Video: TVR Sagaris vs C6 Corvette

by Keith Cornett on January 9, 2007

British automotive show host Jeremy Clarkson introduces the new TVR Sagaris and then pits it against the Stig and a C6 Corvette Coupe on the track, or has he calls it, “Plastic fantastic as Kentucky takes on Blackpool.” The Sagaris is a bit more brutish than the more refined Corvette and in the end I am wondering why Top Gear choose to put it up against a topless coupe instead of the more closely matched Z06 Corvette. But hey, its television. The Stig gets the jump on the TVR and probably would win if the race was simply a 1/4 mile. (Do they race the 1/4 in the UK or is it something more akin to the 400 meter?) Despite getting beat in both the head-to-head drag and the circuit, the video is eye candy for those of us who love to watch a Corvette on the track.

Video: Jimmie Johnson and a Z06 Take Manhattan

by Keith Cornett on November 28, 2006

Jimmie Johnson is in the Big Apple this week to pick up his $7 million dollar check for winning NASCAR’s Nextel Cup. This morning he drove up to the outdoor set of Fox & Friends in a Le Mans Blue Z06 Corvette. However, the NYPD wasn’t amused with either Jimmie’s parking skills or the fact that he burned a little rubber when leaving. The strategy for handling the cops? Blame it on Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon.

Fifth Gear’s Road Test: Corvette vs Viper SRT-10

by Keith Cornett on November 17, 2006

Those that read this blog regularly probably know that I don’t do too many comparisons – putting the Corvette next to X and seeing how it performs. That just stems from my bias. The Corvette stands on its own merits and doesn’t need comparisons to make it look better. So why this post about Fifth Gear’s Tiff Needell and Jason Plato putting a C6 Coupe against the Dodge Viper SRT-10? It’s not the compare and contrast that makes this video, its the fact that these guys get two great cars on a track and just have a blast with them. Burnouts and power slides galore! So sit down, shut up and hang on, because this is a fun ride!

Video: Corvette Museum Details Expansion Plans

by Keith Cornett on October 12, 2006

The National Corvette Museum's Expansion PlansThe National Corvette Museum unveiled their 50,000 square foot expansion plans at the annual membership meeting over Labor Day Weekend. The expansion includes a library and archives, a cafe, conference center and additional space for the Delivery program. The cost of the expansion is expected to cost around $12 million dollars. The Building Campaign fund currently stands at over $2.4 million dollars in pledges and donations. With groundbreaking planned for Labor Day Weekend 2007, the museum is busy soliciting donations to determine the amount of the square footage that will be included in Phase 1 of construction. The video contains the plans for the museum and how the expansion will be integrated into the current structure. It also shows architectural representations of how the space will be allocated. I will be contacting the museum to discuss our building fund contribution and I urge all Corvette supporters to do the same. Here is the link if you are interested in helping the National Corvette Museum with a tax deductible gift to the building fund.
