13th Annual Sand Hills Open

The 13th Annual Sand Hills Open Road Challenge Winter Party is set to happen on Saturday, February 11th in Lincoln, NE.  This annual event helps raise money to support the volunteer Fire and Rescue Departments that help make the Sand Hills Open Road Challenge and Loup To Loup races in Nebraska safe each year.  Some of the purchases from the money raised include; a Jaws Of Life Emergency Extractor, a John Deere Gator UTV with a water tank for quick fire responses, and a Ford Expedition Command Vehicle.  In addition, several cash donations where given to area Fire and Rescue departments.  This is huge, as many of these rural departments have an annual budget of only $1000. This event is a way to say “Thank You” to the many volunteers who ensure the safety of each driver during the racing events in August.

2018 Corvette ZR1

There seems to be many rumors flying around future Corvette products and those rumors seem to be pointing at a future mid – engine Corvette.  I am always asked, “When do you think the mid – engine Corvette will arrive in your showroom?”  My answer is that the current Corvette is already mid – engine.  It is a front mid – engine car, since the engine is positioned behind the center line of the front axle.  Corvettes have been front mid – engined since the introduction of the C5 Corvette.  It’s also interesting to know that the new Stingray, is the 1st Corvette to have a slightly rearward weight bias.  With the recent addition of the Grand Sport, there seems to be a car for almost everyone.  Buyers now have the choice of Stingray, Stingray Z51, Grand Sport and Z06 models –  with choices of Coupe and Convertible versions of each model.  Plus, there are performance packages available for the Grand Sport and Z06 models as well.  With the introduction of each new generation Corvette, brings another step up in performance.  You could say that the Stingray Z51 matches the performance of the prior generation C6 Z06.  The new 650HP Z06 certainly eclipses almost all the performance potential of the prior generation C6 ZR1.  So where do we go from here?  Most recently, there have been photos of Chevrolet testing another front engined Corvette.  These cars have been highly camouflaged but appear to be Z06 based.  The difference is that these cars are sporting massive rear wings and seem to have much larger front grille openings.

It Is A Law!

Congratulations to everyone in SD involved in the car hobby. It’s now legal to drive certain vehicles without a front license plate.
HB 1164 to allow a single license plate for special interest vehicles was signed into law by Governor Dennis Daugaard on March 7. Thank you to everyone who helped with this effort. It was a team effort of car enthusiasts who own and drive street rods, customized cars, collector cars, sports cars, or muscle cars. Weather your contribution was large or small, financial, time, contacting legislators, sending e-mails or testifying in Pierre, it helped improve the car hobby for many. A large majority of legislators heard your voice, own cars like ours and supported our bill. After two committee hearings and votes on both floors there was only one “no” vote. With this type of support I do believe future improvements can be made for all special interest plates. We do plan to keep the United Car Council of SD active.
