    2013 Chevy Corvette review: Speed, grace, and rolling nostalgia

    I pushed the starter button and the car shook as a roar emerged from underneath the chassis and burst in a series of rapid fire explosions out the rear, as if a string of heavy duty firecrackers were celebrating behind me.

    And that was when the Corvette was sitting still.

    Clearly this was a sports car better suited to the driving bass-line of Eminem’s Lose Yourself than any dulcet jazz solos from Keiko Matsui or ‘Trane. I unlatched the roof and put it on the designated tracks in the long, shallow trunk. Then slid a USB drive into the designated slot under the armrest and lined up a few hundred favorites to blare from the nine Bose speakers. I drove slowly to the entrance of an isolated stretch of Connecticut interstate highway, where it stretches for about two miles through the marsh grass flanking the Long Island Sound, and waited till the roadway was empty.

    Good opening line.....overall good review. Sounds like a car guy who enjoys driving and sometimes driving fast. I may have missed it but I don't think he slammed the interior or the seats in any way......that gets a from me. Makes me want to go out and listen to the thunder of my own GS....gotta go......

    Well...I had to do more than just go out and listen to it.

    Took the Blu Bullet II out on route 101 and floored it through the first three gears. Love that engine at 7000 rpm, just before the rev limiter.
