C6 Corvette-Based Rossi SixtySix Makes Jump from Vaporware to Real Life

Here are some real world photos of the C6 Corvette-based Rossi SixtySix from its appearance at the Bloomington Gold Corvette show last weekend. While computer renderings are cool in all, it’s refreshing to see a car actually live up to the hype.

Rossi SixtySix Fuses Classic Corvette Sting Ray Looks with C6 Technology

Almost two years ago the world was introduced to the Rossi SixtySix, a C6 Corvette refitted with custom panels that borrow some of the best design features of the 1963-67 Sting Rays while updating the mid-year look for the 21 century. No longer just a dream, the Rossi SixtySix project is tooled up and well underway with the first car, a Pearl White Split Window Coupe making its public debut this Sunday at Detroit’s EyesOn Design benefit.

Proteam's Terry Michaelis is Stylin' With Two Unique Midyear Corvettes

Friend and CorvetteBlogger sponsor Terry Michaelis of Proteam Corvette sent us this great photo today of these two GM Style Corvettes. Both of these unique midyears are new editions to his collection which is billed as the largest in the world. Terry picked up the “Ozzie Olson” 1964 Corvette Coupe on the right at the RM Auction in Fort Lauderdale in March for a cool $160,000. Then in mid-May he bought one of the top 10 collectible Corvettes available – Harley Earl’s personal 1963 Corvette Roadster – which he paid $925,000 at the Mecum Spring Classic auction last month.

Oh No! Is SpeedRacer Selling His Mach 5 Corvette?

by Keith Cornett on June 2, 2010

Oh No! SpeedRacer is Selling is Mach 5 Corvette?

Is the economy so bad that even SpeedRacer has to part with his famous Mach 5 race car? Actually, we were tipped to this unique Corvette-based Mach 5 from a twitter user who passed by it on Ventura Boulevard where the car was on the lot of Woodland Hills Quality Motors in LA. The body style is similar to one of Mark Towle’s The Real Mach 5 replicas down to the wheels, but I couldn’t tell you if this is one of his or not. You can be SpeedRacer for just $27,995 although we are pretty sure that it doesn’t come with a monkey.

Is the World Ready for a General Lee Corvette ZR1?

Is the World Ready for General Lee Corvette ZR1?

This Corvette ZR1 has been wrapped in the Dukes of Hazzard’s General Lee livery in anticipation for the GoldRush Rally that is being held over June 8-13, 2010. A General Lee themed Corvette is certainly over the top, however, that orange against the black wheels, headlights and carbon fiber splitter and rockers is stunning and I’m starting to question if this shade is better than the 2011 Corvette’s Inferno Orange.

Custom Corvettes: Update on The Dragon Vette

by Keith Cornett on April 8, 2010

Update on The Dragon Vette

We got an update on the Dragon Vette that confirms what we wrote about in our original post – the world’s worst custom Corvette is now rocking a supercharger that should boost his horsepower from the standard 436 hp to around 600 hp. According to a member over at LS1Tech.com, the Dragon Vette was spotted at a local dealership getting the centrifugal supercharger installed and most surprising is that under the hood, all appears to be stock and unmolested.

[PICS] The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Goes Topless

by Keith Cornett on October 21, 2009

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Goes Topless

I guess the new Convertible Corvette Grand Sport is just too tame for some folks.

Here is a Velocity Yellow Corvette ZR1 that has gone topless. The pics were posted to Twitter, but I have no background info on the car or the conversion process. Obviously, the 638-hp Chevy supercar was on display at a car show somewhere. If you have any details, please share!

UPDATE

These pics date back to an August 8th car show in the Walmart parking lot in Harleysville, PA. Apparently, the owner bought the Corvette ZR1 and a yellow Corvette convertible donor car at the same time. He had a shop do the conversion which cut off the carbon fiber roof and then used parts off the convertible to complete the conversion.

There is no word on whether or not the frame was strengthened. As our commenters have pointed out, the aluminum frame wasn’t designed for a convertible body so he can expect some body flex. Most likely, this Corvette was built for show and will never see the track.

I’ve got to give the owner credit. Only one like it (for now)!
