Last week at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the National Corvette Museum’s Sinkhole was a topic of conversation for many Corvette enthusiasts but this time its in the news for all the right reasons.

Ever since attending our first SEMA show, we’ve been hooked. And it’s not hard to see why either.

Armed with our trusty Canon DSLR, we went hunting for Corvettes at the 2014 SEMA show and by our count, came up nearly 70 different cars ranging from a 1958 restomod to the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible.

Like covering the quarter-mile in 10.95 seconds with the automatic and 11.2 seconds with the manual.

But Chevrolet Performance is ready to gear it up a notch or two further for “ordinary” Stingray owners, with several aero, chassis, and suspension concept parts from the Z06 on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
