Corvette Racing News

Corvette Racing finished 3rd and 4th in the season opener 12 hour race at Sebring. The Corvettes finished behind two BMW M3's. This was a great start to the season for Corvette Racing and we are sure to see an improvement over last year. The team also started using the recently approved rule change "paddle shifter" during this race. The next race is in Long Beach California April 16th. Read More at Corvette Racing>>>

C7 Corvette

No news yet of the new Corvette. We are speculating that big news is on the horizon since GM has had no propaganda reports. We can only hope!

On a side note the Transformers Movie with this movie car is scheduled to come out in July 2011!

C5 Corvette

From the Factory all C5 Corvette's except the Z06 came with run flat tires. The Z06 came with a repair kit that you could use on your C5 with non runflat tires. Another option is to use the spare wheel and tire that came with the late model GTO. These will fit on the C5. All you would have to do is to supply a jack and proper tools to change the wheel on the side of the road.

C2, C3, C4 Corvette

After the VIN number the next most important thing to decode on your Corvette is the Vehicle trim tag. The trim tag can be located on the firewall or cowl area. It contains information about the specific model, trim, assembly plant, paint code, and a few options. The body build date code is also stamped on this tag. If anybody needs help decoding these tags just give us an email at
