PINKS: All Out Invites Us to Rockingham this July 4th

Apr 22, 2015 - 10:11 AM - by NickJ

Do you guys remember the "PINKS" TV show? The show where Rich Christensen would line up racers at a drag stip and they would race each other for pink slips. and then later, they did "PINKS: All Out" where racers would compete in brackets for cash prizes? The show ran on SPEED and also on FOX for a minute. It was canceled years ago, and the concept bounced around for a little while. Well, Rich has acquired the concept from FOX and is bringing it back!

The owner of Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina is going to open up his raceway for a July 4th celebration of raw power, shiny paint, and testosterone. The dragway will host the PINKS crew for a taping during the July 4th weekend.

Now, you might be asking why I am telling you about a television show that is taping in NC. Well, our little site here has been extended a personal invite from Rich and Brian Bossone. They have offered a 20% racer registration discount code when you sign up for the weekend. Simply add PAO in the checkout and you will receive the discount.

They are doing a grassroots promotion of this event as they don't have a large buget to get this thing off the ground. I think it is pretty cool that they are reaching out to the forum to go straight to the car enthusiast source.

This year is a TEST for future shows, and they need all the racer and fan support they can get. Support this event and maybe next season will be coming to track near you. They will be leaving room for group gathering areas or self run car shows at the show as well. It should be a great weekend for car enthusiasts!

I, for one, hope that they keep the show about racing and don't let it devolve into the drama-fest that the old show ended up being about.


CHRISTENSEN REVIVING THE ICONIC "PINKS ALL OUT" CONCEPT

"The fact that racers and fans still want PINKS is both an honor and extremely ...humbling," Christensen said. "Their unwavering passion is the reason I'm... [Read More]

The 2015 Callaway Corvette Z06 will be at the Bash

Apr 21, 2015 - 1:47 PM - by jsvette
From a Callaway release today:

The 2015 Callaway Corvette Z06 will debut at the National Corvette Museum C7 Bash in Bowling Green, Kentucky, April 23 through April 25. Here's a sneak peek at the new package.
Based on Chevrolet's track-proven Z06, Callaway engineers' no-compromise approach takes this Corvette to an astounding power level. While advertised Callaway horsepower and torque are pending final validation, the Callaway package adds Callaway’s new GenThree supercharger system with 32% more displacement than the stock Z06 supercharger, improved manifold design and unique triple-element intercooling system.

Callaway engineers recognize that a key contributor to maximizing power is reduction of inlet air temperature. By exposing the supercharger's large plenum area to outside ambient airflow, the design takes advantage of the significant charge air temperature reduction provided by convective cooling. The completely redesigned intercooling system also helps maintain nearly ambient charge air temperature with exceptionally low air restriction. Plus, the supercharger housing geometry was configured to allow further optimization of the charge air path - all leading to increased power and torque without the compromises faced with underhood solutions.

For the $16,995 you get:
CALLAWAY CORVETTE Z06 STANDARD EQUIPMENT INCLUDES:
• Callaway GenThree Supercharger (pat. pend.)
with Triple-Element Intercooler System
• Callaway Supercharger Surround Hood Trim Ring
• Callaway Carbon Engine Covers
• Callaway High Flow Air Intake System
• Callaway Embroidered Floor Mats
• Callaway Anodized Aluminum Door Sill Panels
• Callaway Exterior and Interior Badging
• Callaway Underhood Build Plaque with Vehicle Identification Number
• Callaway Key Fobs
• Callaway Authenticity Documentation Package
• Callaway 3 Year, 36,000 Mile Limited Warranty

Chevrolet is set to debut the updated 2016 C7 Corvette at the upcoming National Corvette Museum Bash later this month, but if you’re feeling a bit impatient, Ohio Chevy dealer Coughlin Chevrolet has dug up some early info on the car through General Motors order guides.


Corvette Blogger first turned our attention towards Coughlin’s 2016 Corvette intel. According to the dealer, there will be a range of new body and interior colors, along with new colors for the convertible canvas roof. A new shade of yellow will replace the current Velocity Yellow shade, while a new red color called Crystal Red Tint Coat will also be on offer.


Convertible 2016 Corvettes will be offered with a Bastille Red canvas top or a Night Shadow Blue top. New colors for the interior include Spice Red and a new sueded black or sueded red option. Additionally, the Twilight Blue interior option will trickle down to standard cars from the C7 Z06 and the ability to choose either Red or Yellow stitching will return. As a side note, Coughlin believes some of these options will be part of a special edition package and may not be offered as standalone choices.


Other additional options for 2016 include two-tone seats, carbon flash and spectra grey exterior trim, a new full length Satin Black stripe, new wheel codes for both Stingray and Z06 models, and new exterior decals for the Z06. There’s also word of a carbon fiber hood option, however the C7 already has a carbon hood, leading Coughlin to wonder if an exposed carbon hood might be offered.


The most interesting nugget of info found lurking in the 2016 Corvette’s order guide was

C7 Sales EXTREMELY Strong!

Apr 03, 2015 - 8:35 PM - by elegant
Thanks to CorvetteBlogger, we have details on the powerful C7 March sales, and also historical monthly and yearly Corvette sales going back through 2006.

General Motors posted the monthly sales figures for March 2015 this week and we have great news for Corvette fans. The C7 Corvette – buoyed by sales of the 2015 Corvette Z06 – had its second best month ever and the highest sales totals since the very first month the C7 Corvette Stingray became available in October 2013.

For the month of March 2015, GM delivered 3,785 Corvettes which was an 8.8% gain over the 3,480 Corvettes sold during the same time period in 2014. Year to date (January-March 2015), a total of 8,517 Corvettes have been sold which is a 4.1% increase over the 8,179 Corvettes delivered during the same time in 2014.

A month earlier, GM reported 2,605 Corvettes have been delivered (February 2015). So March 2015′s sales increased a total 1,180 Corvettes or 45.3% over the previous month!

So why the healthy increase in sales during March? Corvette owners have waited a long time to get the high-performance Corvette with the auto transmission and Chevrolet finally started delivery of the Corvette Z06 with an 8-Speed automatic in March. Like the previous new model rollouts, GM built up an inventory of Corvette Z06s with the 8-Speed autos while they were doing their final quality checks and those Corvettes were finally released to be shipped to their respective dealers for customer delivery.

Another way to look at the sales figures is on a daily basis. The March 2015 Sales period was 26 days long. If you took the March total of 3,785 Corvettes, that means that 146 Corvettes were delivered to their new owners each day during the sales period.

Careful Please With That Z06 Home Run!

It is an annual rite of spring that means Opening Day is just around the corner.

A Velocity Yellow Corvette Z06 and a special Midnight Edition Silverado eased into their parking spaces high atop the Chevrolet Fountain behind centerfield in Comerica Park on Thursday. Each vehicle was lifted into place by crane – a three-hour process.

“As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball, what better way could Chevrolet show our love of the game than by giving our vehicles a bird’s eye view of our hometown team?” asked Paul Edwards, vice president, Chevrolet marketing.

Chevrolet has sponsored the fountain, which features an array of water displays and the sound of a tiger growling with each Detroit home run, for the last six seasons. The brand chooses select vehicles from its lineup to display each year.

“We like to think of these vehicles as the Chevrolet cheering section to drive those centerfield home runs,” Edwards said.
