2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Wind Buffeting

December 31, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

December weather along Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles forces my hand when it comes to removing the top on our long-term 2014 Corvette Stingray. Hard top removal is easy, but at freeway speeds (65 mph and above), the vibrating wind over the top of the Corvette becomes harsh.

Once I got going on an open highway in our Vette, I couldn't hear anything my passenger said below shouting level. And even slouching down in the seat to escape the pulsing air flow didn't stop it from inducing a minor headache. Putting the windows down helped a bit, but any future freeway journeys will assuredly be done with the top snapped into place.
