OPTIMA Presents Corvettes of the Week: A Winning Pair
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.
Z06 fans: now you can have your cake and eat it, too. GM has released images of the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible. I think it is as beautiful as it is fast. You’re looking at the most powerful convertible Chevrolet has ever built, and probably the most fun way to mess up your hair.
What is it about European Corvettes? They’re so menacing. An American version of this Z06 would remind me of a tire-smoldering weekend at the track, or a bit of hooning between the stoplights. When I look at this “Wallpaper Wednesday” car, I see a Corvette that looks like it just chased an innocent Ford Fiesta through a British shopping mall.
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.
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.
