They’re on the Case
The National Corvette Museum, in partnership with manufacturer Mimeocase, has created a limited- edition iPhone case celebrating Corvette culture. Each T-6 sheet-aluminum case is precision cut on a CNC machine, while the back half is engraved with a silhouette of the NCM’s Skydome and a C6 Corvette. According to the company, the case can provide protection from accidental drops from as high as 15 feet. A 5⁄32-inch Allen wrench is included for easy installation. (Note: Please contact the NCM first for availability. If the case you request is out of stock, contact Mimeocase directly.)

Go with the Flow
HRE’s new FlowForm wheels are engineered and tested to the exacting standards of the company’s forged wheels, at a price that won’t bruise your budget. Debut model FF01, shown here, is inspired by the timeless design of HRE’s popular P40SC wheel. Instead of forging, however, the FF01 is created using a high-tech, low-pressure, cast flow-forming process. Currently 19x9- and 20x10.5-inch fitments are available for C5 and C6 Corvettes, in gloss silver or satin black. Custom finishes are available upon request.

Coiled to Strike
MTI Racing’s Bilstein Coilovers for C5 and C6 Corvettes promise excellent grip at the racetrack, while maintaining a comfortable and reassuring ride on the street. Their secret is an inverted mounting scheme, which places the majority of the shocks’ mass on the chassis, rather than the lower control arms. The result is a 50-percent decrease in unsprung weight (when compared with the stock setup), and a crisper, more responsive feel. Features include billet-aluminum construction, a premium anodized finish, custom Aurora spherical bearings, and easy ride-height adjustments. Custom shock valving and spring rates are available.

VETTE columnist K. Scott Teeters has expanded his Corvette Postage Stamp Art Print Collection to include race cars. The first in the series features the racing Corvettes of Dave MacDonald: his 1963 Grand Sport coupe and roadster, the Briggs Cunningham 1960 Le Mans-winning No. 1 car, and the Delorenzo and Thompson/Owens Corning 1968 427 L88. In the future, look for Teeters' postage-stamp prints featuring Greenwood cars, Corvette Challenge racers, the Morrison Motorsports record-breaking ZR-1, the C5-R, the C6.R, and, eventually the C7.R. Each of the 500 numbered prints measures 11x17 inches and is signed by the artist.
