Larry the Cable Guy’s Only in America TV show recently stopped in Bowling Green, Kentucky where he filmed a segment at the Corvette assembly plant. Larry proves that he wouldn’t be a good addition to the local labor force as we watch him touch a newly painted door and struggle with putting together a set of seat belts.
Here is the cover of Car and Driver’s April 2012 Corvette where they name the 2014 Chevy Corvette as one of 25 Cars Worth Waiting For. The C7 Corvette illustration shown on the cover looks to be nearly identical to infamous Jalopnik renderings from last November.
This rare Corvette racer is one of just 10 “big tank” Corvettes assembled in 1960. At the 12 hours of Sebring that year the “Race Rat” won its class, finished 16th overall, and was the only Corvette to finish in the top 25. It’ll cross the block on March 9th, 2012 at Gooding and Company’s Amelia Island sale.
Road & Track magazine has been testing Corvettes ever since the first one was built nearly 60 years ago.

This is Lydia. She began life as a basic 1964 Corvette coupe and was transformed into the finely sculptured piece of art you see here by B Rod or Custom of Knoxville, TN. Lydia was another one of our other favorites from this years’ Autorama in Detroit.
We got the new sales figures for February from General Motors yesterday and it looks as though Corvette Sales have rebounded from the dismal 629 Corvettes sold in January. In February, 927 Corvettes were delivered to new owners. This is slightly down from 2011’s 955 Corvettes sold. For the year, sales are running -7.2% off of 2011 with 1,556 total deliveries so far in 2012.
