Video of ZR-1 Spyder Lifted from Sinkhole will cause Uncontrollable Sobbing
Prepare your tear ducts: video of the 1993 ZR-1 Spyder being pulled out of the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum hit the Web last night, and it’s painful to watch.
Sure, I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I certainly don’t mind a few custom features on the new ‘Vette — and don’t get me wrong, I truly like some of the stuff Forgiato does, but honestly, I can barely stand to look at these things, and I would prefer to refrain from even calling them Corvettes.
We just had an unfortunate reminder of why our enthusiasm for enjoying Corvettes should never, ever outweigh a need for safety. Over the weekend, a Corvette driver was arrested on suspicion of killing a 27-year-old in a single-car collision (different crash pictured) in the San Francisco area after it was determined he had been drinking and taking drugs.
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.”
There’s always one right? That one person who regardless of what everyone else says, figures he’ll go against the grain. Yup, and believe it or not, there’s one who even exists among all the journalists in the world who have weighed in on the award-winning 2014 Corvette Stingray. Wait, was that “award-winning”? Oh yeah, award-winning, which is why it almost seems odd when you hear anyone say anything bad about the C7.
