Remember When Mark Hamill Drove This In Corvette Summer?!

    Written by Zach Martin on December 15, 2017 If you’re a Star Wars fan, chances are you’ve been at the movies in the last 12 hours to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi. With massive blockbusters like this, it’s easy to forget that the actors also starred in other movies. In the case of actor Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), he starred in Corvette Summer back when the original Star Wars trilogy was...

How to Replace C4 Corvette Outer Window Seals With Ease

Doors of Perception John Gilbert Oct 14, 2015 Share View Full Gallery There’s an old saying journeymen car painters pass on to the new kids entering the trade, and that’s, if nothing else, make sure the driver door and the top of the hood look good. That’s a bit of advice I’d like to share with anyone that owns a 1984-’96 C4 Corvette. Whether you’re going to sell the car or you intend to...

Here’s the Cure for Creaking C4 Corvettes: Vette2Vette’s C4 No Flex Kit

No Flex M’lady: This Easy Install Expels C4 Shakes, Rattles and Rolls John Gilbert Nov 17, 2017 Share View Full Gallery The C4 No Flex kit from Vette2Vette looks simple enough that an offshore knock-off artist could reproduce a reasonable facsimile, but a counterfeit kit couldn’t be installed as easy, or work as well. An observation we formed after this installation was completed and the car road tested. The C4 No Flex kit installed...

CVR’s C4 Corvette Starter Motor Mega Boosts VIN 8 and VIN J Starting Power

Start Your C4 Corvette Sure and Strong John Gilbert Nov 6, 2017 Share View Full Gallery The first thing to let go on my 1990 Corvette Z51 after buying it used with 69,000-plus miles on the clock was the starter, but it didn’t happen all at once. That would have made it too easy to diagnose the fault. It was a sneaky, intermittent problem that at first seemed like ensuring the clutch pedal was...

Chevrolet Ups the Ante with the 2019 Corvette ZR1

Big wing and even bigger power figures Taylor Kempkes Nov 13, 2017 Share View Full Gallery We’ve been hearing rumors of the ZR1 name making another appearance and, as Chevrolet announced in Dubai yesterday, the rumors are true. Like the C6 ZR1, the name of the game for the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 is more power—a lot more power. Chevrolet is proving the capabilities of the “new” LT platform over and over again. First...

Changing Oil in a Dry Sump C7

Technically Speaking James Berry Nov 29, 2017 Share View Full Gallery Q: Hello, my name is Joel. I recently purchased my first Corvette, a C7 Stingray. This may be my first Corvette but it will definitely not be my last. What a magnificent car. When it comes to my car I don’t like to take any chances so I like to do as much of the maintenance as I can myself. So, naturally, I...

Concours-Quality 1957 Corvette was the Exception to the Kustom 1970’s Rule

From the Archives: Corvette d’Elegance    Drew Hardin Jan 26, 2017 Share View Full Gallery In the 1970s Hot Rod magazine regularly ran special Corvette-themed issues, usually with some variation of the words “Wild Street Vettes!” on the cover. The car that would accompany those cover lines was typically a Corvette that had been modified with widebody fenders that barely (if at all) covered huge tires, front and rear spoilers, massive side pipes, a...

1957 Chevrolet Corvette National Roadster Show Winner

From the Archives: Oakland Show Champ Drew Hardin Nov 6, 2017 Share View Full Gallery Reviewing the film shot at the 1960 National Roadster Show in Oakland (California) makes it clear that Vettes were popular subjects for customizing, likely due to the malleable nature of their fiberglass envelopes.

1957 Corvette Really Found in a Barn!

 Rare Finds Jerry Heasley Oct 10, 2017 Share View Full Gallery “She opened up the barn doors and it was laying there,” Matt Barczak said. He shouldn’t have been surprised. After all, he had heard about this 1957 Corvette for almost his entire life. “I was waiting to see a 1975 Corvette. I was skeptical about the whole story.” The old Vette looked ridiculous in Matt’s mind. That was his impression of the scene,...

1966 Corvette 427/425 Big-Block Without all the Frills

Financially irresponsible and worth it Taylor Kempkes Dec 8, 2017 Share View Full Gallery Have you ever made a decision you should regret but don’t? That’s a rhetorical question obviously, because whatever decision you are thinking of we probably don’t want to hear it. In direct contrast though, Peter Koretz made a potentially regrettable decision that was right up our alley: he purchased a 1966 Corvette. A 427ci, 425-horsepower numbers-matching 1966 Corvette to be...
