Today was a fun day for Corvette Racing driver Oliver Gavin. This morning he sent out a cryptic tweet suggesting something special was on the way. And when that special something finally arrived, even the rainy weather in the Englishman’s home town of Yardley Hastings couldn’t dampen his spirits when he saw his Arctic White Corvette Stingray Z51 for the first time.
How do you make any year or model of Corvette even more bad-ass than they already are? Put them in the hands of Johnny Law!
Corvettes have a long history of being used by police departments everywhere from DARE anti-drug show cars to being used as pursuit vehicles. Whatever the reason, nothing screams faster than fast than a Corvette with a police livery and an emergency light bar flashing.
So for a special Friday image gallery, we present these really cool Corvette police cars. Do you have a favorite Corvette in this week’s gallery? Let us know and be sure to share this page on Twitter and Facebook.
One thing about Corvettes: You can count on constant innovations and improvements to the car every year.
By becoming the first production model to use the TCA® Ultra Lite™ material, the new Stingray coupe has shaved 20 pounds off its total weight.
I finally took the plunge and test-drove a C7 Corvette last weekend.
My brief five minutes behind the wheel of a seven-speed Torch Red Z51 Coupe made me an instant believer in all the hoopla about Chevrolet’s latest generation of America’s Sports Car.
Going from the first year of the fifth generation (I have a 1997 Torch Red Coupe) to the first year of the seventh generation in one day showed me just how much the car has been improved, not that the C5 is a bad car by any means, though.
We love barn finds and got another fun one to share today that is now listed on eBay. It’s a non-running, non-driving, non-starting Vette that has (nearly) all the bits and pieces needed to restore and it only requires your time and money to make it whole again.
If there is any behavior behind the wheel of an automotive that is the scourge of our society, it’s the practice of driving while intoxicated. We’ve share more than few stories of Corvettes being hit by drunk drivers along with the damage caused by owners who were behind the wheel of their Corvettes when they shouldn’t have been.
The amount of lives and property damage that could be saved by simply handing the keys to someone else is staggering with some estimates of the costs of driving drunk ranging to more than 10,000 lives and $130+ billion each year.
So with that being said, we are sharing this video of a Corvette owner walking around and checking out the damage to his car after it was recently hit by a drunk driver.
