A traditional for Spring: The 1961 Chevrolet Corvette.

Fact be informed, I was never a giant fan of cars made from what is basically a formed bonded plastic– Fiberglass is for boats, not cars! They squeak, rattle, and creak like an old cruising ship. Years in the future, carbon fiber and Aluminum will do a much better job with less weight and higher tensile strength.

It does not matter.

About the 283 engine: The power output for the fuel-injected engine was 275 hp. The replacement 327 engine in this cars and truck was available in later years and makes 315 hp.

This car as of this writing is bid to $61 k; they can go for as much as $150 k

I was never a big Corvette-head– I appreciated them, and I truly like the brand-new one– but this one, produced in the year I was born, I would add to the stable of horses in the barn.
