[PICS] The 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle Show

[PICS] The 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle Show

Another edition of the Corvettes at Carlisle show has come and gone. Despite the in-climate weather, this show remains a must-attend as there is just so much see and do. In fact, I’d say that a day at Corvettes at Carlisle in the falling rain beats a day sitting behind a desk anytime!

At Corvettes at Carlisle, we walked and walked and walked some more. From the swap meet to the sales corral, from the Chevy Engineers tent on the Manufacturer’s Midway with the new Corvette Z06 to sitting up on the hill with friends and looking at all the remarkable Corvettes parked row after row, we saw it all.

And thanks to our camera, you can catch a glimpse of one of America’s premiere Corvette shows in the gallery below.

[VIDEO] The Burnout Contest at the 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle

One of our favorite events at Corvettes at Carlisle is the Friday afternoon burnout contest. You’re never quite sure who’s going to show up and once the tires start spinning, anything can happen. This year’s event did not disappoint with three contestants in two white C4s and one custom C5 Corvette plus a demonstration from the father-daughter team of Lance and Ella Miller.

We spent last Saturday with over 1 million of our closest friends at the famous Woodward Dream Cruise.

Each year the get together takes place on the Wednesday night prior to the Woodward Dream Cruise and has developed into the main event in what is now a 3-day celebration of Corvette and cars in general.

2003 Corvette Le Mans Safety Car to Cross Russo and Steele's Monterey Auction Block

Here’s a 2003 Corvette with a very special history, and it could be yours Friday night during Russo and Steele’s 14th annual Monterey California Auction.

The Corvette, of course, celebrated its 50th birthday in 2003, and Chevrolet offered a distinctive 50th Anniversary package to anyone who wanted to buy it.

This car, though, went much further than a paint job, as it served as an official Safety Car for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France that year.

This C5 Corvette racer with a solid axle from Moser Engineering nearly stands on its rear bumper when the light turns green. The driver powers through 60′ or so of track on just two wheels. Amazingly, the car stays under control as it drops back to four wheels and heads down the track.

The newest addition to the C5 Corvette lineup over at Bayou Boyz racing is being tested. This will be the 3rd C5 to join the team proving how competitive this package has become.

The Major League Baseball trade deadline was last week.

Larry Potter doesn’t have to worry about deadlines like that.

You see, back in 2004, he made the trade of a lifetime – gaining the keys to a friend’s beautiful 1966 Corvette roadster if Larry would just buy a new 2004 Corvette and throw the keys to his friend.

[VIDEO] 81 Year Old Road Rally Driver Tops 166 MPH in her C5 Corvette

Once a year in Idaho, the Sun Valley Road Rally transforms Highway 75 north of Ketchum into a “No Speed Limit” zone where drivers can run as fast as they want past throngs of spectators cheering them on. The event, now in its 5th year, raises money for the Blaine County Community Drug Coalition.

One of the videos we caught of the event featured a C5 Corvette that hit a top speed of 166 mph on the two lane road.

But that’s not all. Driving the yellow Corvette, according to the PA announcer, was an 81 year old grandmother.

[GIF] Watch Corvette's Evolution Over 7 Generations

Over the last six decades, Chevrolet has produced seven different iterations of the Corvette. Some of the designs have been called revolutionary like the C2 years while others have more or less evolved from the previous generation like C5 to C6.

eBay Motors found a cool way to illustrate the design changes the Corvette has undergone over the last 60 years by showing an animation that morphs from the C1′s 1953 Corvette all the way through to the C7 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Hot Wheels and Star Wars Introduce New Series with a Life-Sized Darth Vader Corvette

That tremor you felt in the force last week as millions of people suddenly cried out and then were silenced wasn’t the result of some interplanetary conflict. No, that collective gasp heard online was the unveiling of a new Hot Wheel’s Darth Vader show car at San Diego’s Comic-Con convention.

The Darth Vader car is the first in a new series of Star Wars character cars from Hot Wheels available this October.
