  1. This is one beautiful Corvette! My favorites are the quad-headlight 58-60 cars, great lines and curves, V8 and four gears. Makes the modern computer self-drivers look so boring!

  2. how does one go about trying to track down the history of a particular Corvette. I have a ’58 and wondering how to use the VIN to trace back possible ownership and history of the car. I understand that prior to mid ’60s there is not a centralized repository of information which might show original owners, place of sale, etc.
