When perusing the thousands of hop up bits and custom cars at SEMA it’s always hard to pick a favorite. We’ve already shown you Heartland Custom’s 1971 “Stingray” coupe and now it’s time to marvel at the “Raytona” 1963 convertible. If you follow us on social media you already got a sneak peek of this awesome ride last week. Now it’s time for a closer look.
Heartland Customs unveiled their latest masterpiece at the SEMA show on Tuesday. The deep red 1971 coupe with Steel Cities Gray accents is appropriately named “Stingray” and was custom built for a customer of theirs. It will be on display throughout this week in the CTEK booth at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
We all know Monday’s suck more than the Detroit Lions, but that’s no reason to fret. It’s SEMA week again here at CorvetteBlogger. The SEMA show is the marque event for the automotive custom and aftermarket industry. Each year 60,000 or so attendees flock to Las Vegas to view the latest offerings from hundreds of suppliers. Countless custom rides become the show pieces on which to display the newest products and industry trends.
While our super bloggers Keith and Steve are out in fabulous Las Vegas perusing all the latest go fast bits and eye candy for your ride, we’ve got you covered with an all custom Midyear Monday gallery this week featuring 1963-1967 Corvettes adorned with custom and aftermarket goodies.
Be sure to keep it tuned here all week as we bring all sorts of content from the 2015 SEMA show.
Corvette owners are funny in the way that they love to look at their cars. When they drive it out somewhere and have to park, they do so where the can look at it. When they go to shows, they get some chairs and hang out to watch others look at it. Some even go to extremes like building a website to celebrate their Corvette or they share photo after photo of their rides on social media. Some owners even send Christmas cards featuring their Corvettes out to folks every year.
The point is Corvette owners love their cars and they love to look at them. For those that have this affliction, I got a really cool website to share with you which features the automotive art of former GM and Ford designer Danny Whitfield.
