i was at the 7th annual Chevrolet day and classic car show last sunday when i ran across not one, or two....but 3 of these, straight out of Bowling Green, Kentucky.
what you guys are seeing here is the newest addition to the Corvette family, the C7 Stingray.
powered by a 6.2 liter all aluminum V8 named the LT1 (kinda running out of L-type code for your engines, aren't you GM? the last time they used the LT1 code for its engines was the 1990's small block v8 that was on the Impala SS, Camaro and Corvette C4). making 455/460hp, all handled though a 7 speed manual or 6 speed auto. the suspension has also been improved by using a nano-composite material for their monoleaf suspension, which will make it handle with the best out there.
at first, i wasn't too keen on the car's looks because of the fact they got rid of the rounded quad lights in the back end. although the C4's were close enough and the C5's were oval shaped, its GT-R like side intake and the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta like silhouette but enough nit picking about that.
the engine sound was straight up brilliant thanks to those 4 pipes, i'm beginning to like this one already.
no, i'm not riding GM's dick if this sounds like a promo, it describes what i feel about it. this Vette is straight up gorgeous.
This here is a 1970 SS Chevelle. with all leather interior (original) stock racing rims, Hurst linkage (which is top of the line for these types of cars). This is probably the most beutiful car I ever layed eyes on... AND MY DAD'S SELLING IT... WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I NEVER EVEN GOT TO DRIVE IT, AND I'M SOOO CLOSE TO HAVING MY DRIVERS LICENSE!!!!
One of the funkiest and most fun car shows I went to in 2010 was in a little village called Monte Rio. Across from the car show was the Rio Theater with three very interesting cars on display. For today's presentation, I give you the theater and the three cars.
The first of the three cars in front of the Rio is a hot cool custom. I'd guess based on a Chevrolet body but I don't know that for sure and I have been known (ahem) to be wrong on occasion.
Very cool flame paint job makes it look like this car is in re-entry orbit.
Sweetie and I will be choosing one of these cars to drive. This custom is a prime candidate. It's hot and it's cool - all at the same time!
"1980 Triumph TR7" Ohsweken, Ontario Nikon D50, July 2012
"I love taking photos of our Triumph, my Dad worked many hard years to bring this car back to being a beautiful, driveable piece of art. I know it makes him proud to see me take interest in it, and that's what I'm all about..."
This car has been in my family since before I was even around, my Dad has cherished this car since the day he bought it. It had to be completely rebuilt because of an accident it was in, where the entire front end was run over by a dump truck that took a corner too sharply. When I see this car, it makes me smile because it reminds me of my Dad. I really love this car, I love everything about it.
I took several photos of the car this past July after the car show in Brantford. I love taking it to car shows, it gets a lot of compliments and I know that makes my Dad happy. He added side pipes to it, and it's a very loud car because he put a new engine in it. I love starting it up when there's unsuspecting people around it. (hehe) We took the photos by the Grand River before we got hit with a huge storm.
