Better late than never.
Europeans finally got their first close-up look at the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 at the Geneva Motor Show, which opened to thousands of media members Tuesday.
Since 1992, Mobil 1 motor oil has been the “factory-fill” brand of oil at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green. And if the factory is recommending the use of Mobil 1 oil, then that’s what you should use, right?
So when we heard about this rebate offer on Mobil 1 oil and knowing that many Corvette owners like to service their own rides, we thought it would be worth sharing the news and hopefully you can save a few bucks during the process.
Just a string of coincidences or a guiding hand from above?
Dawn Hughes grew up in a family that loved Corvettes. In fact, for years her dad drove a 1964 Sting Ray convertible that he loved, but he eventually had to sell the car.
But not before he passed on his love of Corvettes to Dawn. In fact, she saved all she could for years to get one of her own. During what turned out to be their last conversation about Corvettes, her dad smiled and said, “I want to be there when you get it.”
Chevrolet has long wanted the Corvette to be accepted overseas.
Well, we don’t know if the sale of one yellow Stingray would qualify as cause for celebration in the halls of General Motors, but CarNewsChina.com – which boasts that it features “Everything About Cars in China” – is sharing a photo of such a car in Shanghai submitted by reader Antoine Chalendard.
Last year during the Corvette Stingray’s rollout, we were able to get our hands on a couple of reports through the year that showed the number of Corvettes sold by the top 100 Corvette dealers. We like to say that knowledge is power and knowing which Chevrolet dealer in your area specializes in selling Corvettes can make the buying process that much easier.
Now we have a final count from 2014 of Corvette sales by the top 50 Chevrolet dealers. Want to know who is selling Corvettes and how many? Read on…
The story behind a Corvette is what makes it stand out in a crowd.
Take this 1960 Corvette, which has had just two very conscientious owners since rolling out of the factory in St. Louis, Mo., not once but twice.
The original owner, a teacher named Ed Graye from West Frankfort, Ill., ordered the car with the “big” 290hp, fuel-injected 283 engine with a three-speed manual because he wanted to drag race it on the streets.
Way back in 2011 the folks at Ridetech took a stock first generation Camaro and, with the help of several aftermarket manufacturers and several of their friends, made it into a Camaro restomod in 48 hours. Now, after everyone associated with that project has caught up on their sleep and has forgotten what sleep deprivation feels like, they are going to do it again—only this time with a stock 1972 Corvette.
General Motors released the monthly sales reports this morning for February 2015. The good news for Corvette fans is that sales are strong with 2,605 new Stingrays and Z06s delivered during the short month. This figure is 6.8% higher than sales reported during February 2014 which saw 2,438 Corvettes delivered.
For the 2015 Calendar Year, Corvette sales total 4,732 for a 0.7% gain over 2014 which was just 33 cars less at 4,699.
One of just 41 Big Tank Corvette Coupes produced in 1965 will be on the block at the Hollywood Wheels Amelia Island Select auction in Florida March 12-15.
This silver over black coupe comes with a rich though dated pedigree, too, including Bloomington Gold Special Collection in 1989 and 1995, Bloomington Certified in 1987, National NCRS Top Flight award in 1993,and Chevy Vettefest Triple Crown award in 2004.
