When it comes to popping the question to your main squeeze there are two schools of thought. The first says do it in a small intimate way that’s special to the 2 of you. The second school of thought is go big or go home. If your plans fall into the latter category, the bar has just been raised thanks to Steve White.
The kindness and generosity of Corvette owners is no secret.
Just look at what William (Bill) Engle Jr. – also known as “Sweat Hog” of Albany, N.Y., Ridgewood, N.J., and now Summit, N.Y. – has just done for the National Corvette Museum.
Joining the growing list of enthusiasts who have bequeathed their prized possessions to the Museum, Engle decided to donate his 1967 and 1987 Corvettes to the NCM.
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.
In this week’s dispatch, Mike gets to check out Donald Trump’s new $500,000 limo which was on the same Plycon auto transport as the Stingray going to one of his customers. A previous customer trades a black 2015 base Stingray for a Shark Gray 2015 Z51 Stingray coupe with some additional options, and another customer gets a first look at his new Corvette while its traveling down the production line in Bowling Green.
Happy Birthday, America!!
Nothing is more patriotic than seeing America’s favorite sportscar wrapped in the greatest flag the world has ever known. Here’s an all-American salute to Corvettes on Independence Day featuring 43 Corvettes in a random photo gallery that are wearing or are featured with the Stars and Stripes.
It sounds like the sky’s the limit as far as power for the new Corvette Z06.
ProCharger says GM did the hard part coming up with the Z06’s strong forged LT-4 engine, and now ProCharger has created bolt-on, reversible superchargers that has the capability of raising the engine’s standard 650 horsepower to at least 1,600 horsepower!
All we can say is WOW!
GoldSpeed was one of the new driving events at the Bloomington Gold show last weekend in Indianapolis. Attendees had the unique opportunity to ride along in a new Corvette Z06 on a portion of the Indy road course with a professional instructor from the Spring Mountain Performance Driving School.
When Chevrolet first introduced the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the Corvette Museum’s Bash in April, they naturally showed the Coupe version in new Corvette Racing Yellow. But if you read the release notes (or watched our video), you would know that the limited-edition salute to Corvette Racing’s C7.R was also available in Convertible form, and yes Batman, it comes in Black.
At the 2015 Bloomington Gold Corvette show at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Chevrolet showed off their first Black Convertible Z06 C7.R Edition. Thanks to these photos from Travis Raczynski and our friend Corvette Conti who brought these to our attention, we’re able to share the dark side of the new limited edition Corvette.

The notice of violation requiring the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park to cease all construction and events came as a surprise to NCM Executive Director Wendell Strode, who thought all the parties involved had reached an amiable understanding during a public meeting Monday.
Some neighbors of the park have expressed their concern over what they term excessive noise levels being created by the cars there, including at a planning commission meeting two weeks ago.
Since today is ‘Ron Fellows Day’ (but you can still call it Canada Day if you like), we thought a story about a Corvette driver in the Great White North would be an interesting read. Unfortunately, the topic is not a very happy one as it’s an accident report from Western Canada showing a Yellow C6 Corvette Coupe under the rear wheels of a minivan.
On our way back from Bloomington Gold we hit up the 3rd annual Corvettes in the D event held in the shadows of GM’s world headquarters in downtown Detroit. The one day event ran from 9am to 4pm on Sunday June 28th and supported 2 great veterans’ charities.
