To swing open the barn doors to find an iconic Corvette that has been stored inside for years is an amazing rush to those that have experienced it. While we can’t always be there in person to watch as an old Corvette that’s covered in a layer of fine dust is pulled from the barn to outdoors, perhaps for the first time in decades, we can relive that feeling though pictures.
If it was an April Fool’s Day joke, it was a day early – and not very funny, either.
A caller told Bowling Green Police on Tuesday, March 31 that he was holding five hostages at the National Corvette Museum, had stabbed one of them already, and demanded $50,000 in cash or he would kill everyone in the museum.
Last year we had some help upgrading a C6 Corvette with a new CORSA carbon fiber air intake and exhaust system as part of “Operation Air Flow” and the good folks at Smokey’s Dyno in Akron, OH served as our temporary installation headquarters.
Smokey’s recently had another visiting Corvette up on their dyno – a new 2015 Corvette Z06 with the Z07 performance package. Check out the dyno action as well as a little POV driving in the Corvette Z06 from the web magazine Winding Road.
Back in 2007 when this blog was still in its infancy, we attended one of our first live auctions as an official Corvette Blogger to cover some of the really cool Corvettes offered for sale. Hosted by RM Auctions, the December 2007 sale of the Al Wiseman Collection contained several prominent Corvettes including Zora Arkus-Duntov’s Harvest Gold 1955 Corvette Roadster.
But the real star of the auction, other than Val Kilmer’s Batmobile from Batman Forever, was a unique 1965 cut-away Corvette display created by General Motors to show off the inner-workings of the Corvette Sting Ray at its annual auto shows.
Monday is here and that means it’s time for a special photo gallery to salute the C2 Corvettes. Today’s Midyear Monday gallery features 32 Corvettes built during the second generation which ran from 1963 to 1967.
When he was just 8 years old, Jeff Dunham got a dummy and an instructional record from his parents for Christmas.
Thus began his intense interest in ventriloquism, an interest that has turned him into one of the top comedians in the United States today.
In fact, Dunham’s latest gig is an impressive one, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
A writer on Corvette Forum played an April Fool’s prank on his readers last week when he jokingly said that Chevy was doing away with manual transmissions starting in 2017.
Two would-be thieves in California probably wish that hoax was true.
Apparently the bumbling criminals tried to steal a Corvette convertible on Wednesday, but the guy behind the wheel didn’t know how to drive a stick and ended up backing the sports car into a set of mailboxes.
Friday at Germany’s famous Nurburgring was “Carfreitag” which translates into CarFriday. It’s the unofficial opening for allowing just about anyone to run the Nordschleife and thousands took part in the tourist drives. With that much traffic, bad things were bound to happen and this C6 Corvette and a Clio were just two of the casualties.
