Guys like Zora Arkus-Duntov, Harley Earl and Ed Cole are the names of legends to those of us who are Corvette fans.
Like Mad Men for car guys, I imagine Corvette’s first Chief Engineer and his wife Elfie hosting a cocktail party in the early ’60s at their Detroit home with the whose-who of Chevrolet performance walking the halls or standing in the kitchen with drinks in their hands talking about the latest engine test or what crosstown rivals Ford was up to.
Now you can walk those same halls that Zora once did as the house that he and his wife Elfie owned is back on the market.

There is no doubt that the 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most capable performance Corvette that Chevrolet has ever made. But to really experience the full bandwidth of performance available, owners are encouraged to take their car to the track. And there lies the conundrum… While the Corvette Z06 may be ready for the track, sometimes the driver isn’t which is why we have the photos of a Corvette Z06 that went off the track and into the weeds at a recent SCCA event.
In addition to the truckload of new 2016 Corvette Z06s received earlier this week, our friends at Kerbeck Corvette just got their first shipment of 2016 Corvette Stingrays and that gives us the opportunity to share photos of a couple new options and equipment for the new model year.
Say the name of Caravaggio to those Corvette owners in the know and immediately visions of handcrafted leather seats and D-shaped steering wheels come to mind. But John Caravaggio’s shop is capable of transforming an entire Corvette inside and out and he recently showed off his latest work on a customer’s C7 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
We first saw the return of RPO B92 at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash event where it was on display on the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition. But that hood was covered with a Jake graphic and with the car roped off and parked indoors, it was hard to get a really good look at it let alone a good photo. Now we have some new pics from our friends at Kerbeck Corvette showing the B92 hood on a new 2016 Corvette Z06.
Check out this video of a 1967 Corvette “Revelation” built by Mike Goldman Customs that won the 2015 Goodguy’s Street Machine of the Year crown in Columbus, Ohio at the 18th PPG Nationals on Saturday night.
New this year was placing all eligible cars in each category inside the Celeste Center, host site for the awards ceremony. That’s where the top five finalists in both divisions were announced to the crowd, then driven to the stage for the official ceremonies.
But first Scottie D TV gives us this walk around of the wild but restrained C2 done in white over tan.
