Overview


If there ever was a legendary sports car, the Corvette is it. The Corvette is an American icon reered around the globe. It is a household name, art on wheels, a fantasy in curvaceous fiberglass and chrome, a full-throttled declaration of independence, a poke in the eye to the status quo, an obsession, a religion, a way of life. Martin Miller drove one as Tod Stiles in Route 66. Roger Penske raced one, as did Dale Earnhardt. The Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, and Prince all sang rock n' roll anthems to it.

Stories by well known and respected Corvette historians and celebrities, automotive journalists, authors, and others with a tale to share are complemented by fabulous period artwork and current photographs for a nostalgic look at Corvette's influence both on the road and off. The photography comes from a variety of well known photographers and archives, and there's also a special section of paintings and art.
