The iconic “Route 66” TV show was ostensibly about two young men and their adventures traveling across America, exploring social issues of the era.

[DVR ALERT] The C7 Corvette Stingray to Appear on BBC's Top Gear TV Show

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.

[PIC] Husband Surprises Agents of SHIELD Actress with a Corvette Stingray

The Marvel Comics Universe seems to have a thing for Corvettes. First there was the Black Widow’s Corvette Stingray from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And then when Agents of SHIELD came to FOX, one of the stars of the show is Agent Coulson’s classic red Corvette named Lola.

Now another Agent of SHIELD will be driving a Corvette Stingray, but not on TV. Actress Ming-Na Wen who plays Agent Melinda May on the show was just surprised with a red Corvette Stingray from her husband on her birthday.
