[VIDEO] Jay Leno Puts His Corvette Z06 on Real Car Simulator

Jay Leno took his C5 Corvette Z06 for a spin the other day without ever leaving the confines of his garage. How’d he do that, you ask? He invited the gurus from Drag Tag Simulations to Jay Leno’s Garage who set up a virtual driving environment that is part dyno, part video game. With his Yellow Corvette Z06 strapped to the platform, Jay was able to cruise the virtual streets and even got in some quarter mile runs. Check out the video after the jump.

Corvettes on eBay: Murdered Out 2004 Corvette Z06

One of the things I love about Corvettes is that you can learn something new every day about them as well as how they fit it to all different niches of America’s car culture in general. For me, today’s lesson comes from the term “Murdered Out” which the Urban Dictionary describes as a vehicle that is black with black wheels and looks very intimidating.

The sale of the White/Blue one-off VIN #001 Corvette Z06 for $210,000 to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick was probably a little lower than what the NCM was looking for, but every little bit helps!

[PIC] '07 Corvette Z06 Theft Recovery Is Missing A Few Items

I was perusing some Corvette salvage classifieds when I came across this ad for a 2007 Corvette Z06. It was listed as a theft recovery but obviously only part of the Corvette was recovered! This made for some interesting reading when describing the vehicle’s condition: Won’t Start, Missing Key. Dang! I was hoping to test drive it too.
