Last weekend we made a run down to CORSA Performance’s corporate headquarters in Berea, Ohio to take in their 12th annual Corvettes at CORSA show. Rain threatened, but never materialized which made for a dry, yet hot and muggy Midwestern summer day for roughly 250 Corvette owners. Read on to see more from this year’s show.
We are less than three weeks away from one of the most exciting weeks of Corvette fun in the country and if you haven’t made plans yet to be in Michigan the week of August 10th through the 16th then you may not be aware of all the Corvette activities that go on there in conjunction with the world famous Woodward Dream Cruise and the outstanding Back to the Bricks® car show.
What happens in Michigan the second and third weeks of August is virtually a fantasy of automotive nirvana. Though any car enthusiast worth their engine oil has heard about Detroit’s Woodward Dream Cruise and Flint’s Back to the Bricks show, surprisingly some Corvette enthusiasts do not realize the acclaimed Corvette specific events that are a part of both of these outstanding activities.
What Top Gear magazine once called the fastest police car in America apparently will remain the property of the Wake County Sheriff’s Office in Raleigh, N.C., for the foreseeable future.
The sheriff’s office has been using the black 2007 Corvette Z06 for the past five years after seizing it from a drug dealer convicted of felony schedule II possession.
It’s the last Friday in July which means its “Black Friday” here at CorvetteBlogger.com. Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 30 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
Who says the news is always bad?
For a Corvette enthusiast in Calgary, Canada, what started as a sad story wound up having a very happy ending.
We asked you a few days ago to be on the lookout for a red on red 1962 Corvette convertible that was stolen July 13 from a parking lot near Kenneth Jelley’s apartment.
The new 650-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 monster engine that will power the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06 will be assembled in two locations.
But only the engines that are put together at the Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Ky., will be eligible for the build-your-own program, according to a report on Edmunds.com.
Some people say locks just keep honest people out.
The 73-year-old owner of a red 1962 Corvette convertible wouldn’t argue with that.
Kenneth Jelley’s classic ‘Vette was locked, covered with a tarp, and parked outside in its parking space in the 9600 block of Bonaventure Drive SE, Calgary, Canada.
If you found a tattered classic car in a barn, would you leave it like it is or restore it to like-new condition?
Both options obviously have their pluses and minuses.
Today, we hear from someone who is happy he chose the first option.
Each year the Corvette Reunion, held in conjunction with the Back to the Bricks car show in downtown Flint, Michigan, continues to attract more and more Corvettes from all across the country and this year plans have been made to accommodate 800 Corvettes, up about 150 over last year’s numbers.
In 2013 Corvettes showed up from as far away as Hawaii and included every generation plus hundreds of restomods and custom Corvettes. Officially this is the fifth anniversary of the event and will take place on Friday night, August 15th and Saturday, August 16th.
