The 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport has received a lot of love, with many calling it the greatest C7 Corvette variant yet. By combining the cornering and aerodynamic capability of the C7 Corvette Z06 and the naturally-aspirated power from the C7 Corvette Stingray, the Grand Sport represents the best of both worlds. Deservingly, AutoGuide has name...

They had the tired, gray-eyed look of soldiers too long on guard duty. And yet the only guns involved were for spraying, soldering and gluing, along with welding torches, wrenches and. perhaps most important of all, the broad-face hammers of the metal shapers. Because of the pressing deadline some of the men hadn't slept more than a couple hours each night for the past wee...

A few years ago, while visiting a mountain getaway place my wife and I own in western North Carolina, I took a vehicle into Asheville for service. I was there about four hours, and in the course of talking with the service manager, I learned about a Corvette collection that was nearby.

In 1971, ad man Danny Reed drove past a used car lot in Austin, Texas. It would be decades later before the lottery came to Texas, but he hit the jackpot anyway that day.
Since Reed was both a Corvette and U.S. space program enthusiast, what he saw on the car lot had him making a U-turn almost immediately.

The C7 Corvette Z06 is an amazing vehicle that can compete with European models that cost more than twice as much. It's a performance bargain with a base price of $79,450 for a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 650 horsepower. There are only a handful of models on sale that can compete with the Z06 for less than $100,000. Even though the Z06 is a great bargain for its level of performance, it can sti...

If you’re a fan of the Chevrolet Corvette, you know that there’s a big gap in both performance and price, between a standard Stingray and the high strung Z06. Well, you probably also know that that spot has now been filled by this Grand Sport. But, while the original 1960’s era Grand Sport was a pure track car, the 2017 version will spend most if it’s life on the street. So, let’s find o...

It took 25 years to create their first “special edition” Corvette. Although the Silver Anniversary Paint was a $399 paint-only option in 1978, when combined with Aluminum Wheels shod with the White Letter P255/60R-15 SBR tires, this combo made for a fine-looking Corvette. Four years later, Chevrolet rolled out the 1982 Collector E...
