Corvette Stingray Concept Cars: Rogers Auto Group

History of the Corvette Stingray

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and Rogers Auto Group
 

The Corvette Stingray was a privately funded concept car that formed a basis for the second (C2) generation Corvette Sting Ray. The Stingray racer-concept car was designed by Bill Mitchell, GM Vice President of styling, and Larry Shinoda in 1957. The basis of the Stingray was the 1957 Corvette SS, an engineering test mule chassis for the creation of an official Chevrolet race effort culminating with the 24 Hours of LeMans. Soon after its race debut, the Automobile Manufacturers Association (AMA) banned manufacturer-sponsored racing, and the SS had been relegated to test track duty. The Stingray exists today with a 327 cubic inch (5.4 L), fuel-injected V-8 of 375 hp (280 kW)

    When getting your loan approved, the lending institutions use a computer scoring system and it is also based on the type or length of employment, length of residence, whether you rent or own, if you have s checking and / or savings accounts. The lenders scoring system will also give plus points for complete phone numbers and addresses for family members and friends you have listed as references. Have all of your materials and information (Pay Stub) before you even step foot in the car dealership. The proper Job description is very important – so make sure to describe your position as professional as possible. For example, “Administrative Assistant” might have a more impressive effect than “Secretary”.

  • If you have some equity on your home or on a piece of real estate, you might want to contact a mortgage lender about financing your car loan.
