The Corvette coupe and convertible have a 6.2-liter, 430-hp V8 engine, known as the LS3, and a standard 6-speed manual transmission, though a 6-speed paddle-shift automatic is an option. The paddle shifter has been revised to include a "push and hold" function to make it easier to transition back to automatic after you've had your fun through the chicanes.The sport-tuned Z06 has the larger LS7 engine, a 7-liter powerplant that makes 505 hp and is connected to a 6-speed manual only. This combination is capable of 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds -- in first gear. The body is lightened by using an aluminum structure with bonded carbon fiber composites. It features a firmer suspension; red, 6-piston brake calipers; and 18-inch front and 19-inch rear aluminum wheels.The ZR1 turns up the heat with the LS9 6.2-liter engine and Tremec 6-speed manual transmission, plus a new Performance Traction Management system for improved on-track performance. With 638 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque, the ZR1's top speed has been tested at over 200 mph, making it the fastest production Corvette ever. It's built on the same chassis as the Z06, but with a specially tuned suspension and Michelin performance tires exclusive to the ZR1.The new Grand Sport coupe and convertible share the LS3 engine with the base model coupe and convertible, and it can be had with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. As a replacement for the previous Z51 performance package, the Grand Sport comes standard with wider wheels and tires, a revised suspension, extra cooling, larger brakes and specific manual gear ratios. All Corvettes come with standard air conditioning, keyless entry, a stereo system with MP3 playback, cruise control, power everything, dual-zone climate control, leather seating and steering-wheel mounted audio controls. Chevrolet provides its flagship sports car with plenty of standard safety features, too, like ABS, driver and passenger air bags, TPMS, traction control, and a limited-slip differential. The Corvette is a purpose-built driving vehicle, and as such, Chevrolet doesn't offer a wide array of optional equipment. Packages include heated seats, a Bose sound system, a navigation system and Bluetooth. A custom leather-wrapped interior package adds 2-tone leather with crossed flags embroidered in the headrests and leather on the console, instrument panel, and door panels. And you can prove you live in the twenty-first century with the available dot-matrix head-up display that shows speed, rpm, oil pressure and g-meter readings.

Fri, 6 Mar 2015 12:30:33 EST Big Garage Car Collector Homes for sale : Mitt Romney Car Elevator Garage Beach House for sale Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is considering selling his ocean front La Jolla home, despite nearing the completion of a controversial rebuild project that has taken years. Romney's attorney confirmed that the former governor of Massachusetts has hired a real estate broker to show the home at 311 Dunemere in La Jolla. The home, which Mitt and Ann Romney bought for $12 million in 2008, is not publicly listed. A project to tear down what was a 3,009 square-foot ranch house overlooking Marine Street Beach and build a two-story, 11,062 square-foot structure is expected to be completed by the end of this year. The home is under construction and has been shown to potential buyers. However, it is the Romney's expectation that it may not be sold until after it is completed. YOU CAN PROVE THAT ASSUMPTION WRONG by being the potential buyer who makes a great offer to buy it before the construction is completed! To make that offer, please contact Rare Realty at 310-498-0537 or for a possibly faster reply, send an email to Expect the selling price to be north of $14,000,000 at the very least. If you can't provide immediate proof (in writing) of your financial ability to pay for this house at $14MM or above, then don't waste our time. You need to have proof of liquid funds available that are provided by a third party such as lawyer, accountant or bank executive. If any loans would be involved, then you must also provide a bank letter of credit along with documentation showing the cash down payment.

Sotheby’s announced Wednesday it has acquired a 25 percent stake in classic car auctioneer RM Auctions, now known as RM Sotheby’s. The auction house will have the opportunity to increase its ownership interest in RM Auctions over time, the company said in a statement. In November 2013 the companies worked together to present the Art of the Automobile auction in New York, which fetched a record-breaking $14.3 million for a 1964 Ferrari 250 LM. The market for luxury cars and motorcycles is booming: according to the Hagerty Collector Car Index, the average value of the most sought-after collectible cars in the marketplace has more than doubled since 2010. Ferraris from the 1950s to 1970s have averaged a 62 percent jump in value over the past year alone, and a threefold increase since 2010. “RM’s ownership of the high end of the market coupled with our global client network positions us for great success at a time when the market for investment-quality motor cars has never been stronger,” said Sotheby’s CEO William Ruprecht. Sotheby’s lending its famous marketing muscle to classic cars has the potential to fuel higher prices. And the partnership is working quickly, so collectors will see the results soon. The first RM Sotheby’s auction will take place March 14 in Amelia Island, Fla., an annual event that last year realized almost $40 million in sales. Additional auctions are set for Fort Worth, Tex. in May and Lake Como, Italy later this year.

The video is below the pictures. Wince as you watch this $200,000 2014 Porsche Turbo 911 S Burn to the ground. That’s a 560-horsepower, seven-speed, all-wheel-drive, 10-second, 190-plus-mph car suffering an inglorious end by self-immolating in a Costco parking lot. It had the courtesy to do it within a few blocks of HOT ROD home base, and our friend Robert “Mefi Bob” Radke ( was on the scene, cell-phone in hand to capture the photos and video. Says Bob, who drives a 600-horsepower LS-powered Porsche, “The car started smoking a few rows downwind of where I parked, I moved my car upwind of it and saw the flame action.” The owner came out a few minutes later. That’ll ruin a day of bargain shopping in bulk. Bob told us the front clip of the megabuck car was in salvageable shape until the fire department showed up, and after dowsing the barbeque, destroyed the sheetmetal prying it apart to ensure there were no hot spots. Because, you know, stuff would get messed up if the car caught fire again. Check out the sheetmetal that’s fully melted away, and the intercoolers plopped straight to the ground. We’re no insurance adjusters, but we’ll call this one a total. Maybe the owner should consider dragging the hulk out to Willow Springs Raceway. “Yeah, man, I was pushing it hard into 9 when it just blew like the Death Star!” Except Costco. Still, not as humiliating as the guy who wadded up his Ford GT directly in front of our office building.

Or in a penthouse where President John Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol and the Rat Pack once played? Or better yet, be the owner of one of the most stunning luxury residences in Manhattan? You can, at Penthouse B, located at The Edgewater Cooperative (530 East 72nd Street). This sprawling, 3,200 sq ft (*appx.) four bedroom, four bathroom, two half-bathroom co-op with two wraparound terraces (totaling approximately 2,000 sq ft) has a storied history. Frank Sinatra was the original owner and helped to design the three story triplex, with floor-to-ceiling windows that capture breath-taking views of the East River from every room. Warhol tagged the penthouse as a "glittering grotto" thanks to its airy and glamorous environment. Sammy Davis, Jr. purportedly threw empty champagne glasses out the window. President Kennedy dropped by as did Marilyn Monroe. Mia Farrow lived there while married to Sinatra and probably twisted the night away with Peter Lawford and Dean Martin, frequent visitors, while filming the iconic movie, "Rosemary’s Baby". The present is just as awesome as its past. The penthouse’s sweeping, unobstructed views take in the East River, Queensboro Bridge, Roosevelt Island and beyond. Multiple chandeliers and 18’ ceilings add to the drama of the home’s design. The entire apartment was recently renovated and includes an exact duplicate of the Apple store’s glass spiral staircase. The penthouse has NuVo whole home audio systems, iPad temperature and lighting controls, and motorized window shades; there are even solar panels. The first floor features a living space with a marble, wood-burning fireplace and beamed ceilings; a dining area that can seat ten; and a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including a six burner stove, dishwasher and wine refrigerator. All of the bedrooms are good sized, with their own en-suite baths. Once the glassed-in, rooftop party room for Sinatra, the master bedroom suite on the third level was completely redone and now offers the homeowner a luxurious space for relaxation. The penthouse has several closets (including custom walk-ins), recessed lighting and luxury fixtures and finishes. As an added bonus, this apartment comes with its own private staff quarters with full bath. Described by StreetEasy as being "located on the very sought after 72nd Street", the Edgewater is a premier white glove building. It offers residents 24/7 doorman and concierge service and a live-in super. Located in an exclusive cul-de-sac, the building is near Carl Schurz Park and Asphalt Green and within walking distance of bus and subway lines, the New York Health & Racquet Club and numerous amenities. Wed, 25 Feb 2015 16:36:35 EST Wants & Requests : Article: California's Route 66: old Los Angeles to the beauty of the desert (all pictures from top to bottom are in order 1 thru 8, plus the map) __________________________________________ Today, Los Angeles is a sprawl of over-congested highways full of commuters traveling across the vast city, but there was a time when Route 66 shuttled road travelers in from their long journey or ushered them out of burgeoning LA toward the deserts out east. As the city built up around the Mother Road, much of it was left, just renamed. This is your California Route 66 map and guide to get your trip started off right: Highlights along the California section of Route 66 (west to east): 1. Santa Monica Pier Whether you call it the starting point or the ending point of the Mother Road, it all comes down to one place: the Santa Monica Pier. It’s the perfect spot to stretch your legs after your journey or to snap a couple pictures of the ocean before embarking on your 2,000+ mile journey east. Sure, it’s touristy, but it should be! It’s the Santa Monica Pier! Take a ride on the old 1922 Carousel, grab something sweet from the soda fountain, and take in all the great people watching. 2. Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain A California institution since 1915, the Fair Oaks Pharmacy was a popular stop on Route 66, and thanks to its restoration in the 1990s, it is again. It functions as a real pharmacy and store, so if you need a prescription filled before heading out on the road, take advantage. The real draw, however, is the soda fountain. At Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Shop you can order old-fashioned phosphate, lime rickey, or egg cream and let a real soda jerk give you a truly authentic experience. The lunch menu also features hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, and salads. 3. Bono's Historic Orange Ok, it’s not the coolest thing you’ll see on your Route 66 journey, but never, ever pass up the chance to take pictures with oversized roadside food items. The orange sits on the grouns of the now-closed Bono’s Restaurant and Deli. When the place operated during Route 66’s heyday it had an orange just like it on the grounds, but they later demolished it to increase capacity. Restaurant owner Joe Bono then found this orange in the 1990s and had it moved to the site. Not much to do here other than take a picture, but you can never have enough pictures next to gigantic fruit. 4. Wigwam Village #7 If you don’t stay the night here we don’t really understand the point of your Route 66 trip. One of only a few Wigwam Villages left, the Wigwam Motel in San Bernardino, CA is an absolute icon of Route 66 Americana. In addition to its kitschy design and decor, the current owners are friendly, and the guests seem to all have a similar enthusiasm about the place and often hang out and get to know one another. 5. Mitla Cafe For over 75 years this charming little Mexican cafe has been serving the best Mexican food in all of California. It was one of the very first Mexican restaurants in the entire country, and the legend says this place actually inspired the founders of Taco Bell to create the chain taco-joint. If you want a classic Mexican place that’s been doing it right forever, you can’t go wrong with Mitla Cafe. 6. Emma Jean's Holland Burger Cafe If you’re looking for a classic California Route 66 greasy spoon, here you go. While LA is known for its fad foods and diets, outside the city Emma Jean’s is known for its delicious, hearty breakfasts and lunches. The most popular item on the menu is the Brian Burger, but it’s all good. FYI, it is cash only! (You may also recognize it from the movie, Kill Bill Vol. 2!) 7. Bottle Tree Ranch One man, Elmer Long, started collecting bottles as a kid, and before he knew it he had created the Bottle Tree Ranch, a place with over 200 “trees” covered in bottles. The eclectic collection has continued to expand, now with random gas pumps, cars, bicycles, bird feeders, and road signs. Elmer himself still hangs out quite a bit, so be sure to say hello and let him tell you a story or two on your California Route 66 adventure! 8. Route 66 'Mother Road' Museum Occupying an old Harvey House called Casa del Desierto, the Route 66 ‘Mother Road’ Museum displays a vast collection of photographs and artifacts related to both Route 66 and the surrounding Mojave Desert Communities. Admission and parking are free. Ample parking space for RVs, buses & big rigs. While the museum is free, they do accept donations, so don’t be a jerk… Throw some money in the bin! This list is obviously not definitive, but now you've got your map of California Route 66 to get you started! Go and explore California's Route 66 and let us know what you find!
