Detroit’s Scarab Club will be hosting a gallery exhibition called “American Dreaming, Corvette: 7 Generations and Beyond” which will include original drawings and models from General Motors designers between 1952 to 2014.
At the holidays, it’s always nice to hear about a good deed.
Since this is a Corvette blog, it’s even nicer to report the good deeds of a Corvette club in Dallas, Texas.
After hearing that a great-grandmother was scammed out of almost $1,000, the Unique Corvette Club of Dallas-Fort Worth decided to make Christmas brighter for Ola Donalson, revving up their motors to bring money and prayers to her home on Saturday.
Corvette owners know that one of the must-have accessories for their Corvettes is a quality car cover. Car covers come in different blends of material depending on whether they are for indoor use or are designed to protect your Corvette from the elements when parked outdoors, so picking the right Corvette car cover for how it will be used is important.
Like the majority of Corvette owners, my Tuxedo Black 1966 Corvette resides in my garage, so I can go with a lighter material cover as I am more concerned about keeping the dust off the black paint as well as the occasional paw prints from our cat.
A few months back at Corvettes at Carlisle, I was visiting with our friends at Corvette America and we discussed doing a review of their branded ONYX car cover which looked perfect for my needs. So in the mail comes a box from CorvetteAmerica.com and inside that box is the ONYX Corvette Car Cover for the C2 Corvette.
We told you a few days ago about the Corvette “owner” who had to surrender his beloved 1964 Sting Ray because unbeknownst to him, it had actually been stolen from the original owner some 40 years earlier.
Now, an attorney/writer from Michigan named Steve Lehto is giving his take on the unfortunate legalities of such situations in a story just posted on roadandtrack.com.
You always hear about race teams talking about drivers safety but at Corvette Racing, it’s a top priority.
Crashes will always be part of racing and lord knows we’ve seen some bad ones over the years in both the C6.Rs and C7.Rs. Thankfully, our drivers have always been able to walk away to race another day.
Legendary Corvette designers Bill Mitchell, Pete Brock, and Larry Shinoda combined to design the equally legendary Stingray racer concept car in 1959.
That car is now in the GM Design Studio collection.
But now you have a chance to own a visual facsimile of the Stingray racer at a much more reasonable “Buy It Now” price of $59,990 on eBay.
It was back in July that we learned a widebody 1966 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe was going to be one of the featured cars in the 8th “Fast and Furious” movie and that it would be driven by Michelle Rodriguez character, Letty Ortiz.
On Sunday evening just before the Dallas Cowboys/NY Giants football game, the new movie, now titled “The Fate of the Furious”, staged a Times Square takeover and showed the first official trailer from the movie which opens on April 17, 2017
In this week’s gallery, my 1966 Corvette makes an appearance. Want to see your Midyear featured on Midyear Monday? You can send pictures of your C2 Corvette to [email protected] and we’ll schedule it for an upcoming edition.
