August 26, 2019: 1960 Chevrolet Corvette, Calgary

 

I think Chevy Corvettes -- especially those made in the 1950s and early 1960s -- are among the most attractive cars ever made in America.

The Corvette was first built in 1953 -- this model was made in 1960, one of just over 10,000 made that year.  The car has a front placed engine (generally a 283 cu in (4.64 L) V8), rear wheel drive, and is a two-door, two passenger vehicle.

The Corvette was one of the first cars to use fiberglass for the outer body, a tradition that continues to this day.
