How to get into a Corvette, 1980’s style

Their are two ways of entering a Corvette (or really any convertible for that matter): by opening the door or by jumping in. I prefer jumping into the car for a quick getaway. The video above gives a demonstration on how to do both.

When jumping into a car for the first time, remember to wear soft sole shoes so you don’t accidentally scratch the car.

General Motors loaned me a 2012 Corvette Grand Sport for the week, so you will see the full review coming soon!

Infiniti G37S Convertible Review

I love convertibles with the top down, but I hate them with the top up… The Infiniti G37 Sport Convertible solved this by using a retractable hard top. The convertible top folds into the trunk with the push of a button.

Under the hood sits a 325 HP 6 cylinder engine which delivers the power of yesterday’s V8 engines. I demoed the 7-speed automatic version, but it also has the option for a 6-speed manual transmission. The car handles well for it’s class and delivered a smooth ride, even at 100+ mph.

The features and flexibility of the G37 Sport make it a great everyday car. The hardtop convertible for starters is quite with the top up. Inside the car I found wood trim, soft leather seats, and a great sound system. The amenities of the car was on par with Audi or BMW. For long trips though, I would prefer something bigger, such as the Mercedes SL 550… But that gets a lot more expensive.

Overall I was really impressed with the car. You won’t win any races in the G37 Sport, but you will have a good time in it. If you want an affordable luxury sports car, this one is for you…
