TechTalk with Chad Hembree. We took a trip the National Corvette Museum to cover the C5/C6 bash and the 2012 Centennial Edition Corvette. This is an excerpt from Episode 230 featuring the trip. Be sure to watch the bloopers after the credits. The wind was terrible that day and we did not have sufficient windscreens. Please overlook the sound issues as we will be more prepared in the future. http://www.chadhembree.com
The Shamrock Shoot - Behind The Scenes
In early November of 2011, our crew trailered a '54 black Corvette and a
ZR1 Corvette to the Texas panhandle town of Shamrock. The city and a
art deco former service station from the 1930s are located on what was once
Route 66, which stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles.
We took the cars there to shoot two entries for the Chevy Super Bowl
Commercial contest. Both
spots are whimsical, off-the-beaten path, and fun in style. Though we
didn't make it to the finals, we
worked hard, but also had a good time shooting and producing the spots.
This video is a
behind-the-scenes 'making of' look at how they both came together....

Broward Sheriff's Corvette Looking for Victims on the Turnpike
A Corvette Police Car from Broward Sheriff's in Palm Beach
looking for victims on the Turnpike! It had to be the craziest sight to
see when you're speeding. He kept it locked at 80mph so if you passed him
that's 10 over and a ticket. Pretty cool car though.

2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial Edition Test Drive & Sports Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/corvette/2012/ 100 years ago Chevrolet
was created. And to celebrate this centennial anniversary; Chevy has
released a Special Edition Vehicle to commemorate this milestone. The 2012
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial Edition is one mean looking sports car
that is sure to become a collector's item. The Corvette Z06 has a base
price of $75,600 and the Centennial Special Edition Package adds $4950 to
that total. The vehicle tested here also benefits from the Z06 Ultimate
Performance Package which adds another $7500 onto the base price.
The Corvette Centennial Special Edition features a cool appearance package
along with special edition wheels and a Magnetic Selective Ride Control
suspension. The first thing you notice on the exterior of the Corvette
Centennial is the sexy Carbon Flash Metallic paint job. The Satin Black
rims come with a great red accent stripe and are sized 19-inches up front
and 20-inches in the rear. The tires are high-performance Michelin PS CUP
Z-Rated tires. These bad boys measure 335/25ZR20 in the rear which provides
a huge contact patch. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control Suspension comes
equipped with a set of shocks that are filled with a magnetically active
fluid that changes in viscosity to provide a firm or softer ride depending
on the driving situation. Another great addition to the 2012 Chevy Corvette
Centennial Z06 Special Edition is the massive Brembo Carbon Ceramic Brakes
that come with Special Edition pained Calipers.
The 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial is powered by a huge 7.0 liter
(427 cubic inch) V-8 engine that produces 505 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. of
torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheels through an awesome 6-speed
manual transmission. Fuel economy is not bad considering the power. The
Corvette Z06 manages 15 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. The Z06
engine is at home on the track and with the upgraded Centennial Package, a
high-performance cooling system is added. The Corvette Z06 also has a top
speed of 198 MPH.
On the inside the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Centennial is both sporty yet
comfortable. The seats are very supportive and feature nice suede inserts.
Both the shift knob and the steering wheel are covered in suede. The
Corvette is known for having one of the most futuristic heads-up display
found on any vehicle. This driver focused unit displays vehicle speed,
RPM's, lateral G-Force, and the engine oil temperature. There is a Bose
sound system, Bluetooth, and Satellite Radio offered on the Corvette Z06.
