The Corvette is second amongst my models by number: 26 Corvettes, 13 Mustangs and 18 Porsche 911s. All these models look amazing and are produced by many different diecast manufacturers.
Twenty-six of my Corvettes in assorted scales.
The seventh generation of Corvette is released this year, the C7, I’ll be looking for one to add to the collection. The Corvette began as a show car way back in 1953.
Designed to interest returned American servicemen who had fallen under the spell of Jaguars, MGs and Triumphs during their World War II service in Europe, the Chevrolet Corvette was the first proper American sports car.
My favourite style of Corvette the C2 (the second generation 1963-1967). The second-generation car was more avant-garde than its predecessor, with flip-up headlamps, a long, louver-adorned bonnet, tapering rear deck, doors that ran into the roof and a split rear window. Known as the Corvette Sting Ray, the design inspired as the name would suggest from deep sea fishing, the bonnet looks like it has gills.
The largest model in my collection is this 1:24 scale 1970 Chevrolet Corvette (C3) by Maisto. The C3 introduced T-tops to the Corvette range as well as a vertical rear window flanked.
1/64 Mustangs and Corvettes from Hot Wheels and Matchbox line up opposite each other.
Some sixth generation Corvettes (C6) from Hot Wheels and Kinsmart.The C6 marked the reintroduction of exposed headlamps – the first model not to have pop-up units since 1962.
