It’s been more than 30 years since the 1984 Corvette made its debut.
But Chevy’s fourth generation sports car continues to earn industry recognition.
Calling all racers (with the means to buy an enhanced Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe)!
Like the days of old where Corvettes were so good at racing that they had their own Challenge series, Spring Mountain will be hosting a spec-Corvette racing series kicking off in early 2016.
The Michelin Corvette Challenge will feature 15 races over eight weekends in 2016 where participants will race identical track-ready Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupes on Spring Mountain’s 6.1 mile track.
Chevrolet showed off the Corvette Stingray Track Day Concept which features the Z06-based performance parts that will be used in the spec-racing series.
We all know Monday’s suck more than the Detroit Lions, but that’s no reason to fret. It’s SEMA week again here at CorvetteBlogger. The SEMA show is the marque event for the automotive custom and aftermarket industry. Each year 60,000 or so attendees flock to Las Vegas to view the latest offerings from hundreds of suppliers. Countless custom rides become the show pieces on which to display the newest products and industry trends.
While our super bloggers Keith and Steve are out in fabulous Las Vegas perusing all the latest go fast bits and eye candy for your ride, we’ve got you covered with an all custom Midyear Monday gallery this week featuring 1963-1967 Corvettes adorned with custom and aftermarket goodies.
Be sure to keep it tuned here all week as we bring all sorts of content from the 2015 SEMA show.
A rollover crash badly injured the two occupants of this C6 Corvette Z06 and left the front end of the vehicles in shambles early Friday morning.
The single-vehicle crash happened on southbound I-675 near State Route 235 in Fairborn, Ohio around 3 a.m., according to reports on WHIO-TV.
So far Chevrolet has been keeping their cards close to the vest about its Corvette display at the SEMA show this week. But that wall of silence will all come to end at tonight’s SEMA Media Preview where Chevy rolls out all their custom designed cars and trucks in advance of the SEMA show which kicks off Tuesday in Las Vegas.
Back in July we had the great opportunity to visit Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s recently opened Wixom, Michigan facility. The 30,000 square foot facility opened in late 2013 to supplement their existing operation in Decatur, Indiana and to help keep up with the growing demand for LPE products.
The last time we wrote about songs and Corvettes, our words weren’t all that complimentary to the two wannabe performers whose music videos we featured.
In that same post, we also mentioned some of the Corvette songs that were tops in our book like George Jones’ “The One I Love Before” whose lyrics features a double meaning depending on who you think he was singing about. Was the “The one I loved before” about the Vette or the girl?
Fall is the air and kids both big and small are excited about Halloween on Saturday. But we still have to close out the week and since today is the last Friday in October, that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” Corvette photo gallery. Check out our mega photo gallery with 42 random black Corvettes covering 63 years of production.
