The 1953 Corvette was a long way from the Corvette we see in showrooms today. However, put it in perspective; look at the 1953 Chevrolet or the 1953 MOPARS and Ford! The Corvette was totally different and so new looking. It was not an immediate hit with its BlueFlame Six but it lived on and became one of the most recognized cars in the world.
About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle. As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at http://www.LegendaryFarms.com.
