We've had to endure our fair share of craptacular rental whips during our travels (Faux carbon fiber trim in a minivan? Seriously Dodge?), but making the trek from airport to hotel to auto show and back could be a bit more bearable behind the wheel of a new Corvette. That's exactly what Avis is doing, by adding the 430-hp 6.2-liter V8 convertible 'Vette to its line of "Cool Collection" cars. While the $164.99 daily rental price isn't too hard to swallow, the drop-top Corvette's availability will be limited to the warm climes of Arizona, California, Florida and, appropriately, Las Vegas. If there aren't any more Shelby GT-Hs available through Hertz, we think we might have found our next ride for the LA Auto Show or SEMA.

I bougt a part for my 67 vette this week and included in my part (guage) was a flyer about a corvette giveaway at www.winthevettes.com This children's charity is giving away two 427's - tickets are $3.00 but they're really cheap if you buy more. It's a sweepstakes and the money goes to hospitalized kids confined to hospitals. Unbelievable! You can win both cars tax free. one's a 427 red 67' tripower convert. the other's an 08' Lingenfelter. both red convertibles. check it out.
