Stingray Chevrolet Part 1: Florida Chevrolet Dealership Puts An Emphasis On Performance
Posted Jul 14, 2014

Steve Hurley is no stranger to performance. As a lifelong drag racing fan and the proud father of a seasoned gearhead, his son Matt, horsepower and performance are simply in the family bloodline. And, that’s precisely why it makes sense that his dealership maintains an emphasis on performance vehicles -- so much so that it drew its name, Stingray Chevrolet -- from one of the most distinguished and iconic performance monikers in automotive history, the Corvette Stingray.
