During last week’s Detroit Autorama, Cobo Hall was wall-to-wall hot rods and many of those hot rods were Corvettes. The classic hod rod Vettes ranged from originals and restomods to full blown customs like the 1962 Corvette named “Elegance” that won a spot in the Ridler Great 8. Not to be outdone, later model Corvettes included the SEMA Z06x track Corvette and a sinister Black Lingenfelter C6 Convertible were also on full display. Even Jake was in the house!

Canadian Tuner Unveils Impressive Gold Rush Corvette

Canada. The great white north. The country that brought us back bacon, Molson beer and Ron Fellows is also home to Elite Tuners of Canada (ETC) and their Gold Rush colored C6 Corvette. The tuning company made their first appearance at the 2011 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto last week with a display of two cars in front of the Chevrolet area. Dubbed the “Top Tuner 5” project, the Corvette and its Chevy Cruze counterpart “Top Tuner 5.5” turned a lot of heads with the race-inspired tuning projects.

[VIDEO] Atlanta Corvette Driver Slams Police Cruiser in Hit and Run

We think Corvette enthusiasts are some of the greatest people in the world. Unfortunately, we also have our share of morons who think they can do whatever they want. Case in point? A police officer cruising the Lenox Mall in Atlanta saw a C6 Corvette parked in the fire lane. As he pulls behind it, the car’s driver comes out of the mall. The officer attempts to question him and the man jumps in the car, locks the doors and takes off at a high rate of speed.

But the real beauty of this video is the relationship between father and daughter. She will never forget the day her dad taught her how to do donuts in a yellow Corvette and believe me, neither will he.
