A torrential rain storm in Sullivan County New York last week sent a flash flood down Cattail Creek in the area known as Livingston Manor. In addition to taking out several bridges and causing residents to scramble for higher ground, the flood waters cut a new path under the garage of Ted Baer, sending his pristine 1991 Corvette down the creek.

We’ve all heard about kiddie rides at the fair.
Well, how about “kitty rides”?
We’ve found one of those stories that just begs for puns like that. Here’s another obvious one: This guy’s Corvette was really purring like a kitten. Or how about: Was she just “a cat on a hot tin (fiberglass?) hood”? Okay, okay, we’ll stop, but we couldn’t resist.
When I was in Detroit last month for the Woodward Dream Cruise, my personal Corvette story was told to a few GM’ers and it eventually made it way to Paul Manzella who runs the Faces of GM website.

When you’re one of the world’s best-known sports cars, people like to draw a line in the sand and dare you to cross it.

For the Woodward Dream Cruise, Chevy created the Corvette Time Line to honor the significant milestones during Corvette’s 60 years of production.

As a scorching Corvette ZR1 roars around a turn in the background, automobile expert Matt Farah of the Attack of the Show asks viewers on the Web if they’d like to drive that.
“I can’t but I’d sure as hell like to,” Farah says. “Today that’s what we’re gonna do.”
Members of General Motor’s Corvette Team once again came to Carlisle, PA for the annual Corvettes at Carlisle Show and gave their annual “What’s New with Corvette” seminar.
Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter started off with the walk-around before turning it over to Dave Tatman, the Corvette Assembly Plant Manager. Also talking 2013 Corvettes were Harlan Charles, Corvette’s Product Marketing Manager and Kirk Bennion, Corvette’s Exterior Design Engineer. The Seminar took just a little more than 20 minutes to cover the latest and final Corvette models of the C6 era but it was well worth it and very informative to all those that were there.
