Corvette Stingray Concept, cool badge

LeftLaneNews just posted pictures of the new Corvette Stingray concept which will have a staring roll in the upcoming Transformers movie.  I’m really digging the badge design of a stylized stingray.  It really grabs some of the “streamlining” romance of a past era, but with a modern edge….much like the Corvette itself.

Callaway Sledghammer Corvette, pure classic

Sledgehammer Corvette
way back in the dark ages of my youth, this car was a mythical beast. Often talked about, but never seen. The Callaway Sledgehammer Corvette. Today I had lunch with Reeves himself and he gave me these photos to share with you guys…..and they’re glorious. Driven by the late and great John Lingenfelter, this car achieved over 254 mph with a handbuilt motor making over 800hp with a Callaway Aerobody by Paul Deutschman of Deutschman Design.

Yoshi the GT-R takes on a Nitrous Corvette Rental

Well, as promised the video is finally out, I gave the keys to my car to Garage419, told them I didn’t want to know what they would do with it so long as Matt spanked Gene. Wishes came true

:-)

No Silly girl, the other one

ROTFLMAO so at first I thought this video was “hot chick falls asleep on hood of car“, but about 1 minute 10 seconds in you realize just how much gray mater we’re dealing with here.

2008 Petit Le Mans, Corvette Racing Video

I hate that I missed this race this year….oe of the sucky things about living in LA is being so far away from Road Atlanta.

Maybe next year I’ll be able to take some time off and go to the race again.

Video, Corvette C3 drifts it ZZ-Top style.


Totally Custom Corvette C3

I remember the very first Corvette I ever saw.  It was a Forrest Green Corvette C3 parked in front of my elementary school.  My teacher was dating some playboy with the car and asked me to get some papers out of it, and I recall I couldn’t figure out how to open the door with it’s Disco flush door handles.  Well, now I have disco-flush door handles on my GT-R, but I still remember that first vette, I saw fondly.  This Corvette is a bit more extreme than that, but the super wide fenders and 15″ 345 tires are so fucking metal, how can you not love this car?
