Just a string of coincidences or a guiding hand from above?

You decide.

Dawn Hughes grew up in a family that loved Corvettes. In fact, for years her dad drove a 1964 Sting Ray convertible that he loved, but he eventually had to sell the car.

But not before he passed on his love of Corvettes to Dawn. In fact, she saved all she could for years to get one of her own. During what turned out to be their last conversation about Corvettes, her dad smiled and said, “I want to be there when you get it.”

Chevrolet has long wanted the Corvette to be accepted overseas.

Watch The Stig Thrash a Corvette Stingray Around Top Gear's Test Track

Last week on the BBC’s Top Gear, we got to see the C7 Corvette Stingray make its first appearance on the British automotive show where it was featured for nearly 10 minutes.

The Velocity Yellow Stingray was put through its paces by co-host Richard Hammond and then it was compared and reviewed against the Porsche Cayman GTS. Of course, no Top Gear appearance is complete without seeing how the car would place on the leaderboard when driven by ace test driver “The Stig”.

While the TV version showed a split screen between the cars while the lap was being run, Top Gear has released the full video of the Corvette Stingray’s individual lap by The Stig.

2014 Corvette Stingray Beats Arctic Blast of Old Man Winter

by Bruce Troxell on February 26, 2015

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!

[PICS] C7 Corvette Stingray Rides on Classic Five-Spoke HRE Wheels

We know that the Chevrolet Corvette has certain design points that are hallmarks of the model, yet look closely and you will also pick up certain design elements that are carried throughout the Chevrolet brand. One of the design hallmarks of a Chevrolet is the inclusion of five-spoke wheels. Whether it’s a Corvette Stingray, a Silverado pickup truck or a Chevrolet Cruze, most likely it comes from the factory riding on five-spoke wheels.

It’s also known that Corvette owners like to personalize their rides and one of the fastest and easiest ways to give your Corvette a new look is with a set of custom wheels. When it comes to Corvettes, HRE Wheels knows that sometimes owners want their wheels to have a little more bling, yet they want to stay with the classic stock look. If that’s how you feel, check out this Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray riding on HRE’s RS105 forged wheels which feature the classic five-spoke design.
