c8.r race car is just the beginning for corvette

I doubt there has ever been (well, maybe there has) a car that has received more scrutiny and pre-delivery publicity than the 2020 Corvette (C8). All this before the first one is delivered to the anxious public. According to reports, Corvette lovers are lining up with plenty of deposits to get the first-year offering. Word has it that more than 38,000 have been preordered. In the interim, while all of us are getting all sideways waiting for the new C8, now delayed a month or longer because of the union strike, there is a little matter about the C8.R. Yes, the race car version. Let’s face it, Corvette has made its “bones” in the world of racing since its inception and has had every level of success, or lack thereof, one…

bred to race

“Corvette’s independent four corners, equalized weight, wind-tunnel styling, and performance options blend its street tractability into the roar of high-speed competition.” That’s how automotive journalist Roger Huntington introduced a thorough, five-page examination of the all-new 1963 Corvette’s engineering features in a January 1963 Motor Trend article called “Bred to Race.” “This is the one we’ve been waiting for,” Huntington wrote. “And it’s all the rumors promised and more. This is a modern sports car. In most ways it’s as advanced as the latest dual-purpose sports/luxury cars from Europe and this includes the new Jaguar XK-E, Ferrari GT, Mercedes 300-SL, and all the rest. The new Corvette doesn’t have to take a back seat to any of them, in looks, performance, handling, or ride.” An improvement in ride quality was one of the goals…

Q I enjoy reading Vette magazine cover-to-cover each month, I own a C6 Corvette and recently had my gas gauge (indicator) wandering all over the place, going from empty to full and now it just reads empty all of the time with the low-fuel warning message on.Have you seen this before? All of the other gauges are operating properly and my average fuel consumption seems to be correct. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Andrew A Andrew, I think we can help with this problem. It is very common for the fuel gauge to fail on the C6 Corvette due to sulfur deposits building up on the fuel level sensor. The sulfur contamination can disrupt the electrical continuity on fuel sending units and lead to erratic or false fuel gauge readings. Chevrolet…

coming full circle

In the spring of 1967, Tom Lichty dug down deep into his shallow pockets and bought the car of his motor driven dreams. At the time he was a 17-year-old high school senior in Paradise, Pennsylvania, working part-time at Shirk Chevrolet right there in town. He was a young man ready to make his way in life; and to get wherever he was going, all he needed was a cool ride to call his own. Young Tom was a motorhead through and through, and by working at Shirk he became exposed “up close and personal” to the many products the Bowtie brand had to offer. Right away, the Corvette model just grabbed his attention, and soon became “the car” he would seek out as his first main squeeze. And who can…
