I put miles and miles of walking in for your viewing pleasure, capturing every single Corvette at the 2015 SEMA Show. This is the place to check out all the hottest builds and trends in the hot rodding hobby. Racecars, streetcars, you-wouldn’t-dare-take-it-out-of-the-garage cars…all in one massive car show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. There are so many cars that they are literally spilling out almost onto the strip. One the show floor, the midyear Corvette was the hot ticket. So much so that Vette’s parent company, The Enthusiast Network, had two mid-year’s including the famous Mickey Thompson 1963 Corvette Stingray that was in Hot Rod magazine this past month, which happens to have the famous “mystery motor” between the fenders. Also in the booth, the immaculate restomod 1964 Corvette Stingray, equipped with a Chevrolet Performance LT1 and Roadster Shop chassis– who also built the car.
Some of my favorites from the show floor also include Greg Thurmond’s latest C2 build, meanwhile his wife’s 1964 Corvette Stingray is among many Corvettes competing in the Optima Ultimate Streetcar Invitational. There are more C5s and C6s than any other make or model by far competing this year. Not only will these Corvettes run hard after the show, in nearby Pahrump, but throughout the show the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School had its 2015 Corvette Z06s making hot laps on the Chevrolet autocross course. Chevrolet Performance had two C7s in its display, including the Ron Fellows Stingray equipped with a new line of Z06 upgrade parts. Overall the C7 was a popular choice at the show, as a display piece for the latest and greatest such as a host of Z06 replacement superchargers and forced induction kits for the Stingray.
