Jerry Seinfeld will be kicking off a new season of his web show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” by taking a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe to the White House where he’ll be meeting with the nation’s Commander in Chief, President Obama.
Jay Leno is back on prime-time TV with Jay Leno’s Garage – his new 1-hour show aired Wednesday evening at 10 pm on CNBC. It’s everything we love about Jay and his cars so go now and set your DVR for the show.
If you missed the show, there was a great piece that aired towards the end with a custom Corvette and a certain NASCAR driver you might be familiar with!
You may have seen Murray Sawchuck at a show in Las Vegas or on “Pawn Stars” where he shares his knowledge of magic history with the “Old Man” and his gang there.

Velocity’s Car Crazy this week will feature the immense car collection of Ken Lingenfelter. You’ll recognize Ken Lingenfelter as the owner of aftermarket superpower Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. The episode of Car Crazy, hosted by Barry Meguiar, debuts Monday, September 14th on Discovery’s Velocity channel.
The iconic “Route 66” TV show was ostensibly about two young men and their adventures traveling across America, exploring social issues of the era.
But to Corvette enthusiasts, the show was much more than that – a prime vehicle to see their favorite car on a weekly basis.
Sadly, one of the stars of the show – Martin Milner – passed away Sunday at his home in Carlsbad, Calif., at the age of 83.
The latest trailer for the BBC’s Top Gear dropped this week and it shows that a C7 Corvette Stingray will finally get some screen time on the widely popular automotive show featuring hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James Mays.
Given the show’s previous use of Corvettes for mockery and mayhem, I would normally caution Corvette fans that it might be a mixed bag in terms of how the Corvette will be featured, but judging from the trailer, it looks like the Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray will be shown in a straight-up comparison test against a Porsche Cayman.
One of the cool things about the Corvette is its long family line after 62 years of production.
For instance, take these two cars featured in an AmeriCarna video on Velocity.com.
Though they’re separated by nearly 50 years, it’s easy to tell that the 1968 Corvette L88 “gave birth” to the 2015 Corvette C7.R race car.
At least two C3 Corvettes were among the vehicles damaged in a suspected arson in late December at a well-known classic car auto dealership in Miami, Florida.
The fire, which was set in three places, caused $1 million in damages to Ted Vernon Specialty Autos at 8301 N.W. 7th Ave., but it could have been much worse.
If you enjoy watching reruns of the popular 1960s TV classic Route 66 and have longed for a remake featuring the fabulous C7 edition of the Corvette, then you’re going to love the news that EW.com is reporting.
That website says a remake of the original series that featured Martin Milner and George Maharis driving their C2 and C3 Corvettes around the country is in the works.
