1953 Chevrolet Corvette
Calendar year 1953 was a notable one for Detroit: the Lions were NFL champs, the Red Wings won the Stanley Cup, and Chevrolet introduced the first Corvette. The very first experimental Corvette was known as the EX-122, and on June 30, 1953, the first production Vette rolled off the assembly line in Flint, Michigan. During its first year of production, Corvette was only available in Polo white with a red interior.

  1. Great rendition — especially of the Cadillacs. When will we ever see another Cadillac to rival those shown here? We need a new icon without worrying about fuel efficiency and “organic” greenness.

  2. A bright red Cadillac convertible was my ideal car when I was a kid and it still is. They don’t make such gorgeous cars any longer.
