Chevrolet Corvette: The Best Deal In The Compact Cars

The luxury division of General Motors, Chevrolet came out with the iconic sports car Corvette in 1953, and it was produced across seven generations. Harley Earl designed the first model, which was a convertible. It was displayed as a concept show car at the GM Motorama in year 1953. The name credit goes to Myron Scott for naming it after a small, mobile warship called a Corvette.

The sports car was initially built in Missouri, Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, but is being currently manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky and is known as the official sports car of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Corvette has been used 12 times as the Indianapolis 500 pace car, and you’d see it most of the Hollywood flicks including the likes of “Fast and the Furious” series. 1966/67 Corvette is counted one amongst the most iconic sports cars of all times. And, it’s still popular among the vintage collectors, and lovers of old classic cars.
