Say the name of Caravaggio to those Corvette owners in the know and immediately visions of handcrafted leather seats and D-shaped steering wheels come to mind. But John Caravaggio’s shop is capable of transforming an entire Corvette inside and out and he recently showed off his latest work on a customer’s C7 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
Check out this video of a 1967 Corvette “Revelation” built by Mike Goldman Customs that won the 2015 Goodguy’s Street Machine of the Year crown in Columbus, Ohio at the 18th PPG Nationals on Saturday night.
New this year was placing all eligible cars in each category inside the Celeste Center, host site for the awards ceremony. That’s where the top five finalists in both divisions were announced to the crowd, then driven to the stage for the official ceremonies.
But first Scottie D TV gives us this walk around of the wild but restrained C2 done in white over tan.
Happy Birthday, America!!
Nothing is more patriotic than seeing America’s favorite sportscar wrapped in the greatest flag the world has ever known. Here’s an all-American salute to Corvettes on Independence Day featuring 43 Corvettes in a random photo gallery that are wearing or are featured with the Stars and Stripes.
Back in the day, a lot of car magazines featured C3 Corvettes painted wildly.
The Stingray just seemed to be one of those cars that was perfect for painting that way. We remember one in particular painted red, white and blue with white stars on it.
Now you can take another trip back to the Psychedelic ’70s in this 1971 Corvette Coupe.
Much has been written in the press about the interiors of Corvettes prior to the C7 having materials that were not up to the quality level of the competition. If you’re happy with the performance of your C6 — and you should be because the car is no slouch either on the road or at the track — but you’d like to upgrade to the latest snazzy interior, Carlex Design has introduced its Yellow Line interior for the C6 Corvette that may be what you are looking for.
A few months ago, we showed you a C6 ZR1 that had been fitted with a C7 rear end.
Now we’ve got something even stranger – a C5 that has received a C7 butt transplant!
Watch out Kim Kardashian!
The photos of this unusual creation showed up recently on Corvette Forum, which then did a survey asking what people thought about the car.
For the 63rd time, gearheads assembled in Detroit for the annual automotive spectacle known as Autorama. Like the groundhog that doesn’t see its shadow, Autorama signals that spring time and the car show and cruising seasons are right around the corner. Thousands of cars – customized, restored, and factory originals alike – invade Cobo Hall each year in hopes of taking home one of the many awards.
If you’re in the Houston area and have done a couple of Corvette shows, you have probably seen Steve and Lou Ann Pond’s bright yellow 2007 C6 known as the “Tweety Bird” Corvette.
Like a lot of us, Steve has been fallen for the new C7. So with a new Corvette Stingray in the garage, the show car designer set about to transform the White and Red Corvette into a show car in its own right.
One of the custom Corvettes we were anxious to see in person at the SEMA show comes from a new player in the Corvette aftermarket. Revorix is a new company that has deep roots in Japan and now they have set their sights on America. For the SEMA Show, they brought a 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible to showcase their new product line of functional aerodynamic parts for America’s favorite sports car.
