The days of the calendar are flipping by faster than the new C7 can sprint from 0-60mph. August is nearly upon which means that the Woodward Dream Cruise is right around the corner. Along with that comes all of the activities beforehand that makeup the annual Corvettes on Woodward fiesta. Once again, organizer Larry Courtney has assembled 3 full days Corvette goodness for participants.

Here’s your chance to buy a C2 Corvette with an unusual past and an unusual look.
The town of Colchester, Conn., says it is ready to get rid of its 1967 Corvette that was used for nearly 20 years as the police department’s DARE vehicle.
It appeared that the 2013 Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s was going to be rained out on Sunday when Saturday’s storms prevented much of the event set up. Though rain was forecast, after only a brief shower the 374 exhibitors rushed to get their cars displayed on the beautiful but wet fairways of the golf course. Though the temperatures were unusually cool, the rain held off except for a short sprinkle around noon and the wet weather didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of the car owners or the 10,000 enthusiasts who braved the threatening skies and to view some of the finest cars in the country.
Storms and low-riding Corvettes don’t always mix.
Just ask the driver of this C5 Corvette, who talked to a reporter from WREG-TV in Memphis, Tennessee last week about his misadventures following a major storm that swept through the area.
Back in January at the North American International Auto Show, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was unveiled to much applause.
Well, the applause for the already highly praised seventh-generation Corvette might grow even louder at that show in January 2014.
That’s when the winners of the North American Car and Truck of the Year will be announced.
That’s NASCAR driver and team owner Tony Stewart behind the wheel of a Lime Rock Green 2014 Corvette Stingray. Road and Track magazine’s review of the new C7 Corvette features Stewart’s driving impressions of the new Corvette at GM’s proving grounds in Milford, as well as doing something he knows a lot about – burnouts!

There probably isn’t a much sicker feeling for a Corvette owner than the one a Hampton, Va., man suffered Monday night.
Larry Phlegar had celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Corvette by buying a collector’s edition 2003 model, a yellow coupe that he had driven just 9,723 miles over the past decade.
Yesterday we shared the instrumented testing data of the 2014 Corvette Stingray from Edmunds.com and now this morning we can also share Motor Trend’s test of the C7.
Motor Trend tested both a Z51 Stingray with a a 7-Speed manual at GM’s proving grounds, but they also had the opportunity to test a Z51 Stingray with an automatic transmission on public roads in Central California. So their review contains both performance estimates from their tests as well as the more subjective review from driving the Stingray on public streets.
Our friends at Corsa Performance and the Corvette Cleveland club are hosting their 11th Annual Corvettes at CORSA car show this Sunday, July 28th.

Steve Lane says he has never won anything in his life before, but all that changed on Sunday, July 14th when his name was drawn from 10,000 raffle tickets at the Saint Bernard Summer Social in Rockport, Indiana. His prize? A Horizon Blue 1960 Corvette Roadster valued at $70,000.
