Biden Vette feature

Apparently, that yellow C7 bearing the custom license plate “THE – VP” we reported on last week was indeed Vice President Joe Biden’s wheels. Well, sort of. The Corvette was used in a parody with Biden and HBO “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus as part of the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an affair where Hollywood stars and the press come together to mingle and share a few laughs.

You’ve got to wonder if even General Motors expected the new Corvette Stingray to be as big of a hit as it is now. Sure, they definitely knew they had something special when all the reviews started pouring in, but the C7 is turning out to be one of the biggest home runs any automaker has had over the past decade. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find any sane person disputing that … even among fans of rival brands.
