The second generation Corvette is considered to be an icon of American car design and who are we to disagree! Here’s an outstanding random photo gallery of 1963-1967 Corvettes to help start off the week. .
While we were in Bowling Green in late August for the National Corvette Museum Corvette Caravan, my son Chris and I enjoyed touring the factory for probably the fifth or sixth time since 1997.
We didn’t realize it at the time, but we were actually watching some of the 2015 Stingrays being assembled that are now being recalled by Chevrolet for two separate problems.
For years, Corvette enthusiasts have been intrigued by the Peter Max Corvettes, that collection of 36 Corvettes owned by the pop art star who became famous in the 1960s.
The Corvettes, one each from 1953 through 1989, were the grand prize in a VH1 contest back in 1989, with a carpenter from Long Island chosen as the lucky winner.
Our friends at Corvette Nation TV have been busy filming at various Corvette shows across the country this summer and the new season will kick-off this Saturday morning at 10 AM ET on the Velocity Network. If you haven’t been watching the only cable TV show solely focused on the Chevrolet Corvette and the hobby that surrounds it, now is your chance!
In the first episode of Corvette Nation’s second season, the show’s hosts Maria Prekeges, Bill Stephens and Michael Brown take a visit to the National Corvette Museum’s 20th Anniversary and the grand opening of the new NCM Motorsports Park.
The show airs at a different time than last year so set your DVRs now for Saturdays at 10 am on Discovery’s Velocity Channel to catch all the exciting Corvette action with Corvette Nation TV. For the latest show updates, make sure you are following Corvette Nation TV on Facebook.
Every year Autocar Magazine gathers an eclectic collection of vehicles that are available in Britain and puts them through three days of testing on the road and on the track to determine Britain’s Best Driver’s Car. This year’s contest was based at the racetrack at Castle Combe, Chippenham, which, in addition to the track, was in easy reach of several ‘decent’ roads. In their words, ‘And by decent, we of course mean poorly surfaced and badly cambered as only the finest British roads can be.’
Check out this cool video of a 1964 Corvette Restomod that was submitted by a reader. His dad’s Corvette was recently featured in Super Chevy Magazine:
The idea of this video was derived from Rob at Underground Racing. Video is of my fathers 1964 Corvette Stingray, which has been referred to as “Stepchild’s Revenge.” It made the cover of the December issue of Vette Magazine. This was made for my video production class at school. I have a passion for making car videos and hopefully one day work for a big automobile corporation.
We assume the “stepchild” in the title refers to the nickname many have given the 1964 Corvette. With an LS7 under the hood, we see how this midyear model dishes out its revenge! Thanks for sharing Kyle and great job on the video!

One of the hallmarks of the new 2015 Corvette Z06 and the C7.R Corvette race car is that they were developed together utilizing the lessons learned from the C6 Corvette and the C6.R race car.
In a new video by Chevrolet, Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner and Corvette’s Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter talk about the transfer of technology from the racing program to the production Corvette.
