True, but at its core the Corvette always remained a two door two seat sports car. The T bird was everything from a sports car to a four door luxury car, and everything in between. I always was partial to the C3's also. I have a 1972 stingray roadster in Elkhart Green ...soon to be Targa blue.Hm. You have a good point. Even the Corvette went through some pretty big design changes, though. There are some models that I would KILL to own, and others that I wouldn't take if someone gave it to me. (OK, I would take it but just to sell it to buy a different year.) It's true that it's history has been more a refinement than a transformation, though. Still... none of the Gold Wings from the last decades are the naked muscle-bike that the lineage started out as. Then came Vetter and the rest is history.
As for the Corvette? I'll take a 1970 in metal flake ruby-red, please: The History of Chevrolet's Corvette, from 1953 to Now
