The C6 Chevy Corvette is long overdue for a replacement, and it’s coming. Just not fast enough for the ravenous auto journalists who latch on to every rumor about the next-generation Corvette. By getting everyone all hyped up, are these journalists setting themselves and their audiences up for disappointment?
Do you have a favorite Corvette? Is there an option that presses your button? Two stalwarts of the hobby published their own books that should tell you all you need to know about your favorite year (and then some). Those books are The Corvette Black Book and Mike Yager’s Corvette Bible.

Recently my car was a victim of vehicular vandalism, and I’m now in the process of getting the whole car resprayed.
