corvette dreaming

Pictures posted by sailor, summons up memories of the era when cars had style. Its to bad that cars of today look so simular.
My first car was a 55 chevy, but always wanted a 58 to 67 corvette , c1or c2, after that model year, to me, the styling went down hill.
Thats not to say that the new corvettes aren't better cars but they look blah. The c2 corvette, 63 thru 67 was called stingray, chevy
just introduced the new 2014 ,c7, corvette, which they are going to call stingray, to bad it doesn't have the c2 looks with the new technology.

c1 corvette



c2 corvette

Very nice series of photos of a car that i feel in love with when I was quite young. I think the TV series Route 66 really put the bug into me, especially since we lived on Route 66 in Victorville CA. I owned a 66, 62 and a 60 over the years, each had different cid's and personalities, all a pleasure to own and drive. Thanks for the memories.

I loved Route 66 for the car they drove around in. it was the same with Bonanza, I couldn't wait for the adds
Especially in sept when the new cars came out. Never owned a corvette,but have always wanted one.
The c1 c2 vettes today are 50 k to over 100 k.

What a beautiful series of some beautiful cars - a delight to see and you've made my buddy Bob's day. That C-2 is breathtaking, but all of these cars look remarkably pristine - and very valuable. Where were these taken?

The Corvette is an "Iconic" vehicle...always will be...there's nothing like it.
Some lovely examples there.
Cheers, Pickles.
