Thanks to some sleuthing of the US Patent and Trademarks database, the writers over at AutoGuide.com have discovered that last week GM filed a trademark application for ‘Corvette Manta Ray’ for use as “Motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles, engines therefor and structural parts thereof”.
The National Corvette Museum has provided another update on the restoration of the Skydome following last year’s sinkhole which swallowed eight cars. Project Manager Zach Massey is back and shows how far their efforts have come since we last visited the Skydome at the NCM Bash in late April when they were still pouring concrete.

Chevrolet continues to move forward with new technology as its first 2016 cars featuring Apple’s CarPlay have started rolling off the assembly line this month.
And that history-making vehicle was none other than a silver Corvette Z06, featured in photos shared by GM with TechCrunch.
The Corvette joins some pretty exclusive company with CarPlay as the Ferrari FF was the first to feature the Apple system. (The system was available, however, to aftermarket customers through Alpine and Pioneer.)
Back in the day, a lot of car magazines featured C3 Corvettes painted wildly.
The Stingray just seemed to be one of those cars that was perfect for painting that way. We remember one in particular painted red, white and blue with white stars on it.
Now you can take another trip back to the Psychedelic ’70s in this 1971 Corvette Coupe.
The driver of a 1998 Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car had to be pulled from the burning car after a wreck near the Chippewa Township, Pa., entrance ramp onto I-376 on Sunday afternoon.
The driver’s side of the convertible was badly damaged in the fire, though the car was still recognizable as a Indianapolis Pace Car on the passenger side, with its distinctive paint job and wheels .
Despite working two years for a Spanish-language radio station as my first job out of college, speaking Spanish was not a skill I was blessed with. Lucky for me then that mastery of the Spanish language was not needed to decode this new stunt video from Chevrolet Mexico featuring a human cannonball and the new 2015 Corvette Z06.
Late last summer we partnered up with CORSA Performance and Smokey’s Dyno and Performance on our Operation Air Flow project as a way to show some easy ways to get more power out of your Corvette. We began with a CORSA carbon fiber intake on our 2009 C6 and then backed that up with a CORSA Sport performance exhaust system. For Episode 4, we headed back to Smokey’s for a custom ECM tune to help get the most out our freer breathing LS3.
As the C7 Corvette matures into its third year of production, Chevrolet continues to offer new options for Corvette owners to personalize their rides. One of the new options for 2016 is called EFY and it allows you to order your Corvettes with the vents on the hood, side coves and rear to be painted the same color as the rest of the body.
We’ve seen some mods of people painting their vents the same color as the rest of the body but it’s never been something we would do to our C7 Corvette. But for those that want a single color Corvette, you can now order that same look straight from the factory like this Arctic White Corvette Z06 that was shared by our friend Corvette Conti.
We call this a Corvette barn find, but the truth of the matter is that this 1981 Corvette wasn’t parked in a barn. Instead, it’s been stashed behind a lady’s garage since 1996. This craigslist ad shows the damage that can be done to a Corvette from letting it sit outside for years and years. In the end, this one is worth only $900 as a parts car.
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 shares photos from a customer who picked up his Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum. A Blue Corvette Z06 goes to a serviceman and a White Z06 is being delivered to the customer’s door via Plycon Van Lines. Mike also shares photos from the Corvettes on the Bay show he attended last week.
