OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: Red C5 in the Right Light
“SavageLand”, the owner of this Corvette of the Week, knows how to photograph automobiles. The guy has shot documentaries, and he has also photographed for RM Auctions.
Corvettes, like all sports cars, have low centers of gravity, so when you’ve got a ‘Vette on three wheels, you’re doing some hard driving.
Do you try to come up with clever ways to affix a front license plate at the risk of damaging your Corvette and its looks, or do you just deal with the possibility of getting pulled over for not having one?
Yes, it’s painted a very attractive, or magnetic, shade of red, but with those Z06 wheels and 15% window tint, the whole package comes together in such a way that allows this fiberglass-bodied car to take on ferromagnetic properties.
Hell, short of skydiving off the Empire State Building, I’d probably do just about anything for a chance to own a new Z06, as long as it was legal. The trouble is, when a former big-time high school football recruit insinuates that he was offered a new Corvette to play for the University of Alabama, it’s big news.
