I was always a Corvette kid more than a hot rodder back in the day. When I first saw photos of the Mako Shark my heart would not stop pounding. Living in Iowa it was several years before I actually got to see this car in person and up close. It had been on the show circuit for many hard years and was looking very ragged around the edges.
However, it was not a disappointment and excited be all over again. By this time the new C3 design had been on the street for some time so the Mako Shark was not as shocking as when it was first unvailed back in 1965. It remains a swoopy design that is over the top but has its place in Corvette lore and history.
About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. The time there was very rewarding but the urge for a slower pace moved us to Tennessee a few years ago and we love it. 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. When they don't we are usually out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at http://www.LegendaryFarms.com.
