Cindy Crawford Spotted Cruising in ’67 Corvette
I always revel in sightings of major celebrities in Corvettes in California, especially when they are as big as this one. Maybe it’s the fact that after spending time in Los Angeles where so many celebrities drive Ferraris and Aston Martins, it’s always great to see one who has a little more taste.
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.
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.
I’m not quite sure how I missed this one, but considering that it’s built on the beloved C6 platform, I figured it’s deserving of a few comments here, good or bad. The Soleil Anadi, hand-built in Italy, was showcased at the recent New York International Auto Show, and so far counts three owners in the Middle East as its exclusive customer base, according to a New York Times report.
