It’s the weekend before Turkey Day which means that it’s time for the annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN).

After a week of teases Chevrolet took the wraps off the new Chaparral 2X Vision GT (VGT) Concept yesterday at the LA Auto Show. The futuristic Vision GT Concept, which was made for the PlayStation 3 game Gran Tursimo 6, is inspired by the Chevrolet’s collaboration with Chaparral which goes back more than 45 years.
It’s not every day that someone gets to ride in a high-performance sports car like a 2014 Corvette Stingray.

What we do know for sure, though, is that Chevrolet will be unveiling its Corvette Vision GT Concept on Nov. 19 as the newest member of the highly popular Gran Turismo PlayStation game.
One of the custom Corvettes we were anxious to see in person at the SEMA show comes from a new player in the Corvette aftermarket. Revorix is a new company that has deep roots in Japan and now they have set their sights on America. For the SEMA Show, they brought a 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible to showcase their new product line of functional aerodynamic parts for America’s favorite sports car.
Maybe the “Cake Boss” should stick to drinking non-alcoholic eggnog.
The 37-year-old star of the TLC reality TV show faces charges of driving while intoxicated and driving with impaired ability after cops saw him driving erratically along the streets of New York City in his 2014 Corvette Stingray around 1 a.m. Thursday.
Each year in early November the automotive aftermarket heads to Las Vegas to show off all of their newest wares. While we’re still recovering from last week’s show out in Vegas we want to hear from our readers. Of the scads of custom Corvettes out in the desert last week what was your favorite?
