[GALLERY] Corvette Police Cars (44 Corvette photos)


How do you make any year or model of Corvette even more bad-ass than they already are? Put them in the hands of Johnny Law!

Corvettes have a long history of being used by police departments everywhere from DARE anti-drug show cars to being used as pursuit vehicles. Whatever the reason, nothing screams faster than fast than a Corvette with a police livery and an emergency light bar flashing.

So for a special Friday image gallery, we present these really cool Corvette police cars. Do you have a favorite Corvette in this week’s gallery? Let us know and be sure to share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

[STOLEN] 1996 Corvette Grand Sport Stolen in Suffolk England


Twenty years ago, Chevrolet closed out the C4 Corvette generation with a special run of 1,000 Corvette Grand Sports – 810 Coupes and 190 Convertibles. These Admiral Blue Corvettes are very distinctive with the white full length body stripe, Black Wheels and Red Hash Marks on the fender and they are a fairly rare sighting today on the streets unless you go to one of the bigger national shows.

We imagine that spotting a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport in the U.K. is even rarer which makes this story about a stolen Corvette in England newsworthy to Corvette enthusiasts everywhere.

National Corvette Museum Receives Two Corvettes as Donation Gift


The kindness and generosity of Corvette owners is no secret.

Just look at what William (Bill) Engle Jr. – also known as “Sweat Hog” of Albany, N.Y., Ridgewood, N.J., and now Summit, N.Y. – has just done for the National Corvette Museum.

Joining the growing list of enthusiasts who have bequeathed their prized possessions to the Museum, Engle decided to donate his 1967 and 1987 Corvettes to the NCM.

[GALLERY] Vintage Corvette Racers at Indianapolis (44 Corvette photos)


While much of the Corvette racing world was focused on the factory efforts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last weekend, another historic track here in the United States was also in session. The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) was in Indianapolis for the 2015 Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational and so were the vintage Corvette racers.

Our friend Glenn Brown was there to help crew for Jim Glass and his 1965 Corvette and he captured many of the classic Corvettes doing their thing on the track.

[VIDEO] Regular Car Reviews: The C4 1988 Corvette


How about another classic Corvette video review by the guys at Regular Car Reviews? This time they have set their sights on the C4 generation and in particular, the 1988 Corvette.

A Regular Car Review is exactly that and the show has featured Corvettes before with reviews of a C3 1979 Corvette, a C6 2008 Corvette and the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The show even produced a review of Corvettes at Carlisle so if you’ve ever attended, you’ll want to catch that one again.

And just a quick warning. Some of the language used may not be safe for work environments. So please take that into consideration when watching the video below.

Corvettes on eBay:  Untitled 1996 Corvette Grand Sport with 480 Miles


When it comes to Corvette icons, one of the most historic names has been Grand Sport.

After a long hiatus after the original five 1963 Grand Sports were secretly produced by Zora and crew, the name lay in rest until the end of the C4 generation when Chevy revived it for one year in 1996. Then with the C6, Chevy brought it back from 2010 to 2013, turning the Grand Sport into sort of a “Z06 Lite” and proving that the name still carried clout as that version dominated sales of the Corvette during those four years.

Most C4 Corvettes don’t get much respect in the market these days, but for fans of that generation, the Grand Sport (at least the convertible version) is probably the best investment you can make right now – perhaps better than the legendary ZR-1.

And right now on eBay, you can buy what looks to be a great example of a Grand Sport Coupe that is essentially a brand new Corvette with just 479 miles showing on the odometer.
