http://MPGomatic.com takes you on a walkaround of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with Tadge Juechter at the New York City premiere event. Tadge is the Chief Engineer/Vehicle Line Director - Corvette at General Motors.
The Corvette first premiered in New York at the GM Motorama Show sixty years ago. This historic event featured pristine representatives of each of the previous six generations of the Corvette, including the very same car that was shown in NYC decades ago.
The C7 Corvette Stingray was first shown at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, just prior to this event. The red 2014 Corvette shown in this video was shipped to Scottsdale, Arizona immediately after this event to be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auction. It sold for $1.1 Million to Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports.
Parts of the audio in this video are a tad noisy. There were photographers and journalists crawling all over the car while we were shooting. Why they couldn't make the tiny effort to close the driver's door and stop all that dinging is anybody's guess. Keep your ears out as one guy SLAMS the door on this $1.1 million dollar pre-production car.
Shooting this video was one of the coolest little opportunities that's come my way in this MPGomatic adventure. Many thanks to General Motors for the invitation, to Tadge for his time, and to you for watching.
Having the opportunity to create videos with top automotive engineers and race car drivers just might be the best part of this gig. This piece was shot (handheld, for the most part) with a Canon XH A1s, using a Rode directional mic.
JVC KW-V20BT Review: Slambo Gets Bluetooth/USB/Pandora/Nav - Ain't Fuelin'
Slambo's audio system gets an upgrade with a JVC KW-V20BT double din LCD
head unit. This DVD receiver includes hands-free Bluetooth, USB input,
Pandora integration, SiriusXM capability, and AppLink.
Applink allows the unit to display a handful of popular Apps on the LCD
screen. I take a quick run through Waze, DashCommand, and I Heart Radio in
this Ain't Fuelin' behind-the-scenes segment.
I need to post links to Honda Civic dashboard removal vids.
2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost 1.0L MPG Road Test
We put a remarkable new 1.0 liter EcoBoost Ford Fiesta to a three-part MPG Road
Test. Can the tiny three-cylinder turbocharged engine deliver 40 MPG? 50 MPG? 60
It all depends on how, when, and where you drive it ...
The first leg of the road test is a round trip from central NJ to Pottstown
PA, primarily on Interstate Highway 78. The second leg is a run from
Allentown, NJ to Long Beach Island through the Jersey Pinelands on Route
539 to Route 72, over the Causeway. The third leg is a trip up the Jersey
Turnpike into Manhattan, via the Holland Tunnel.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost
is a $995 option. It is only available on the SE model and is only offered
with a five-speed manual transmission.
I'll post a link to my full review in the Autobytel channel once it's ready
Honda Civic HX Project SLAMBO Build Preview - Ain't Fuelin'!
Say hello to SLAMBO!
She's an original owner five-speed manual 1999 Honda Civic HX Coupe with
122K on the clock. Relatively well preserved, but stinky, Slambo rolled in
festooned with a bunch of cheap shiny bits. And a slam (hence, the name).
This is the first (low-buck!) build for our new series, Ain't Fuelin' ...
stay tuned as we rip it up and put it back together.
Gas Mileage Calculator Tutorial
The MPGomatic.com Gas Mileage Calculator makes it easy to compare the fuel
costs for two vehicles. This will show you how much you can save each year,
month, or week by switching to a more fuel efficient car ... or visa versa
This quick tutorial demonstrates how to use the calculator.
Does it make sense to jump into a diesel, hybrid, or conventional
gas-sipper? Plug in your OWN numbers into the calculator and you'll see in
an instant ... :)
C7 Corvette & convertible @ Barrett Jackson WPB 2013
i finally got to see the red C7 Corvette and Convertible. the gray car had
been auctioned off few hours earlier for $1 million to that same man that
bought the red one. actually he did buy these cars but rather the rights
to the first VIN number of both cars. this time there were no barriers.
the GM representative there told me that the Z06 version of the C7 would be
out in 2015. there will be no grand sport and no ZR1. but the Z06 would
out perform either one. near the end of this video you can see i got a
recording i got a live recording of the live recording of Barrett Jackson
on SpeedTV. the sound has been removed due to the music playing too loud
over the sound system at the auction.

► 2014 Chevrolet Corvette PRODUCTION
owling Green Assembly has produced approximately 1,000 Corvette Stingrays
for customer deliveries. Most of these vehicles are expected to be
delivered to dealers within the next few weeks. To expedite delivery,
vehicles may be shipped out of build sequence, which is a normal part of
any new vehicle launch.
The Bowling Green facility underwent a $131-million upgrade to support
production of the Corvette Stingray, including approximately $52 million
for a new body shop to manufacture the car's all-new aluminum frame
in-house for the first time.
The lightweight aluminum frame is the foundation for the most powerful
standard Corvette ever, with an SAE-certified 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 460
lb-ft of torque (624 Nm) -- and 460 horsepower (343 kW) and 465
lb-ft (630 Nm) with the available performance Exhaust system. It is also the most capable
standard Corvette ever, with Z51-equipped models able to sprint from 0 to
60 in 3.8 seconds, run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph, achieve
1.03g in cornering grip and stop from 60 mph in 107 feet.
Complementing its performance capability with efficiency, the Corvette
Stingray delivers the best fuel economy of any sports car on the market --
an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. No other
car offers more than 455 horsepower and greater than
29 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the seventh generation of the sports car,
which has been built exclusively at the Bowling Green plant since June
Pricing for the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe starts at $51,995 including
destination. The Convertible is priced at $56,995 including destination.
Production of the Stingray Convertible will begin by the end of this year.

BMW, Range Rover, Acura, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls
Royce, Volkswagen, Nissan, Ford, Mclaren, Cadillac, Corvette, Jaguar,
Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Lotus.
I apologize for the slight shakiness in the camera. Image stabilizer was on
and I didn't not realize until later.
