[PICS] Here is the New Motorsports Wheel for the 2016 Corvette Stingray


One of the new wheel options available on the 2016 Corvette Stingray is called the “Motorsports” wheel and it’s available on the new Twilight Blue and Spice Red Design Packages as well as through the Genuine Corvette Accessories catalog.

The Motorsports Wheel made its debut at the Bash back in April, but only in the Corvette’s presentation of What’s New for the 2016 Corvette seminar.

Thanks to our friend Rick “Corvette” Conti from Ohio’s Coughlin Chevrolet, we are finally able to check out the new wheels on a Stingray.

CORRECTION: 1960 CERV 1 Sale Still in Play According to Mike Yager


UPDATE: We heard from Mike Yager this morning after we published an article regarding the sale of the 1960 CERV 1 (Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle) at RM’s Monterey Auction. He told us that the price was incorrect and that negotiations with a potential buyer are continuing.

We’ve pulled the incorrect article and will wait for final confirmation as to the status of one very cool prototype.

We apologize for the confusion.

 

[PICS] 1972 Corvette Field Car Gets a Second Chance on eBay


Barn finds and field cars.

It’s always seemed to me that when looking at pictures of a barn find Corvette, no matter what the condition, there is an emotion that feels almost magical. The sight of a Corvette sitting outside in a field where it’s at the mercy of the elements brings up feelings that are exactly opposite.

Seeing a Corvette rotting away in a field or backyard is just sad. But thanks to eBay, there is hope that these Corvettes might get another chance.

We’re hoping this 1972 Corvette field car that recently sold on eBay falls into that category.

It was back in May that we published one of our most popular stories so far in 2015. That story featured photos of Mary Barra’s 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. Since then, we’ve been wondering when we would actually see General Motors’ CEO in the car and yesterday our prayers were finally answered.

Ms. Barra posted a photo of herself Saturday morning in the Black Z06 convertible which she’s nicknamed “The Beast” and then she joined 1.5 million automotive fans as she headed out for Saturday’s Woodward Dream Cruise.

Corvette Will Be Among the Last Vehicles to Go Autonomous


All the talk about self-driving cars from Google and others sure to follow has been a little worrisome for those of us Corvette enthusiasts who actually enjoy climbing behind the wheel and – egads! – driving our vehicles the way they are designed to be driven.

The good news is that Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter recently made public comments that should allow enthusiasts to rest easy.

Chevy Says You Should Change Your Corvette Z06's Oil After First 500 Miles


Chevrolet’s Corvette Z06 is a technological masterpiece when it comes to spinning fast laps on a track, but there does seem to be a not so positive narrative emerging about the LT4s inability to keep those track laps going without overheating or worse, having the engine granading itself.

We’ve told the tale of a Corvette Forum user named ‘lawdogg149′ whose Corvette Z06’s engine blew up with just 891 miles on the odometer while another Forum owners says his blew up with only 6 miles on it. Most recently, Fox New Reporter Gary Gastelu ended his track day early after dropping oil and “some bits and pieces” on the track.

Corvettes and white letter tires go hand and hand. Like many classic Corvette owners, my 1966 Corvette Sting Ray is wearing a set of white letter BF Goodrich Radial T/As. I think it gives it that ‘period’ look which is a bit racier in my opinion than going with a traditional white wall tire.

So when we found this Corvette Z06 with the painted Michelin’s, I feel like I get the look that the owner was trying to convey.

[VIDEO] Another Look at George Talley's Stolen, Recovered and Now Restored 1979 Corvette
