Before everybody pretends to be Irish tomorrow, lets take some time out of the day and celebrate something truly American: the Chevrolet Corvette.
60 years ago, the Corvette debuted with lukewarm sales and was going to get cancelled shortly thereafter. However, a redesign and some power courtesy of the iconic Chevy small block turned the tides on the sales chart. 60 years on we are now celebrating an icon with the same formula: a big V8 with pushrods up front and a leaf spring suspension out back.
Here’s hoping the new Corvette will continue in its predecessors footsteps.
