Here’s your chance to buy a C2 Corvette with an unusual past and an unusual look.
The town of Colchester, Conn., says it is ready to get rid of its 1967 Corvette that was used for nearly 20 years as the police department’s DARE vehicle.
Autoweek was among the group of publications that recently took part in the 2014 Corvette Stingray drive experience held at the Milford Proving Grounds. Their review of the Stingray was published last week and is very favorable to the Stingray. Now we have the video from Autoweek showing many of the on-track exercises they were able to put the Corvette Stingray through.
Check out this in-depth interview on Trackdown on Shakedown with the always well-spoken Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan, who discusses with his old friend Leo Parente a wide range of subjects, including the 2014 United Sports Car Racing (USCR) series racing at Le Mans, Corvette marketing, and the ingredients for a successful Corvette Racing driver.
Storms and low-riding Corvettes don’t always mix.
Just ask the driver of this C5 Corvette, who talked to a reporter from WREG-TV in Memphis, Tennessee last week about his misadventures following a major storm that swept through the area.
One of the best videos we’ve seen from the 2014 Corvette Stingray reviews is this one from Edmunds.com:
Follow the Edmunds.com team as we travel to Michigan for 48 hours with the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. We drive the new C7 on the track at GM’s proving grounds, do instrumented track testing including 0-60 and the quarter mile, put it on a lift for a suspension walk-around and explore the wilds of Detroit during a photo shoot. Oh, and the requisite burn out.

There probably isn’t a much sicker feeling for a Corvette owner than the one a Hampton, Va., man suffered Monday night.
Larry Phlegar had celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Corvette by buying a collector’s edition 2003 model, a yellow coupe that he had driven just 9,723 miles over the past decade.
Yesterday we shared the instrumented testing data of the 2014 Corvette Stingray from Edmunds.com and now this morning we can also share Motor Trend’s test of the C7.
Motor Trend tested both a Z51 Stingray with a a 7-Speed manual at GM’s proving grounds, but they also had the opportunity to test a Z51 Stingray with an automatic transmission on public roads in Central California. So their review contains both performance estimates from their tests as well as the more subjective review from driving the Stingray on public streets.

Steve Lane says he has never won anything in his life before, but all that changed on Sunday, July 14th when his name was drawn from 10,000 raffle tickets at the Saint Bernard Summer Social in Rockport, Indiana. His prize? A Horizon Blue 1960 Corvette Roadster valued at $70,000.
We heard the exhaust in person on a pair of Corvette Stingrays that were the hit of the Bash at the National Corvette Museum back in April and loved the beautiful – and very different – sounds emanating from both cars as they were driven out of the museum.
Now Autoblog.com has posted a video that shows three different sounds coming from the same Stingray, courtesy of the optional dual mode performance exhaust, available at a cost of $1,195.
