Cray Wheels For Your Corvette

corvette-cray-wheels

You wouldn’t replace a Holley 850 double pump on a 1968 L88 Corvette with a Rochester 2-barrel, nor should you put just any set of rims on your precious C6. There is a reason GM spends upwards of several years in the design phase before releasing one generation Corvette. This is the same reason why Cray Wheels will not design and manufacture a wheel for anything other than a C4, C5, or C6 Corvette.

You may be envisioning a stuffy warehouse, where only a handful of wheels are churned through a robot per week at $10,000 a piece. However, these high-tolerance rims range from $300 to $650, and are all hand-assembled and available through most high-end wheel shops. Cray believes you should never bite off more than you can chew, and your cruise night competition should be doing most of their chewing with their mouths wide open.

This will put the new Dart in direct competition with the Chevy Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic, and Hyundai Elantra.

Gas Prices Climb to $4/gallon; Yet Muscle Cars Rein Surpreme in May Sales

The May 2011 numbers are in, and the American Muscle car beat out the Japanese hybrid by nearly 2,000 units (that’s 19,476 muscle cars vs. 17,852 hybrids). While this may sound surprising with gas prices soaring to $4/gallon, when you consider the Japanese earthquake, and the lack of hybrids on the showroom floor. It isn’t so much that muscle cars have become more popular, but rather the hybrid has become more of an endangered species.
