Hooniverse Asks- What is History’s Greatest Corvette?

2014 Vette


The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette made its debut Sunday at Detroit’s incongruously named North American International Auto Show. The ‘Vette may be more at home in Bowling Green Kentucky, but truth be told, its birthplace was (almost) the Motor City- a couple hundred Blue Flame six-powered examples being hand built in 1953 in a converted truck plant over in neighboring Flint.

That was an inauspicious beginning for what would ultimately become the longest running car nameplate – the Suburban is the truck champ – in Chevrolet’s history. Over that 60 year and – as of yesterday – 7-model span, the Corvette has seen models ranging from good to great, as well as from merely meh to must avoid. It’s not those latter ones that we’re interested today however.

What we do want today is your vote for the greatest Corvette of all time – the one ‘Vette to rule them all. Whether it be a street car, race car, or wild pie in the sky show car, which Corvette do you think deserves to be called history’s greatest?
