As time ticks down on the remaining 2014 Corvette Stingray model year, it’s now too late to custom order a car. So if you want to enjoy a new C7 Coupe or Convertible this summer, you’ll have to select from the cars a dealer has in stock.
Each year the Corvette Reunion, held in conjunction with the Back to the Bricks car show in downtown Flint, Michigan, continues to attract more and more Corvettes from all across the country and this year plans have been made to accommodate 800 Corvettes, up about 150 over last year’s numbers.
In 2013 Corvettes showed up from as far away as Hawaii and included every generation plus hundreds of restomods and custom Corvettes. Officially this is the fifth anniversary of the event and will take place on Friday night, August 15th and Saturday, August 16th.
Today marks a new partnership for two performance organizations that both happen to call Bowling Green, Kentucky home.
Holley Performance Products and the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park today announced the sponsorship of the track’s control tower and event center.
The two-level Holley Control Tower and Event Center will mimic the look of the National Corvette Museum and construction is slated to begin sometime in 2015.
It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Here’s a picture of a long lost Corvette Concept that served as the personal car for GM Style Chief Bill Mitchell.

The Corvette Stingray has been a great story for Chevrolet, winning an unprecedented number of awards including being named the 2014 North American Car of the Year. But the Stingray is also beating its rivals where it counts – the dealership sales floors.
That noise you heard after the All-Star Game Tuesday night was the sound of young Corvette enthusiasts practicing on their hitting skills.
Who could blame them after the Most Valuable Player of this year’s game, the Angels’ Mike Trout, won a new Stingray for his outstanding performance?
Trout – who doubled, tripled, drove in two runs, and scored a run to lead the American League to a 5-3 win – actually had his choice of either a Stingray or a Silverado full-size pickup during the MVP award ceremony, but naturally the 22-year-old standout picked the latest rendition of Chevy’s popular sports car.
This you tube publisher named Lia goes by the name SSSniperWolf and has a pretty serious video channel with over 600.000 subscribers. While most of her videos are about gaming and cosplay, she posted this video showing off her new 2014 Corvette Stingray. The day she brings it home, she goes to work in her garage applying Plasti Dip to the front crossed flags emblems, the chrome grill trim and the wheels which gives it a nice blacked out look.
Back in 1989, I ordered my second new Corvette – a 1989 red on red coupe.
My girlfriend at the time and now my wife of 25 years (our anniversary is July 15, coincidentally) Cindy worked at a day care center.
She knew, of course, that I had ordered a new Corvette and just happened to be looking out the window at work one afternoon when she saw a truckload of Corvettes pass by – with a shiny red one on the back! In those days, they didn’t come giftwrapped in a white cover like the C7s!
“I think I just saw your Corvette pass by!” she called excitedly to tell me.
Sure enough, it was.
Fast forward to last weekend, and classic car collector Luigi Capilupi had a similar moment – but just one that wasn’t quite as happy for the owner as my own story.
