Here’s a story that should make you proud you drive a Corvette – and a story that should make you appreciate every minute you get to climb behind the wheel of your pride and joy.
Not everyone is so fortunate.
If you’re a fan of the legendary Beatles, and more specifically, Sir Paul McCartney, you might want to be on the lookout for a blue C5 Corvette convertible if you happen to be in California.
Check out these photos of a rather dapper, though casual, McCartney as he took his C5 Corvette on a “long and winding road” Tuesday that ended at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
After seeing the condition of the first Corvette to fall into the National Corvette Museum’s Sinkhole and the last one out, it’s pretty hard to be excited about the retrieval of the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette. But the final Corvette is now out and that marks the completion of “Operation Corvette Plus” which is what the workers dubbed the rescue of the “Great 8” Corvettes that fell into the 40-ft sinkhole on February 12th.
Good news from the National Corvette Museum this week. They announced on Monday with a photo posted on their facebook page that construction workers had finally located the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 in the sky dome sinkhole. The Z06 was one of two member-donated Corvettes to have fallen into the sinkhole and as the surveillance tape shows, it was the first Corvette to fall when the floor split open in the early morning hours of February 12th.
This might be a great case of the glass being half full or half empty, depending on your perspective.
Half empty? The driver of this blue C5 Corvette convertible was driving at a high rate of speed when he lost control and sent his sports car cannonballing into a ditch of nasty water near The Outlets mall in Pearl, Mississippi.
Half full? He was not injured and just got a little wet as he escaped from the Corvette.
If you’re looking for some used Corvette parts to help with a restoration, this might be your big chance.
Eric and Keith Hay, owners of Wayne Auto Parts in Dover, Ohio, say after 57 years it’s time to retire so they will be shutting their doors for good at the end of June unless someone buys the land before then.
The owners of the Corvette resting at the bottom of the pile in the shocking sinkhole inside the National Corvette Museum say they’re not sorry they donated their 2001 Mallett Hammer Conversion Z06 just six weeks ago.
Kevin and Linda Helmintoller made the trip to Bowling Green on Saturday to see firsthand the sinkhole that ate their car, which appears to be the lowest in the stack of eight Corvettes that suddenly tumbled into the earth on Wednesday.
After looking at the damaged Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum for the last couple of days, I think we need to remember why we love these cars so much. So here’s a random Corvette gallery that we’ve entitled “Corvette Fever”.
One of my all time favorite annual Corvette events is the NCRS Winter Regional in Kissimmee, Florida. While I love doing the stories and coverage of the new C7 Corvette Stingray and Z06, there’s just something about walking through a field literately strewn with used Corvette parts and accessories for every generation but the C7.
You know the Corvette Z06, any red blooded auto enthusiast does! This head turning, track dominating, ultra-performance sports car has inspired both racers and the everyday Corvette lover to add a little more excitement to their lives. The unique features of the 2015 Z06 are grabbing headlines and causing many of us to check how much equity we have in our house, and it’s not even on sale yet.
However, the new Z06 isn’t the only one that’s ever made waves in the auto industry — well actually, every time a Z06 has rolled off an assembly line, it’s been a game changer in the industry. We could talk about the Z06 all day long (and what a great day that would be), but we’d rather show you the distinctions of this glorious automobile with this awesome infographic.
