You Can be the Champ in Sylvester Stallone's Custom 1968 Corvette

Back in October 2009, we told you about a custom 1968 Corvette on our Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Results post.

Then we showed you a photo of the new owner cruising Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Turned out to be the legendary Sylvester Stallone, who proved to be the high bidder via telephone, shelling out a whopping $198,000 back then for the 510/660 hp roadster.

You'll be on Top of the World with this 1954 Corvette Previously Owned by Richard Carpenter

Corvettes have always been noted for getting better year after year.

That was the case even back in 1954, the second year of production of America’s new sports car.

You can buy this example of a ’54 that has a unique history during Russo and Steele’s 3rd Annual Newport Beach, California Auction to be held June 5-7. It was bought on May 11, 1988 from Richard Carpenter, yes, the one who made such beautiful music with his sister, Karen, as the popular 1970s group, The Carpenters.

For those of you that remember FOX’s teenage drama Beverly Hills 90210 from the 1990’s, actor Ian Ziering played high school student Steve Sanders, the son of a famous actress. On the show, Steve drove a C4 Corvette Convertible with the awesome vanity license plate that read “I8A 4RE”.

I had the opportunity to meet Ian at a FOX-TV rollout party back in the 90’s. We got to talking and it turned out that he was a Corvette enthusiast in real life as well. If I recall correctly, it was his idea to use a Corvette as Steve Sander’s car on Beverly Hills 90210.

Today, Ian is back in the news after posting a photo of himself behind the wheel of the new Corvette Stingray.

Let’s take an inside look at one reason (or four reasons, actually) why the seventh-generation Corvette Stingray handles so well.

We all know that Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter and his talented crew worked wonders making the 2014 Corvette such an improvement over previous models.

Now watch this video to see our host, Meteorologist Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel, go on a Corvette hot lap in a Laguna Blue Stingray around the Michelin Laurens Proving Grounds in South Carolina, which consists of more than a dozen special tracks and surfaces for tire and suspension system testing, driving training, and event management, all situated on 3,300 acres.

Comedian Jeff Dunham Drives the Corvette Stingray at Spring Mountain Motor Resort

When he was just 8 years old, Jeff Dunham got a dummy and an instructional record from his parents for Christmas.

Thus began his intense interest in ventriloquism, an interest that has turned him into one of the top comedians in the United States today.

In fact, Dunham’s latest gig is an impressive one, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
