Congratulations to our friend and CorvetteBlogger sponsor Mike Furman of Criswell Corvette who earlier this month delivered his 3,000th Corvette to a customer. Mike’s first Corvette sale goes all the way back to July 26, 1978 when he sold a 1978 Corvette to Cassius De la Victoria. Some 426 months later, Mike delivered his 3,000th Corvette to a customer from Potomac, MD.
General Motors and Chevrolet had a busy day Monday at the North American International Auto Show. First, they had to accept their awards for North American Car (Corvette Stingray) and Truck (Chevy Silverado) of the year, then it was over to Chevrolet display to show off the new 2015 Corvette Z06 and its evil twin, the C7.R. We’ve already taken a look at the Z06, now let’s immerse ourselves in a sea of C7.R.
At the 2014 North American International Auto Show, an informal conversation with Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter turned into a 15 minute Q&A session. Quickly flipping on the camera, we caught a lot of great tidbits about some of the technology behind the all new 2015 Corvette Z06.
Let’s put politics aside for a moment as we show these pictures of Vice President Joe Biden checking out the new 2015 Corvette Z06 at the Chevrolet display at the North American International Auto Show.
Biden is a long-time Corvette owner with a 1967 Corvette Big Block Roadster back home in his Delaware garage. So we’re pretty sure the excitement and smiles we are seeing on his face as he sits in the new Corvette Z06 and Stingray are genuine.
Chevrolet lifted the skirt Monday on the next iteration of the legendary Corvette Z06 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. Bowing in early 2015, the C7 will pack an estimated 625hp and 635 ft-lbs of torque from its supercharged 6.2L LT4 power plant. We were on hand for the big reveal in Motown and our gallery from the event awaits you just beyond the Read More button below.
Here is the video from the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday when the Corvette Stingray was named the 2014 North American Car of the Year. CorvetteBlogger spoke to members of the Corvette Team following the awards ceremony for their reactions.
DtRockstar1 captures some footage of the all new 2015 C7 Corvette Z06 idling and driving down the floor at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, or NAIAS. This car is so badass, I like it even better than the base model.

Chevrolet has turned to using “little spies” to make sure the engines going into the 2014 Corvette Stingray and 2014 Silverado are up to par.
Basically, as the engines go through the various stages of building at General Motors’ Tonawanda, New York facility, the process is being documented through an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) data bolt that has been installed on each engine block and engine head.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray continues to leave the competition in its rearview mirror, even in Canada.
After exhaustive testing by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada, the Stingray emerged as the “Best new Sports / Performance” car in the annual Canadian Car of the Year awards – leading the runner-up by some eight points.
