We switch gears today by directing our attention to that wonderful American dream of all men going through their midlife crises — the Chevrolet Corvette! This marks the day in 1953 on which that first three-speed, six cylinder modern American sports car. It was introduced by General Motors as a concept car. And what a concept that was. It became the dream car of every red-blooded male in my high school. It really cae into its own in 1957 when it was not just equipped with a powerful V-8 engine, but also sported an eye-tickling body design.
Over the years this car has been redesigned and improved in six phases. We have included several photos of the various models, but you will find many more in the source articles. Enjoy it and may it partially sate your dreams of riding down the highway in style.
So, let’s move on with our exploration… GLB
