Earlier this month, we learned that Vossen Wheels was one among the lucky first to take delivery of a new 2014 Corvette Stingray. After fitting the C7 Stingray with their new monoblock CVT wheels, the guys took the car to the track. Vossen filmed the Corvette having all that fun on the track and has put out a teaser video with the full release expected this Friday.
American cars of the 1950s and ’60s aren’t popular just in the United States.
For example, wealthy collectors in China love the unique style and charisma of muscle cars like a 1964 Corvette Sting Ray that left this week on an 1,100-mile journey that began at the Great Wall near Beijing and will end Friday in Shanghai.
Sixth-place finish with Taylor enough to take title at Road Atlanta; No. 4 Corvette places 10th
BRASELTON, Ga. (Oct. 19, 2013) – Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen closed the American Le Mans Series era by winning the GT drivers’ championship Saturday at Petit Le Mans. The pairing drove with Jordan Taylor to a sixth-place finish in the No. 3 Compuware Chevrolet Corvette C6.R at Road Atlanta. Garcia won his first ALMS title, and Magnussen claimed another to go along with his 2008 GT1 championship.
When I was younger, I dated a girl who took great pride in telling everyone she had a ‘Vette.
Then she would mumble under her breath that it actually was a “Che-vette.”

SAVE THE STINGRAYS!
Last night we learned about a strange incident at the Texas State Fair where a participant at the Chevy Ride and Drive event crashed into two Corvette Stingrays with the back of 2014 Impala. We now have some more details from someone that was at the event and saw the crash first hand and told us that isn’t entirely accurate.

We’re debuting a new tag tonight called “SAVE THE STINGRAYS”. We think it’s only proper given the fact that learned tonight about another two or three C7 Corvettes that were taken out in a case of Bow-tie on Bow-tie violence in Texas.
According to Jalopnik, things got interesting at the Chevy Ride and Drive event on Wednesday afternoon at the Texas State Fair after an unidentified driver in the 2014 Impala hit two or three 2014 Corvette Stingrays, damaging at least two of the C7s as well as the Impala.
