A sinkhole under the gold rotunda at the National Corvette Museum opened this morning and swallowed at least eight Corvettes according to multiple accounts. The hole is estimated to be around 40 feet wide and 20 feet deep.
Here’s a pretty funny video of two guys in a old VW who chase down a pre-production Corvette Z06 prototype as it pulls into a Walmart in Yuma, AZ. The driver of the Corvette greets the two and answers some basic questions before heading inside, although we found it interesting that he further confuses them by referring to the Corvette by its Z07 equipment package instead of the model designation which is indeed the Z06.
Wait, SCCA racing on a frozen lake? Count us in! We don’t see this Stingray take on the whole course but the video shows the painfully slow launch as the Corvette begins its run.
Filmed at the Saginaw Valley SCCA Ross Lake ice race in Beaverton MI on Jan 26th 2014. Here’s a sound clip of a stock 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray Z51 with dual mode performance exhaust. The new LT1 engine sounds great. Yes, it actually did race the ice race!
The Corvette is owned by Casey Swanseger and he sent us a link to his GoPro video showing the run on the ice course. You can watch it here.

Here’s another one of John Greenwood’s infamous Corvette Sport wagons. Part Corvette, part station wagon, it’s the ultimate sport utility vehicle. This yellow 1975 Corvette was recently pulled from a garage where it sat for 10 years and if you’re interested in becoming its next owner, you’ve now got less than one day to get in on this eBay deal before the sale closes on Tuesday afternoon.
Ten by 10, they’ve been marching into the Bloomington Gold “Great Hall” since 2010, an honor designed to recognize the 50 most influential people, cars, and organizations that have had a pioneering influence on the Corvette world.
The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky., is among the 10 honorees selected this year.
Lately we’ve been thinking about adding some additional eye candy to CorvetteBlogger with some random photo galleries. So why not kick this week off with 20+ random photos of 1963-1967 Corvettes, affectionately referred to as midyears. If you like, feel free to offer a suggestion for an image gallery of Corvettes you would like to see.
It doesn’t come with a trophy, but the new Corvette Stingray can still feel pretty good about itself after earning some pretty high praise from the folks at Autocar.co.uk.
“As car enthusiasts, we love the new Corvette Stingray,” says Autocar’s Steve Sutcliffe. “We think so much of it, in fact, that we’ve lined it up here beside the very best sports cars that Europe can offer, each of which has been handpicked to gauge just how good the new seventh-generation Corvette has become.”
