C7 Corvette Stingray Amercan Flag Eagle

When it comes to carrying that coveted “Made in America” tag important to a lot of U.S. car buyers, the new Corvette Stingray tops the list … well, along with the Ford F-Series, which I think still puts the C7 in pretty good company as far as respected American nameplates. Both vehicles tied at first place for “Most American-Made” vehicle based on a study by the Kogod School of Business at American University that evaluates the domestic content of vehicles sold in the United States.

2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible

There’s something about seeing this thing in its natural state without all that computer-generated crap used to enhance photos. Then again, maybe it’s just my own personal pet peeve in knowing how computer-enhanced images can make some things look a lot nicer than they are in real life. Don’t get me wrong, I love all those studio shots General Motors released last week of the new 2015 Convertible Z06. They’ve been creating quite a buzz, but seeing that blue topless Z06 on the stand at the 2014 New York International Auto Show really brings it to life.
