Velocity’s Car Crazy this week will feature the immense car collection of Ken Lingenfelter. You’ll recognize Ken Lingenfelter as the owner of aftermarket superpower Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. The episode of Car Crazy, hosted by Barry Meguiar, debuts Monday, September 14th on Discovery’s Velocity channel.
Today we bring you yet another low-mileage 1978 Corvette.
Way back when the ‘Vette was celebrating its 25th anniversary and I was still a teenager, some folks got the idea that they would buy one – or more – of these “special” Corvettes and hang on to them to sell for a war pension sometime in the future.
Here’s a case in point.
The Holley Performance Products LS Fest at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park can go on as slated this weekend, according to a ruling by the Warren County Code Enforcement Board.
But after that event, the park must shut down events until a sound study is finished and the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County has reviewed and approved a new motorsports park development plan.
Car and Driver just held their annual Lightning Lap competition for 2015 and according to the results, the 2015 Corvette Z06 not only won its class, but dominated the entire competition by finishing fastest overall. Not only that, the Corvette Z06 was so fast that in the nine years of Car and Driver’s Lightning Laps, only one other car has finished faster.
One of our favorite things to do at the major car shows is to wander the venue checking out all of the vanity plates adorning the various Corvettes in attendance. Our latest installment of Corvette vanity plates comes to you straight from Corvettes at Carlisle. This year’s Carlisle was the 2nd largest ever and we came up with a grandiose collection of vanity plates for your viewing pleasure.
We’re not sure what jurisdiction the Ministry of Economy and Commerce in Doha, Qatar has over American cars.
We’re not even sure how many 2005 to 2007 Corvettes are on the roads of Qatar, a small country next to Saudi Arabia on the coast of the Persian Gulf.
Nevertheless, The Ministry of Economy and Commerce announced Monday that it is recalling those Corvettes “due to a defect in the work of front lighting.”
We just finished watching a video of the insane reactions from passengers who are blown away by the insane acceleration of the $120,000 electric Tesla Model S EV in Insane Mode.
We have to admit it looks like fun to drive – or just ride in – a Model S EV.
Instantly going from 0 to 60 in a little over 3 seconds is enough to cause some folks to let out more than a few colorful words.
We’ve always been impressed with the work that comes from German tuner GeigerCars who specialize in tuning American cars, but their latest work on a C7 Corvette Z06 may be among their best yet. The stock 650 horsepower Corvette is already a fantastic blank canvas straight from Bowling Green, but check out Geiger’s power upgrades and the beautiful use of carbon fiber over the car as well.
Last weekend at the National Corvette Museum’s 21st Anniversary Celebration, the three new inductees to the Corvette Hall of Fame were honored. This year’s inductees were Herb Fishel in the category of Racing, Rick Hendrick in the category of Enthusiast, and Russ McLean in the category of GM/Chevrolet.
For each of the inductees, the NCM prepares a special video showcasing the inductee’s story and how their love of Corvettes led them to becoming a member of the Corvette Hall of Fame. Here is the video for Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick.
