OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Laguna Blue Flame

2014 C7 Corvette Stingray Featured

This week’s Corvette of the Week comes from “Jesterissimo”, but to the mortals outside of Corvette Forum, he’s known as “Rob”. This 2014 Stingray is sitting on a drop-dead gorgeous set of HREs; they go with the Laguna Blue Tintcoat like chips go with salsa. Yum.

Altering the Color of Your Corvette Upholstery's Stitching Before-After Featured

It’s been established in previous features that forum member Jagamajajaran knows how to visually modify his cars in proper fashion. When this guy tinted the rear bumper reflectors on his yellow C7, I wrote, “This should be a mandatory mod for all C7 Corvettes.” Now he’s at it again with something he calls the “Best $2.49 Interior Mod Ever” — a simple technique for changing the color of contrast stitching.

OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Fresh out of the Wrapper

Triple Black C7 Corvette Stingray Featured

I find triple-black C7 Corvettes as addictive as cigarettes are to rebellious 14-year-olds. I could look at one of these all day, but as arresting as ATX-C7’s new Corvette may be, that’s not what makes his car Corvette of the Week. This quote makes his car Corvette of the Week: “Coming from a Porsche 911, this car is SO much fun to drive.”
