It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. This Monday is Labor Day which traditionally signals the end of Summer and for many kids out there, it’s time to head back to school.

We knew it was coming – this battle between the 2013 Viper and the long-awaited 2014 Corvette Stingray.
Edmunds.com quite simply labels it the “Best. War. Ever.” Few would argue.
And (spoiler alert) while Edmunds, in the end, gives the nod to the latest-generation Corvette, it admits that the Viper is a very, very special car, despite its shortcomings.

And then there was…no light?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said this week that it is expanding its probe into complaints that low-beam headlights have suddenly quit working on some C6 Corvettes.
The investigation started in May after NHTSA received 30 reports that both low-beam headlights stopped operating at night without warning.
I know we just showed a video from Chevrolet earlier this week featuring Jay Leno and Rick Hendrick talking about the new 2014 Corvette Stingray, but this video from Jay Leno’s Garage features more of the Corvette Caravan from Monterey to Pebble Beach led by Leno and GM’s Global Design Chief Ed Welburn.
Along the way, Jay talks about his love of manual transmission cars and when he pulls onto the greens at The Quail in Pebble Beach, he remarks “Get that foreign crap out of here.”

Yes, we said Z07!
Car and Driver Magazine has obtained what may be the first official spy photos of the next high performance Corvette model. While the Z06 moniker is expected among Vette enthusiasts since that’s what it was called in both C5 and C6 configurations, Car and Driver says historical RPO codes be damned and believe GM will call it the Z07 since this is the seventh generation Corvette.
