*******Celebrating 22 Years 1995 – 2017******* It's All About The Cars, Nothing More, Nothing Less!

The Icon

Beginning with the dramatically styled ’63 coupe and ending with enormously powerful big-block models, the Sting Ray cemented the Corvette’s place in history as one of the world’s great sports cars.  Gorgeous styling and performance few production cars of the era could even approach propelled Chevrolet’s second-generation Corvette to superstardom. When introduced in 1963, the nearly all-new Corvette Sting Ray instantly won the hearts of the motoring press and, even more important, flew out...

The Real McCoy

Though the ’56 Corvette’s redesigned bodywork gets most of the attention, the changes made beneath the skin were even more significant: They made this Chevrolet a legitimate sports car. It’s easy to forget that, in the beginning, the Corvette was a flop. With its side curtains and Powerglide automatic transmission, it wasn’t the sports car that buyers expected. Nor was it the easy seller that Chevy’s dealers anticipated; sales were disastrous during the first...

Lola the 1962 Corvette Chases Lucy on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

When Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. first came on the scene four years ago, there was a memorable clip featuring Agent Colston and a red 1962 Corvette named Lola. “Nobody touches Lola” said Colston to one of the other agents. Four years later, we’ve come to find out that nobody drives Lola either except for Agent Colston. A new promo for last night’s airing of the show featured a car chase between Agent Colston and...

Fast Eddy Mid-Engine Corvette is a Design Concept We Can Get Behind

Rumor has it Chevy is working on a mid-engine Corvette, perhaps just two years away. If that’s too long for you to wait, just take a look at this stunning mid-engine Corvette concept designed by The Aria Group, a two-decade-old design firm and fabrication company that builds concept cars for major automakers. The Aria Group was co-founded by Charles Taylor, who just happens to be the son of legendary GM designer Ed Taylor, whose...

1976 Corvette Owner Turns to TV Station for Help After Issues with Repair Shop

Photo Credit: king5.com All’s well that ends well for the owner of this yellow 1976 Corvette. Tom Nali of Tacoma, Washington recently left his dream car at City Glass in his hometown to have the weather stripping replaced. When he got the car back several months later (we wonder why it took so long for such a simple job), the new stripping was already coming off. A second trip to City Glass to do...

Two-Owner 1967 Corvette Convertible Barn Find

This 1967 Corvette convertible has been sitting patiently for the past 27 years, hoping for someone to get it on the road again. Now, thanks to an eBay listing that expires Sunday, someone may have the chance to restore or resto-mod this car that had the same owner for the past 45 years. The second owner bought it in 1971 and drove it in South Carolina until 1989, when he parked it for the...

1963 Corvette Sting Ray at Weeki Wachee, Florida

I always enjoy seeing old photos of Corvettes in their vintage settings, which for me harkins back to a somewhat more innocent time for America. So why not use the occasion to kick off a new weekly series of posts with vintage pictures of Corvettes! This 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible and the young lady sitting on the hood was captured at Weeki Wachee Springs in Florida. Click here to see a larger version...

1963 Corvette Sting Ray Burnout

 This is an Ermine White 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe burning a little rubber. Some would say that the C2 model which featured both a Coupe and Convertible body style was the best design ever for the Corvette. It’s hard not to agree, but we just think they should be driven like this guy was doing. Burning a little rubber. And when we say little rubber, check out those skinny bias ply tires...

William Shatner and a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe

  Today’s vintage picture features two culture icons, the 1963 split window Corvette coupe and actor William Shatner. Without knowing the date, it’s hard to say exactly what Shatner was working on at the time the photo was taken. From Wikipedia, we know that he was making appearances in both TV shows and movies in 1962-1963 including The Outer Limits and Route 66. But it was in 1966 that he assumed his most famous...

Zora with a Couple of 1971 Corvettes

Today’s vintage picture features Corvette’s first chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov with two 1971 Corvettes. Oh, and there’s some other dude with retro sneakers in the pic as well. Click to view a larger version of Zora and the 1971 Corvettes I don’t have any context for the photo so we’ll just present it as is. But I will drop this cool piece of trivia for fans of the 1971 Corvette. It was the 1971...

1968 Corvette Show Display

It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Here’s a great line up of Corvettes on display at a car show in 1968. Click to view a larger version of this 1968 car show display. The Corvette had turned 15 years old when Chevrolet introduced the 1968 model, the first of the C3s. During that time span, a number of remarkable Corvette concepts were built. We note that each model...

Testing a 1963 Corvette Z06 Prototype at Sebring

It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Today’s picture features a 1963 Z06 Mule and Chief Corvette engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov. Click to view a larger version of Zora and this 1963 Corvette Z06 mule Here’s an interesting photo we pulled from our Zora photo archive at Pinterest. This 1963 Corvette Z06 prototype has an early midyear front clip but the doors have coves which were such a prominent design...
