Drunk Concert Goer Gets Her Head Stuck in the Most Unbelievable Place
A young woman in Minnesota got her head stuck inside an exhaust tip, forcing the local fire department to cut the tailpipe off just to get her out of the strange predicament. The ordeal — if you can even call it that — took place at the Winstock Country Music Festival
Details are still unclear on how the girl’s head ended up inside the exhaust of a first-generation Chevrolet Silverado or why the girl was even in the vicinity of the truck, to begin with. According to reports, the young lady was reportedly intoxicated when the incident occurred, putting a lot of questions about the whole thing into perspective. Fortunately for her, the Winsted Fire Department was called in to help extract her head out of the exhaust pipe. A power saw was reportedly used in cutting the tailpipe, which led to the girl getting her head out of the exhaust pipe.
The McLeod County Sherriff’s Department also confirmed that the young lady was cited for underage drinking and was escorted out of the concert grounds once her head was removed from the exhaust pipe. To make this story even more unbelievable than it already is, the fire chief spoke to local media outlets and said that he had heard that it was the second time the young woman put her head in the tailpipe during the event. Apparently, she was able to get out the first time, which probably led to her thinking that she could do it again.
We had no plans to reveal the identity of the girl, but it wouldn’t have mattered anyway. She did it herself when she posted on Facebook, admitting that she was “the tailpipe girl.”
Make good choices, young lady. Make good choices.
2019 Chevrolet Blazer
Much has been said about the return of the Chevrolet Blazer, and a handful of new spy shots have all but confirmed the comeback of a nameplate that Chevy hasn’t used since 2005. Over the past few months, test mules of the full-sized SUV have been spotted going around sporting heavy camouflage to hide its production design. The latest set of photos sheds a bit of skin, giving us somewhat of a clearer picture of what to expect when it’s finally ready to show its face to the world.
GM Executive, Mark Reuss, Should Probably Stop Driving Pace Cars on Indy Car Races
General Motors’ Executive Vice President of Global Product Development, Purchasing, and Supply Chain, Mark Reuss, crashed a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 on the parade lap of the second IndyCar race at the Detroit Grand Prix. The surreal incident led to a 27-minute delay and prompted the Internet to come down hard on Reuss. Fortunately, neither Reuss nor his passenger, IndyCar official Mark Sand, were hurt after the crash.

Chevy is Offering the Most Diverse Silverado Lineup Ever for 2019, Including a 310-Horsepower Four-Cylinder Engine!
The automotive market has changed so much over the last 15 years, and its constant evolution is taking us to places we never expected and showing us things we never thought we’d see. After Ford and Chevy integrated modern four-cylinder engines into the Mustang and Camaro, it was only a matter of time before the led to even stranger things, and in this case, that’s a four-cylinder Silverado. Chevy has announced that the 2019 Chevy Silverado will be offered with a 2.7-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder. In fact, it’s not only offering it but listing it as standard equipment on the entry-level LT and the RST. Both come exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Bart Starr’s 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Is Up for Auction
You gotta love a classic ‘Vette - the looks, the sound, the smell… it’s pure nostalgia stuff. This particular Corvette Sting Ray Convertible takes it even further, bringing some very American provenance to the table as the vehicle originally given to Bart Starr for winning the MVP award at Super Bowl I.

When Chevy introduced the C7 Corvette, we’re pretty sure that the Earth stood still for a moment. The car managed to maintain the classic Corvette philosophy but came to the market with an all-new design, new powertrain, and a brand-new interior. It was a complete makeover, yet it was still very distinguishable as a Corvette. This is evolution done right, folks. When introduced in 2014, it delivered 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque from a naturally aspirated, direct-injected, 6.2-liter V-8. It was also available with a performance exhaust system at launch that raised those figures to 460 and 465, respectively. Zero-to-60 mph? That sprint comes in less than four seconds. Needless, to say, the Corvette is the epitome of sports cars and muscle cars alike, and that’s why we’ve decided to honor it as the Wallpaper of the day. We’ve hand-picked our favorite, but we’ve included a rather sizeable gallery that you’re more than welcome to pick and choose from. Go ahead, now, get to downloading already.
These days, there’s so much emphasis on Nurburgring lap times that it seems we hear about a new record, or a new attempt, at least once a week. There’s no doubt the Chevy was doing its best to make a best lap at the famous track after it was spotted there not that long ago. But, Chevy has more than a lap record in mind when it comes to the most powerful production Vette yet. Chevy drug the ZR1 all the way to Germany to put it through the paces at ATP Automotive Testing Papenburg, one of the largest proving grounds in the world and one that has miles upon miles of straight track looped together with banked curves at the end – the perfect recipe for top speed runs.
To make a qualifying run, a vehicle has to make two passes on the track, one in each direction (against and with the wind, naturally.) Once both runs are complete, the times are averaged out to establish a “true top speed.” As it turns out, that ZR1 is everything we hoped it would be, hitting 214.88 mph on one run and 210.20 on another. The true top speed? 212.20 mph. Not too bad at all, right? Well, check out the video of this awesome run below and let us know what you think!
2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 to pace 102nd Indianapolis 500
For the 15th time since 1978, the Chevrolet Corvette will serve as the pace car for one of the world’s most prestigious races, the Indy 500. In keeping with the occasion, we’re not going to be seeing just an ordinary Corvette in Indy; we’re seeing a 755-horsepower Corvette ZR1 with all the cosmetic bells and whistles of a fully functioning pace car.
The Chevy Bolt Is Here for the Long Haul; Won’t See a Refresh Until 2025
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is a five-door all-electric hatch bubble released just a few years ago for the 2017 model year. Now, rumor has it GM has a new-gen in the works, but apparently, it won’t see the light of day for at least another seven years.

One of two Chevrolet Colorado concepts that were presented at the 2017 SEMA Auto Show is reportedly headed to production. That’s the word coming out of Off-road.com, which alluded to the Colorado ZR2 AEV as the concept that could be turned into a full-blown production model. Specific details have yet to be revealed, but if it’s true, the production version of the Colorado ZR2 AEV will probably carry the “ZR2 Bison” name.

2019 Chevrolet Camaro
Chevy’s resident muscle car and Mustang fighter went under the scalpel for the 2019 model to bring it up to speed in the looks and technology department. As part of this mid-cycle update, Chevy also added in the 1LE package for the Camaro Turbo to make it more track ready while updating various components of other trim levels to help keep them fresh while still standing out in the crowd. There are no power updates as part of this update, but with the new tech and new looks, the Camaro should be able to hold its own against the Mustang and the Challenger for a few more years.
Visual Comparison: 2018 Chevy Camaro vs 2019 Chevy Camaro
The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro has just been released, and it looks different from its successor. We can debate if it looks better or not, but it does offer a more distinctive appearance than the outgoing model. The front and rear sections are where the most prominent changes can be found, and if you’re a fan of the Transformers movie franchise, you’ll realize that the 2019 Camaro actually owes its appearance to the special edition Camaro Bumblebee that was featured in the fifth installment of the franchise, The Last Knight.
Chevy Responds to the 2018 Ford Mustang by Updating the Camaro in All the Right Ways
With Ford updating the Mustang for the 2018 model year, it should come as no surprise that Chevy had to do the same for its resident muscle car. For 2019, the Camaro gets a revised front end with a new grille and sexier headlights. The rear end of all models get a revised fascia and new taillights as well. More important than this, however, is the new Turbo 1LE which effectively adds the track-ready goodies from other 1LE models to the four-banger Camaro. There’s lots of good stuff here so keep reading to learn more.

It’s Not Exactly Confirmed, But Chevy Has Teased the "Supercar," C8, Mid-Engined Corvette to Dealers!
Rumors about Chevy planning to build a mid-engined Corvette have been flying around for quite a few years now, but GM’s supercar is no longer just a wet dream. Several prototypes have been spotted on public roads recently, and we’ve read a ton of reports about its design and drivetrain. Things have been rather quiet recently until Cadillac’s new V-8 engine in the CT6 V-Sport gave rise to speculation that the mid-engined Corvette might get it. Now that GM rejected that scenario, we got word that Chevy just showcased the supercar to its dealers in Las Vegas.
There is So Much Confusion Surrounding Gender, Even this Camaro Thought it was a Mustang
Remember the half a dozen Ford Mustangs that crashed into each other after leaving a car meet in Dubai a few weeks ago? That incident gave us a year’s worth of equity in referring to it every time a crash of that sort happens again. Well, it didn’t take long for the ’Stang’s nemesis, the Chevrolet Camaro, to pull a Mustang when it got involved in a crash of its own after leaving an auto show in the U.K.
