Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 427 1967.psd
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a powerful automobile with excellent speed, performance, and engineering design. It is also a true car culture which has influenced many automotive enthusiasts across the world. Many people associate racing with Formula One, and that would be true, but there have actually been two separate racing seasons in America before the current one began. These two programs were the Grand Prix of America in March of 1967 and the Southern Tour of NASCAR in September of that year.
Both of these events featured some of the very best cars of the time. Chevrolet was not a manufacturer of race cars at this point, but it did produce a few sports models for other racing organizations. These included the Mercury Cougar and the Chevrolet Nova. In fact, the Stingray was originally used by NASCAR to test its aerodynamic efficiency, drag races, and down force.
After this period, other car companies were sure to take notice of this rising trend, but none more than Chevrolet itself. They saw the future in this unique vehicle, which was a small car in comparison to much larger cars of the time. In addition to being light-weight, it also had very low drag, which was necessary to get a high top speed while on the road. However, its low center of gravity allowed it to be capable of high speeds while using only its air suspension system and without the need of a high-traction tire. This is the reason why the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is such a great example of a classic car.
