Every once in a while, I'll be driving home to DeWitt, on 127 or 69, and I'll see a convoy of camouflaged cars or trucks - vehicles being road tested by the manufacturers. I've even seen them on the (asphalt) back roads in Clinton County. It seems there's usually two or three cars being tested, followed by some sort of big SUV. Pretty cool to see some of these cars before they ever hit the showrooms.

The latest vehicle to be on the lookout for is the new prototype Corvette. According to a report from FoxNews.com, they've been road testing the different option packages (including one with a big wing on the back) here in Michigan and in Ohio. The rumor is that this 'Vette may have a 700 HP engine.

Here's the story, with some video.
