[PICS] The Corvette Vanity Plates of Bloomington Gold 2015


We took some time during last weekend’s Bloomington Gold at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to assemble our latest installment of Corvette vanity plates.

Would the artist that rendered this C8 Corvette Zora ZR1 please set forward! Because your render of the rumored mid-engine Corvette is one of the best we’ve seen yet. We found this posted on Facebook and seaching BUZZART has led us nowhere, at least when it comes to automotive designs, so if you’re out there, let us know!

The rendered C8 Corvette is part of a trio of images, first showing the C7 Corvette Stingray and then evolving into what the next generation Corvette might look like in a mid-engine configuration.

Legendary Corvette Racer and Racecar Builder John Greenwood Passes Away at Age 71


The Corvette world has lost yet another legend.

Back in the 1970s, the name John Greenwood was as prominent in the Corvette world as the names of Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen are today.
