For the Woodward Dream Cruise, Chevy created the Corvette Time Line to honor the significant milestones during Corvette’s 60 years of production. Here is a video of Corvette’s Product Marketing Manager Harlan Charles on Woodward talking about the milestones that occurred during Corvette’s first generation – 1953 to 1962.
Our friends at Jalopnik have really proved themselves to be the go-to website when it comes to breaking news on the next generation 2014 C7 Corvette. They created the first renders of the C7 last November and since then, all the spy photos and leaked supplier videos have pretty much confirmed that the new Corvette will look like Jalopnik said it would.
Last month, Trinity Animation used the Jalopnik renderings as well as other corroborating evidence to create an animated video of the C7 Corvette and now Jalopnik is sharing Trinity’s latest rendering of the C7 Corvette in stunning black. As the headline suggest, yes, this photo will make you fall in love with the 2014 Chevy Corvette.
We’ve closed the hood on yet another Corvettes at Carlisle show weekend. The 31st annual event was held last weekend at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Carlisle, PA. After a shortened event last year due to Hurricane Irene, we were glad to see this show back firing on all cylinders. Great weather nearly all weekend provided the perfect backdrop on one of the best Carlisle shows yet.
Members of General Motor’s Corvette Team once again came to Carlisle, PA for the annual Corvettes at Carlisle Show and gave their annual “What’s New with Corvette” seminar.
Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter started off with the walk-around before turning it over to Dave Tatman, the Corvette Assembly Plant Manager. Also talking 2013 Corvettes were Harlan Charles, Corvette’s Product Marketing Manager and Kirk Bennion, Corvette’s Exterior Design Engineer. The Seminar took just a little more than 20 minutes to cover the latest and final Corvette models of the C6 era but it was well worth it and very informative to all those that were there.
After working this weekend to ensure that Corvettes at Carlisle, one of the largest Corvette shows in the country, went off successfully without a hitch, Carlisle Event’s co-owner Lance Miller is now responding to Dan Mathis Jr’s claims that his family is the owner of the #1 1960 Briggs Cunningham Corvette that ran at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Miller emailed CorvetteBlogger.com a copy of the letter he sent to New York Times writer Jerry Garrett who has covered the saga of the former race car’s ownership dispute on his Garrett on the Road blog from the beginning.
One of the highlights of the annual Corvettes at Carlisle show is the burnout contest held on Friday afternoon. After a long day at looking at beautiful Corvettes parked across the Corvette America FunField, it seems owners love to have a seat in the grandstands and watch someone absolutely thrash their car in a brutal test of man and machine.
Stepping up to the plate and winning the King of Hill contest was John Marshall and his highly modified 1972 Corvette Coupe. When a man thanks his “crew chief”, you know he’s a serious contender.
It’s been a busy couple of week with the Woodward Dream Cruise and Corvettes at Carlisle running on consecutive weekends. We finally got a chance to catch our breath and now we’ve got some really cool Corvette photo galleries coming from each event. But before we move on to Carlisle, let’s wrap up the 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise.
We and about 1.5 million of our closest friends converged on historic M-1 in metro Detroit to celebrate all things car and transportation related. Of course, the Corvettes were our favorite rides of the week so click past the jump to view our gallery of Corvettes from the 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise.
The saga surrounding the #1 Briggs Cunningham Corvette that raced at the 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans took another surprising turn over the weekend after its planned public unveiling Friday at Corvettes at Carlisle was abruptly canceled due to undisclosed security concerns. We have now learned that a Florida resident is claiming that the Corvette belonged to his father and says it was stolen from their backyard in 1976.
The public reveal of the #1 1960 Briggs Cunningham Corvette racer Friday afternoon at the Corvettes at Carlisle show in Carlisle, PA. was canceled due to security concerns. A statement from Lance Miller was read to the crowd who gathered at the grandstand to witness the unveiling of the former Le Mans Corvette, which had just been found after being lost for 50 years.
Last month, one of the lingering automotive mysteries surrounding Corvette’s first campaign at the 24 Hours of Le Mans was solved. Of course we’re talking about the finding of the Briggs Cunningham 1960 #1 Le Mans Corvette racer which has been lost for 50 years. On Thursday evening with a crowd of Corvette illuminaries and enthusiasts, the former race car was revealed.
