This 1974 Chevrolet Corvette has been painstakingly restored by forum member “ORANGEBROTHERS” who says he’s “bringing C3′s back to life one at a time.” I’d say that’s quite the noble cause. With this ’74 I must admit, I developed a bit of a crush at first sight, and then I developed a craving for a certain orange-flavored soft drink … by far, that is the most bizarre reaction I’ve had to any car, and on that bombshell, this C3 gets my nod for “Corvette of the Week”.
I find triple-black C7 Corvettes as addictive as cigarettes are to rebellious 14-year-olds. I could look at one of these all day, but as arresting as ATX-C7′s new Corvette may be, that’s not what makes his car Corvette of the Week. This quote makes his car Corvette of the Week: “Coming from a Porsche 911, this car is SO much fun to drive.”
The C7 Corvette represents a major leap over the C6 in all categories. In terms of design, that leap is best delineated when you compare their rumps. The contrast is striking, isn’t it?
Recently purchased by Corvette Forum member “WLDvette13″, this Arctic White C7 with the carbon fiber roof just does it for me. Because this Stingray has changed my mind about Arctic White C7s, it gets the nod for “Corvette of the Week”.

The National Corvette Museum recently emailed Tom this “sneak preview” picture because he purchased the New Corvette Owner’s Photo Album.
