Kind of like Beatle mania– sort of, anyway; there are a few similarities. The Corvette took a few of years to catch on and then it ignited like wildfire. It had a huge run for a long stretch and then came some darker periods; great and not so great. Overall, The Beatles live on in our hearts and memories as one of the greatest rock/pop bands ever. The Corvette – with its incredible history and its brilliant resurgence since the advent of the C6 (and now C7), has forever cemented its place in our hearts as the greatest, and America’s only, Sports Car.
I’m sure we all have our favorites and maybe you’ll disagree with my opening statements (regarding both the Corvette and The Beatles). That’s fine. I’ll go on record right now. Personally speaking– the 1963 through 1967 “mid-year” Corvettes were pure magic; the epitome of style, power, and attitude. I’ve never owned one, but find myself wishing I did.
