2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Today (Tuesday, October 1) is the day we take delivery of our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Click through to watch a live webcam starting at 10:30 a.m. Central Time (8:30 a.m. Pacific Time).

UPDATE: We have our 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray in our possession now. If you missed the live webcast, here is a shot of Dan Frio behind the wheel with Kurt Niebuhr holding the camera.

And then this happened.

We recorded the live webcam and cut the five-hour experience down to show the best parts.

Our year-long adventure with the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray begins now.

    Is it coincidence that the museum is in Bowling Green and the car is green...

  • No. Its a conspiracy.

    You can see it from another angle here: http://www.corvettemuseum.org/webcam/camera2.shtml

  • It is good that you are helping the environment by getting a green car.

    EV marketing has taught us that green paint equals high mpg. It's based on the same principle as Greddy stickers on a Civic.

    Man, I so would like to have one of these.

    you lost the link to the site on the main blog post when this moved to the long term posts from the original post. But if you click on Comments you can see an alternate link. Donna, can this be fixed?

    @noburgers Did you mean this link? http://www.corvettemuseum.org/webcam/delivery3.shtml

    To quote Jeremy Clarkson, "well done fat man from Kentucky."

  • greenpony greenpony Posts:

    As opposed to "medium rare fat man from Kentucky"?

  • eville_stu eville_stu Posts:

    From the second web cam, I can see other new owners picking up there cars -- main demographic seems to be old fat bald men, not that there's anything wrong with that.

  • diigii diigii Posts:

    What happened to the pickup at 10:30am Central Time? The same cars are still sitting there.

  • diigii diigii Posts:

    And any videos of Frio and Niebuhr picking it up and burning some donuts outside? :)

  • dderosa dderosa Posts:

    It took HOURS but now the Corvette is ours.

  • dderosa dderosa Posts:

    And there is already a red Corvette in its place.

  • stovt001_ stovt001_ Posts:

    Completely unrelated, any chance you're looking to add someone to the editorial staff (and by extension, the LT fleet checkout list)?

  • zman24_ zman24_ Posts:

    Not sure I like the color. I think it might have been Wayne Cherry who said "All Corvettes are red. Any other color is a mistake." I tend to agree.

  • farvy_ farvy_ Posts:

    Already doing burnouts on a 0 mile engine? So much for breaking it in gently. But I guess it doesn't matter to Edmunds since they will be selling it in a year anyway.

  • stovt001_ stovt001_ Posts:

    I think that Wayne Cherry quote is outdated, and I'm not sure I agreed with it in the first place. Ferraris are red, and Corvettes need their own signature color. They race in yellow and have for quite some time now. Yellow should be the official Corvette color. However, I dare you to look at a '63 split window Stingray and tell me green isn't a valid color for a Corvette.

  • ryster ryster Posts:

    Way to break in those $450 (EACH) rear tires...was that really necessary? It is your car, and you can do whatever you want with it, but sometimes a little restraint is a more prudent choice. The readers will not feel sorry for you in 6 months when you complain about the car sitting at Stokes for a new pair of rear tires, and the $1000 bill that comes along with it.

    Wow - a burnout. You mean a 3400-lb. rear-drive car with 460 hp will do a burnout? Zzzzzzzz.
