Would you let your mom ride shotgun in this?

I have to say this is one very hysterical video. You really have to give props to this mother. She was a total trooper. I don’t even want to think about how my mother would react in the same situation. I know I tend to put the petal to the medal as well. How would your mom act if she had the opportunity to ride shotgun with you in a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 while you were hot lapping around Seca?

Check out the video…. Enjoy the screaming. She’s hysterical.

2012 Chevy Corvette Z06 Takes A Spin Around Germany’s Nürburgring!

I think most people know about my love for Corvette. It happens to be hands down my all time favorite Chevrolet. Seeing as I just got back last week from the 24hr Le Mans race I figured I better share this video with you of the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 taking a spin around Germany’s Nürburgring. Turns out our race time improved by almost 20 seconds. The 2012 comes stacked with a ton of updates. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. The drive is something else.

The Corvette ZR1 may be the bees’ knees, but there’s certainly a lot to be said about the mid-range Z06. For 2012, the Z06 gets a host of updates, and in order to prove the car’s performance prowess, Corvetteengineer Jim Mero took a brand new Z06 fitted with the Z07 chassis package to Germany’s Nürburgring, only to find out that it’s capable of ripping off a 7:22.68 lap time.

For those keeping track, that’s 20 seconds faster than the last Z06 record lap (set in 2005), and only three seconds slower than the fastest ZR1 time. Color us impressed. – AutoBlog

If you are like me than I am sure you are patiently awaiting the arrival of this new Corvette….. Ok, you can stop drooling now.

Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept! One good looking truck!

Chevy Colorado Rally Concept

Chevrolet has come out throwing punches! Check out this new Chevrolet Colorado Rally Concept! It’s an awesome looking truck and it looks like it could take out anyone in the rally circuit. I don’t know about the rest of you but everyone at Classic Chevrolet has been patiently waiting to see what the actual production version of the Chevy Colorado will look like. My hopes are that it will resemble this concept they have shown us. Turns out that Chevrolet has decided to show the live version of the concept at the Buenos Aires International Motor Show….. Maybe it’s time for me to take another vacation. AutoBlog is just as excited as I am to see this rally truck. Don’t believe me? Check out what they think below.

An aggressive and strong style are the immediate visual cues given off by the Rally Concept, which is meant to handle some serious off-road driving. A pair of integrated winches (one up front and one out back) will help should you actually manage to get the Colorado Rally Concept stuck. That ought to prove to be a difficult task, thanks to the 305/60R18 BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires, long-travel suspension and 2.8-liter diesel engine.

Keeping up the aggression, the interior of the Chevy Colorado Rally Concept is equipped with racing seats and five-point harnesses. The driver or co-driver can adjust tire pressure and suspension settings from the cabin, while either can also enjoy some fresh air from the vents cut into the acrylic side windows.

To say that this truck is built to run off-road is an understatement.

Dear General Motors,

Make this truck. And sell it in the States. Please.

Sincerely,

Autoblog.com

Um, General Motors I believe that the greatest Chevy fans are here in Grapevine, TX. Can you please let us have it too?

Thanks!

Did You Know Your Chevy Can Out Run Decepticons?

We are inching closer and closer to the release of Michael Bay’s latest Transformers movie which is set to hit theatres July 1, 2011. I hate to admit it but I am looking forward to seeing it. One of the things I love the most about the Transformers movies is the fact that General Motors and Chevrolet play such a huge role in the movie. Well I love the special effects too.

So, it’s only natural that Chevrolet come out with a commercial that will piggy back off the Transformers movie. With that I give you this commercial. Yes, it’s true a Chevy Camaro may not actually be able to out run a decepticon in real life but it sure would be fun to try.

1984 Chevy Camaro And One Serious Car Chase.

There is something exciting and exhilarating about sitting in front of your TV watching a car chase go down. I’ve seen many car chase’s on TV in my life. This one I hadn’t seen before today until a friend sent it over to me. Now kids, don’t try this at home. Parents, don’t drive your new or used Chevy crazy either.

Check out this 1984 car chase from the TV show “TJ Hooker” from the 1980’s.

As a safety precaution if you ever see a car chase headed your way on the freeway…. Take my advice and just move out of the way. You’ll end up looking like a scene from this TV show.

Indianapolis 500 Pace Car To Be Driven By Donald Trump!

The 2011 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car is none other than the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS. You can not deny that this is one bad looking Camaro! Word around the block is that Donald Trump will be the man behind the wheel of the 2011 Camaro SS at the 2011 Indianapolis 500. The Indianapolis 500 is one of racing’s biggest races of the year. The race will be on May 29, 2011. One of the many traditions of the Indianapolis 500 is to have a celebrity drive the pace car. It looks like Trump and his hair will be turning left in circles behind the wheel of one gorgeous Camaro Convertible.
