The seventh-generation Corvette continues to earn positive reviews from the media.
The latest to jump aboard the Stingray bandwagon is Fortune Magazine.
One of the highlights of Corvettes at Carlisle is the Saturday evening parade where hundreds of Corvettes make their way from the fairgrounds to downtown Carlisle. Leading the parade was Bill Miller in a classic C1 Convertible while Lance Miller was driving his 2012 Carlisle Blue Corvette ZR1.
Behind them was the GM / Corvette Team reps all driving the new 2014 Corvette Stingrays.
This beautiful 1965 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe was parked in the fun field at the 2013 Corvettes at Carlisle and when we first saw the restored we literally stopped dead in our tracks and started shooting away with our camera.
Our friends at Mid America Motorworks recently announced that they’ve setup a college scholarship in the name of Dave McLellan. McLellan was the 2nd Chief Engineer on the Corvette program and helped bring the C4 ZR1 to life among other achievements. The fund, known as the David R. McLellan Engineering Endowed Scholarship will support mechanical engineering students at Wayne State University – McLellan’s alma mater in Detroit.
We’ve been a little C7 heavy here lately so here’s a C2 to mix things up. Mecum Auctions will be offering an uber rare 1967 L88 convertible next month at their Dallas sale. The Marlboro Maroon on black roaster will be crossing Mecum’s red carpet about 2:30pm central time on Saturday, September 7th. It’s one of 11 cars being offered from the Buddy Herin collection that weekend in Texas. Get your banker on the phone now, because this one is going to be expensive, really expensive.
Chevrolet has already unveiled the most fuel-efficient Corvette in history, the 2014 Corvette Stingray with direct injection and cylinder deactivation.
But the automaker may have some more tricks up its sleeves to squeeze even more miles out of every tank of gas going through the Stingray.
