    The National Corvette Museum's board of directors reportedly doesn't want to repair the sinkhole that swallowed eight vintage Corvettes this past winter -- at least not totally. Their plan is to create an open space approximately 25 feet by 45 feet wide, and 30 feet deep, along with a display area for one or two cars.

    For some strange reason, I did not want to fall for the Corvette. Like all car enthusiasts, I've always been a fan of America's supercar. In fact, I recall getting a book on the history of the car for my 10th birthday. Somehow, over the years, I developed an affinity for more refined motoring and left raw unruly cars by the wayside. I tried to resist... The Chevy Corvette is these latter things, and raw and unruly be damned, I fell in love with the velocity yellow Wolverine. Actually, it...

    You might recognise the yellow Aston Martin DBS below from the 1971 TV series The Persuaders, but this model is hiding a secret under the bonnet Do you remember the 1971 television series The Persuaders? It stars a young Roger Moore and Tony Curtis, who team up to solve criminal cases which have outwitted the usual justice system. It ran for 24 episodes over a single season, and 22 of those episodes featured the Bahama yellow Aston Martin DBS you see in the pictures above.That is the same car...

    A serious track weapon with a glorious 7.0-litre V8 engine, but it’s let down by a bit of a weight problem The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. It’s an iconic badge in the American muscle car world, tracing its roots back to late 1966. Chevrolet needed a homologation special to battle the Ford Mustang on the race tracks of North America. Behind the wheel of Camaro Z/28, the great Mark Donahue helped Chevrolet win the SCCA Trans-Am championship in 1968 and 1969. He stood on the top step of the podium...

    San Franciso, CA -- The Volkswagen GTI slots itself in performance automotive history alongside the Porsche 911, the BMW 3 Series, and the Chevrolet Corvette to name a few. I'm not being facetious. The 1976 Volkswagen Golf GTI spawned a segment that quickly gained a cult following. Every version of the GTI, starting from the MK2 introduced in 1985, set standards that many manufacturers attempted to emulate over the decades. The latest MK7 2015 Volkswagen GTI is the most powerful production...

    Chevrolet's Corvette has never been closer to being a true supercar than it currently is, now in its 7th generation. As if the arrival of the C7 Corvette was not news enough, as it coincided with the car's 60th anniversary in 2003, something happened earlier in 2014 where the home of Chevy's performance machine suffered some great losses... Losses to the world of Corvette enthusiasts, that is. At 5:44 am on February 12th, 2014, a sinkhole occurred in the Skydome area of the National Corvette...
