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.
