Transformers Corvette Stingray Concept

Jun

Transformers Corvette Stingray Concept - Muscle Cars BlogIf you take a closer look at this Speedster and then compare it to the original 50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept that was shown at the Chicago Auto Show in 2009 as well as in the movie Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, you will see some major differences: A different hood with dual openings in the front, No LED vertical headlights – a more conventional lighting system appears tucked into the front recesses, different wheels and a different front grille. Also, as the original Stingray Concept featured Lambo-style doors, either this car’s door is slightly ajar or the gaps on these new door panels gaps are just horrendous. Our guess is that someone had finally put together a rebody kit based on the Stingray Concept but took it a step further by chopping the windshield and roof and making into a Speedster version. Last year we came across an eBay auction for a Stingray Concept kit but at the time it was nothing more than vaporware. But, because this car was seen in Beverly Hills and with Transformers 3 in production for a 2011 release, maybe Sideswipe decided to transform into something more appropriate for the California sunshine.

American Heroes 1970 Chevelle SS Up for Auction - Muscle Cars BlogBorn from a collaboration between Super Chevy Magazine, Route 66 Motorsports and the Armed Forces Foundation (AFF), the third Project American Heroes car is about to be sold at an auction that will benefit
American veterans.

The car in question is, in fact, based on a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle, which will go under the hammer on June 26 at a Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction.

The Project American Heroes Chevelle is powered by a GM Performance 550 hp supercharged LSA engine and TCI 6-speed automatic transmission and is equipped with custom Boze billet aluminum wheels and high performance suspension system from Detroit Speed Engineering.

However, the vehicle also includes a selection of components that have been donated by National Parts Depot, Edelbrock, Fesler Billet, Baer Brakes, Sony, Strange Engineering, Legendary Auto Interiors, Specialty Power Windows, Thermo Tec, PPG Paints, K&N Engineering, Painless Performance, AutoRad Radiators, Inland Empire Driveline, Soffseal, and Old Air Products.

“I can’t think of a more fantastic way to raise awareness of our mission and highlight the talents of everyone involved in this project,” Patricia Driscoll, President of the Armed Forces Foundation, said in a release. “The dedication of all our partners really shines through in the finished product, and we are confident that this year’s auction will be just as successful as the last.”

As said, this is the third year that a Project American Heroes is used to raise funds for the Armed Forces Foundation. According to the AFF, the first car, which was a 1957 Chevy, raised $130,000. The second one managed to achieve more than twice that amount, raising no less than $500,000.
