The King of Cool



It seems impossible. At one time, the Corvette was the car that almost nobody wanted. When it first surfaced for the 1953 model year, the cars were rough-riding, underpowered, and lacking in the "fit" and "finish" that buyers of refined roadsters would normally expect.



Through six generations and major makeovers, Chevy's European-inspired rocket has outperformed and outlasted the competition. There is no other car that enjoys such a rabid fan following, and no car is more instantly recognizable, regardless of the year.



In Corvette: The Great American Sports Car, accomplished automotive author John Gunnell provides a year-by-year examination of the Corvette's evolution. With more than 225 photos and fact-filled biographies of every production Corvette ever built, Corvette: The Great American Sports Car is a handy, colorful, authoritative reference sure to appeal to any Corvette lover.

But i like a coulple fords. The ford gt, not the mustang but the gt, is the fastest car in the world sold to people. The ford raptor is a really nice truck. But those are really the only fords i like except the 70s bronco and 70s F series.
