High winds blasted western Washington County, Ore., on Monday, with the National Weather Service reporting a top gust of 55 mph at 12:45 p.m. in northwest Forest Grove.
Go ahead and admit it. You may be too old to push toy cars in the dirt, but you still think Hot Wheels Corvettes are pretty cool.
So what would you think if that little 1968 Corvette Hot Wheels creation suddenly came to life as a full-blown, able-to-be-parked-in-your-own-driveway model?
Well, dream no longer.
The recent news over GM’s latest trademark filing for “Corvette E-Ray” has many speculating about the future of an electric or hybrid Corvette. One man who has weighed in with his two cents is Car and Driver’s Technical Director Don Sherman who has been writing about Corvettes since forever and is the owner of a 1967 big block.

With all the speculation about a possible mid-engine Corvette finally becoming a reality, General Motors has thrown a curve at the rumor mill.
According to Chris Doan Automotive, GM recently filed two trademarks (numbers 86850510 and 86850500) that have fueled speculation the company is considering some type of an electrified version of the Corvette.

Forty classic Corvettes are slated to go across the auction block early next year, and there’s likely to be a new owner for each of them since they’re all being offered at no reserve!
The Corvettes, ranging from 1957 through 1975 models, are part of a collection of more than 100 cars from the Tom Falbo Collection that will be sold to the highest bidder during a sale conducted by Leake Auction Company in Oklahoma City in February.
Despite having no one behind the wheel, a classic Corvette still managed to be involved in a deadly crash in Arkansas on Friday morning.
What appears to be a 1956 or 1957 Corvette (white with red coves) was being hauled westbound on I-30 in an enclosed trailer behind a 2015 Ford pickup when the truck left the right side of the roadway and ran into a tree.

Here’s an old video that just resurfaced on Carbuzz.com showing us how each of the first six generations of Corvettes behaves in the wind tunnel.
While the C2 and C3 Corvettes look slippery and did perform better than the C1 in the wind tunnel, aerodynamics weren’t really a buzzword when they originally were designed.
