1963 was a watershed year for the Corvette. Production hit 21,513 – split quite evenly between the new “roadster” and stunning coupe design from Larry Shinoda under the direction of Bill Mitchell, with the now infamous (and valuable) split rear window design. Subsequent model year Vettes added the new knock off wheels (1964), the 396 “big block” V8 (1965), and then in 1966, the 427, 430 HP L-88 model, ultimately one of the most collectible Corvettes ever.

To balance performance and efficiency, the Z06 leverages the same trio of advanced technologies introduced on the Corvette Stingray – direct injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing – and leverages them with a new, more efficient supercharger. Combined with the fuel-efficient transmissions, aerodynamic design and lightweight construction, they help make the new Z06 surprisingly frugal.
A unique category among passenger vehicles is a lesser known one called muscle cars. Not a big hit in India, this began as a fad in the United States of America and went on to become a rage there. It refers to cars that are quite expansive and are very high on performance. Besides, the classic muscle car is one with only two doors.
Muscle vehicles and cars in India are an utter rarity. Given the customer behavior in the country, cars that are too large without having enough space within and higher on performance rather than value do not quite sell here. Nevertheless, there have been a handful of models that fall into this category. Also Checkout SUV Cars in India

Well, it depends. Some manufacturers include it in their maintenance schedules and others don’t.
Mercedes-Benz, for example, says brake fluid should be replaced every two years or 20,000 miles, and Porsche Towson says that should be done on most Porsche models every two years regardless of mileage. On the other hand, most Chevrolets can go 150,000 miles or 10 years, according to Chevy’s maintenance schedule, and many Ford, Chrysler and Toyota vehicles don’t even list brake fluid as a regular maintenance item.
The 2015 Camaro Z/28 is the most track-capable model in its history, building on the legacy of the original SCCA Trans Am-series contender introduced in 1967. While the new Camaro Z/28 is not intended to compete in a specific race series, it is solely focused on track capability. In fact, its unique exterior is designed like a race car to produce downforce that presses the car against the track for greater grip – up to 1.08 g in cornering acceleration – and faster lap times.
Corvette Stingray’s provocative exterior styling is as functional as it is elegant. It makes a bold design statement that embraces the advanced technology of the car, while enhancing its overall performance in everything from the wind tunnel to the track.
Lighting is a signature element of the Corvette Stingray’s design and reinforces its high-tech aesthetic. At the front, indirect white LED lamps form a distinctive daytime styling cue. They are set in black-chrome lamp housings with standard HID projector headlamps. The turn signals feature edge-lit amber LED lighting.
Few production cars can match the ZL1’s performance, and all of its high-velocity achievements were conducted with a stock test vehicle wearing all the street-legal, factory-issued components – and no time-consuming equipment adjustments at the racetrack.
More than just power and raw numbers, the ZL1 features technologically advanced and highly developed chassis and suspension systems. They help it deliver balanced, track-ready handling and braking power to complement high engine output, and include third-generation Magnetic Ride Control.
With a potent, 641-horsepower, a new LSX-based 454-cubic-inch small-block V-8 and the classic looks of the 1969 Camaro, legendary baseball player and ardent car collector Reggie Jackson has a muscle car as strong as his World Series batting record. Jackson partnered with GM Performance Parts (GMPP) and the GM Performance Division (GMPD) to build a one-of-a-kind modern muscle machine that serves as a developmental showcase for GM’s new LSX family of performance engine components.
The body on this stunning Camaro retains all of its original California sheet metal. It is arrow straight and has a stunning 2-stage super silver paint job with GM Royal Blue/Purple Illusion center stripe on the cowl hood, nose stripe down to mid door and rear body panel. These panels flip flop back and forth from blue to purple as you can see in the photos. The finish on this paint is without a doubt show worthy. The underneath of this body is painted in the same super silver color and the finish is just as nice as the exterior of the car.
