Car Of The Day: June 27, 2011
Today's car of the day comes from jedimario's collection and is 1 Badd Ride's 2005 Chevrolet Corvette.
The Chevrolet Corvette (C6) is a sports car produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors introduced for the 2005 model year. The current generation Corvette is the first with exposed headlamps since the 1962 model. Variants include the ZR1, the most powerful production Corvette to date, and the C6.R, an American Le Mans Series GT1 championship winner. According to Motor Trend magazine, the current sixth generation Corvette will not be superseded at least until the 2012 calendar year.

Ah, 1 Badd Ride. Was there a more wayward brand in the last decade? Well, yes, but these guys are up there. A shame, too, because these cars are actually pretty nice. Their Corvette is a base C6 with some...questionable...modifications, but overall I think the package works. The fog lights on the front go a little far though. This was 1 Badd Ride's niche. Mid to high level American sports and muscle cars that were modified just enough to turn purists away but not enough attract those who love tacky things. Unfortunately, this niche's market is and was quite, quite small, and the brand has disappeared from store shelves.
I don't remember the muffler looking like that. I may have lost a piece off the back at some point or it could just be scuffed. One thing I absolutely love about this car is the wheels; I think they are fantastic. So my wild card sixth picture is dedicated to them!
