I love my Corvette, and my other Car is a ________. Tell us what else You Drive.

Corvettes and other Vehicles Slider

As a Corvette lover, it’s safe to assume you are also a car lover in general. Most Corvette fans have room in their hearts for other types of cars. Perusing the forums, I’ve seen that you have a wide variety of vehicles sharing space with your Corvette in the garage: from the Honda Civic and Toyota Camry, to the Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 and the Audi R8 Spyder (in toy-car form). One forum member even said his other car was a “pair of Nikes.” Tell us what else you drive.

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”.

Michelin Presents Wallpaper Wednesday: “Black and Yellow”

Yellow C6 Corvette Slider

I’ve heard songs that mention turbo ‘Vettes and little red Corvettes, but I’ve never heard a song that mentions a yellow Corvette. It would have been nice if Wiz Khalifa’s song “Black and Yellow” was about a Corvette, but the lyrics actually signified his allegiance to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the car in the “Black and Yellow” music video was a Dodge Challenger SRT8. Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” music video has 171 million views on YouTube, but maybe it would have already hit 200 million if it had featured a Corvette like the one above. OK, maybe not, but a ‘Vette in the video would have been nice.

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.
