    It's time once again for the Corvette Chevy Expo! BCMC took home numerous awards last year, and we'd like to see how many cars we can get out.

    For those of you that haven't been to this show, you're in for a treat. This is a very large car show for all things Chevy. Please note that this year they've changed locations, and will now be at Reliant Center.


    IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

    Entry is $50. The form lists $75, but they're honoring the early pricing for our club.

    Move in will be from 10:30am - 7pm on Friday, February 14th.

    In order to be placed with the club you have to put Bayou City Muscle Cars in the space asking for Name of Car Club.

    Please fill out the entry form (with payment information), and fax it back to (386) 267-3150. You can also email your form to info@corvettechevyexpo.com, and then call your payment into (386) 775-2512.

    PLEASE GET THIS DONE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE OR THE PRICING WILL GO UP. We're shooting to have all entries in by Friday, January 17th.


    We want to see everything old and new, and you know everyone's going to be looking for those C7s!

    Yes, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette is the Automobile of the Year. No, this was not a foregone conclusion. The Corvette may have a special place in the American automotive pantheon, but not every new Corvette has been a big deal. The C6, for example, was a conservative effort, a safe play that didn't reach. The new C7, though, is something else. This is a thorough redesign, and it starts with a new frame. Switching from steel to aluminum (previously only Z06 and ZR1 models used an aluminum frame), the C7's frame structure is nearly 100 pounds lighter than the C6's and considerably stiffer. The front and rear cradles -- both aluminum -- are also lighter and stiffer. The lift-off top remains, but it's carbon fiber (as is the hood). The V-8's 6.2-liter displacement is the same as before, but this is an all-new engine, backed by a new seven-speed manual transmission. There's newfound sophistication in the chassis and an interior that makes no excuses to anyone.

    The car's performance is simply awesome. In today's era of horsepower inflation, the big V-8's 455 hp, or 460 hp with the performance exhaust, may not be numbers made for bar boasts -- we'll have to wait for the Z06 for that -- but you get the impression that reaching some marketing-driven power figure was not the point. The point was to smoke tires, roar out of turns, and storm down the straights -- oh, and do all that without quaffing unleaded. As it turns out, this new 6.2-liter proves to be highly effective at all those things.

    With 460 lb-ft of torque (again, add 5 with the performance exhaust), the ability to fry the Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber is always there, just a push of the traction control button away. When you're more interested in go than in show, the Corvette gets down and boogies. We clocked an 11.9-second quarter mile at 118 mph; 60 mph ticks by in less than four seconds. Launch control is available should you want to clock yourself, and there's a function that will record your time so you can amaze your friends. Full-throttle blasts are accompanied by a race-car-worthy soundtrack trumpeting from the quad exhaust pipes, but under mellower circumstances the engine emits a muted yet purposeful rumble.

    Even in a Corvette, you're not always stomping on the gas, and this powertrain is just as rewarding in less aggressive driving. The new, seven-speed manual features creamy clutch action and a slick shifter. Without turbochargers to manage, the V-8's throttle response is precisely predictable, and the long-travel accelerator pedal lets you easily mete out the exact amount of power. Despite the normally aspirated engine's large displacement and potent output, a tall top gear and the ability to run on four cylinders (in Eco mode) help this muscular beast post EPA numbers that you won't be ashamed to mention in polite company: 17/29 mpg city/highway for the manual, 16/28 mpg for the automatic.

    Club member BLKSW4N recently picked up his brand new Corvette Stingray. Hopefully we'll all get a chance to see it at this Sunday's meeting.


    Hey Guys,

    Just got the car a couple of weeks ago. Not sure how much I'm going to do to it just yet, but I'm sure as aftermarket parts become available, the temptation will be there to make it fast and loud

    Here are a couple of pics so far:
