A Thursday afternoon crash of a classic C2 Corvette into a tree left an unidentified man in serious condition in Lunenberg, Mass.

A string of tornadoes tracked across the states of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota on Friday. The twister that ripped through Moville, Iowa early Friday evening was reported to be at least a mile wide. This picture from a storm chaser named Jeff Piotrowski shows an early C1 Corvette that was picked up and thrown a quarter mile away from its home.
Corvette enthusiasts have known for years that the car can transport its owner to a magical world like no other.
Peter Haeckl became such a traveler many years ago even though he was thousands of miles away from the United States, living in his native Germany.

One of the jolly chaps over at Top Gear recently got his hands on a C1 Corvette as Richard Hammond spent some quality time behind the wheel of a red on red 1958 convertible.
