Remember that 2017 Collector Edition Grand Sport that the Corvette Museum gave away last month? Well, I didn’t win it, but one of our readers did. Shortly after he was announced as the winner, Ken Pauley reached out to us to let know that the car was soon to be his. So this episode of RIDES is all about Ken’s new GS (#43 of 1,000) and his 5-day, 2,500 mile road trip back home to Georgetown, California from the NCM. Insert your Corvette envy here.

Happy Monday, Corvette lovers! Also nice that it’s almost over, eh?

It’s the day where we pay homage to C2 Corvettes with a special photo gallery we like to call Midyear Monday! Today’s Corvette image gallery features 47 Corvettes built between 1963-1967.

Over the weekend, I posted a Gallery of C1 Corvette photos and based on a reader’s suggestion, there are now numbers associated with each photo to make it easier to share select photos.

I’m suspecting that many of you have taken advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to drive your Corvettes. I had mine out on Saturday and it’s photo #5.

If you want to see your Corvette here, just email a photo or two to [email protected] and we’ll add it to our archive.

2017 Camaro ZL1 Hits 202 MPH in Official High Speed Test


Those of you with little brothers may remember the first time he got the better of you in a fight. Well, that just happened for the Corvette team as the 2017 Camaro ZL1 just posted an official top speed run of 202 mph!

Chevrolet was in Germany testing the new Camaro ZL1 on the Automotive Testing Papenburg GmBH proving grounds which has 7.6 mile high speed oval.

The fastest and most capable Camaro made two runs on the track, one in each direction. The average speed for both runs was 198 mph, but the Camaro ZL1 hit a high of 202.3 mph in one direction and a 193.3 mph in the other.

You many not like that hatch, but everybody likes a burnout! During that commercial shoot earlier this month, this 20 seconds of the Callaway’s SC757 AeroWagen buring rubber in slow motion is a sight to behold!

The Callaway AeroWagen is a $14,990 optional rear hatch that works on all stock Corvettes (Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06) as well as the Callaway SC627 Stingray and SC757 Z06 models.

Callaway will debut the AeroWagen at the National Corvette Museum Bash event at the end of April.

Hopefully you’re enjoying your weekend. I took a drive this morning and got a wave from a C1 driver! So I figured today would be good to do a Straight Axle Saturday photo gallery featuring the most classic generation of Corvettes, the C1s!

We picked out 50 random Corvette images featuring cars built from 1953-1962.

I had a recent suggestion from a reader to add numbers to each of the images so that it makes it easier to point out or highlight specific photos in this set. So here’s the first attempt.

Saturday Morning Corvette Comic: Parkophobia. The Struggle is Real!

Saturday Morning Corvette Comic: Parkophobia is Real


Studies show that Corvette owners as a group suffer from Parkophobia, or the fear of parking. Although in our defense, it’s not so much the act of parking that frightens us, but the fear and anxiety of watching someone park next to your Corvette.
