OPTIMA Presents Corvettes of the Week: A Winning Pair

Two C4 Corvette ZR-1s Featured

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.

In fact, my only real complaint is that the all-black Corvette driven by Scarlett Johansson who stars as the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in the film, didn’t get more screen time with the actress.

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.

1.5-Millionth Corvette Comes Up in One Piece

Sinkhole 1.5 Millionth Corvette at National Corvette Museum (8)

OK, so it looks like it was part of a monster truck stunt gone wrong, but at least it’s in once piece. Corvette #1.5 million is the seventh of the “Great Eight” Corvettes to be removed from the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum.
