A Corvette for Every Year

October 29th, 2014

Peter Max Corvette Collection

Before yesterday I’d never heard the name Peter Max. Maybe that’s because I’m too far out of touch with pop culture, or maybe that’s because I’m not involved in the world of art.

I am, however, involved in the world of cars, and Peter Max has quite the car story.

Mr. Max, as you might have heard by now, owns one of each Corvette produced in the years 1953 to 1989. That’s a total of 36 unique ‘Vettes, which have sat in New York parking garages for the last 25 years.

The story of how they got there, and why, is unbelievable.

Two Surprising Cars to Challenge the Porsche 911

August 16th, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

When you’re the best in the business, everyone else wants to beat you. When you’re the best in the car business, everyone else wants to build a better car.

The thing is, when you’re the best, you rarely lose. When you feel the competition getting close, you up your game and make sure whatever you do next sets you apart and shows the world exactly why you’ve earned the title “The Best.”

Cars Coming Soon: C7 Corvette Better Not Look Like This

August 23rd, 2012

C7 Corvette?

The next-generation Corvette could debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. There’s no official word on if that’ll be the case or what it’ll even look like, but there’s so much speculation and excitement about the car that it’s already impossible to ignore.

Considering GM’s poor track record of keeping cars coming soon a secret, it’s pretty remarkable that the C7 Corvette still remains an object of speculation. There have been heavily disguised spy shots, but nothing concrete revealing the car’s final design or specs.

In an effort to keep its super-secret C7 from leaking before the big reveal, GM will even suspend tours next month of the plant that builds the Corvette. After September 14, according to a report in The Detroit News, the factory will close to retool for production of the next-generation car. So much for a curious member of the public spilling the beans with an iPhone.

So, until GM finally pulls the sheet off the new ‘Vette, we’re left with unofficial renderings and speculation about what’s to come. I really hope the latest guess proves significantly off-base.
