Corvette owners have long been noted for their patriotism and loyalty to America.

Who can forget the red, white, and blue C2s of the 1960s or similarly painted C3s of the 1970s?

We even saw a star-spangled C7 Grand Sport for sale the other day.

So it’s no surprise that C8 owners have jumped aboard, with the first already displaying the patriotic engine cover he commissioned for his 2020 Stingray.

After replacing his stock cover with a red one after picking up his car, David Savage then decided to use his old engine cover to promote America, coming up with the idea of a blue stripe, 10 stars, and the Corvette logo down the middle, with wide white stripes next to that, then red stripes on each side of those.

For those who might be interested in pursuing such a path with their C8, Savage told someone on Facebook to “just find an airbrusher person that does cars and motorcycles.”

We think the newly painted cover really dresses up the engine compartment of David’s Stingray, and that’s one of the things that has us truly excited about the new C8. We know there are already a plethora of options available from the factory that individualize each car to your taste and budget, but then the car’s mid-engine design just begs for the aftermarket to come up with even more ways to make your Stingray unique.

The custom artwork for the C8 Corvette engine cover was done by Frank B. in Sweet Valley Pa. You can check out his website at www.thebearcrossingshop.com.

We’re not sure if David has further plans to customize his car, but some LED lighting for the engine compartment seems like a great way to show off his patriotic cover, for sure. Similarly themed wraps could also help continue the “Proud to be an American” theme for Savage.

What other ways have you been considering to make your C8 as unique as your fingerprint?

  1. Love it! My C-8 #422 needs something like that, now I have to figure out the theme so as not to copycat… nice to see monochromatic side gulls… I opted for my Ceramic Matrix to have same color gill covers as the car.. glad I did!!
