Enjoy this video, an artistic Corvette road trip with samples of K. Scott Teeters’ Corvette art.

HI, this is Scott Teeters, Corvette historian and artist. Most days I’m either working on stories and art work for Vette Magazine and Vette Vues Magazine, or packing automotive art prints.

We have over 900 automotive art prints in our Amazon store and on two other websites. I have been a contributing artist and writer with Vette Magazine since 1976 and a monthly columnist with Vette Magazine since the spring of 1997. Continue reading

A Look Back at the Mid-Cycle Makeover for the Fourth-Generation Corvette

The Illustrated Corvette Designer Series No. 220: Mid-Cycle C4 Makeover

Art & Words by Scott Teeters as republished from Vette Magazine’s SuperChevy.com website

The mid-cycle makeover of the C4 was rolled out so quietly and with such stealth, it was hardly noticed. Things were tough inside GM in the early ’90s, so the major upgrades were on the installment plan. What is undeniable though is that the 1992 Corvette is very different from the 1989 Corvette. Here’s how things unfolded. Continue reading

BRAVISSIMO! C7 Z06 – NEW Z06 Tribute Art Print

1963 C2 Z06, 2001 C5 Z06, 2006 C6 Z06 & 2015 C7 Z06

Z06-Tribute-63-01-06-15

2015-Z06-SideAs a salute the success and rave reviews of the new C7 Z06, my new prints show the original, 1963 Z06, the C5 2001 Z06, the C6 2006 Z06, and the C7 2015 Z06, available in three unique graphic treatments – Brushed Metal, Diazo Blueprint Paper, and Kraft Paper!

The Z06 has worked out to be one of the most interesting stories in Corvette lore. What started out as an obscure “for racers only” RPO option that hardly anyone knew about, has become GM’s flagship performance car. This is nothing less than astonishing. Heck, even General Motors’ CEO Mary Barra just got herself a black-on-black Z06 convertible. I was joking with Doug MacDonald (Dave MacDonald’s brother), “You think the workers might have been a little nervous bolting together The Queen Mary’s Z06? NO PRESSURE, guys! HA!” Kidding aside, it’s good to see that she has good taste!

2015-Z06-FrontUp to the end of April 2015 Chevrolet reported 8,206 Z06s sold. That number already beats out the C6 Z06’s best sales year from 2007 when Chevrolet sold 7,760 Z06s. With a total-to-date (as of the end of April 2015) of 31,377 Corvettes built, 2,618 were Z06 models, that’s 26.18% of the 2015 production so far. The plant has a full two more months of figures to announce, as production of the 2015 Corvettes ends on June 22, 2015. (Check out the 2015 Z06 TV Commercial, click the “Continue reading” link below)

A look back at Chevrolet’s experimental, prototype, concept, and show car Corvettes

by Scott Teeters as republished from Vette Magazine

General Motors makes hundreds of kinds of cars and trucks. Some sell hundreds of thousands of units a year, which makes Chevrolet’s Corvette a complete enigma. Given the small number of Corvettes sold every year, it is a modern American manufacturing miracle that the car survived for 61 years.

The Corvette was “officially” born on January 17, 1953 at the GM Motorama Show at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. To understand the impact of Harley Earl’s two-seater sports car concept car, you have to look at typical cars of 1953. The car was low and sleek, and wasn’t over festooned with styling gimmicks. Based on the response from attendees, Chevrolet rushed the car into production, and the rest is history. Continue reading

Gary Ricketts’ Flaming Silver Bullet Sting Ray Corvette

Mannington, New Jersey, Du Pont Safety Consultant, Gary Ricketts’ Pro Street ‘65 Sting Ray Coupe

South Jersey lifetime resident, Gary Ricketts came of age at the tail end of the muscle car era, with the party peaking before he got his driver’s license in 1971. Like most teenage car guys his age, he got to watch his favorite muscle cars duke it out at tracks such as Atco Raceway, Englishtown, Maple Grove, and Cecil County Drag-O-Way. When it comes to cars, what a young man is exposed to usually sets their taste in performance cars for a lifetime. Continue reading

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is Chevy’s New World Order Supercar

2015-chevrolet-corvette-z06-illustrated

by Scott Teeters as republished from Vette Magazine

The Z06 lineage is amazing: ’63 RPO Z06 “Racer Kit,” ’01-’04 Hardtop “Tough Guy,” ’06-’13 “Badass Quasi-racer,” and now the ’15 “Supercar for Everyone.” The C5 Z06 took advantage of the hardtop’s more rigid structure. The C6 Z06 (coupe-only) took the hydroformed frame structure to a new level and was crafted in all aluminum. The base C7 coupe and roadster now have an aluminum structure that is more rigid than the C6 Z06. It’s so good that the design can easily handle an additional 190 horsepower in coupe and convertible configurations. Continue reading
