Rebuilding a Legend: The Corvette C5

Posted by Melissa on 6/6/2013
Many car owners still want to say that they own a Corvette. The reasons why are as many and varied as the amount of ingenuity and classic American engineering that the Corvette brought to the high performance automotive industry. When it was introduced in 1997 it offered a back to basics approach to the look and style of the car. Where the C4 attempted to bring it into a more modern look with a sleeker design the C5 was a more rounded and imposing monster like the Corvettes that came long before it. The fastback coupe had a trunk, the first one in almost forty years.

Performance certainly wasn't held back on in the upgrades available in the C5. The C5 Z06 was a high performance monster that could go from 0-65 miles an hour in just under five seconds. It was a nod back to the C2 that was built for imposing speed without losing anything in aerodynamics.

It's not wonder why the Corvette has attracted so many people who are hooked on the design of the car. Many people who make a habit of restoring cars have at least one and the C5 is an excellent choice in a 'vette for anyone looking to get into them.

Corvette isn't just a name in cars. It's one of the names in cars. It's an American Icon that unlike so many of the others today is irreplaceable. Corvette has a lingering and powerful dedication to quality and performance matched with elegance. That's not something that is seen very often and certainly not for more than fifty years.
