VETTE columnist K. Scott Teeters’ latest fine-art print celebrates the new ’14 Corvette Stingray in six different views, including the front, rear, and side; the next-gen LT1 engine; the interior; and the stunning, retro-inspired Stingray badge. Each print measures 11x17-inches, is signed by the artist, and comes numbered in a series of 500.

The Eastwood Company’s new 30+1 retractable work light/flashlight combo features 30 powerful surface-mount LEDs that emit more than 200 lumens—twice as much as a traditional LED. Two powerful magnets and a slip-resistant rubber over-molded handle make it tough enough for automotive and shop use, but it’s great for around-the-house chores as well. The light features a 1.5-hour run time and recharges in four to six hours.
