Let’s face it, the Auto Show has been dying for a while. Manufacturers who once spent millions on lavish displays and hospitality booths have left even the major market shows for a few years. Some shows altered timing of the event to find better weather and/or less competition (cough, Detroit). Then there was a global
Over the last year or so, I’ve noticed a shift in attitude at some car shows and events, and I like what I see. Doors are opening, literally. Keep Away When I first started going to car shows and even entering my car in them, it was with Corvette clubs in Texas. The cars displayed
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the entire world. Economically, socially, politically, everything is in a state of confusion and, in some cases, fear.

Chevrolet didn’t have a choice regarding this dramatic move with the Corvette. Anyone who’s driven a C7 hard, specifically the Z06 or ZR-1, knows the current configuration
If you’re a car enthusiast with a modicum of free time on your hands, I bet you have engaged in the wonderful flight of fantasy that is the on-line car configurator.
