A few months ago, I wrote about my experience of cramming $300 worth of groceries in a C6 Corvette convertible. You’d be surprised how much a Corvette can hold these days.

But we found a slide show on the Web this week of a man in Alberta, Canada, that has us beat.

The dude apparently forgot what kind of car he was driving when he bought a huge stuffed bear at a Costco store.

[VIDEO] 1967 Corvette Selected for Keith's Choice Award at Corvettes at Carlisle

During the Corvettes at Carlisle weekend, a number of people in the hobby ranging from media types like myself, members of the GM Corvette Team and selected Corvette vendors are given VIP status and sent out to the show field to pick a Corvette for the celebrity choice award. Winning a Celebrity Choice Award for an attendee is a big deal as not only does the winner receive an award, he gets to drive in the Celebrity Choice Parade by the Grandstands on Sunday.

It’s a huge responsibility and one we take serious here at CorvetteBlogger. For this year’s salute to Corvettes at Carlisle’s co-founder Chip Miller, we selected the white 1967 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible owned by Dennis King as Keith’s Choice Award for 2014.

The family of a Corvette driver shot and killed by police last year after an hour-long chase that was televised live will receive a $5 million settlement following a vote Wednesday by the Los Angeles City Council.

Two city council members voted against the settlement, saying they felt the city had a good chance of winning a lawsuit filed by the family of Brian Newt Beaird, 51.

Last December, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies began chasing Beaird in his Corvette in Cudahy after they suspected he was a drunk or reckless driver. When the chase reached the LA city limits, the LAPD took over as Beaird continued to drive erratically and at high speeds on freeways and surface streets in his C6 Corvette.
