We (and Chevrolet among others) consistently refer to the Corvette at America’s Favorite Sports car. But it’s not just America that Corvette owners love to show their pride and joy. We received an email recently from Hans Tore Tangerud who shared with us a ton of photos from the 20th Anniversary of the Norwegian Corvette club. Want to see what a first class Corvette show looks like? Check out the pics after the jump!
The great thing about Corvettes is that they appeal to just about everyone. That means sometimes that what one person deems an “ordinary” Corvette might be the “King of the Hill” to another person.
Take, for example, auto123.com’s recently listing of the Top 10 Chevrolet Corvettes of all time.
Back in February we told you about the return of the famous B2K option package for Corvettes. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the very first RPO B2K Corvette, Callaway Cars and Bowling Green will be building just 25 2012 Corvettes. We caught up with car #11 at Bloomington Gold last weekend.
That’s no rookie behind the wheel, but even an experienced driver like Kelly Bise has trouble keeping a supercharged Corvette Z06′s power under control.
In this video from High Tech Corvette, Bise gets his Z06 up to an incredible 160 mph in just a half-mile run at the Houston Mile before he lets up.

A motorcade of Corvettes recently made its way slowly down the interstate from Illinois to Tennessee.
The hours racked up behind the wheel of the cars, however, were nothing compared to the emotions of their drivers and the joy of the children once they reached St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.
The Corvette owners were participating in the first-ever St. Jude Corvette Drive in early May and wound up raising $50,000 for the hospital.
I normally don’t talk too much about my own Corvette, but this is just too cool for us to pass up. Yesterday, we posted that USA Today wants your Corvette Photos. Taking the plunge, I sent them this photo of our 1966 Corvette convertible parked at Davis Islands in Tampa.
This morning, USA Today has posted a story on their website called Happy Birthday, Chevrolet Corvette and our black Sting Ray is the 3rd image in the accompanying photo gallery.
When it comes to custom license plates, Corvette owners are tops when it comes to unique characters, phrases, or sayings. We spent took some time this weekend wandering the grounds of the Pheasant Run Resort see what the all the Corvette owners had come up with.
