Chevrolet officially opened the door to the new C7 Corvette with the release of the redesigned crossed flags logo last week at Petit Le Mans. Today, a new video landed on Chevy’s countdown to the C7 website, www.one13thirteen.com, that teases the new sports car and gives us some an idea of what is yet to come when the Corvette is officially unveiled in Detroit on the eve of the North American International Auto Show.
We’ve all heard about kiddie rides at the fair.
Well, how about “kitty rides”?
We’ve found one of those stories that just begs for puns like that. Here’s another obvious one: This guy’s Corvette was really purring like a kitten. Or how about: Was she just “a cat on a hot tin (fiberglass?) hood”? Okay, okay, we’ll stop, but we couldn’t resist.

After a stunning 12 year run which saw Corvette once again flex its performance muscle, the final Corvette of the C4 generation rolled off the assembly line in Bowling Green on June 21, 1996. Over 366,000 Corvettes were built during these years and today the sleek-looking sports car still has a loyal following. Check out these videos which chronicled the building of the final C4.
Everyone dreads the thoughts of one day hitting a deer in his car.
Can you imagine if it happened in a Corvette Z06 during a race?
The beauty of the Chevrolet Corvette has been captured by many photographers for the past 60 years, but a slick video of a red 1969 Stingray on the creative website called Vimeo lifts the game to a brand new level.
Restoring your Corvette’s interior is one of the fastest and easiest ways to make your car look new again. And face it, if your midyear Corvette still has the original seats, they probably sag and don’t provide the support like they used to when they were new.
