Where do you get your facts? It was Chevy that broke the AMA deal by running their racing program out of the back door. They were supporting private SCCA and stock car teams running their products "unofficially", Ford basically said"if that's what's going on why hide it?" and went full factory. And Chevy knew all about what zora was doing with the GS's, how do you think he got his hands on those aluminum 377 small blocks? They hooked up with Mecom and the Nassau race organizer to get those cars down there. The sweetener was Chevy giving Mecom one of the small blocks to run in his Lola sports prototype. That's the car that beat everyone in every event it entered. The GS's scored "class" wins. The ones that finished that is. And they DID run in Nassua the next year, only by then Shelby had prepared a 390 Cobra for that ass, it pretty much did to the Chevy's what they had done to the 298 snakes the year before....right up to the point it broke.

How about that one American company that has never gone bankrupt or borrowed money from the federal government, and sells the #1 selling vehicle in the world and makes 160 billion a year. What's it called again? Oh yeah, FORD

This was a great video, but it also must be said that even though the Cobras did dominate the race tracks of the 60's, they did not always win, out side of the Grand sports names like Dick Thompson, Dick Boo, Dick Gulstrand and Bill Sherwood beat the Cobras at there own game in Stock 63- Z0-6 Racing Corvettes. Dough Hooper won the first Riverside race against Cobras in 1963. The L88 427 66 Corvettes painted the writing on the wall for Cobras! By 1969 Corvette was king again..and as they say the rest is History!

Fucking skinny jeans. Zora is the godfather of corvette along with Bill Mitchell. Harley Earl is the farther of the corvette.

really dropped the ball on "Winning races and filling cavities." "Winning races, and fitting braces" would have been much better.

I dont get how building a race car somehow creates anti-trust issues.
You clearly know a lot. You clearly are able to present facts in an interesting manner. Just STOP ACTING LIKE A CLOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is really a good advice. Out of curiosoty: how do people on the street react to you? Do they always take you serisouly? Or do people who meet you in person just take a selfie with you and then very quickly go away? Are you perhaps taking some drugs? Are you high during some of those shoots? Were you always like that? Even as a child? Did you have problems growing up?

Gotta love how Chevy ordered these cars to be destroyed numerous times, yet have no problem using the Grand Sport name nowadays to sell more corvettes.
Darian Murcott-Istead
Soooo, purpose built racecars beat modified production cars... Nooo shit lmfao.. They never went door to door as they never homolagated them. Hence, a Ferrari 250 gto could afford you all 5 of the original grand sport Vettes and a far more common 427 Cobra is still valued in the millions..
