2018 Corvette ZR1 Prototypes at Laguna Seca
Chevrolet had a contingent of their performance cars in California for the track day and they were spotted Ben Hsu who posted them to a couple of the Corvette groups on Facebook. Ben says four different Corvette ZR1s were there with two having the smaller wing packages and two "Big Wing" cars. Also on the track was a Z06 and the new Camaro ZL1 1LE: More 2018 Corvette ZR1 prototype information here: http://www.corvetteblogger.com/tag/2018-zr1/
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #41: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 427 Roadster
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek The Corvette changed for 1968, evolving into the 3rd generation for the American sports car. The sleek new styling looks like full speed standing still, a trait shared by most Corvettes. This week's Muscle Car Of The Week could be considered the top-gun of all '68 Corvettes, as it carries a 500+ HP 427 under the hood, an optioned named the "L88". L88 cars featured not only a distinctive hood, but a whole list of performance enhancements... the F41 performance suspension, J56 heavy duty brakes, a Muncie M22 4-speed transmission, and of course, the 12.5:1 compression 427 V8. The LeMans Blue roadster in the Brothers Collection is one of only 80 built in '68, and it might look like a nice Sunday cruiser, but it was a thinly disguised race car sold to the public!

1968 Corvette "The Skunk"
This is my 1968 Corvette. The Big Block Dynoed at 587 HP. This car is not a show car, drag car, nor daily driver. It is simply my fun driving weekend car. I rarely get to see this car from a pedestrian's point of view, since I am usually the one driving, so we decided to make this video while cruising around town. The burnouts were just for fun. The paint scheme is influenced by Baldwin & Motion SS427 / Phase III / GT Corvettes. I have tremendous respect for the Motion cars, but unfortunately I cannot afford a real one, so this is as close as I can get. Thanks to my wife and my pal Weeman for their help with this video. I hope that you like it.
