The Gorgeous all new 2014 Corvette Stingray
http://tinyurl.com/ckzyqlt Expert POV Luxury Car Reviews in HD! Subscribe Now for Updates! The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is currently available as a hatchback coupe only. The convertible, with its power-operated soft-top roof, is expected to arrive in the spring of 2014. There are two main trim levels, base and Z51. Within each, however, there are three sub-trims: 1LT, 2LT and 3LT. The base Corvette 1LT comes standard with 18-inch front wheels and 19-inch rear wheels, xenon headlights, heated mirrors, a removable roof panel, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, eight-way power front seats and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Electronic features include OnStar, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen display, Chevy's MyLink electronics interface, a rearview camera and a nine-speaker Bose sound system with two USB ports, an auxiliary audio jack, an SD card reader and satellite radio. The Corvette Stingray Z51 1LT further adds 19-inch front/20-inch rear wheels, exterior aero trim, performance brakes and suspension tuning, revised transmission gear ratios (manual transmission only), a limited-slip electronic rear differential, a rear differential cooler and dry-sump oiling for the V8 engine. All Corvette Stingray 2LT models come with auto-dimming driver-side and rearview mirrors, a 10-speaker sound system with HD radio, a head-up display, a cargo shade, driver memory settings, heated and ventilated seats and power lumbar seat adjustments. The 3LT is the same but with upgraded leather upholstery and a navigation system. For the Corvette Z51, adaptive suspension dampers are optional and come bundled with an upgraded traction management system. Other options for the whole Corvette Stingray line include a dual-mode Exhaust system and competition-style seats (late availability). All coupes come with a painted and removable carbon-fiber roof panel, and if you choose, you can order your roof panel either with exposed carbon fiber or transparent. Powertrains and Performance Under the Corvette's hood is a 6.2-liter V8 driving the rear wheels. Maximum power is rated at 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque -- up from 436 and 428 last year, respectively. Don't be unimpressed by what appear to be modest power gains, though; the new engine adds roughly 50 lb-ft of torque below 4,000 rpm over the outgoing model. With its optional dual-mode Exhaust, the Corvette gets a slight power Boost to 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. The new V8 now features direct fuel injection, variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation. Fuel economy should be very similar to the previous car, which stood at 16 mpg city/26 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined with the manual transmission. For the new car, a new seven-speed manual transmission is offered alongside a conventional six-speed automatic. The new manual uses the same gear ratios as the previous car, with the 7th gear acting as a tall cruising gear to incrementally improve fuel economy. The manual also comes with automatic rev-matching for upshifts and downshifts, which greatly simplifies and smoothes out shifting during enthusiastic driving.

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!





1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 427 Big-block Four-Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1967 Chevrolet Corvette coupe. It's powered by the original, numbers-matching 427 Big-block, rated at 390 horsepower. All the power is sent through the durable Muncie four-speed manual trans. This car has been kept as original as possible. It was owned by the original owner all the way up until 2008. This is a really nice survivor. Thanks for taking a look!

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.
