Chevro­let Corvette (Sec­ond Gen­er­a­tion)

Rules For The Modern Man - - Rules For The Modern Man -

Where the Euro­peans tended to­wards a curvier, rounded form in the au­to­mo­biles, the Amer­i­cans were tuned to­wards stronger and more in­dus­trial an­gles, giv­ing the sense of mas­culin­ity, power and ag­gres­sion without be­ing over­whelm­ing. The Corvette shares sim­i­lar styles as the 250 GTO, but Larry Shin­oda's de­sign added mus­cu­la­ture to the car. The de­sign was in­spired by au­to­mo­bile de­signer Bill Mitchell's con­cept Q Corvette, which drew its form from the Mako Shark. To call the the Corvette a deadly preda­tor on the roads would be ap­pro­pri­ate.
