2021 Chevrolet Corvette C8 convertible
In 2020, the all-new Corvette C8 rewrote the model’s history. Now, this 2021 Corvette Stingray continues that legacy. It packs a 6.2-liter V8 good for 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. of torque, connected to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The mid-engine supercar features Chevy’s Z51 Performance Package that adds performance suspension, an electronic limited slip differential, performance rear axle, and upgraded Brembo brakes. You get all that, and a retractible hard-top roof to boot. GM claims this beast can clock 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Here’s our attempt to match that.
1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray
This ’67 Sting Ray comes with a factory-original 427 V8 and factory-original 4-speed manual transmission. When new, the Corvette’s engine produced 390 horsepower and 460 ft-lb. torque, allowing it to clock 0-60 times under 5 seconds. The vehicle comes with a matching auxiliary hard top, power disc brakes at all four corners, and power windows.
Backdraft RT4 Cobra Roadster
The Backdraft RT4 Cobra combines unmistakable classic 60’s styling and the use of a modern in independent suspension to provide lightning-quick performance, surefooted handling, compliant ride comfort and excellent braking ability. Power comes from a 427 cubic inch Roush V8 rated at 480 horsepower and 500 ft-lb. torque. That massive motor comes mated to a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission.

About Ronald McDonald House Central Valley
The first Ronald McDonald House of the Central Valley opened on Millbrook Avenue in 1984. It was the fourth Ronald McDonald House to open their doors in California and partnered with Valley Children’s Hospital. As the surrounding area grew, so did the need for the hospital to expand. When the hospital moved to a new location about 20 minutes away, so did Ronald McDonald House.
On February 14, 2001, the organization expanded to an 18 bedroom Ronald McDonald House adjacent to Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera, California. The new Ronald McDonald House features three wings with 18 private guest rooms. Each room contains 2 queen size beds, private bathroom, and satellite TV. Each wing comes equipped with its own laundry room, kitchen, and dining area for guests to share. Stocked pantries and private refrigerators highlight each guest room. Additional amenities include a playroom for siblings, a large communal living area, outdoor dining areas, play areas, and some spaces for quiet moments.
