When you think about a true American car, the Chevy Corvette has to come to mind. It is a very unique and stylish vehicle. It is one designed for speed, racing and prestige, and to be a leader among the muscle cars. While the overall design may have changed a great deal from when it first came out, you have to admit it still has the ability to turn heads and entice consumers.
The first Chevy Corvette was introduced in 1953 and there are now 6 generations of this vehicle on the road. The older models are the ones that most collectors are after. In fact, there were only 300 of the 1953 model made, so they are worth an astronomical amount of money today.
There are those consumers that love the upgraded features and modern technology that they gain with a newer model of the Chevy Corvette. The second generation was introduced in 1963 and this is the design that is referred to as the Stingray. Over the years, there were more minor changes introduced but Chevy has been careful to be true to the original concept of the Corvette.
It wasn’t until 1997 that there was a major overhaul for the Chevy Corvette. This involved making the vehicle more reliable overall. This model offered better handling and better efficiency. The seating was also designed to offer more comfort than owners enjoyed before. In 2003, the 50-year anniversary model of the Chevy Corvette was introduced in limited numbers. Experts believe it will be one of the most valuable later models of the Corvette due to the meaning and low numbers produced.
There are many Chevy Corvette clubs that allow people to enjoy this classic American car to the fullest. They can drive from one location to the next in a large convoy to show off their model of the Corvette. For those that love them but don’t own them, showing up at those car show events to admire them is just as much fun!
