European Dealer Crashes Customer's C6 Corvette

We got a little bit of drama happening to one of our Corvette brothers in the Netherlands. CF Forum Member Twin_Turbo had dropped his C6 Corvette off at the Koenen automotive dealership for the roof recall and then received a call that the car had been involved in an accident. While we’ve heard the story before of service technicians joyriding in customer cars, this Corvette crash was caused by none other than the owner of the dealership himself.

Corvette vs Walmart Crash Injures Two

We got a two-fer to go with yesterday’s story of a C6 Corvette crashing into an Emmy-award winning puppeteer’s home. This accident features a black 2007 Corvette driven by 75-year-old Carl Sloan of Morgan Hill, CA. Sloan and 58 year old Teenie Denise were cruising the parking lot of a local Wal-Mart when the car suddenly accelerated and crashed into the front of the store. The cause of the accident may have been due to a medical condition. Both went to the hospital and will be okay. The Corvette? Not so much…

Intoxicated Corvette Driver Parks C6 in Burbank Home

On September 24th, 63-year old Pat Leeper crashed his Arctic White C6 Corvette into the Burbank home of Rene Zendejas. Already devastated by the loss of his pet canary a few days earlier, the 89-year-old Emmy winning puppeteer missed his birthday party due to the crash and now has to look forward to dealing with insurance companies to cover the estimated $60,000 in damages. The crash is believed to be caused by drunk driving with tests pending to determine the blood alchohol content of Leeper’s blood.

[VIDEO] TAM GT3 Corvette Callaway Z06.R Promo

I really like some of these promo films coming out of Corvette Motorsport featuring the variety of international teams racing Corvettes. Here is a promo film from TAM House of Portier that runs a GT3 Callaway Corvette Z06.R in the UAE GT Championship. Production values are high and the gratuitous shots of their Corvette on the track is appealing on any continent.

Corvette ZR1 Body Kits for C6 Coupes

There’s no doubt that the Corvette ZR1 is the baddest Corvette that GM has ever made. With 638 horsepower generated from an Eaton twin-screw supercharger, the ZR1 is capable of traveling 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 205 mph. Equal to the performance is the aerodynamic body designed to generate down force and keep you planted on the road. Now Corvette C6 owners can get the great look of the Corvette ZR1 for just a fraction of the cost.

September 2010 Corvette Sales

Friday saw the release of GM’s monthly sales reports and for the straight sixth straight month the number of Corvettes sold has been north of 1,000 units. In September 2010, 1,109 Corvettes were sold. This was 30% lower than last year’s 1,585 Corvettes, but discount that due to extenuating circumstances surrounding the September 2009 sales total. Year to date, Corvette sales total 9,798, a 9% decrease from 2009’s 10,795 units.
