Most ‘car guys’ can spout off hp and top speed figures till the early hours, but there are still some little known facts about the all American Muscle Car that many people don’t know…probably because they are a little irrelevant… which make great quiz night questions!
No 1983 Corvette!
There was no Corvette model released in 1983, even though the previous production run had finished in 1982, Chevrolet decided to scrap the prospective 1983 car and wait until 1984 to launch the next generation of Vette. This may well have been because emission laws changed mid year which probably saw the project scuttled. All but one of the 1983 prototypes were crushed with the survivor ending up in the Corvette museum.
