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.
Earlier this month we brought you pictures of the Arctic White Corvette Stingray that was painted by three young members of the General Motors design team as part of a fundraiser for the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD).
Chevy has released a time-lapse video showing exactly how the three designers put the paint to canvas and ended up with one very cool (and very fast) pieces of contemporary art.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray has already been acclaimed around the world for its beautiful and trend-setting design.
Now three General Motors car designers are going to take it a step further, helping the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) Gala Fundraiser today.
The three GM Design employees – Casey Swanseger, 30; Tyler Mars, 28; and Haneif Katebi, 25 – will be using paint and brush on a 2014 Stingray, bringing to life Detroit’s “creative corridor” made up of industries that merge art, technology, and business.
We spent last Saturday with over 1 million of our closest friends at the famous Woodward Dream Cruise. The event is billed as the largest one-day car event in the world as 1 – 1.5 million people and 40,000 or so collector cars descend on historic Woodward Avenue in metro Detroit each year on the 3rd Saturday in August.
With all the discouraging news coming out of Detroit these days, thanks to millions of recalls, here’s a story that will bring a smile to a Chevy enthusiast’s face.
First, though, we have to go back to 1981. That when George Talley, in his late 30s, reported that his 1979 Corvette had been stolen just three miles from General Motors’ world headquarters in Detroit.
For all you unfortunate folks out there who have had their Corvettes stolen over the years, never to see your pride and joy again, don’t give up hope.
You see, George Talley of Detroit, Michigan, offers up a reason to look at the glass as half full.
His 1979 Corvette was parked on Jefferson Avenue 33 years ago when someone swiped it.
The second annual Corvettes in the D all-Corvette event took place last weekend at the foot of GM’s world headquarters in downtown Detroit. Hundreds of Corvette enthusiasts gathered along the banks the of the Detroit river for a day full of good times and Corvette camaraderie.
Here’s great event to get your Father’s Day weekend kicked off in style. Corvettes in the D will take place in the shadow of GM’s world headquarters in downtown Detroit. The second-year Corvette show runs 10am – 4pm on Saturday June 14th.
