Someone once said there are two kinds of Corvette owners – drivers and polishers. We all know that keeping your Corvette looking as good as the day it rolled off the showroom floor is an unstated rule of Corvette ownership and that’s what leads us to our question of the day. How do you wash your Corvette?
Once again our friends at ProTeam Corvette Sales will be hosting a NCRS Technical Seminar. This year’s event is coming up on November 9th and the main topic is “How Chevrolet’s Relentless Pursuit of HP Benefited Corvette”. The all-day session is co-sponsored by the Michigan and Heart of Ohio chapters of the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS). NCRS membership isn’t required to attend and the cost is just $20 at the door. That admission fee also includes breakfast and lunch.
Many of us have reported seeing new Corvette Stingrays on a hauler going down the highway on their way to some lucky owners.
But here’s something that might be a first: a 2014 Stingray aboard an airplane!
Forgiato Wheels has recently shown off a rendering of a widebody C7 Corvette Stingray that the company is building for the SEMA show next month in Las Vegas. The Corvette is being modified by Topo aka the self-proclaimed widebody king. The render shows what the finished Corvette will look like when finished but we also found some pics showing the transformation in progress.
Thanks to some Corvette transfusions and the support of former General Motors’ vice chairman Bob Lutz, the beleaguered Fisker Karma will apparently live on.
Fisker sold about 1,800 Karmas before having to shut down in November 2012 when the company ran out of money and couldn’t make loan payments to the Department of Energy.
VL Automotive, backed by Lutz, plans to use two different Corvette engines to convert 25 unsold Karmas from hybrid power.

The new Corvette Stingray has been earning accolades from the press ever since it was unveiled earlier this year.
It’s only natural that the General Motors Assembly Plant in Bowling Green where America’s Sports Car has been built since 1981 would share in that glory, too.
Earlier this month the Bowling Green Assembly Plant was named Manufacturer of the Year by the Kentucky Association for Manufacturers (KAM) at the 2013 KAM Manufacturer and Employee of the Year Awards ceremony.
The driver of this C5 Corvette Convertible is very lucky after surviving a crash off of Muholland Highway near Malibu, CA.
The Corvette went over the side of the road, and the driver was able to walk black up to the main highway afterwards.
