Curb Appeal: Rachel Ellingsen's 2008 Chevrolet Corvette

Curb Appeal: Rachel Ellingsen's 2008 Chevrolet Corvette

There’s just something about the C6 Corvette that appeals to us so much, so when our former Tuner Battlegrounds Championship Runner-Up, Rachel Ellingsen, got one of her own, we knew we could expect cool results. Ellingsen is just getting started, but she’s off to a great start with air suspension, cool wheels, and some ZR1 aero to set off the C6 just right.
