If you’re going to be involved in a sideshow, you better be prepared to lose your car.

At least in Stockton, Calif., where the owner of this silver C5 Corvette had his or her car impounded after being suspected of taking part in a sideshow there in March.

A sideshow, in case you haven’t heard, is an informal and illegal demonstration of automotive stunts often held in vacant lots and public intersections, most commonly doughnuts.

There are few limitations in the world of restomods, the only boundaries being set by the tastes and the abilities of individual constructors. Corvette restomods are typical of the genre in that many are finished in bright, sometimes audacious colors that, while drawing attention to the vehicle, may detract from its overall appearance. The same can be said of restomod interiors and wheels. The interior may be so modified that all connection with the heritage of the original vehicle is lost and the rims have so much bling that they actually draw attention away from the car design rather than complementing it.

[PIC] 90210 and Sharknado Star Ian Ziering Drives a Black Corvette Stingray


For those of you that remember FOX’s teenage drama Beverly Hills 90210 from the 1990’s, actor Ian Ziering played high school student Steve Sanders, the son of a famous actress. On the show, Steve drove a C4 Corvette Convertible with the awesome vanity license plate that read “I8A 4RE”.

I had the opportunity to meet Ian at a FOX-TV rollout party back in the 90’s. We got to talking and it turned out that he was a Corvette enthusiast in real life as well. If I recall correctly, it was his idea to use a Corvette as Steve Sander’s car on Beverly Hills 90210.

Today, Ian is back in the news after posting a photo of himself behind the wheel of the new Corvette Stingray.
