Z06 National Corvette Museum Delivery

Roy and Rosemary take delivery of their 2009 Z06 at the National Corvette Museum. This is an experience that every new Corvette owner should have. We also participated in the Buyers Tour to follow our Z06 every minute on the assembly line. What an experience that is. The Assembly Plant workers are so friendly and appreciative of a buyer.

Corvette Museum Sinkhole : Top Cars Retrieved - Video
Video of the tops cars retrieved from the sinkhole inside National Corvette Museum. Historic Vehicles Pulled from National Corvette Museum Sinkhole for Chevrolet to Commence Restoration Efforts March 2014, Bowling Green KY: Generations of car fans worldwide will be relieved to know that the iconic,irreplaceable vehicles damaged in the National Corvette Museum sinkhole have been retrieved - and are on their way to General Motors Design in Warren, Michigan for repair and restoration. The collapse occurred on Wednesday, February 12 at approximately 5:40 AM CST in the museum's domed section. Fire Department officials estimated the hole to be approximately 40 wide and 25 to 30 feet deep. Among the vehicles damaged included: a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, a 2009 ZR1 Blue Devil 1962 black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, a 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette, a 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette, a 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette and a 2009 white 1.5 Millionth Corvette. General Motors Design in Warren, Michigan, will lead the project. The cars will be shipped to the Mechanical Assembly facility, a small specialty shop within GM Design, where the best restoration approach will be determined. Mechanical Assembly has been part of GM Design since the 1930s, and today maintains and restores many of the vehicles in the GM Heritage Collection and GM's historic concept cars. The National Corvette Museum is independently owned, and supported solely by charitable donations from enthusiasts. It is currently accepting donations on its website to assist in refurbishing the facility. Donations are tax-deductible.





National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky
Images taken at the museum, which is also the site of the only remaining Corvette factory, I believe. The first music selection was the one that gave me the idea for the show. The second one I felt was obligatory. The third was used because I like to use uncommon version of common songs. See my Railpark show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei_-_h94IeA The last selection was for giggles and .I just felt that "Little Red Corvette" was just a little too easy to use. The vintage Vette picture in watercolor at about 4:21 is altered to hide the reflection of MY BELLY in the fender!

1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette, cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack" article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine, rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower, Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks! Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/RoadkillShow, http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/hotrodmagazine Google + - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com





2001 Z06 Mallett Hammer Recovery
The last of the "Great 8" Corvettes has been pulled from the depths of the 40 foot wide by 60 foot deep sinkhole that collapsed within the Skydome building of the National Corvette Museum exactly eight weeks ago, marking the end of the first phase of rebuilding. The 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 was one of two Corvettes that's whereabouts were initially unknown after the sinkhole happened. The car was finally discover this Monday, upside down with the nose pointing towards the red Spire in the center of the room. It is, by far, the most heavily damaged of all eight Corvettes.





Chevy z06 2015
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 The Z06 we photographed was fully loaded with the Z07 package, Stage 3 carbon aero trim kit, and optional carbon-kablooey interior. As you can see, there’s a Z06 for, well, if not exactly everyone, then a wider swath of humanity’s more impatient ­drivers, all of whom will be swamped by admirers at parties. Prepare for the eager smiles of your audience to droop slightly when you say you bought the automatic, as up to 70 percent of Z06 buyers are expected to do. This is a natural, instinctual disappointment, conditioned by the expectation that real sports cars have sticks, mounting evidence to the contrary notwithstanding. We drove both the manual and the automatic Z06 and feel that the stick, with its notably soft and seamless clutch takeup, is still the best choice. Rev matching sounds like a hateful automation of the heel-and-toe skill until you get used to it. Then you wonder why all manuals don’t have it. Or just turn it off. Or use it to learn proper rev matching and then turn it off Please pause here for an important message about tires. If you’ve followed our preview coverage, you already know that there are now a lot of Z06s to choose from. There are coupe and convertible body styles. There are two transmissions, a seven-speed manual with automatic rev matching and an eight-speed automatic. And there are three trim levels, dozens of options, and three separate aero packages. Then there’s the mega Z07 Performance package that further weaponizes the car with carbon-ceramic brakes, a carbon-fiber aero package, a slightly revised suspension tune, and different tires. The Z07’s run-flat Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer almost-slicks replace the base run-flat Michelin Pilot Super Sports and are, to borrow from Mark Twain, the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning. Back to the test numbers: Um, holy crap. Riding a Z06 through the first four gears feels like putting a saddle on Superman, though the Z06 is 200 pounds heavier than the old ZR1. Obviously, there’s a squidge more power, but this is down to the race tires and the fact that today’s automatics are often faster than manuals in a straight line. We didn’t even use launch control, a simple flat-foot drop in full auto mode being all that was needed to produce these fireworks from the test equipment. A line that includes a 650-hp thunder wagon with the sophistication and poise of the world’s best sports cars. There, we said it. The Z06 must be ranked among the world’s best. You know that we here at Car and Driver are not idle flatterers, our job being to find the faults for you in haste, before you have to live with them at leisure over 72 months of payments. However, the Z06 completely fulfills its mission to be a super Corvette. It is an accessible American fantasy intended to inject joy and fascination and, let’s face it, a healthy dose of awe into the driving experience, such that there’s not much left to shout about except details. Details such as a 60-mph nuking of three seconds flat, set by a Z06 equipped with the Z07 Performance package and an automatic. This car tore the quarter-mile a new one at 11.1 seconds at 127 mph, scorched the skidpad with 1.19 g’s of grip, and stopped from 70 in an astonishing 128 feet, the latter two figures setting C/D records for a production car. We also tested a slightly less potent manual-trans Z06 [see bottom of page 2].





The recovery of the 1 Millionth Corvette
Since the sinkhole opened up in the Skydome at the National Corvette Museum on February 12, 2014, the milestone 1 millionth Corvette has been wedged precariously over an open space. With the potential of further damage from slipping and falling further, an unscheduled rescue effort was launched to recover it. The team lassoed the rear wheel in their first attempt and it was carefully pulled up. The next step was to lay it back down skillfully over a place where the custom seats wouldn't be crushed allowing workers to strap it up for retrieval. The whole operation took 1 hour and 51 minutes, but here are the highlights.
