CAR OF THE WEEK
1963 Chevrolet Stingray owned by John Benadict.
Check out the ride of the week! A classic 1963 Stingray, also known as a C2 Corvette, is the second generation of this Chevrolet sports car. This version featured a new chassis and all-independent suspension that revolutionized the Corvette’s cornering power and traction. The C2 Corvette was produced from 1963-1967, during which it helped set Corvette’s legacy and align the brand with other top sports cars of the 1960s. John’s Stingray is a gorgeous example of a historic era in Corvette design. Powering this classic is an upgraded version of the base model’s 327 cubic inch engine that produces 300 hp. Not bad for a car produced over 50 years ago! Make sure you drop John a like on MotorCrush for sharing his ride.
MOD OF THE WEEK
New radio, amps and subs on a 2007 Porsche Cayman S owned by Aaron Ischcomer.
This mod may not seem very exiting at first glance, but if you pay Aaron’s car gallery a visit you will be thoroughly impressed with his stereo customizations. His upgrades include four amplifiers mounted in a custom enclosure made from plexiglass and wood. Etched into the plexiglass, you will find a large Porsche logo illuminated by a red LED strip. His subwoofer enclosure is constructed from wood and has channels within to increase the speaker’s sound quality. The box is painted black with a graphic of the car’s silhouette with “Cayman S” written below in white and red letters. To finish off the stereo upgrades, the stock radio was replaced with a Pioneer touch screen head unit. Aaron did a great job on his customizations and documenting the process along the way. Visit Aaron’s profile to see shots of this mod and more of his gorgeous Cayman S.
CAR BIO OF THE WEEK
“First car I’ve bought. Owned for two years and still going strong! Bought it the old fashion way, contemplating on doing a build or keeping it stock.”
– Keegan Rockwell on his 2008 Volkswagen GTI.
We’re glad she is still going strong, Keegan! You chose a great car. The GTI is an energetic hot-hatch that puts out 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque and weighs-in around 3,200 lbs. Its dual-clutch gearbox allows for lightning-quick gear changes that help propel it from 0-60 in 6.1 seconds. It also comes in a six-speed manual for those who prefer to row the gears themselves. While the manual may make you feel faster, its caveat is a slower 0-60 time of 7.2 seconds. The GTI is not only fun to drive, but it is also very reliable and scores high on various consumer review sites. You can thank its German Build quality for that. If you’re thinking of buying a GTI, you may want to pay Keegan’s profile a visit and ask about his ownership experience. Don’t forget to leave him a like when you’re there!
DRIVER BIO OF THE WEEK

As always, if you visit Nick’s profile make sure to drop him a like and follow.
PIC OF THE WEEK
