Man Teaches Daughter How To Do Donuts In A Corvette ZHZ

This video is awesome on so many levels. First, the lure of hooning a rented car is strong motivation enough, but when that rental is a Velocity Yellow Corvette ZHZ from Hertz, your sense of right and wrong goes out the door. But the real beauty of this video is the relationship between father and daughter. She will never forget the day her dad taught her how to do donuts in a yellow Corvette and believe me, neither will he.

Corvette Racing's New 2011 C6.R Livery Spotted at Sebring Test

Facebook user John Machaqueiro spotted Pratt & Miller’s trailers set up for the two day test at Sebring International Raceway that begins tomorrow. Parked next to it was the #4 Corvette C6.R showing off its new livery for the 2011 season. Once again, the team’s livery maintains the yellow and black paint scheme with the major change being the silver “barbed wire/throwing stars” look giving way to a silver stripe beginning as a point on the doors and then wrapping around the rear. Another new addition is the commemorative Chevrolet 100 Years logo on the hood.

[VIDEO] C6 Corvette Driver Slippin and Sliding in the Snow

by Keith Cornett on February 4, 2011

This poor driver in a Silver C6 Corvette was attempting to drive on I-30 near Buckner Blvd in Dallas but the roads were proving almost too much for the 436-hp rear wheel drive sports car and this traffic-copter caught it all. His frustration rises to the point where he actually gets out of the car and shrugs his shoulders in the near defeat. But the Corvette owner isn’t defeated and soon he is back behind the wheel and slipping and sliding his way to what we hope is a nice warm garage.
