Probably the only Corvette I ever owned that was really a true classic was an orange 1971 LT1 coupe that I ended up trading for a 2005 convertible to get a better road cruiser when I changed jobs and had to...

WTC September 11th Photos

After all these years, I still have trouble thinking about 911, the Police Officers that were friends and colleagues who died. I almost did not go to the city last night, but Im glad I did. The new Freedom Tower ( which I will always refer to as the WTC or Trade Center) along with the lights had a peaceful and serene feel. It was amazing to see all of people along the shoreline...

2014 Corvette Convertible

Convertibles get denounced by enthusiasts for being less pure. There’s some truth to that: installing the hydraulics to retract the roof adds weight, it usually makes the car look like a plank of wood, and it comprehensively ruins the handling by sacrificing structural rigidity. See. Less pure. Only, Chevrolet doesn’t agree. It claims the 2014 Corvette Stingray convertible is just as good as its hardtop twin, and can even outdo a McLaren 12C in...

If you’re a function over form type person… This might not be your cup of tea.   Teal, clearly, is not one of the traditional Corvette colors. Also, those massive wheels don’t look like they’d be the best idea for a...
