[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.

[VIDEO] North Texas Viper Club Blows Up a C4 Corvette with Tannerite and a .50 Caliber Machine Gun

Every year at Thanksgiving, we go up to our ancestorial stomping grounds in Southeastern Kentucky for family, food and fun. And sometimes that fun involves blowing up a pumpkin with tannerite, an explosive substance that ignites when shot with a gun.

So when I saw the North Texas Viper club using tannerite to blow up a C4 Corvette, I had to share this even if it involves the death of Corvette at the hands of a rival club. Just a couple ounces of tannerite will completely blow the kingdom come out of a pumpkin so I can only imagine what a larger amount could do to America’s favorite sports car.
