OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Orange Crush

Restored 1974 Chevrolet Corvette Four-Speed Coupe Featured

This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette has been painstakingly restored by forum member “ORANGEBROTHERS” who says he’s “bringing C3’s back to life one at a time.” I’d say that’s quite the noble cause. With this ’74 I must admit, I developed a bit of a crush at first sight, and then I developed a craving for a certain orange-flavored soft drink … by far, that is the most bizarre reaction I’ve had to any car, and on that bombshell, this C3 gets my nod for “Corvette of the Week”.

OPTIMA Presents Corvettes of the Week: A Winning Pair

Two C4 Corvette ZR-1s Featured

Corvette Forum members love to talk trash on me because of my love for the C4 Corvette … particularly model years 1992 to 1994. I realize generation four was not a banner era for the brand, but I think C4s would be remembered more fondly if the ZR-1 were the only variant of Corvette produced during that time. At about $60,000 in the 1990s, it was an expensive car, but it was a formidable player on the world stage competing with the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo. I dream of owning a C4 ZR-1. Forum member “We Gone” (a.k.a. Steve) is living my dream … times two.

There are simple mods like upgrading your air filter, to complex mods like engine swaps. Lighting mods, however, can run the entire spectrum, from basic to highly technical and everything in between. Whether you want to light up your Corvette like Clark Griswold lit up his house in “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”, or you have a more restrained lighting mod in mind, this post is for you.
