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.
Detroit Autorama takes place each year in early March. For those of us up here in the snowy Midwest, it’s the first sign that winter may actually be over and that car show season is in the near future. 2014 marked the 62nd edition of the massive indoor custom car show. Thousands of custom, restored, and original cars fill Cobo Hall each year competing for a multitude of awards. Click past the jump to see our gallery of Corvettes for the 2014 Detroit Autorama.
It was just last week that Chevrolet announced the 2015 Corvette Z06 will make its debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and now they are confirming that Corvette Racing’s new C7.R will be there as well. The C7.R will be shown in full race livery and then will depart to Florida to take part in the Tudor United SportsCar Racing’s inaugural race at the Rolex 24 of Daytona on January 25-26th.
The Woodward Dream Cruise is billed as the largest one-day car event in the world. Each year on the third Saturday in August about 1.5 million people and 40,000 or so collector cars descend on historic Woodward Avenue in metro Detroit. It’s the pinnacle of the annual automotive week of ecstasy we told you about a couple weeks ago.
