Summary, etc.:
"The Chevrolet Corvette is commonly called America's sports car. In 1953, Chevrolet introduced the first generation of the Corvette--the C1--at the Motorama display at the New York Auto Show. Corvettes have participated in racing since 1960, when three C-1s were entered in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Today, the Corvette is in its seventh generation and is produced in a number of different packages. Since 1978, these beautiful automobiles have been pace cars for the Indianapolis 500 14 times. Throughout the years, the Corvette has been a symbol of American craftsmanship and has beaten its European rivals in a number of ways"-- Provided by publisher.
