Post 2014 Corvette Stingray Celebrates 60 Years of Corvette w/ World's 1st Corvette in NYC

Original post below by Dave@Kerbeck:

Original event information:

It was January 17, 1953 when the Chevrolet Corvette was first revealed to the public at the GM Motorama in the Waldorf Astoria in New York City and changed the American sports car market forever!

(1953 GM Motorama, Waldorf Astoria, NYC)

Sixty years later GM contacted Kerbeck Corvette (current owner of the EX-122) to bring that Motorama Experimental Prototype Corvette back to New York City to celebrate 60 years of Corvettes with the first, the EX-122 and the latest Corvette, the 2014 Corvette Stingray along with one Corvette from each generation!

The next morning (January 17, 2013), the EX 122 and the 2014 Corvette Stingray were loaded and transported to studios of Fox New on 43rd St in New York City.

The cars were unloaded at 4:30 in the morning and started to be put into position for their debut together.

...why does that C7 have to be so hot and gosh darn good looking. That red and black combination is a perfect match for my ZL1, well, it's free to dream anyway...they would look so bad ass together.
