Evidently, the team at Chevy has no plans on slowing the momentum it’s been gaining with the C7. Then again, why should they? Less than a couple of weeks after debuting that hot new convertible Z06 everyone has been raving over, the carmaker announces that it will also be offering two more limited design packages.
So how does this sound? Chevy: “We’ll give you a few hours to photograph the new 2015 Convertible Corvette Z06 for a chance to win $5,000.” Well, that’s exactly what happened, and a New York-based college student by the name of Dan Wang walked away with the cash and the opportunity of a lifetime.
It appears the jury is still out on whether all of the “Magnificent Eight” Corvettes damaged in the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum will be restored. Some of the cars (like the 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06) are so badly mangled that it’s hard to imagine what it would take to actually restore them. Of course, the Museum has already said it will display all the damaged Corvettes through the summer for visitors to see. Now it seems museum officials might leave a few of the cars unrestored and on display permanently.
Behold and feast your eyes on the 2014 Callaway Corvette. Set to make its official debut tomorrow at the National Corvette Museum, the modified Stingray features Callaway’s third-generation supercharger system with 620 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque packed into that LT1 V8.
If you’re up for a good story that captures the true passion for Corvettes, look no further than the one of Lynda Patterson and her Ruby Red 40th Anniversary model. After years of dreaming of donating the car to the National Corvette Museum, the Louisville native recently did it in memory of her late husband, Mike Patterson, who died of a brain tumor in 2011.
