[VIDEO] Corvette Owner Charged After Donuts and Burnout were Captured on Video

Those ubiquitous video cameras continue to get people in trouble.

In this case, 18 seconds of fame is getting a 25-year-old Millersville, Md., in a heap of trouble, as Sheriff Buford T. Justice might put it.

Harry Matthew Huntsman faces six traffic charges after he was caught on video doing doughnuts and other apparently illegal things in the middle of the highway near 94th and Coastal Highway in Ocean City, Md., on May 16.

One of the most supportive voices for the National Corvette Museum and its new Motorsports Park has long been the Bowling Green Daily News.

Over the past two-plus decades, the newspaper has devoted many pages of coverage about the museum and its activities, including the Motorsports Park. Sometimes that includes the negative, though, as in a story last week about some of the residents being upset with the noise levels being generated by the new park’s activities.

When Jan Magnussen’s throttle stuck on the Porsche Curves at Le Mans last Thursday sending his No.63 Corvette C7.R into the wall, the resulting damage was significant enough to cause Corvette Racing to withdraw the car from race at Le Mans. Now we are learning that the Corvette won’t be ready for the upcoming TUDOR race at Watkins Glen later this month either.

The good news is that Larbre Competition will be loaning Corvette Racing their C7.R for the six hour race on June 28th.

Two people inside a blue C4 Corvette escaped serious injury after being hit head-on by an alleged drunk driver in a white four-door sedan in Fountain Hills, Arizona on Sunday afternoon.

Both cars erupted into flames after the crash, but fortunately bystanders helped get everyone out of the vehicles before further tragedy struck.

[VIDEO] Regular Car Reviews: The C4 1988 Corvette

How about another classic Corvette video review by the guys at Regular Car Reviews? This time they have set their sights on the C4 generation and in particular, the 1988 Corvette.

A Regular Car Review is exactly that and the show has featured Corvettes before with reviews of a C3 1979 Corvette, a C6 2008 Corvette and the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The show even produced a review of Corvettes at Carlisle so if you’ve ever attended, you’ll want to catch that one again.

And just a quick warning. Some of the language used may not be safe for work environments. So please take that into consideration when watching the video below.

You Can be the Champ in Sylvester Stallone's Custom 1968 Corvette

Back in October 2009, we told you about a custom 1968 Corvette on our Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Results post.

Then we showed you a photo of the new owner cruising Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Turned out to be the legendary Sylvester Stallone, who proved to be the high bidder via telephone, shelling out a whopping $198,000 back then for the 510/660 hp roadster.

Corvette and Four other GM Vehicles Tops on Consumer Reports 'Most American' List

If you looked up the definition of “Made in America” in the dictionary, you might think you’d find a picture of a Chevrolet Corvette.

After all, how much more American of a car is there than the ‘Vette?

In this case, the facts would back you up.

According to research by Consumer Reports, the Corvette tied for first place in their listing of the top ten 2015 models with the most American parts.

Corvettes on eBay:  Untitled 1996 Corvette Grand Sport with 480 Miles

When it comes to Corvette icons, one of the most historic names has been Grand Sport.

After a long hiatus after the original five 1963 Grand Sports were secretly produced by Zora and crew, the name lay in rest until the end of the C4 generation when Chevy revived it for one year in 1996. Then with the C6, Chevy brought it back from 2010 to 2013, turning the Grand Sport into sort of a “Z06 Lite” and proving that the name still carried clout as that version dominated sales of the Corvette during those four years.

Most C4 Corvettes don’t get much respect in the market these days, but for fans of that generation, the Grand Sport (at least the convertible version) is probably the best investment you can make right now – perhaps better than the legendary ZR-1.

And right now on eBay, you can buy what looks to be a great example of a Grand Sport Coupe that is essentially a brand new Corvette with just 479 miles showing on the odometer.

[VIDEO] Optima's Search for the Ultimate Street Car Visits the NCM Motorsports Park

The OPTIMA Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car made a stop earlier this month at the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park in Bowling Green. This is one of the eight events that culminates in the 2015 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in November.

If you’re not familiar with the event, drivers compete in variety of activities including an autocross and a road course. The NCM Motorsports Park offers both and so it became the third stop on the 2015 schedule.
