HOLLYWOOD USA - June 3, 2014: This week's episode was super fun for Fireball because it was shot in Carlsbad (San Diego County) with his good friend MIKE KAHN of Popular Technology Radio! They had a blast in a smokin' hot 2014 Velocity Yellow Stingray Corvette.

Mike is known as "Mr. Tehnology," so listen up and get the goods on where cool-tech is headin' in the future.

Seriously. Last time I checked, Corvettes were ground based tactical fighters. Obliterating everything in their path with no mercy for the Fords and Dodge’s of the world. When did they become interplanetary seekers of cool?

When the folks of Chevy said, “Hey Fireball, how about we send you a Velocity yellow 2014 Corvette with 460-horsepower?” I was like... Um, well, Corvettes are cool and they are a blast to drive so... I said, “Bring it on!” And this is where they pulled a fast one. You know how Jimmy Bond’s car has machine guns, oil slick and ejector seat? Oh, please, that’s so 20th Century.

This 2014 Corvette Stingray has all the goods to make your space travel rock. Along with the awesome 29-mpg V8, it comes with a plasma induced time displacer with photoplasmotic warp propulsion! PIT WHIP for short. It simply means that it’s extremely fast and can take tight corners (Like around Jupiter’s Moons) with ease. No nonsense.

And at around $53,000, it’s a steal because on Tartarian 6 in a BoobieLoo Galaxy, $53,000 averages out to about $12 bucks. C’mon, that’s gotta be a deal people.

Oh, I almost forgot that along with its insanely gorgeous interior that is head and shoulders above any other Vette ever done, there’s a hidden button that serves up a darn good veggie burger cube, if you’re into that sort of thing.

I’ve driven many cool cars, but this Stingray just screams fun. And when you’re being chased through the PimplePark Gas Mines of Googleplex by electroCops, it helps to be comfy, confident and, of course, yellow. They hate yellow. But it also comes in nine other flavors, and all lickable.

Is the 2014 Corvette Stingray worthy of Ride of the Week? Does Chevrolet deserve the coveted universal title of being Malibu’s best. Do I love Chocolate? Answers to all these questions and more are worth our most serious attention. Because if it does, and it’s a cool car for traveling the galaxy in style, smoothability and coolness, then PCH is a cinch.

If there ever was a car that exemplified fun and bringing joy, this new Vette is it. Just try peeling this smile off my face. And by the way, I’m now in a Locktorian prison for the next week. Why? Well, I didn’t want to give the car back. But it’s ok because they have cable and really cute guards that are green. But cute.
