2014-corvette-stingray

The North American Car Of The Year for 2014 is the brilliant new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

So, if you were waiting for your Corvette purchase to be approved by a mostly faceless group of industry insiders (to be fair, I count about ten “shoes” in the group as well) then you can go ahead and place that deposit.

    It’s funny, I was thinking the same thing when I saw the headline this morning. Let’s see, GM has a new flagship truck and car this year, so they get the award. Anyone want to take the other side of the bet that Ford’s F-150 wins “Truck of the Year” next year?

    The only “award” worth noting is the one I bestow with a check when I buy a new car. There will be a press release and a party. byob.

    I agree the award is meaningless. That being said, I’d still go apeshit if my wife surprised me with one of these :-).

    It reminds me of Woody Allen’s quip about Hollywood in the movie “Annie Hall”. Paraphrasing here: “All they do in Hollywood is give each out awards — and the winner of Best Fascist Dictator is: Adolf Hitler!”

    I still remember the 1983 Car of the Year, the Renault Alliance…

    It seems tastefully restrained after looking at those Z06 images. It’s growing on me. I still haven’t seen one in person. No chance of that for another four months or so.

    All Car Of The Year awards are meaningless. Memories of the Citation, Alliance and Prius come to mind.
