We made a quick stop last weekend at the 8th annual Canterbury Corvette Fest hosted by the GMC Corvette Set club. Just under 100 Corvettes were spread out around the scenic property of Olde World Canterbury Village in Lake Orion, Michigan. A photo gallery of the event lurks just beyond the jump.
Each year the Eyeson Design car show celebrates the best in automotive design from pre-war cars and motorcycles to modern tuner cars. This year the popular event turned 25 and celebrated its silver anniversary with a special circle of silver Corvettes.
It’s not every day that you see more than 100 shiny Corvettes in one place.
It’s even more unusual when those Corvettes are gathered on Flagstaff Hill in Wollongong, the third largest city in the state of New South Wales, Australia!
Zip Corvette Parts has long been known for serving owners and enthusiasts as a trusted source of Corvette parts and accessories. To celebrate the 35th anniversary of their founding in 1977, Zip Corvette is throwing a party and you’re invited! Check out Zip’s “Cruising in the Fast Lane” celebration on Saturday, April 14th at their headquarters in Mechanicsville, Virginia.
Each January all eyes on the automotive world focus on the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. All the major carmakers roll out their latest creations and concepts for the world to see. This year General Motors created a whole new display to highlight their portfolio of products. We grabbed a couple of tickets to the ritzy charity preview event so we could check out all the good stuff before the show opened to the public.
Sunday was the 5th Annual Corvettes for Chip show in honor of the late Chip Miller. The beautiful blue sky and 59 degree weather guaranteed a great turnout for the show which also serves as a Amyloidosis research fundraiser for the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation. The show was held in West Chester, PA at the very scenic Brandywine picnic park and there were plenty of great looking Corvettes to see including Lance Miller’s Le Mans winning 1960 Briggs Cunningham Corvette. Check out the huge photo gallery after the jump.
The doors opened today in Frankfurt, Germany for the 64th International Motor Show and the halo car of the Chevrolet brand is well represented. Celebrating its 100 year anniversary, Chevy’s display offers a glimpse of past, present and future models in the Chevrolet lineup.

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! Check out the full gallery after the jump.
By now, most of you should be familiar with the Corvette Stingray Concept that was featured in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Last year the Stingray Concept hit the car show circuit which allowed the public the opportunity to take in the sleek, futuristic Corvette. Great, except for some reason it skipped the show in my hometown of Tampa. So when I saw it featured in an advertisement this weekend, I headed to the Convention center for my first opportunity to get up close and personal with Chevy’s popular Corvette concept.
The Classic Corvette Club UK held their 30th Anniversary Nationals show recently and corvette owners turned out to display a variety of the classic American sports car from all generations. Like most shows, participants entered Corvettes ranging from stock through modified, race cars and recreations. Some of the customs are very well done and so we thought a pictorial feature would be nice to show what our brothers and sisters from across the pond are doing to their Corvettes.
