50 éves a Corvette

50 éves a Corvette

2003-ban ünnepelte 50-ik születésnapját Amerika kedvenc sportkocsija, a Corvette, amely úgy tűnik, a kor előre haladtával egyre jobb formába lendül. Első megjelenése óta 1.2 millió példányt adtak el belőle, napjainkban pedig már az hatodik generáció rója a kilométereket. Az Európában is ismert, de igazából az USA-ban rendkívül népszerű sportkocsi siker­sztorija 1952. június 2-án indult, amikor Harlow Curtis (GM elnök) és Thomas Keating (Chevrolet Általános Igazgató) zöld utat ad az EX-122 prototípus sorozat­gyártásának. Az 1950-es évek elején a GM vezetői éppen egy új kon­cepciójú roadster megalkotásán törték a fejüket, amely nemcsak az országúton, de a versenypályán is sikereket érhet el, amikor Harley Earl a General Motors vezető designere letette eléjük az asztalra papíron a Corvette rajzait. A tervek elfogadása után 1953. januárjában már a közönség is megismerkedhetett a nyitott sportkocsival, az első teljesen kész sorozatgyártású modell pedig már június 30-án legördült a szerelőszalagról. A gyönyörű formájú roadster igazi ragadózóként meresztgette króm hűtő­maszk-fogait a közlekedőkre, hátul azonban az elegancia dominált. A kétszemélyes utastérben a műszerfal szim­metriku

In the 1970's, the Corvette hobby was much different than it is today. It was a time of swap meets, not catalogs or internet buying power. It was a time of new soft bumpers, catalytic converters and modest horsepower. It was also a time when new Corvette parts were scarce and most Corvette owners spent time sifting through used parts at swap meets. It was then that Jerry Kohn, a Corvette enthusiast from Michigan, was searching out much needed parts for a 1958 Corvette. He soon found that the parts he needed were either unavailable, of poor quality or overpriced. Luckily, being a tool and die maker by trade allowed Jerry the opportunity to build tooling and die cast his first reproduction parts, grille teeth for 1953-1960 Corvettes. In October of 1974, he took his first sets of reproduction grille teeth to a Corvette show in Illinois. Soon other Corvette owners were asking for grille teeth and Jerry began making sets for fellow restorers. The need for reproduction Corvette parts greatly exceeded Jerry's expectations. There was a demand for quality reproduction parts and Corvette Central was born. In the early years Jerry, with the help of his then teenage son Scott, sold his part

The Chevrolet Corvette (sometimes refered to as a Vette) is a sports car manufactured in six generations by General Motors (GM) since 1953. The first Corvette was designed by Harley Earl and named by Myron Scott after the fast ship of the same name. Originally built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, it is currently built at a GM assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The National Corvette Museum and annual National Corvette Homecoming, also located in Bowling Green, celebrate the car's history. The generations produced so far, sometimes referred to as C1 (the first) through C6 (the current one), each have multiple versions with differing features; for example, C6 includes the ZR1, which has the most powerful engine used in a production Corvette to date. Over the years, versions of the car have won awards from magazines such as Motor Trend and Car and Driver and from organizations like the Society of Automotive Engineers, and have been used from time to time as pace cars for the long-running Indianapolis 500 race since 1978. While sold under the Chevrolet marque in the United States and other locations in the world, it is sold under its own Corvette marque in Europe
