The folks at Jalopnik run a regular feature called “Nice Price or Crack Pipe,” which aims to get its viewers’ thoughts on certain, uh, different vehicles.
Recently, the site asked its viewers to rate this, uh, different 1976 Corvette Stingray that to some may represent all that was wrong with that decade of styling excess.

Great news for Indy 500 Corvette pace car fans.

Last Friday at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash Event, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter and Product Manager Harlan Charles delivered their 2014 Corvette Stingray seminar to a capacity crowd. With so much information coming out about the new Corvette, the seminar lasted nearly two full hours!
Like previous years, the seminar also gave us the highlights and some final numbers on the current model year (2013) before delving into the new Stingray content. And because pricing for the Stingray was announced just an hour before the event started, we get to hear the Corvette Team’s first official comments on the manufacturers suggested retail pricing of $51,995 for the 1LT Coupe and $56,995 for the 1LT Convertible.
The LT nameplate has a long and storied performance history for Corvette and General Motors.
Looks like a new chapter could well be added by the seventh generation of the ‘Vette.
A 1967 Corvette that has a special place in the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans has been chosen to be the poster art for this year’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion poster.
That car is the 1967 Corvette No. 9 raced by Corvette legends Dick Guldstrand and Bob Bondurant at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it hit speeds of 170mph-plus down Mulsanne Straight to take a big lead before mechanical woes forced it off the track. Despite that disappointment, the two drivers had already become folk heroes to the locals by driving the car from the airport near Paris to the track.
