All the big players in the aftermarket industry congregate at the Las Vegas Convention Center for what can only be described as an epic display. Good or bad (but mostly good), every trend in the automotive aftermarket starts right here.

Make This 1968 Corvette SCCA B Class Racer Yours For Just $35,000


by Chris Demorro as republished from Corvette Online
SCCA B/Production vintage racers offer a balance between price, power and that raw racing sound

Dateline 11.28.15: Racing is a rich man’s sport for sure, though some forms of it are much more affordable than others. Essentially, the faster you want to go, the more you have to spend. SCCA B/Production vintage racers offer a balance between price, power and that raw racing sound. You can get behind the wheel of a period-correct SCCA race car for about the same price as a new Mustang GT or Camaro SS. Continue reading

Corvette restoration a bonding experience for R.I. father and son

Christopher DeGrave’s Ontario Orange 1971 Chevrolet Corvette 454 LS5
is a striking reflection of the bond he has with his father, Dennis

Dateline 11.28.15: RICHMOND, R.I. — Christopher DeGrave’s Ontario Orange 1971 Chevrolet Corvette 454 LS5 is a striking reflection of the bond he has with his father, Dennis. Together, they’re a team with deep roots. Christopher is an only child, as was Dennis. Indeed, the tradition of only children — and only sons at that — goes back five generations to Christopher’s great-great grandfather, who immigrated to the United States in 1912 from northern France, near the port city of Calais.

Impeccably Original 1969 Corvette L88 Comes to Auction


as republished from Robb Report
Duntov’s Thundering L88 represented much of Duntov’s race-oriented thinking

Dateline 11.28.15: Restlessly transformed into a serious high-performance car soon after its introduction by Zora Arkus-Duntov and his Corvette Engineering team, the second-generation Corvette Sting Ray represented much of Duntov’s race-oriented thinking. Carroll Shelby’s Ford-powered Cobras began hitting the track around the same time as the new Corvettes and while Shelby’s upstarts were hardly “true” production cars, Duntov never wavered in his quest to keep the Corvette on top.

Chevrolet Lets Corvette Buyers Color Outside of the Lines


by Rick Kranz, as republished from Edmunds
Chevrolet allows Corvette buyers to do the unthinkable:
Order color combinations that are not recommended

Dateline 11.28.15: PORTLAND, Oregon — Chevrolet allows Corvette buyers to do the unthinkable: Order color combinations that are not recommended for the 2016 Stingray. For example, say a buyer wants a bright yellow model with a red interior. It’s not recommended, but it’s available for a price. Each model-year Corvette can be ordered in 10 exterior colors. Continue reading

For Sale: Zora Duntov’s Experimental 1955 Corvette $3,500 OBO — Time Machine Required


by John Gilbert as republished from Super Chevy
1955 Duntov Corvette

Dateline 11.24.15: There were only 700 Corvettes built in 1955, so that places 1953’s production run of 300 units at number one in rarity and bumps 1955 to second place. For a 21st Century Corvette collector buying a rare vintage Corvette can cost a bunch of money, but if one had a time machine that would make it a completely different story. With a time machine a fellow could go back to the April 1965 issue of Hot Rod magazine and snag Zora Arkus-Duntov’s 1955 Corvette test mule for $3,500 or best offer. Continue reading

Cadillac’s chief suggests mid-engined Corvette and Caddy version per Report


by Chris Chin as republished from
Rumors of a mid-engined supercar based on the Corvette have been around for decades

Dateline 11.24.15: Rumors of a mid-engined supercar based on the Corvette have been around for decades, basically ever since the Corvette came into existence. However, it never exactly came to fruition for possibly many reasons. But now, the rumor might actually lead to something since interest on both GM’s front and the consumer end have been picking up momentum, especially given GM’s new-found success with a lot of their new generation cars.

2016 Corvette C7.R Breaks Cover at Daytona


by John Machaqueiro as republished from
C7.Rs Break Cover: Corvettes hit the high banks of Daytona International Speedway

Dateline 11.23.15: In the old days of the American Le Mans Series, Corvette Racing had almost six months between seasons. As a result of the merger with Grand Am, that time has been cut down to less than three months. Development and testing is now fast tracked during the season with final tests scheduled before the Rolex 24 in late January. With the changes in the rules for 2016, Pratt & Miller has designed and unveiled a new pair of C7.R’s that embrace those new regulations. Continue reading

C4 Grand Sport Coupe & Convertible On Block at Mecum Anaheim – TWO VIDEOS

by Scott Teeters, Editor of Corvette Report
Sellers disappointed when reserves not met.


Dateline 11.23.15: The 1996 Grand Sport was the sixth Special Edition Corvette and did more to bring the moniker “Grand Sport” back into the consciousness of the Corvette community than anything else. Prior to 1996, it was mostly Corvette racing fans that knew what a “Grand Sport Corvette” really was – Zora Arkus-Duntov’s lightweight Cobra killer that he envisioned being offered in every Chevrolet dealership in America. It was a noble concept, but even Chevrolet General Manager Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen couldn’t get a special exemption from GM’s management to allow the Chevrolet build and sell Corvette race cars. (I know, it’s a bummer, man!)

As the original 1963 Grand Sport racers faded into the collective memory of motorsports, the legend turned into a myth, until slowly but surely, Continue reading

by Jamie Klein as republished from
Corvette Racing has confirmed its driver line-ups for next June’s Le Mans 24 Hours

Dateline 11.22.16: Ricky Taylor joins the American team for the 2016 edition of the French endurance classic. Taylor makes his return to Le Mans after a year’s absence alongside Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen, effectively replacing Ford-bound Ryan Briscoe. Continue reading

A Salute to the C6 Corvette: We all still LOVE big-blocks!


by Scott Teeters, Corvette Artist and Writer, Editor of Corvette Report
The awesome C7 stands on the shoulders of the C6 Z06!

Dateline 11.18.15: The C7 continues to rack up the kudos, but that doesn’t mean that the C6 Corvettes are less than awesome. Ever since the early days of the 1960s when Chevrolet started rolling out their mid-engine Corvette prototypes and engineering study cars, fans have been waiting for a new Corvette that is revolutionary, rather than evolutionary. Continue reading

Does Restomodding Make This C3 Corvette Awesome? VIDEO

77 restomod

by Collin Woodard as republished from Road and Track
“This car’s from the 70s when everything smelled of man-musk…and the cologne used to cover up said musk.”

Dateline 11.18.15: Oh, Mr. Regular is reviewing another Corvette? Hasn’t he already reviewed a C3 Corvette?​ Why do another one? This Corvette is a little bit different, though. This Corvette is a restomod. Specifically, this is Neal’s restomod. You remember Neal, right? He’s the guy who rescued the Vagabond Falcon. Continue reading
