From our Corvette Images Tumblr comes this awesome GIF from Discovery Channel’s Fast N Loud featuring a 1967 doing some 360s in the middle of the road. I can only wonder what the people in the minivan were thinking after seeing that.

Long Forgotten Corvettes Left to Die in Upstate New York

We’ve all got our childhood memories of Corvettes.

For instance, I remember a fellow who ran the local feed and seed store in my hometown, pulling into the grocery store where I worked as a teenager in a brand new silver 1974 Corvette.

Man, I thought he had the ultimate car back then! While some folks would label the mid-1970s as a bad time for Corvette, for me, they’re still as beautiful as the day they were made.

With attendance and revenue soaring over last year, thanks to the sinkhole in February that swallowed eight classic cars, the National Corvette Museum Board of Directors decided today to pursue keeping a smaller portion of the hole open, pending further study.

The board had considered two other options: filling the sinkhole and returning the Skydome to its previous condition, or keeping the entire sinkhole as it is.

The option the board chose seems to be a good compromise for all sides.

Over the weekend, we featured a video from XCAR that was essentially a look at the C2 Corvette from the perspective of those in Europe. Here we have a video first published late last year of a 1966 427 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe in Hong Kong. The classic Corvette has been converted to right-hand-drive and also has fixed Plexiglas headlights.

The video is in English and the cool Sting Ray gets the walk-around treatment before getting on the roads of Hong Kong. A pretty neat setting to see American Muscle.

DETROIT (June 25, 2014) – It’s only about an hour’s flight from Detroit to Watkins Glen International. But over the years, the two have been worlds away from the perspective of Corvette Racing.

America’s leading production-based racing team gets its first shot this weekend at the famed road course during the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen.
