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.
Vettes in the News
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.
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.

That noise you heard after the All-Star Game Tuesday night was the sound of young Corvette enthusiasts practicing on their hitting skills.
Who could blame them after the Most Valuable Player of this year’s game, the Angels’ Mike Trout, won a new Stingray for his outstanding performance?
Trout – who doubled, tripled, drove in two runs, and scored a run to lead the American League to a 5-3 win – actually had his choice of either a Stingray or a Silverado full-size pickup during the MVP award ceremony, but naturally the 22-year-old standout picked the latest rendition of Chevy’s popular sports car.

Production is ready to gear up, literally, for the slick new eight-speed transmission that will power some 2015 Corvettes, including the highly anticipated Z06.
GM expects to start building the high-tech automatic gearbox by the end of July, according to Ray Wood, president of United Auto Workers Local 14.
The leader of the UAW chapter that authorized a potential strike at the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant back in April has been fired by General Motors after 46 years as an employee.
Eldon Renaud, president of Bowling Green’s United Auto Workers Local 2164 for the past 32 years, had been leading the union’s recent concerns over safety and other issues at the Kentucky plant, where the highly popular seventh-generation Stingrays are being built.

If you’ve ever wondered what the inside of a C5 Corvette door looks like, here’s your chance.
This black Z06 was involved in a two-car collision in Canada a couple weeks ago. The crash sent the Corvette through the backyard of a Nepean home, leaving the front half of the car under the fence like a dog trying to dig his way under.
