Corvette Owners Try to Set Guinness World Record on the Tail of the Dragon


Last weekend was the annual Corvette Expo car show in Tennessee and this year organizers had something special planned for Corvette owners for the Friday night cruise – an attempt to make the Guinness Book of World Records for most Corvettes to run the Tail of the Dragon.

We always hate to hear when a fellow Corvette enthusiast loses his life while enjoying his car.

Let’s all take a minute and think about what we’re doing behind the wheel and be extra cautious.

Sometimes when you run across an old Corvette story, it really makes you wonder about your fellow man – like, what the heck were they thinking! We’ve covered the infamous 1954 ‘Entombed’ Corvette” previously in 2013 when it was offered for sale and for those that have never heard how it got its nickname, it makes for a good tellin’ especially around Halloween.

[PICS] Corvette Museum Delivers First 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition


It’s always great news when you hear that customers are finally getting their hands on a new or special special edition Corvette.

It was back in April 2015 that the Corvette Team first unveiled the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash Event. Now we’ve come full circle with the first R8C Museum Delivery of the special edition Z06.

The NCM’s latest newsletter featured Lifetime members Ron and Jessica Grove of Mohnton, PA and their brand new Corvette. The 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition they picked up was one of the first 10 of the commemorative C7.R Editions available and one of five to go to the NCM for R8C customer deliveries.

We’ve known Ron Grove personally now for a while as he is an active follower of the CorvetteBlogger twitter feed. He’s also a huge fan of Corvette Racing so we are sure that was one of the main reasons he jumped to buy the new special edition car.

We reached out to Ron to congratulate him on the car and he replied “Awesome Z06! A huge step change from my C6 Z06!” That we can imagine! Congratulations again Ron and Jessica and we hope you enjoy your new 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition!

Corvettes on Craigslist: Wrecked and Parked 1965 Corvette


Like most Corvette enthusiasts, I’ve often dreamed of working on a 1965 Sting Ray in my garage, turning a basket case into a shining show car.

While this yellow 1965 Corvette might be the chance for me and my sons to restore a car together, the asking price of $25,000 is enough to scare us away.

[VIDEO] Neighbors File Lawsuit Against the National Corvette Museum


With all the back-and-forth going on between the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park, the City-County Planning Commission, the Code Enforcement Board, and the neighbors near the track, we figured the disagreement would wind up being settled in court.

Thursday night, the Warren County City-County Planning Commission voted unanimously to join the Residents Against Motorsports Park Noise in their lawsuit.

Effingham, Illinois became Corvette Country last month as thousands of Corvettes from 39 states and even foreign countries made the trek to Corvette FunFest at Mid America Motorworks corporate headquarters. The three day show was a huge success judging by the photos we are sharing below.

If you’re like most Corvette enthusiasts, your chest puffed out when the new Z06 ran the second fastest Lightning Lap ever in Car and Driver’s competition.

But then that huge smile likely turned into sobs of disappointment when the same Z06 did not even finish (coming in dead last, obviously) in the Motor Trend Best Driver’s Car competition a few weeks later.

How could Chevy let such a thing happen, you may have asked yourself.

A group of Corvette owners has filed a class action lawsuit against General Motors, alleging that the company is not taking action to correct a problem with the 7.0-liter V8 engine used in the Corvette 427 and Z06 models from 2006 to 2013.

The defect automotive lawsuit claims that GM is aware that the Corvette engines have excessive valve guide wear leading to engine failure and repairs, despite the company advertising the high quality and durability of the engines.
