The Chevrolet Corvette is probably one of the greatest American cars of all time. It is the pride and enjoy of Chevy in the racing world, capable of taking on the likes of Porsche, Ferrari, and Aston Martin in the GT circuit.

@dr pepper I'm just... I don't understand. How do you justify naming a stingray or a shark over a C7?

@Mike Kramer I can tell you don't know what you're talking about when you said a hellcat is half the price of a corvette. There is only 1 corvette double the price of a hellcat, the rest are same price range or cheaper. The second giveaway was the fact that you think car manufacturers don't steal each other's technology. They all do it. There is no manufacturer on earth which doesn't knock-off their competitor's developments. Why are you condemning GM when you drive vehicles with knocked-off tech in it? Does your front end collapse if you hit something? I hope you drive a Benz cuz if not you're driving a car with knocked-off tech. Does your car have OHVs? If it's not a Buick, you're driving a car with knocked-off tech. Who owns Buick again? Oh ya... your car has tech they stole from GM. Quit being a prejudice troll.
Creeperboy and friends
I think I may have encountered one of these recently at a car show Along with the new C8 (;

Your information is not accurate, the Superformance cars are replicas licensed through Duntov Motor Company to Superformance, only Duntov Motor Company holds the GM license and can and is licensed to build continuation cars and has built 13 with the VIN numbers continuing form #006 onwards. Cool video but fact checking is important.

I Am Happy So Why Aren't you?.
I'm starting to realize that the creators of these mean machines knew what they had built, and at least a few of the cars that were just made to be crushed were saved/stashed in someone's garage quietly!. LOL And to those who saved such innovative monsters of the day are freakin heroes in my book!. Thanks for sharing as always Donut Media and for shining light on their stories while showing a good amount of appreciation for those classics and those Dr. Frankenstein's who had created such amazing machines it's the best history lesson ever!. 🙏🍻
