I remember in one neighborhood I lived in years ago, one of those middle-aged nosy matrons came around after I had finished cutting the grass and said, "You know, we rake our grass clippings around...

A legitimate question . . . Who needs the ME?

Apparently, Chevrolet believes that THEY do. And while I certainly don't "need" one - My current C7 is fine for me - I fully intend to give it a long,...

To each their own. Just understand that everyone who doesn't like what you like, or do what you do, isn't wrong. The rack used on the Route 66 TV show did have straps - and I have them for mine - but...

Since my 1962 (when I take the hardtop off of it) is a dead ringer for that season's "Route 66" TV show car, I had been thinking since I got it a few years ago of adding the luggage rack, vintage...

We seem to be forgetting that all of these sports car brands that have introduced crossover SUVs into their lineups did so because they were unrepresented in this currently lucrative market segment. ...

Everybody has their own opinions, here are mine: No more FE cars once the ME is in production, and it will be a couple of years before all versions of the ME are available. Any predictions beyond...

I can't imagine a single business model that supports production of two distinctly different Corvettes. When production of the ME car starts, that's it for the FE car.

I'm ashamed to admit that even though I was somewhat aware of the "factory gap" at the bottom of the driver's door on these cars, I have never really looked that closely at my own '62. This thread...

Driving down from Central New York in the 2014 Premiere Edition convertible (No. 219 of 550). It's about the only mileage the car gets, which is a shame. I think I actually drive the '62 more....

I tend to agree that when the ME car arrives, that will be the end for the FE car. While they may continue to build the C7 and the ME on the same line for a (brief) while, they FE cars will all be...

Just my opinion here - I don't claim to know anyone, or have some secret undisclosable pipeline to Bowling Green. I think that when the new mid-engine Corvette appears in mid-2019 as a 2020 model,...

I honestly think that while the high-zoot versions of the new ME will be around $120K, you will be able to get into the base version for around $75-80K. We'll see.

Those who know don't talk, and those who talk don't know. It's always amusing to read the comments here by folks who "know" what's going to happen, and when, and how.


No, they don't.

For me, it had to be the '62. It is the ultimate development of the C1, featuring the new-for-'62 327 engine and the slightly larger cockpit for a bit more room. Some say the lack of...
