Ron Fellows Inducted Into Corvette Hall of Fame, Given Custom Vette to Celebrate [video]

Former Corvette Racing driver and motorsports icon Ron Fellows recently had the pleasure of being inducted into Corvette’s Hall of Fame. And as if that wasn’t a big enough honor for Fellows, he was also presented with this wicked 2012 Corvette Z06 at the National Corvette Museum’s 17th Annual Labor Day celebration. This particular Chevy Corvette has been dubbed the SEMA/Spring Mountain Special Edition and chances are we’ll be seeing it in action at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School right outside Las Vegas at Spring Mountain Raceway – not to mention at the upcoming SEMA Show in November.

The special edition 2012 Z06 features a carbon fiber hood and full-body racing stripes. On all four corners are black wheels with a red stripe, borrowed from the Centennial Edition, while the interior features embroidered seats with “100 Years” on them. Displayed prominently on the side of the car is Ron Fellows’ #3 racing number which is complemented by graphics stating “Hall of Fame”. In the rear, the Vette has graphics from Mosport Raceway, which Ron co-owns, plus logos from his own driving school.

Rental Corvette Does Donuts on the Beach, Ends Up In Water [video]

Yeah, so… what happened? How in the world does a convertible Corvette end up in the water? Better yet, how does a Hertz rental convertible Corvette end up in the water? And of course, everything’s all captured on video and shared with the world via YouTube.

The story according to NBC San Diego is that a visiting couple had rented the Corvette and hit up Pacific Beach in San Diego for a night filled with festivities. Apparently one too many festivities. They met up with an unsuspecting individual at the bar and after he disclosed that he had never driven a Corvette before, the couple felt obliged to offer him the keys to their rental.

And the result? Well, apparently the driver took more than just a joyride by taking the Corvette out onto the beach, doing a couple of donuts and pointing the nose straight into the water. Unfortunately no video footage of the actual event unfolding has surfaced, but the aftermath is pretty entertaining.

Just another reason to never buy a rental car. Tsk tsk. By the way, the driver wasn’t harmed; he just ran away from the scene. The couple was held and released by the local police.

Check out the hilarious video after the break.
