Mini Corvettes hit the Track to Benefit Kids
There’s nothing like a little Corvette race for a good cause. No pun intended. This one featured Corvette go-carts battling it out in the parking lot of the National Corvette Museum for the 20th Annual Jr. Achievement’s Mini Corvette Challenge.
$20 million in greenbacks sitting inside the safe of my choosing is definitely worth more to me than $20 million floating in space. Apple pie à la mode is worth significantly more to my taste buds than apple pie paired only with a plate. One look at this week’s Wednesday wallpaper, and suddenly the equation “1 + 1 = 3″ begins making a lot more sense. Don’t be surprised if your computer desktop whispers, “I’m extra worthy” after you plaster these ‘Vettes and jets on your computer screen for the week. I mean, “‘Vettes and jets” — the combo even rhymes, so you know it was meant to be.
Here are the mangled remnants of a Corvette after the driver lost control of the car on a Norwegian highway. Apparently, the Corvette hit a barrier, jumped into another lane and then crashed into an oncoming car, causing a few other vehicles (including a Dodge Ram … yes, a Dodge Ram in Norway) to wreck.
Chimney Rock, Angels Window in the Grand Canyon, Cumberland Gap, Mount Rainier — just a sampling of some of the best sights in America … oh, and this 1965 Corvette Sting Ray 327/365 factory air-conditioned coupe. My eyeballs want to stick to this car like sap on a maple tree.
Sometimes you come across things on social media sites that you just have to share. I picked this one up from the official Facebook page for Lingenfelter Race Gear, owned by Corvette collector Ken Lingenfelter who also owns Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. It’s a pretty good stab at those Honda guys, and a few others who own imports. Hopefully you guys enjoy the meme after the jump as much as I did.
