Enthusiasts at the 2013 Corvette Museum C4 ZR1 gathering that starts today and runs through Sunday in Bowling Green, Kentucky will have a chance to see and hear inside information about their cars.
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s Chief Engineer, Graham Behan, will make two presentations during the annual event.
In the early 1990′s Callaway pretty much owned the Corvette tuner market thanks in part due to their RPO B2K option offered by GM. To compete with the boys from Old Lyme, Lister of North America built a select number of Corvettes to challenge Callaway’s dominance. Coming up in April, you’ve got a chance to own the very first Lister Corvette produced at Mecum’s Houston auction.
Usually when we think of TV shows about performance cars, we think about heart-stopping performance, custom paint jobs, or an electronics-love interior.
Well, a new TV show called Strippers: Cars for Cash on the UK’s National Geographic Channel takes a very different approach to that formula.
Back in the fall of 1988, I bought a shiny new red 1989 Corvette coupe from a dealership in Calhoun, Ga.
It was my pride and joy for a couple of years before other priorities led to selling it with about 15,000 miles on the odometer.
Not surprisingly, it was literally a trip back in time when this story appeared recently in the LA Times about a 1989 red Corvette convertible that has just been found after being stolen from a new car lot in 1989 – and hidden ever since.
Corvette enthusiasts are pretty serious about America’s sports car, but car customizer Mark Towle really takes his love for his favorite car to a whole ‘nother level.
You see, when he was a child, Towle watched the famous Japanese cartoon show Speed Racer religiously. “I’ve seen all 53 episodes,” he says, “including one that was never aired; it was supposed to be the first episode of the next season, but the show got canceled.”
All grown up now, as the owner of his own car customizing business, Towle’s living a childhood dream – making his living by building replicas of Speed Racer’s car, the Mach 5, which start about at $72,500. Not bad for the ultimate boy racer, huh?
