I caught this article on Jalopnik this afternoon about the fires in Texas destroying a huge car collection. John Chapman and his family are okay after one of the Texas wildfires ravaged his property in Bastrop. His house got singed by the flames but came though okay. Unfortunately, the fire burned his collection of 175 classic and vintage cars including a dozen Corvettes.

Corvettes at Carlisle: Downtown Parade

Article and Photos contributed by Steve Burns

I was finally able to make it to Carlisle’s downtown parade for the first time last weekend. I’m little bit embarrassed to admit that in my 5 previous trips to Carlisle that it wasn’t really on my radar screen of must-attend events. Now I’m trying to find a functional flux capacitor and a DeLorean so I can go back in time and catch up on the parades I’ve missed.

Corvette Vanity License Plates from Corvettes at Carlisle

In our latest edition of Corvette Vanity Plates, we walked row after row of parked Corvettes at Corvettes at Carlisle to bring you some of the best custom plates we’ve seen yet. After photographing hundreds of Corvette vanity plates over the last year, I’ve come to the conclusion that Corvette owners with custom vanity plates fall into one of two camps. The first are those with plates that describe the car, like “ZRRR-1″ and “505HP Z06″ and then there are those that express the owner’s state of mind as in “LIFES GD” and “EZ LIVIN”. Corvette owners have no shortage of creativity which you’ll see on full display after the jump.

BALTIMORE, Sept. 2, 2011 – A late start and a scant 75 minutes of practice meant that the learning curve for the American Le Mans Series Baltimore Grand Prix was a steep one. Jan Magnussen and Tommy Milner proved to be fast learners when they qualified Corvette Racing’s twin Compuware C6.Rs second and fourth respectively for Saturday’s two-hour street race through downtown Baltimore.
