70th Anniversary Edition Corvette Announced

January 25th, 2022 Chris Phillip

We've heard about 75th Anniversary Editions, but 70th Anniversary? Chevrolet and Team Corvette think it's worth mentioning. To remind you, the Corvette first appeared in 1953, and 69 production years later, we get the 70th Anniversary. (Bonus points to you if you pointed out that no Corvettes were made in 1983!) So will these 70th Anniversary Vettes all be in white like the originals? Not quite. F...

Then, before it could even take off, Cadillac discontinued the color so...

The Unflippable F-150 Lightning

The Unflippable F-150 Lightning

January 9th, 2022 Chris Phillip

So to prevent folks from quickly selling their new F-150 Lightning truck for a profit, there's some fine print in the contract. You have to keep it for a year. Seriously. Every new buyer of an F-150 Lightning must sign a legally binding contract with Ford that they won't resell it for a full 12 months. The le...
