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.

How Cheap Will Gas Get?
Gasoline has cracked the $2 per gallon level in some parts of America. I've
seen it just under $2.20 here in NJ. How low is it in your neck of the
woods? How long will it stay low?
It hit 50 degrees today, so I thought I'd go for a drive in Slambo (my 1999
Honda Civic HX project car) with a couple of cameras.
Elio Motors: 84 MPG for $6800?
What do you think? Can Elio Motors really pull off an 84 MPG three-wheeler
for only $6800? Will they be a success or another DeLorean?
They tried opening a plant in Michigan years back, but that deal went
nowhere. Lets hope they're successful this time.
Sparco R100 After Market Seat Install / Review - Ain't Fuelin' Honda Civic Build
This video covers the installation a set of Sparco R100 bucket seats in our
1999 Honda Civic project car (a.k.a.: Slambo). We thought about using late
model Honda or Acura seats from the salvage yard, but decided to go with a
fresh set of R100s, instead.
The R100s are the most affordable seat in Sparco's street line up. They're
pretty basic, but have good lines.
Changing the seats is one of the most dramatic changes you can make to the
interior your car. The '99 Civic was an easy swap, because the OEM seats do
not have integrated air bags.
The install portion of the video was shot in July 2014. The second part was
shot on New Year's Day, 2015

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.
Brand NEW C7 Corvette Interview
I saw the C7 for the first time and it was great! I am still iffy about the
tail lights, but in person they are so much better than in the pics.This
video is my version of what I think is a good walkaround. The hard top
coupe with the carbon fiber top that was in the trunk was a z51 Vette. The
convertible was also a z51 vette I tried to cover the whole car and "Lady
Stingray" did a good job with the verbal overview. Any questions feel free
to comment below! She said that the car will be in the mid $50,000 range
and it will be out in August!!! Im excited! I also asked her if I could sit
in in, and she said NO :(
