Here’s a great picture that shows just how fast the 1400-car shipping lot at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant is filling with brand spanking new 2014 Corvette Stingrays. We understand that the Quality Control process has been very tight, but with this many Stingrays lined up and ready to go, it most likely means that the QC isn’t finding many issues and production is ramping up.
It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Here we have two beautiful icons from the 1960s. The first is obviously a 1969 Corvette Stingray with a wild custom paint job that makes us wish it was in color. And secondly, the mainstay of automotive events is Miss whatever-the-name-of-the-dragstrip.
A new original TV series called “Corvette Nation” will be making its debut Friday night at 7pm ET on Discovery’s Velocity channel. The 13-episode series dedicated to America’s favorite sports car will feature all sorts of events, people and of course the car that we love so much.
The first episode was shot during the Bloomington Gold Corvette show this past June so if you were there, make sure you tune in.

Well, Jessi Lang with The J-Turn web show for Motor Trend wanted to find out so she took a 2014 Corvette Stingray to the K&N facility. With Robert “Pops” Calles, product tech with K&N, behind the wheel, the blue Z51 was taken to the limit on the dyno, literally.
We’ve all heard of the AstroVentilation that was used to keep passengers cool in the 1960s and 1970s, sort of a poor man’s air conditioner. But Austin Reed of Texas has an “AstroVette.”

General Motors’ North American President Mark Reuss visits with Motor Trend’s Wide Open Throttle crew and he talks about the new Corvette Stingray and the new Camaro Z/28. What’s in the future for Chevy’s high performance line up? Check out the video after the jump.

One of the reasons why we’re seeing so many positive review of the C7 Corvette’s seats is because the C6 seats are pretty awful. Now, I’m not jumping on the “Dissing the C6 because of Crappy Seats” bandwagon, which I believe already left the station a few years back.
