Let’s get this week started right by checking out our Midyear Monday gallery featuring 30 random photos of 2nd generation Corvettes from 1963-1967. If you the 2nd generation Corvette as much as we do, make sure you share this page on Twitter and Facebook.
Checking the news this morning after a long weekend, I found this story on AutoSpies.com proclaiming that Chevrolet isn’t quite done with the C6 generation ZR1 yet. For 2014 and 2015, Chevy will still be offering not only the ZR1 in C6 form, but a special edition that’s been modified to run a 0-60 mph in 2.65 seconds and has a quarter mile time of 9.7 seconds at 140.2 mph.
It’s springtime which means that Corvette owners in the cold zones are beginning to extricate their cars from winter hibernation. That’s usually followed by a serious spring cleaning in preparation for the upcoming summer cruising season. But which product should one use on their ride? We recently tried out Adam’s Total Interior Detailer and the results of our toils await you after the break.
This week on Mobil 1′s The Grid is a video of Tommy Milner showing off his new office, the all new C7.R that made its debut earlier this year at the Rolex Daytona 24 hour. In this video, Tommy gives us a rundown of the changes from C6.R to C7.R and then he takes us into the cockpit for a tour and closer look at the racing technology that is literally at his fingertips.
If you’re in the Florida panhandle region this weekend, come out to Panama City Beach for the Annual Circle City Corvette’s Beach Caravan. The caravan kicks off Friday morning in Dothan, AL with over 100 Corvettes cruising to beach in Panama City. Once in Florida, there will be a welcome party, a Corvette-only car show, seminars with special “Corvette” guests, an auction featuring cool Corvette items and more.
When you think of Monaco, that tiny country perched between France and the Mediterranean Sea, you probably have visions of Formula 1 racing on the street course through the city or James Bond gambling at the Monte Carlo casino. Most likely, a C5 Corvette is farthest from your mind.
But that will change after you watch this video showing a C5 Corvette Convertible cruising the streets and tunnels of the city with a beautiful exhaust note flowing from the aftermarket Corsa exhaust.
