While most of us in the Corvette community don’t take our Corvettes for granted, they are always around as part of our families and, like the family dog or cat, we sometimes tend to forget how really special they are.
Not so for Jonathan “Randy” Williamson of Bluffton, Ohio. On the day before Halloween, there were no tricks played on Randy, only a very special treat—he got the chance to live out his dream of a ride in a Corvette convertible. Fifty-five-year-old Williamson has been on dialysis for over 20 years and lives in Richland Manor, a senior living healthcare campus community. His passions are cars and music, and one of his fondest bucket-list items was to take a ride in a Corvette.
It’s the last Friday of the month and that means it’s time for “Black Friday” here at CorvetteBlogger.com. Our family has owned a black Corvette Sting Ray for almost five decades and so the most sinister color of Corvette’s color palette is also our favorite. Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 37 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
We don’t know what’s under the hood of this C6 Corvette Z06 but the girl driving it gets the jump on a 2014 SRT Viper and never looks back as she takes the checkered flag in a roll race on an airport runway.
Watch this girl in a Corvette Z06 take down a 2014 SRT Viper in a half-mile roll race. Looks like she nearly loses her hood at the end of the runway.

Some Corvette accidents are the result of driver error while others are caused by careless drivers. This Corvette appears to have been claimed by a mechanical failure. The driver of the red C6 Z06 walked away last week after his car lost the right rear wheel and rolled over in northern Pennsylvania.
Hey, don’t blame the Corvette.
That’s our first reaction to a man getting locked inside a C6 after he climbed inside a 2007 Corvette coupe on sale at a Lynchburg, Va., car lot last week. (At least it wasn’t a convertible with the top down and the doors locked.)
If you think of high-performance Corvettes as gas guzzlers, think again.
This weekend, several Corvettes that have been converted to run on E85, a high octane blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent unleaded gasoline, will be strutting their stuff in Nebraska.
If you’re a big Corvette restomod fan and you also love the looks of the classic split window coupes, listen up — eBay has a car that might make you reach for your checkbook. The mint condition restomod coupe with only 2,124 miles on the clock is based on a 2009 Z06 coupe and wears a custom body by Karl Kustom Corvettes resembling the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray split window coupe. The interior has been refinished by Karls for a more classic look of the original SWC.
