The 2016 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance takes place this weekend in Amelia Island, Florida. One of the show’s features this year is a tribute to late Corvette racer John Greenwood. Included in the invitation-only display of rare Corvettes will be a black 1981 Corvette Greenwood GTO owned by Ken Lingenfelter which is housed in his immense collection.
Let’s face it, mounting a front license plate on a C6 Corvette sucks. The “official” method requires drilling into the front fascia – something most Corvette owners are not real comfortable doing. And if you’ve been going without a front license plate, you know that feeling of wondering if you’re going to be pulled over. You could be facing a ticket ranging from $100-$250!
So leave it to Corvette enthusiast and NCRS judge to come up with a much better method – the C6 Aero-Plate!

Classic Corvettes like the original Grand Sports are amazing automobiles, but half a century of technological progress has definitely left them lacking in some ways.
But what if you could buy a brand new Grand Sport that looks like the 1963 model but has the modern suspension, steering, and powertrain of the modern era for much less than the original five classics would set you back some 53 years later?

Lawyers are getting ready to rev up their engines again as the noise dispute over the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park in Bowling Green continues later this month.
Neighbors of the park have been complaining for more than a year about the increased noise levels, and in response, the NCM has submitted a revised detailed development plan that is supposed to be considered by the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County on March 17.
As someone who uses Adobe’s popular Photoshop software for image editing, all I can say is WOW! about RP Design’s video showing a rendering of a C6 Corvette ZR1 from start to finish. If you haven’t seen this yet and you work with photoshop or just enjoy “how did they do that” mashups, this video is for you.
With a world record for top speed for street legal electric cars already under their belt, builders of the Genovation GXE all-electric Corvette say they’ve just begun.
We told you about the Genovation a few months ago,when officials with the company promised some pretty impressive numbers, like 0 to 60 in 3 seconds and a 200 mph top speed thanks to the 700 electric horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque.
Now, it looks like it was a whole lot more than just talk.
Last week at the Geneva Motor Show, Chevrolet shocked the world with the debut of the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport. It’s the fourth time that Chevrolet has used the Grand Sport name for the Corvette and the new model pays homeage to the historic racing legacy that began with Zora Arkus-Duntov’s vision of an ultra-light race car that would compete at the 24 hours of Le Mans.
Good news for owners of 2016 Corvettes (and certain other Chevy products) who want to hook up their Android phones to their new vehicles.
Chevrolet has just announced that dealers finally have the software for updating eight-inch MyLink systems with Android capability.
Great news for those Corvette enthusiasts who have the blues after it was announced earlier this year that Laguna Blue would be phased out of the Corvette exterior color palate in 2016. Blue is one of those colors that tends to wind up with in the middle of popular colors, so we didn’t doubt for a moment that there would be a new Blue exterior for 2017 Corvettes back in the line-up.
