cruise and has developed into the main event in what is now a 3-day celebration of Corvette and cars in general.
Although the annual Woodward Dream Cruise doesn’t officially start until Saturday, that hasn’t stopped Corvette fans from hitting the historic avenue a bit early.
Detroit’s Fox 2 reporter Amy Andrews interviewed Indy car driver and this year’s winner of the Detroit Grand Prix Helio Castroneves, who was driving an Arctic White 2014 Corvette Stingray with black racing stripes down Woodward Avenue this morning at 7:30 am.
It was rocking year for the 2014 Corvette Stingray and now it has come to an end.
Production of the 2014 Model Year Corvette officially ended on Friday, August 8th and its the 2015 Corvette Stingray that is now heading down the assembly line in Bowling Green.
Who knows? Perhaps one of the college students who recently took part in a unique learning experience at the Corvette Assembly Plant will come back one day and help General Motors design its C8 or C9 Corvette.
The aspiring engineers – members of the National Society of Black Engineers – belong to three chapters of NSBE at University of Tennessee-Knoxville, University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign, and University of Pittsburgh.
It’s very sad that someone who works hard and enjoys nice things can’t have them because people are jerks.
Renee Hughes of Hoover, Alabama found that out when she woke up Friday morning to find that her Black 2014 Corvette Stingray had been vandalized by someone who poured paint stripping gel all over her new car.
We wondered when Top Gear’s British pontificator Jeremy Clarkson would give his low-down on the new Corvette Stingray.
Well, we don’t have to wait any longer, and believe it or not, Mr. Clarkson speaks very highly of Chevrolet’s latest creation from across the ocean.
“I’m going to make no bones about this,” he writes. “I drove the Stingray to, and then round, the Top Gear test track the other day, and while I admit that a clear blue sky can make any drophead seem acceptable, I absolutely loved it.”
That tremor you felt in the force last week as millions of people suddenly cried out and then were silenced wasn’t the result of some interplanetary conflict. No, that collective gasp heard online was the unveiling of a new Hot Wheel’s Darth Vader show car at San Diego’s Comic-Con convention.
The Darth Vader car is the first in a new series of Star Wars character cars from Hot Wheels available this October.
The good news is police found a red 2003 Corvette that was stolen in Moses Lake, Washington last Thursday morning.
The bad news is by that time, the alleged thief had crashed the car through a fence and into the back yard of a house in the 8800 block of Hillcrest Drive in Moses Lake.
