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.

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!

Corvettes on eBay: 1968 Monster Corvette 4x4

A couple of years ago, a buddy of mine sold his 1997 Corvette.

Well, the new owner decided he really wanted a pickup instead of a ‘Vette so he wound up taking a loss a few weeks later and sold it to me to get a truck.

Too bad this unusual creation wasn’t available in 2012. It might have been just the ticket for that unhappy Corvette owner!

Few words make a Corvette collectors ears perk up more than the words “L88” and “auction” used in the same sentence.

The driver of a white C3 Corvette escaped injury Saturday afternoon after being involved as the innocent bystander in a three-vehicle wreck also involving a police car and an SUV in Jacksonville, Fla.

We’ve been fans of the movie franchise since first seeing Mel Gibson and the Ford XB Falcon Interceptor in The Road Warrior back in the 1980’s and while having a fourth installment of the post-apocalyptic car movie called is reason enough to celebrate, we just found out that a C3 Corvette will be one of the weaponized vehicles in film’s reboot.

[STOLEN] Family's 1977 Corvette Stolen from Private Garage in Maryland

A piece of Charles Estelle’s life is missing.

Now, he’s just hoping someone out there will be able to help him bring his prized 1977 Corvette back home.

The orange Corvette, in the process of being restored and “probably about two months from being road ready,” according to Estelle, has been in his life since he was just 7 or 8 years old. That’s when his dad bought the car. Charles was so small, in fact, that he had to sit on a pillow back then just to see out the windows.
