Here’s an interesting Corvette currently listed on Sacramento’s Craigslist. A first year Corvette ZR-1 with just over 80,000 miles that on the outside looks pretty good. But take a closer look under the hood and and inside the cabin and you would think the car should have double those miles.
I might be little late to this show, but apparently there is a young lady on the power wheels scene with some mad driving skills. A quick search of YouTube for little Lila Kalys Sky shows several videos of the young drifting sensation driving the wheels off her Corvette.
This quick video where she is wearing her sunglasses and striking a pose is our favorite.
Here’s a special message from Mark at the Dream Giveaway Garage with two special guests, a 1967 L71 427/435 Corvette Sting Ray and a 2015 Lingenfelter Corvette Z06.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of months, you should know that tonight is the premiere of the seventh Star Wars movie called “The Force Awakens”. I was nine years old when my mom took me to see the original Star Wars movie in 1977. For the record, she took me not once but twice which confirms today how awesome of a mom she was!
If Corvette is America’s Favorite Sports Car, then Star Wars could definitely be called America’s favorite sci-fi movie franchise. Both Corvettes and Star Wars are embedded in America’s pop culture like no other car and movie is and we are always entertained when the iconic characters and themes from the movies crossover into our Corvette hobby.
So with today being #StarWarsTheForceAwakens Day across America’s social media platforms, we thought we would get in the act and share a gallery of 22 Star Wars themed Corvette images. Okay, for the record, there are only 21 Star Wars/Corvette images we came up with so we threw in a photo of Mark Hamill in Corvette Summer as a bonus picture.
The National Corvette Museum’s appeal of a $100-a-day fine won’t be heard until the new year arrives.
Tuesday, Warren District Court Judge John Brown delayed a case update until Tuesday, Jan. 5 at 9 a.m. in the NCM appeal of the fine imposed on its Motorsports Park for not having a certificate of occupancy.
The fine was issued by the Warren County Code Enforcement Board on Sept. 11, two days after a hearing in which residents near the park complained about the noise levels being created by activities at the park. The code enforcement board said the fine would be imposed until a revised detailed development plan was submitted by the NCM and approved by the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County, which would lead to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy.
The code enforcement board originally issued a citation against the motorsports park on Aug. 20, with only a fixed $100 fine issued at that time.
The NCM, in its appeal, argues that the code enforcement board overstepped the bounds of that original fine when it then issued the $100-a-day fine in September and the other demands surrounding it. The Museum claims that the board acted “arbitrarily, erroneously and cannot place a lien on NCM property until the fine is paid and the certificate of occupancy is obtained.” Also being argued by the NCM is the board’s authority not to permit motorsports park events after Sept. 13.
Named in the NCM appeal are Warren County Judge-Executive Mike Buchanon; Warren County Attorney Amy Milliken; Alan Stonex, code enforcement board chairman; Josh Moore, code enforcement board director; Steve Hunter, executive director of the planning commission; Megan Mooney, administrative group manager of the planning commission; and Frank “Hamp” Moore, planning commission attorney.
In a separate related case, Warren Circuit Judge John Grise on Monday set a jury trial for Nov. 1, 2016 to consider possible monetary damages for Clark Circle homeowners because of the vehicle noise coming from the motorsports park. Earlier, Grise had denied a temporary restraining order requested by Residents Against Motorsports Park Track Noise LLC asking for the park to be closed down.
Here is a report regarding the noise case brought by the neighbors of the Motorsports Park which was shown on WBKO-TV:

We’ve heard of custody battles over children and even pets in times of divorce.
Now the fight has extended to a car, at least in one Alabama split-up.
“May the Force be with you” carries new meaning when you’re behind the wheel of this tribute car to tag/star-wars/”>Star Wars created by Hot Wheels.
Check out the latest edition of Jay Leno’s Garage to see the real version of Hot Wheels’ Darth Vader car that’s actually a drivable vehicle based on a C6 Corvette. Jay even takes it for a spin, pointing out that some people in Los Angeles didn’t even notice – too busy on their cell phones!
