[PICS] C7 Corvette Z06 Receives Satin Red Chrome Wrap


Here’s a cool Corvette Z06 that underwent a transformation to make it a one of a kind ride for the car’s owner. And that’s always been one of the draws for people who want to own America’s sports car. The Corvette Z06 was the canvas to be customized however the owner wanted and he’s obviously a fan of Red and White.

With the addition of the Lamborghini style doors, custom two-tone wheels and a custom Satin Red Chrome wrap from Impressive Wrap, this Corvette Z06 could star at any car show. While you probably wouldn’t spot it out on the track for a high performance driving event, but it’s more than ready for any booth at SEMA!

Over the weekend in Corpus Christi, TX., 400 Corvettes converged on the flight deck of the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay for an event known as “Vettes and Jets on the Lex”. The show has been held every other year since 2009 but this will be the final time that Corvettes will be hoisted to the flight deck due to the age of the elevator that lifts the cars.

We put a call out for photos earlier in the week and one of our readers responded with a fantastic photo gallery from the event. We picked nearly 60 images which are displayed below but you can go to OurVettesandJets.com to see all the photos from Phil Lewis.

According to Stephen, McCravy, events coordinator with the Corpus Christi Corvette Club who hosted the event, attendees of “Vettes and Jets on the Lex 2016” came from 19 states and as far away as Canada. The show broke a record for most Corvettes on an aircraft carrier and raised nearly $60,000 for the Wounded Warriors Project and United Service Organizations of South Texas.

It’s sad that this will be the final Vettes and Jets on the Lex, but the Museum says all that lifting of fiberglass puts too much stress on the aging elevator. The ship was commissioned in 1943 and was the oldest working aircraft carrier in the US fleet when she was decommissioned in 1991. During World War II, the USS Lexington operated in the Pacific and spent 21 months in combat.

Thanks again to honorary CorvetteBlogger Phil Lewis for allowing us to share his great photos!

[VIDEO] 1500 HP Twin Turbo C6 Corvette Clocks 204 MPH at Finland Airport

[VIDEO] 1500 HP Twin Turbo C6 Corvette Hits 200+ MPH at Finland Airport


This highly modified twin turbo C6 Corvette showed up at the Lappeenranta Airport in Finland for a few runs on the runway and the car clocked a high speed of 204.4 mph!

The C6 Corvette is said to have been dyno’d at 1,500 HP but has been detuned to 1,000 HP. Still fast enough to break into the 200 mph club. Or as they would say over there, the 320 km/h club.

If you’ve ever been to any kind of trade show, you know that companies are always trying to find new way to get the attention of attendees.

Talk about blowing away the competition!

Car and Driver just held their 10th annual Lightning Lap competition at VIR with 18 cars grouped into similar classes based on price. Think of this as the North American answer to the Nurburgring. Over the last 10 years, 201 cars have had the pants driven off of them on the 4.1 mile Grand West Course at VIR and this year, the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport was included in the LL3 class which also consisted of the 2016 Dodge Hellcat SRT, a 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 and the 2016 Lexis GS F.

ProTeam Corvette Looking for History on a 1963 Corvette Big Tank Z06 Barn Find

ProTeam Corvette Looking for History on 1963 Corvette Big Tank Z06 Barn Find


Our good friends over at ProTeam Corvette have pulled another Corvette rabbit out of their hats. This time they’ve come across an uber rare 1963 Z06 with the highly desirable N03 36 gallon gas tank option. Just 199 Corvettes had RPO Z06 on their options list in 1963. Far less than that are known today. The big tank option was only available for a short portion of the production run and they’re priced accordingly compared to the standard tank cars if/when they ever come up for sale.
