[ACCIDENT] Walk Around of a C7 Corvette Stingray Hit by a Drunk Driver

If there is any behavior behind the wheel of an automotive that is the scourge of our society, it’s the practice of driving while intoxicated. We’ve share more than few stories of Corvettes being hit by drunk drivers along with the damage caused by owners who were behind the wheel of their Corvettes when they shouldn’t have been.

The amount of lives and property damage that could be saved by simply handing the keys to someone else is staggering with some estimates of the costs of driving drunk ranging to more than 10,000 lives and $130+ billion each year.

So with that being said, we are sharing this video of a Corvette owner walking around and checking out the damage to his car after it was recently hit by a drunk driver.

2014 Corvette Stingrays Recalled for Misaligned Fuel Fill Pipe

Chevrolet issued another recall notice in February pertaining to the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The recall affects certain Corvette Stingrays that may have been built with an out-of-position “anti-siphon” grid within the fuel fill pipe. That grid may move over time and become located from slightly deeper in the fuel fill pipe to totally dislodged from the pipe and move to the bottom of the fuel tank.

Dealers are instructed to replace the fuel tank fill pipe and if necessary, inspect the fuel tank for the dislodged anti-siphon grid.

Car & Driver magazine is, and has been for many years, one of the top car magazines, with a history of colorful characters (David E. Davis and Brock Yates spring to mind) and outrageous comparison articles (Pontiac GTO vs. Ferrari GTO and the GMC Syclone vs. Ferrari 348ts, to mention just two). They never seem to pass up a chance to tip over the sacred cows of the automotive world.

We weren’t too surprised then when we heard of their latest, and maybe the ultimate, comparison test — a stock 2014 Corvette Stingray vs. the arctic blast of old man winter. This was not just a run-of-the-mill cold start test. You see, C & D’s editorial headquarters are in beautiful downtown Ann Arbor, Mich. and last Friday Michigan was the coldest state in the country. Ann Arbor had an overnight low of -30°F, which was just shy of the -44°F low at the North Pole!

NADA Report: 2014 Corvette Stingray Retains Nearly 85 Percent of MSRP Value

As if the exotic styling, powerhouse performance, and impressive interior weren’t enough to convince you to buy a new Corvette Stingray, here’s another more practical reason.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe 1LT Automatic finished No. 1 for retaining the most value among all-new or heavily revised 2014 Model Year mainstream vehicles.

That’s the word from NADA Used Car Guide analysts in their final vehicle retention value report for 2014.

And it wasn’t even close.

[PICS] The Corvettes at the 2014 SEMA Show

Ever since attending our first SEMA show, we’ve been hooked. And it’s not hard to see why either. There’s a ton of Corvette eye candy waiting to be seen with a different take on the car at just about every booth. Then tie in the cool new Corvette-related products, hot booth girls and the excitement of Las Vegas and that just about sums up what SEMA is all about.

Armed with our trusty Canon DSLR, we went hunting for Corvettes at the 2014 SEMA show and by our count, came up nearly 70 different cars ranging from a 1958 restomod to the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
