Have you ever wondered what the point of a car show is?  Well, here are some car show basics: You may wonder, what could possibly be so much fun about accumulating so many cars in a single area?

Corvette Concept Car

Corvette Evolution Told Through Its Concepts

Some Were Only Dreams, Others Were the Cars That Dreams Were Made Of Chevrolet’s Corvette has been with us for over five-and-a-half decades. Along the way a multitude of “concept” versions have been produced. Concept is the name given to cars that are experimental, either in design, engineering, and occasionally both. The latter was the category into which several Corvette concepts fell in the 1950s, … Continue reading Corvette Evolution Told Through Its Concepts

Oracle Side Markers

Mods! Mods! Mods! I got my Oracle Side Markers installed!

As you may have read last week, I received a set of Oracle Side Markers (and I posted a photo of the box in one of my blog entries)… and today I got them installed and am totally psyched by the results. But before I wax poetic about this simple but beautiful mod, I probably have to explain what side markers actually are.  Side markers on … Continue reading Mods! Mods! Mods!

Corvette Wave

Save the Wave – First official mention of the Corvette Wave

Save the Wave!  If you happened to read an earlier blog post of mine, I mentioned that the Corvette Wave was nearly 50 years old… so, just in case you didn’t believe me, here’s the article from the August/September 1969 issue of Corvette News (so please don’t blame me for some of the slight sexism in the article!): Ever since Corvette No. 00001 first met … Continue reading Save the Wave – First official mention of the Corvette Wave

Rain rain go away – Come again when I don’t want to drive

Rain rain go away – Come again when I don’t want to drive… Sheesh, this weekend was a wash, figuratively and literally. I had planned on showing my vette at a local car show on Saturday night but the weather just wouldn’t cooperate. It started raining on Friday and continued off and on all weekend.  As a result, no car show for me, and it wasn’t … Continue reading Rain rain go away – Come again when I don’t want to drive

DIY Soundproofing for your Corvette… for $25

Quite possibly the last thing you think of when buying a car is soundproofing it. I know I didn’t. When I bought my Corvette Grand Sport Coupe in May 2018, it was a dream come true – I first saw the Stingray in 2014 and loved it, but thought it might just be a phase… so I waited… and looked… and waited some more. Four … Continue reading DIY Soundproofing for your Corvette… for $25

How to Wash Your Car Like A Pro – Quickly and Easily

Although I love a clean car as much as the next guy/gal, before I bought my Corvette Grand Sport, I never washed my car myself.  NEVER!  Although I cared about how my car looked, I thought that washing it properly would be too difficult (especially since I didn’t have a garage) and that it would cost way too much to get it done as good … Continue reading How to Wash Your Car Like A Pro – Quickly and Easily

Corvette Love – Planting the Vette Seed at a Young Age

So, for as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted a Corvette. What little boy (or girl for that matter) doesn’t? Now, I was born way back in 1976, but my first recollection of actually SEEING a Corvette in person wasn’t until about 1986 or so, and boy was it a beauty. One of my father’s friends at that time (who will remain nameless, … Continue reading Corvette Love – Planting the Vette Seed at a Young Age

Welcome to my Vette Life – Intro to my Corvette Blog

  Hi, and welcome to my Corvette blog!  My name is Rob, and I finally become a 1st-time proud Corvette owner at the ripe-old age of 41 on May 4th, 2018 when I picked up my brand new, shiny 2019 Watkins Grey Corvette Grand Sport Coupe from Kerbeck down in Atlantic City. So, not only did I hit the jackpot down in A.C., I was … Continue reading Welcome to my Vette Life – Intro to my Corvette Blog
