[STOLEN] 1996 Corvette Grand Sport Stolen in Suffolk England


Twenty years ago, Chevrolet closed out the C4 Corvette generation with a special run of 1,000 Corvette Grand Sports – 810 Coupes and 190 Convertibles. These Admiral Blue Corvettes are very distinctive with the white full length body stripe, Black Wheels and Red Hash Marks on the fender and they are a fairly rare sighting today on the streets unless you go to one of the bigger national shows.

We imagine that spotting a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport in the U.K. is even rarer which makes this story about a stolen Corvette in England newsworthy to Corvette enthusiasts everywhere.

[VIDEO] 2016 Corvette's Front Facing Parking Assist Curb Cameras in Action


Want to know why Corvette owners always back their cars into parking spaces? It’s so they don’t crunch the front bumper or splitter on the parking curb. On a Corvette Z06 with the visible Carbon Fiber splitter, that crunch can cost you $3,995! With newer Corvettes, owners can use the rear backup camera to assist with parking when backing in, but sometimes backing in isn’t always practical.

You spoke and the Corvette Team answered by adding one of the most asked-for options to the 2016 Corvette – the addition of two front facing parking assist cameras which will help guide owners into parking spots by showing the distance to curb, garage wall or other obstacles.

The GoldTour has been one of the marquee events of Bloomington Gold for many years now. Each Saturday night of the Bloomington Weekend thousands of Corvettes gather for a Corvette parade through the countryside surrounding the show’s location.

Would the artist that rendered this C8 Corvette Zora ZR1 please set forward! Because your render of the rumored mid-engine Corvette is one of the best we’ve seen yet. We found this posted on Facebook and seaching BUZZART has led us nowhere, at least when it comes to automotive designs, so if you’re out there, let us know!

The rendered C8 Corvette is part of a trio of images, first showing the C7 Corvette Stingray and then evolving into what the next generation Corvette might look like in a mid-engine configuration.

Legendary Corvette Racer and Racecar Builder John Greenwood Passes Away at Age 71


The Corvette world has lost yet another legend.

Back in the 1970s, the name John Greenwood was as prominent in the Corvette world as the names of Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen are today.

Greenwood and his brother Burt grew up in the home of a General Motors executive who had earlier been a fighter pilot during World War II, so it was no surprise that John first became widely known for his success racing in a Corvette, winning back-to-back SCCA A Production National Championships in the early 1970s.
