We’ve talked about the Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingrays before because frankly, we think they’re cool. And while some other auto sites and Corvette traditionalists continue to bash these cars, we hold them up as great examples of the what can be done with a base Corvette Stingray when you have time, money and a vision.
Corvette enthusiasts have long been known for their kindness and generosity.
Check out this great example of how friends and fellow enthusiasts combined forces to make a dying Marine’s Corvette dream come true.
This morning, workers at the National Corvette Museum were able to rescue the one of a kind black Corvette ZR-1 Spyder from the massive sinkhole inside the Skydome. The Corvette was retrieved with the crane and sat on a flatbed where it was wheeled around to the other side of the museum. There, it was unloaded and put back into the museum next to the other five Corvettes that were previously rescued from the sinkhole.
Well, nobody’s perfect – not even the highly acclaimed 2014 Corvette Stingray.
At least in the eyes of one European auto journalist, Jethro Bovingdon, who seems to have mixed emotions about the seventh-generation Corvette in his video post test for EVO magazine.
Ya, in Sweden!
That’s where you’ll find one of the most unlikeliest Black and Whites around.
Of course we’re talking about this 2014 Corvette Stingray, dressed in black with white doors and the word “POLICE” emblazoned on the doors and hood.
Last week at the National Corvette Museum, workers repairing the sinkhole began vacuuming the dirt inside the hole where they thought two of the three remaining Corvettes were resting. On Friday, the NCM posted a new photo of what they are saying is the edge of the hood from the 2009 1.5 Millionth milestone car.
Who would have thought there would ever be a time when we’d be talking about great fuel economy with a high-performance car with an automatic transmission?
But these aren’t ordinary times, at least when it comes to the seventh-generation Corvette.
Two great high performance Corvettes recently debuted in Europe: the Z06 and the C7.R racing vehicle. http://www.chevroleteurope.com/corvette

Race car driver Oliver Gavin, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter, and Technical Communications Manager Patrick Herrmann discuss these two great vehicles.

The Corvette Stingray has been in production for roughly eight months now and we’re starting to see some owners and shops show off their custom work. One shop that is well known for their over-the-top designs and fabrications is West Coast Customs, who recently showed off a completed supercharged Corvette Stingray on their facebook page.
