We’ve talked about the Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingrays before because frankly, we think they’re cool. And while some other auto sites and Corvette traditionalists continue to bash these cars, we hold them up as great examples of the what can be done with a base Corvette Stingray when you have time, money and a vision.

The Corvette Stingray has been in production for roughly eight months now and we’re starting to see some owners and shops show off their custom work. One shop that is well known for their over-the-top designs and fabrications is West Coast Customs, who recently showed off a completed supercharged Corvette Stingray on their facebook page.
This Tangelo Orange 2014 Corvette Stingray was spotted at Cars and Coffee Irvine last weekend. It’s part of the special run of Forgiato widebody C7 Corvettes that were first shown at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

If the new Corvette Stingray isn’t quite distinctive enough for you, then you might want to check out the eBay auction going on right now for a Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingray, one of which was on display at SEMA in November.
We found a video today at www.forgiato.com that shows two of the distinctive “Aston Martin Blue” Forgiato Stingrays weaving their way down a city street. We’re not sure if the car for sale now is one of those or not.
Here’s another one of John Greenwood’s infamous Corvette Sport wagons. Part Corvette, part station wagon, it’s the ultimate sport utility vehicle. This yellow 1975 Corvette was recently pulled from a garage where it sat for 10 years and if you’re interested in becoming its next owner, you’ve now got less than one day to get in on this eBay deal before the sale closes on Tuesday afternoon.
There aren’t many names more familiar to the Corvette enthusiast than that of Ralph Eckler, founder of Eckler Corvette Parts, which has grown into one of the top suppliers of quality Corvette parts and accessories over the past 40 years.
Mr. Eckler is now retired from the company that bears his name, but that doesn’t mean his love for Corvettes has gone away.
Just the opposite. He’s now taken his enthusiasm for Corvettes to a new and exciting level with the introduction of his Ralph Eckler Signature Car Collection.

A boost from Hennessey Performance proved to be enough for a 2014 Corvette Stingray to crack the 200mph barrier for the first time on Dec. 11.
The Stingray had been upgraded with a Hennessey HPE600 system that boosts the car’s horsepower to 600 from the factory 460, as well as a Nitrous Express 100-hp nitrous oxide system.
