Spotted in Japan: A slightly rusty, 1960 Chevrolet Corvette
May 06, 2012
This car is a certified classic! I mean, it is, right? So, how is it that I can be driving around before Johnny Nihonjin eats breakfast and see one parked like it's a garden-variety Honda Civic? It's doing my head in just thinking about it. The condition of the car is fantastic.
This Corvette Convertible was built in 1960. It has a 4,638cc V8 engine.
I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
