America's first true sports car...the Chevrolet Corvette. Conceived in 1953, still alive and well in 2016.
This website pays tribute to the first three generations of these plastic fantastic machines. C1 (1953-1962), C2 (1963-1967) and C3 (1968-1982). While the newer versions of Vettes are more refined, few can argue with the classic looks of the first three generations. Classic lines, attitude, horsepower, and handling are all part of Corvette history. These cars were the definition of performance in their respective days. Fuel injection in 1957. Four wheel independent suspension in 1963. Four wheel disc brakes in 1965. T-Tops in 1968. How long did it take other cars to come up with some of these features?
Corvettes appeal to restorers, racers, driving fanatics, investors, even everyday commuters. Some are driven every day, some fair-weather only, some are seldom (if ever) driven. Many older Vettes are hand-me-downs that stay in families for generations. When you own a good one, it takes some serious leverage ($$$) for someone to pry it out of your hands.
Sure, it's nice to see your old car appreciate in value, but don't put it into retirement. These cars were made to drive. If you are a true Corvette enthusiast, you probably enjoy lighting up the tires or blasting through some hairpin curves once in a while. Let your Corvette flex those muscles that Zora and The General gave it. While you are cruising down the highway, also make sure to give a friendly wave to any other Vette that crosses your path.
