During the media preview at the New York Auto Show last week, we caught an interview with Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles. Harlan was talking with a Russian video news agency known as RuptlyTV and during the conversation, he made it known that for the first time ever, Corvettes will officially be sold in Russia.

The Corvette world continues to make lemonade out of lemons.
When a 40th Anniversary Corvette became one of the sinkhole victims at the National Corvette Museum back in February, the tragedy really hit home for one enthusiast named Lynda Patterson.
You see, she and her husband, Mike, owned a 1993 Ruby Red anniversary model just like the one that was swallowed up by the earth.
Here’s a story that should make you proud you drive a Corvette – and a story that should make you appreciate every minute you get to climb behind the wheel of your pride and joy.
Not everyone is so fortunate.
After seeing the condition of the first Corvette to fall into the National Corvette Museum’s Sinkhole and the last one out, it’s pretty hard to be excited about the retrieval of the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette. But the final Corvette is now out and that marks the completion of “Operation Corvette Plus” which is what the workers dubbed the rescue of the “Great 8″ Corvettes that fell into the 40-ft sinkhole on February 12th.
Members of Bowling Green’s United Auto Workers Local 2164 voted overwhelming to authorize a strike if their concerns over safety and quality aren’t addressed by General Motors and plant management. UAW chapter President Eldon Renaud said the vote passed with 93.3% approval.
If there’s ever been a car that represents the red, white, and blue American ideal, it’s got to be the Chevrolet Corvette.
No wonder, then, that the totally new 2014 Corvette Stingray rumbled to the top of a special ranking of the “most American” vehicles compiled recently by a Washington, D.C., university.
On Thursday at the National Corvette Museum, workers lifted the seventh of eight Corvettes lost in the sinkhole back to solid ground. The recovered Corvette was the 2009 1.5 Millionth car and was only discovered last week after workers vacuumed enough dirt out of the hole to reveal its location.
An excuse for us to finally post these awesome gifs!
This morning, workers at the National Corvette Museum were able to rescue the one of a kind black Corvette ZR-1 Spyder from the massive sinkhole inside the Skydome. The Corvette was retrieved with the crane and sat on a flatbed where it was wheeled around to the other side of the museum. There, it was unloaded and put back into the museum next to the other five Corvettes that were previously rescued from the sinkhole.
Last week at the National Corvette Museum, workers repairing the sinkhole began vacuuming the dirt inside the hole where they thought two of the three remaining Corvettes were resting. On Friday, the NCM posted a new photo of what they are saying is the edge of the hood from the 2009 1.5 Millionth milestone car.
