It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a… Corvette?
That’s one way to describe a high-speed chase involving a stolen C4 Corvette that left the ground before slamming into the wall of a house in Miami, Fla., late Tuesday night.
When we think about all the reviews we’ve seen about the new C7’s interior, we find the main focus is usually the seats or the configurable display that gets the most attention. But what about some of the more mundane features (if you can refer to anything on the Stingray as ‘mundane’) like the inside of the center console or where you plug in your cell phone?
Paul Pearson, is a Corvette Forum member (Talon90) who also works with the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. He recently posted these close up photos of the interior on the Corvette Forum which detail some of the creature comforts of the C7 including the various ways you can “plug” into the car for charging and or media.
Pat Monahan is no stranger to hard work, especially after restoring a 1962 red Corvette over the past 20 years.
That’s why it is no surprise that after his prized ’62 Corvette was stolen last month during the Monterey Peninsula’s Classic Car Week, Monahan decided to go to work the best way he knew and began plastering the Internet with information about the missing car.
Right on the heels of his successful Monterey event which generated over $31M in sales, Dana Mecum is headed to the Lone Star state to host another auction extravaganza, September 4th through the 7th. This will be Mecum’s third year for his annual Dallas event held at the convention center and will be loaded with over 1400 collector cars featuring over a hundred Corvettes including several examples of the six generations.
One of the topics I love covering at the big Corvette shows are the vanity plates that owners put on their Corvettes. Corvettes at Carlisle is no exception as the thousands of Corvettes parked in the fun field and surrounding lots make for a target rich environment when it comes to seeing the fun and witty comments that owners put on their cars.
Here’s something you don’t see every day – a Corvette Grand Sport (1960s variety) – sloshing its way along muddy roads in the wilds of Africa.
Cars like this are usually seen on a race track competing in motorsport, but this one has been modified by Tachyon Motorsport to be driven by Michiel Campagne and Mike van Thiel on Nov. 29 in Kenya during the East-African Safari Rally, which bills itself as “The World’s Greatest Rally.”
The award for EMPLOYER of the Week goes to Doctor Flue, Inc.
We think the Michigan chimney sweep company deserves kudos after its recent purchase of a 1975 Corvette Stingray that each Employee of the Week will get to drive around for the week they’re being honored.
One of our favorite models from the 1960’s is up for grabs this weekend at Mecum’s 2013 Dallas auction. It’s a rare Red/Red 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe with the Z06 racing package. The Red Corvette Split Window comes from the Buddy Herin Collection which also is offering a 1967 L88 Corvette Convertible we featured last month.
