It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Here’s a picture of a cool dude’s selfie with his 1965 or 1966 Corvette Sting Ray that was taken back in 1968.
Between the mid 1960s and the mid 1970s, if you wanted a Corvette, or any other Chevrolet product, that would absolutely kick butt at any drag strip in the country, Joel Rosen at Baldwin Motion was the man to see.

On this week’s webisode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the well-known Porsche affectionado opts for a classic 1956 Corvette in Cascade Green which he uses to pick up and drive around fellow comedian and host of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon.
Pratt and Miller, the award-winning team behind the Chevrolet Corvette’s factory-supported racing effort known simply as Corvette Racing, released an interesting new video last night that takes a deep dive into the philosophy of racing.

But alas, this is just a photoshop, “created for competition” says the note that goes along with the posting by RC82 WORKCHOP on Facebook.

Angelyne is a Hollywood celebrity who is now best known for, well, being a Hollywood celebrity. When asked what exactly it was that she did, she answered, “Although I act, model, dance, paint, write and create magic, I’m most known for my persona, the essence of who I am.”
The owner of two original Granatelli turbine cars says it’s time for someone else to have fun with the vehicles.
