Jeff Mudd has added good-look styling to his Competition Yellow ’96 convertible
Jeff Mudd is styling big-time in his C4, which was high style and rare in its factory configuration.

Phil Peachey’s bright yellow C5 convertible is, well, just peachy
In today's well-rounded Corvette environment, the properly-dressed C5 requires a combination of exterior muscle, interior refinement, handling prowess, and engine modifications to produce 400 horsepower or more, with a gutsy exhaust note to boot. Phil Peachey, a real estate broker from Davenport, Florida, has rounded all of those bases with his yellow 2001 convertible, a C5 that gathers stares going down the road, attracts attention at shows, and runs in the low 13s on Phil's inquisitive forays onto the quarter-mile.

Dressed for the Nines
Car magazines can get you in trouble. Just ask David Stone, a good old boy from Arkansas, who says, "In '95, I was reading Hot Rod and they were talking about Vortech superchargers and how good they'd make a car run. So I had a Vortech put on my '92 Corvette. And I liked the way it ran."

The Time Machine: This '69 Stingray roadster is 31 years young
George Varela of Miami, Florida is one of the lucky ones. This magnificent Daytona Yellow 1969 427 roadster was purchased new by George back in 1969 with only a few miles on the odometer. Today the clock reads just 25,000 - that's less than 1,000 miles per year of driving over 31 years. Those miles are put on mostly on weekends when he shows this low-mile beauty.

Beyond Awesome 2002 Z06 by Hib Halverson
For 12 minutes or so, at a not-just-illegal, but an obscene rate of speed, I ripped up the tight turns and short straights that make Glendora Mountain Road. After eight miles, faster than I've ever made this run before, I reached the overlook above Morris Reservoir which I consider the top of "GMR". I parked, got out and stood back 50 feet, studying this Electron Blue rocket.
