There’s Nothing Like A Corvette
Without question, there have always been a lot of nice, desirable cars out there. And indeed many of them have been Chevrolets. But when you really get down to nuts and bolts, if you are looking for something sporty with power and class there is now and there has never been anything quite like the Chevy Corvette.
The Corvette is the dream car of countless Americans, and it is indeed one of the most iconic and successful nameplates that the automotive industry has ever known.
The Corvette made its debut for the 1953 model year and it is been one of the most sought-after cars on the roadways ever since. It was the brainchild of the legendary automobile designer Harley Earl, who was the chief of design at General Motors. The creation of the Corvette was the culmination of a long-time dream for Earl, who became enamored of European sports cars years before.
Originally Chevy Corvettes were churned out of the factories in Flint Michigan and the Gateway to the West, St. Louis, Missouri. At the present time Corvettes are being built in Bowling Green, Kentucky. While we are on the subject, if you are into road trips like most classic Chevy fans you may want to take the trek to Bowling Green to visit the fabulous National Corvette Museum that is located there.
The Chevy Corvette in a very real sense transcends a mere automobile. It is an ideal, something to strive toward, and when you sidle into the driver seat and turn the key in your first Corvette it is truly a magical experience, and one that many classic Chevy fans are quite familiar with.
The Corvette is of unparalleled importance in the history of American auto making and of course it is the favorite of many people who consider themselves to be aficionados of vintage Chevrolet automobiles.
