[VIDEO] Watch the Corvette Z06's Fuel Gauge Drop During a 185 MPH Top Speed Run

My 16-year-old son Chris just got a GMC Sierra pickup as his first vehicle.

Boy, how he loves that truck, but we like to joke that it gets nearly 8 gallons to the mile. It’s not quite that bad, but when Chris pulls into a gas station, the attendants give us a standing ovation. I think we’re singlehandedly responsible for half of Racetrac’s profit margin last quarter.

That’s one reason we can sympathize with John Hennessey as the supertuner floors this 2015 Corvette Z06 with the new 8-speed automatic transmission to get a baseline performance reading on what she’ll do before he performs his magic under the hood.

[VIDEO] Original 1963 Corvette Grand Sport Driven at the Simeone Museum

How many times have you seen a photo of one of the five 1963 Corvette Grand Sports?

But how many times have you actually heard the sound of that awesome 427 engine roaring through the gears on a road and producing between 500 and 600 horsepower?

Too many times it seems that a car’s life is basically over once it reaches a museum, where it just sits there and is admired by enthusiasts, but that’s not the case at the Simeone Museum in Philadelphia.

[PICS] Shock and Awe: Arctic White Corvette Z06 on Polished Aluminum ADV.1 Wheels

Back in February we shared photos of a Torch Red Corvette Z06 with ADV10 Track Spec Matte Black Wheels. The end result in our opinion was that just by changing the wheels, a great looking 650 hp super car looks even better with the slightly different stance generated from the larger concave black wheels.

But the black wheel look isn’t for everyone and to show how much wheels can change the look of a car, check out these pics of a new Arctic White Corvette Z06 wearing ADV 7.0 Track Spec SL wheels in polished aluminum.

[VIDEO] North Texas Viper Club Blows Up a C4 Corvette with Tannerite and a .50 Caliber Machine Gun

Every year at Thanksgiving, we go up to our ancestorial stomping grounds in Southeastern Kentucky for family, food and fun. And sometimes that fun involves blowing up a pumpkin with tannerite, an explosive substance that ignites when shot with a gun.

So when I saw the North Texas Viper club using tannerite to blow up a C4 Corvette, I had to share this even if it involves the death of Corvette at the hands of a rival club. Just a couple ounces of tannerite will completely blow the kingdom come out of a pumpkin so I can only imagine what a larger amount could do to America’s favorite sports car.

[VIDEO] 1965 Cut-Away Corvette Autorama Display Could Fetch Over $1 million at RM's Texas Sale

Back in 2007 when this blog was still in its infancy, we attended one of our first live auctions as an official Corvette Blogger to cover some of the really cool Corvettes offered for sale. Hosted by RM Auctions, the December 2007 sale of the Al Wiseman Collection contained several prominent Corvettes including Zora Arkus-Duntov’s Harvest Gold 1955 Corvette Roadster.

But the real star of the auction, other than Val Kilmer’s Batmobile from Batman Forever, was a unique 1965 cut-away Corvette display created by General Motors to show off the inner-workings of the Corvette Sting Ray at its annual auto shows.

[PICS] Corvette Vanity Plates from the 12 Hours of Sebring Corvette Corral

One of the great things you can do as a Corvette owner is to support the factory Corvette C7.Rs by going to one of the TUDOR United Sports Car races held around the Country. And Chevrolet makes it real easy to go by sponsoring a Corvette Corral at select races where owners can safely park their cars, listen to seminars from Doug Fehan, Harlan Charles and Ron Fellows as well as enjoy the camaraderie that we share with other Corvette owners.

Arriving this weekend at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, we were amazed to see a record number of attendees who parked their cars in the Corvette Corral. From C1s to C7 Z06s, there was a little something for everyone parked under the bright Florida sun.

[VIDEO] Hennessey Puts the 2015 Corvette Z06 with a 7-Speed Manual on the Dyno

Hennessey Performance Engineering recently decided to find out how much the 2015 Z06 convertible’s engine loses between crank horsepower and rear wheel horsepower.

According to their dyno figures, the Z06, with the standard 7-speed transmission, produced 570 RWHP, down 12.4 percent from the crank figure of 650 HP. No word on the decline in torque, but based on other tests, we’d figure that number is virtually identical to the RWHP, in other words, 570 ft-lbs.
