OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: The 454 Dream
America is about living large, and if you drive a Corvette with a 454, you’re basically driving an exemplification of what America is all about.
“SavageLand”, the owner of this Corvette of the Week, knows how to photograph automobiles. The guy has shot documentaries, and he has also photographed for RM Auctions.
Yes, it’s painted a very attractive, or magnetic, shade of red, but with those Z06 wheels and 15% window tint, the whole package comes together in such a way that allows this fiberglass-bodied car to take on ferromagnetic properties.
This Corvette of the Week is a rare find. Chevrolet produced only 502 ZR-1s for the 1992 model year, and among those, only 48 were painted in this car’s Black Rose Metallic.
Chimney Rock, Angels Window in the Grand Canyon, Cumberland Gap, Mount Rainier — just a sampling of some of the best sights in America … oh, and this 1965 Corvette Sting Ray 327/365 factory air-conditioned coupe. My eyeballs want to stick to this car like sap on a maple tree.
