General Motors Tuesday showed off their restoration progress on the 1 millionth Corvette which fell into the National Corvette Museum sinkhole in February 2014. This is the first time the car has been seen by the public since it left the museum in April of this year. They plan to have all of the work completed in time to return it to the NCM for their 21st birthday celebration Labor Day weekend.
Much has been written in the press about the interiors of Corvettes prior to the C7 having materials that were not up to the quality level of the competition. If you’re happy with the performance of your C6 — and you should be because the car is no slouch either on the road or at the track — but you’d like to upgrade to the latest snazzy interior, Carlex Design has introduced its Yellow Line interior for the C6 Corvette that may be what you are looking for.
Remember that C5 Corvette Z06 that did a burnout so awesome that the brakes caught on fire? We figured Matt Einarsson was the owner of the car after seeing a couple more videos featuring the same C5 Z06s in his youtube timeline.
Matt reached out to us on our facebook page and gave us a heads up on another video featuring his Corvette Z06 in an SCCA sanctioned RallyCross – which is pretty much an autocross held on dirt. Matt shows no fear in driving his Z06 off-road and the car is more than capable in handling the terrain.
The factory-backed Corvette C7.Rs aren’t the only Corvettes to tackle La Sarthe this weekend for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The French racing team Larbre Competition are enjoying their 23rd appearance at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and this year they will be driving the No.50 Corvette C7.R known as the “French American” in the GTE Amateur Class.
This is the same C7.R chassis the No.3 Corvette C7.R drove to a class win at the Rolex Daytona 24 Hour race in January. Larbre Competition also drove the car at the 12 Hours of Sebring in March and the team now has its sights set on the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
It was meant to be. How else can you describe it?
Terry Dietrich was born in 1953, the same year that the first Corvette rolled out of the factory.
That coincidence sparked a love affair for the Corvette that ultimately led to her decision as a 19-year-old to buy a brand new Corvette Stingray in 1972.
Today is Monday and for us that means it is time to go to work on creating our weekly Midyear Monday gallery. Today’s mega gallery features 31 Corvettes produced from 1963 to 1967.

Two teenage girls escaped death Sunday afternoon in their white C3 Corvette convertible after an 18-wheeler rolled over the classic sports car in Redmond, Oregon!
It definitely shows how tough the old Corvette was built.
Take a look at the photos, and you’ll have to wonder how the passenger was transported to St. Charles Redmond Hospital, where she was treated and then released.
With just 300 of the first-year Corvettes produced back in 1953, it’s always a big deal in these modern times when one goes up for sale.
We have written about a couple of 1953 Corvettes seeking new owners in the past few months, and there was recently a listing was added on eBay for a first year Corvette with the VIN sequence number of #071.
Unfortunately, in the time that we saw the ad for the 1953 Corvette on Friday to this morning when we are ready to publish our article, the auction was ended early.
Drivers, crew, engineers focused on earning eighth class win since 2001
LE MANS, France (June 8, 2015) – Corvette Racing’s chance to write another chapter in sports car racing history is here. For the 16th consecutive season, Corvette Racing has its sights set on the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a two-car effort against the toughest competition in GT racing.
If the 460 horsepower of the standard Corvette Stingray isn’t enough for you, then check out this latest upgrade from a private tuner.
Cordes Performance Racing of Mesa, Ariz., says its improvements to the C7 Stingray are designed around drivability, not just upping the horsepower figures to look more impressive.
