Harley Earl Corvette: A One-of-a-Kind

Not too long ago, I was at the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance, and I was up close and personal with something I never thought I would be fortunate enough to see in person… the Harley Earl Corvette.  To be honest, before that day in Boca, I never really knew the details of Harley J. Earl’s one-of-a-kind 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (aka Shop Order 10323).  That is to say… I knew it existed, but...

Lingenfelter Chevrolet Reaper: Chevy’s Answer to the Raptor

If you’re a Chevrolet guy and like the idea of a high-performance, off-road pickup truck, you can’t like the Ford F-150 Raptor, but you can like the new Lingenfelter Chevrolet Reaper.  Yeah, that Lingenfelter… the guys who make Corvettes and Vipers with like a trillion horses.  The 2014 Chevrolet Reaper is actually a buddy project between Lingenfelter and Southern Comfort Automotive.  Take one 2014 Chevrolet...

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Takes on the Nurburgring [Udpated: Price]

After ten hours and 1,000 miles of Nurburgring track testing, a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 driven by Adam Dean lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in an astonishingly quick 7:37.47.  Yeah, 7:37.47… That’s quick.  And, it was in the wet.  The track was slick, and by the end of the run, it was raining.  I know what you’re thinking… “Isn’t a Chevy Camaro Z28 a muscle car?  And, aren’t muscle cars...

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Spotted in Key West ahead of Frankfurt Debut

I ran into three 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertibles this weekend in Key West ahead of the scheduled debut at the 2013 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show.  Here are photos of one of them including a sort of look at the interior.  As you can see, it looks a lot like the 2014 Chevy Camaro Coupe and even more like the photo of the 2014 Camaro Convertible that Chevy leaked recently. 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Front View 2014 Chevrolet Camaro...
