[VIDEO] High Mileage C5 Corvette Now Has 709,972 Miles on Odometer


I just sold a ’97 Corvette with 82,000 miles on the odometer, and I thought that was a lot.

It’s hard to imagine, though, that there’s another C5 that has way more miles than mine, in fact nearly nine times as many!

You may recall hearing about a fellow named Mark who posted a video a while back telling about his 2000 Corvette that had racked up 650,000 miles.

Budget Supercar: 2010 Corvette ZR1 Listed for Sale for Under $50,000


Corvettes have always been noted for delivering high performance at a bargain price.

The sixth-generation ZR1 – the most powerful Corvette ever made…until the appearance of the 2015 Z06 – is definitely living up to that standard, especially these days.

We’ve been considering the purchase of a new C7 ourselves, but every once in a while, we get a wild hair and start searching the Web to see just how low 2009-13 ZR1s have plummeted. Maybe, just maybe…

Jalopnik Shines a Light on Hennessey's Tuning Business and It Isn't Pretty


When I first starting writing CorvetteBlogger ten years ago, I remember reading articles on the major auto blogs about work that was being done at Hennessey Performance Engineering and there would always be a few comments from those who said that founder John Hennessey’s business dealings were less than stellar.

Over the years those sort of the accusations seemed to fade away as Hennessey continually self-promoted their work with quality videos of various Corvettes and other performance cars undergoing dyno or performance testing. Our favorite was the new C7 2014 Corvette Stingray breaking 200 mph on a Texas toll-road with the blessing of the Texas State Police.

As of Tuesday though, our opinions have changed as Jalopnik published an expose on the Texas-based tuning shop and as we said in the title, it isn’t pretty.

Lingenfelter is a name that has come to symbolize high-performance.

A Florida car collector and hot-rodder named Bob Hunnicutt has known that first-hand for nearly 30 years.

Back in 1988, Hunnicutt and a famous tuner friend, Jim Formato, decided to upgrade the performance on a stock 240HP 1985 Corvette.
