[VIDEO] Man Turns C6 Corvette into a Full Scale Remote Controlled Car

[VIDEO] Man Turns C6 Corvette into a Full Scale Remote Controlled Car


My three sons have always loved playing with remote control Corvettes, going back to the days of the C5, continuing through the C6 and C7.

The bigger the car, the better, they always told me.

Well, they are absolutely in love with the latest remote control Corvette I found them.

“Cool, dad!” was their first response.

[PICS] MCACN 2015 – 1965 Big Tank Corvette Barn Find Restored

[PICS] Restored Barn Find 1965 Big Tank Corvette Wins Triple Diamond Award at MCACN


One of our favorite Corvettes from last month’s Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals was a fabulous 1965 365 hp black on black 1965 big tank coupe. You may not recognize it now, but it’s the same black on black big tank car we first brought you last summer from Bloomington Gold.

Back then the car was shown in all of its unrestored glory. Years of rust, dirt, and grime covered every inch of the car. It wore big fat fender flares on all four corners and an interesting home center mount exhaust exited the car out back.

Well, this is it! Our final Midyear Monday photo gallery for 2015 features 36 Corvettes built in the mid-1960s – hence the “midyear” moniker which has stuck for all these years.

I’d like to send out a round of thanks to those of you who submitted photos of their beloved Sting Rays for this post. I appreciated the response as it’s a great way to see some of our readers’ rides!

What’s your favorite Corvette in this week’s gallery? Let us know and be sure to share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

A few L88 Corvettes have surfaced around the country in the past few months, but it would be hard to beat this well-documented 1969 example that will be auctioned off during Barrett-Jackson’s 45th Scottsdale auction to be held Jan. 23-31.

Corvettes seem to have a way of hanging around forever – but not always.

Patrons of the Hard Rock Café in West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada back in the mid-1990s saw a red-with-white-coves 1961 Corvette hanging on the wall as a decoration.

With this being the Christmas season, it’s a great time to do a good deed and brighten someone’s day.

Take, for example, the plight of a 48-year-old man named Scott McKenzie, who has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

The Annual Corvette Enthusiast’s Twas the Night Before Christmas 2015

The Annual Corvette Enthusiasts Twas the Night Before Christmas 2015


Ever since we celebrated our first Christmas with our blog in 2005, we’ve posted a special Corvette version of Twas the Night Before Christmas.

Over the last few years, our friend Rick Tavel from Corvetted.com has taken the poem one step further by customizing it so that it references the major Corvette-related events that occurred throughout the year. Unfortunately, Rick has been very sick the last few months and has had to take time away to recuperate. Our prayers are with you, Rick. Get well!

Since this is our 10th anniversary, we’re bringing back the original poem as it was posted it on December 24, 2005. So gather up the children and take a seat next to the big block Vette out in the garage for our annual Corvette Enthusiast’s Night Before Christmas:

A “compact” Corvette, in this case.

High winds blasted western Washington County, Ore., on Monday, with the National Weather Service reporting a top gust of 55 mph at 12:45 p.m. in northwest Forest Grove.

Go ahead and admit it. You may be too old to push toy cars in the dirt, but you still think Hot Wheels Corvettes are pretty cool.

So what would you think if that little 1968 Corvette Hot Wheels creation suddenly came to life as a full-blown, able-to-be-parked-in-your-own-driveway model?

Well, dream no longer.
