When you’re in the automotive publishing business, one of the consequences of the job is that you often get asked, “how do I get sponsorship for my race team?” What I usually find, though, is that the racers have only a vague idea of what a sponsorship really is, or how to go about getting one.

Recently my car was a victim of vehicular vandalism, and I’m now in the process of getting the whole car resprayed. Seen as both a blessing and a curse, I’ll be without my own daily driver for over a month, but at least it will be like new again when I get it back. Shouldn’t it be a crime against nature though?

Road racing in America was a relatively recent sport and one that was quickly becoming popular. Even Harley Earl’s son, Jerome (Jerry) C. Earl, was taken with it and in the closing months of 1955, had bought a 1953 Ferrari 250 MM Vignale with the intention of taking it racing.
Our mission with Project Y2k – take America’s Sports Car and make it better on a blue collar budget, turning this decade-old platform into a car that’s good at a little bit of everything.

I have a confession to make. Even though I’m going to be writing about cars for powerTV, I haven’t actually driven a car in the last two years. Scandalous – I know!
What is “Corvette Online,” you ask? There are a lot of ways to answer that. One possible response would be that it’s the newest addition to the powerTV family of “digital enthusiast publications,” a close relative of LSXtv.com, but that’s really not all that helpful…

There was a time when astronauts were bigger than rock stars in the United States. GM waned to make sure that the world saw those brave men driving the fastest, coolest, bravest car around, the Corvette. We take a look back at the astronauts and their Corvettes.

We all did stupid things growing up. Hopefully we learned from them, and we’re better, more responsible adults for having made the mistakes we did. But then again, for many of our readers our adolescent indiscretions took place in a very different time.
We go behind the scenes with Canton Racing Products to see how they research and build oil pans for your particular application. Inside you’ll find a surprising amount of technology for such a simple product.

Performance at GM can be broken down into many groups and several activities. This is in no way intended to be a comprehensive guide to all of this, but it will at least give you some idea of what GM has to offer. First, and foremost, GM has several incredible new performance cars that you can choose from.
There’s no easier way to get out of the stands and onto the track than drag racing. Nobody’s born knowing how to drag race though, and everybody was a newbie once. Going to the track for the first time can be intimidating – nobody wants to look like they don’t know what they’re doing.

Before you start thinking that I’m going to sneak a shop safety spill on you, let me assure you that’s not the case. This month’s article deals with how much skin we’ve left in engine bays and how much blood has been spilled on the garage ﬂoor. This is a universal fact in doing maintenance: THERE WILL BE BLOOD.

It is quite simply impossible to predict the future. Such is the case for the C7 Corvette. We’ve heard rumors, we’ve seen renderings – yet there is not a single reliable, absolute piece of information except that there will eventually be a C7 Corvette.

The last two weeks have been filled with “car guy” moments – more so than what I usually get at my day job as Product Integration Manager at GM Performance Parts. The irony here is that even though I work for GM, and I’m constantly talking to the media, I rarely get the opportunity to test our latest product.

Dr. Meyer, the current Product Integration Manager for GM Performance Parts shares his insider thoughts on the LS platform, hot rodding, and the youth movement in the automotive world.
A press release is coming shortly, but us shop dogs are too giddy not to let everyone know that Cornwell Tools has joined on board with the powerTV garage as our official tool supplier and has helped outfit the powerTV shop we work in with a KILLER set of tools.
Considering that we are a video production company and that we publish online magazines, it comes as no surprise that we occasionally geek out a bit on new camera hardware. The latest gadgets to really get our techno-blood pumping are the new Go Pro HD HERO cameras.

In his 1953 letter titled “Thoughts Pertaining to Youth, Hot Rodders, and Chevrolet,” Zora Arkus Duntov called upon Chevrolet management for a new generation of performance engines, parts, and cars from Chevy. He specifically called on Ed Cole’s team to develop a powerful new V8 for the Chevrolet Corvette.
