Each year at Detroit’s Autorama, cars being shown for the very first time compete for hot rodding’s top award, The Ridler Award. Before being named the Ridler winner, finalists are first selected into The Great 8 prior to final voting. This year two Corvettes were included in The Great 8 including this amazing midyear coupe called the 1966 Split Ray.
We’ve posted our share of Corvette vanity plates over years and I’ve always said that they usually fall into two categories. A good vanity plate either describes the car or it describes the owner.

We were just talking about Genovation GXE a few weeks back when we learned that CEO Andrew Saul had purchased a 2017 Corvette Grand Sport that would be the next Corvette to receive Genovation’s electric conversion.

It’s Monday, my favorite day of the week!
Okay, so I hate Monday’s like most of you but it is the one day of the week where we salute one of our favorite Corvette body styles with a special photo gallery we like to call Midyear Monday! Today’s Corvette image gallery features 46 Corvettes built between 1963-1967.
If you want to see your Corvette here, just email a photo or two to [email protected] and we’ll add it to our archive.
Last weekend marked our annual pilgrimage to Detroit’s Cobo Center for the 65th annual Detroit Autorama. Here in the upper Midwest, Autorama marks the unofficial kick off to the show car season. Thousands of enthusiasts that have been cooped up all winter long finally get to unleash their pent up car show energy over the course of 3 days in late February.
John Oates of the mega-popular duo Hall & Oates from the 1970s and 1980s filmed a sizzle reel with Nashville-based Gamma Blast Studios that hopefully will appear on the History Channel and/or Travel Channel.
Another variation on the “If anything happens to you, can I have your Corvette” theme.
