A red 1999 Corvette coupe suffered an apparent mechanical problem on Saturday morning and wound up in the woods in the Florida Panhandle town of Crestview.
“I love that car,” said a Crestview man who requested his name not be revealed. “It’s something I wish I didn’t have to be seeing.”
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.
A few months ago, I wrote about my experience of cramming $300 worth of groceries in a C6 Corvette convertible. You’d be surprised how much a Corvette can hold these days.
But we found a slide show on the Web this week of a man in Alberta, Canada, that has us beat.
The dude apparently forgot what kind of car he was driving when he bought a huge stuffed bear at a Costco store.
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. The event is billed as the largest one-day car event in the world as 1 – 1.5 million people and 40,000 or so collector cars descend on historic Woodward Avenue in metro Detroit each year on the 3rd Saturday in August.
On Wednesday we participated in yet another edition of the annual Corvettes on Woodward charity food drive. Hundreds of Corvettes gathered to support the Open Hands Food Pantry in Royal Oak, MI. 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.
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.
