2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Hard Top Removal
November 25, 2013
It is mid-November, but you wouldn't know it judging by the weather in Los Angeles. It's 76 degrees on Pacific Coast Highway, and I want to hear the fabulous V8 soundtrack coming from our long-term 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. So I pull over, throw three simple latches and the top pops out with ease.
I open the trunk and there are four mounting points to secure the lightweight piece of carbon fiber so it doesn't slide around during inevitable high-speed maneuvers. Having a second person to help lower it into position would make scratching the paint less likely, but I'm extremely careful and in under a minute, I'm on the road, enjoying the autumn sunshine along the coast.
Take that, expensive, complicated, fragile convertible tops.
