Vettes in the News
The Friday Poll is back!
After a great response last week it’s time to survey the CorvetteBlogger Nation again to get your opinions on various Corvette topics. Since this is Monterey week, home of the highest of high end car events – including auctions, we want to know what’s going in your fantasy garage based on a given budget.
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’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.
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.
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.
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.
