Leslie J. Allen tours the National Corvette Museum and the assembly plant that makes the sports car. The factory in Bowling Green, Ky., marked its 30th anniversary last year and attracts as many as 50,000 visitors a year.
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.
Visiting the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit
While in Detroit for GoFurther, I had the opportunity to go to the Henry
Ford Museum. I only got to walk around the first 25% of the whole museum. I
saw the racing wing, the different camper vehicles, and the higher end cars
of the 20's and 30's. It was then off to the Energy wing to see the
generators that powered our towns over 100 years ago. A quick stop at the
Wienermobile, then I saw some of the tractor equipment of the 1900's,
including the prototype Ford tractor. http://bit.ly/MVCrS2

You may not know who this glamour girl is right away, but this "star" is
none other than Los Angeles' very own Billboard Queen. Yes, Angelyne, like
Madonna, with her single name, is known for purchasing billboards all
around Hollywood to promote herself. In addition to her love of everything
pink, the older celebrity struts around the streets of Beverly Hills in her
neon pink Corvette. She is never spotted out on the town without being
adorned in her signature Hello Kitty attire and trunk full of couture. The

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
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
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
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.
