The National Corvette Museum recently delivered their a 2016 Corvette with the new Admiral Blue exterior, the first R8C Museum Delivery for the new 2017 color that got a start a bit earlier than normal. That Admiral Blue Corvette was ordered by Scott Sloan of Battle Creek, Michigan through our friend Mike Furman at Criswell Chevrolet in Gaithersburg, MD.
Corvettes have always been noted for delivering high performance at a bargain price.
The sixth-generation ZR1 – the most powerful Corvette ever made…until the appearance of the 2015 Z06 – is definitely living up to that standard, especially these days.
We’ve been considering the purchase of a new C7 ourselves, but every once in a while, we get a wild hair and start searching the Web to see just how low 2009-13 ZR1s have plummeted. Maybe, just maybe…
When I first starting writing CorvetteBlogger ten years ago, I remember reading articles on the major auto blogs about work that was being done at Hennessey Performance Engineering and there would always be a few comments from those who said that founder John Hennessey’s business dealings were less than stellar.
Over the years those sort of the accusations seemed to fade away as Hennessey continually self-promoted their work with quality videos of various Corvettes and other performance cars undergoing dyno or performance testing. Our favorite was the new C7 2014 Corvette Stingray breaking 200 mph on a Texas toll-road with the blessing of the Texas State Police.
As of Tuesday though, our opinions have changed as Jalopnik published an expose on the Texas-based tuning shop and as we said in the title, it isn’t pretty.

DETROIT (June 1, 2016) – The world’s toughest endurance race beckons once again for Chevrolet and Corvette Racing as the two-car squad aims to write another chapter in its endurance racing history book. The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the marquee event for Corvette Racing each year; the results since 2001 bear out how important the event is to Chevrolet.
Lingenfelter is a name that has come to symbolize high-performance.
A Florida car collector and hot-rodder named Bob Hunnicutt has known that first-hand for nearly 30 years.
Back in 1988, Hunnicutt and a famous tuner friend, Jim Formato, decided to upgrade the performance on a stock 240HP 1985 Corvette.

The topic of a mid-engine Corvette has heated up again recently so it was quite timely that we stumbled across this project car on the interwebs last week. Simply put, this is possibly the wildest custom Corvette we’ve ever seen. We just wish there was more of it left to take in.
You never know what you might find on Craigslist.
Take, for example, the case of “SERIAL #X53L” that appeared in a Craigslist ad in the Tampa Bay, Fla., area some five years ago.
Some lucky person could have bought this car for less than $1,000 – some have speculated for just $700.
Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top Corvette seller.
Mike entertains us this week with a number of new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s delivered to customers. One of the deliveries was for a 2016 Corvette Z06 with the Admiral Blue exterior. According to Mike, this should be a fairly rare color on 2016s. And speaking of Admiral Blue, make sure you see the comparison of the C7 Admiral Blue next to a C6 Le Mans Blue exterior.
