I feel bad that Jeffrey Smith has to write this crap. He probably got his degree in English or Journalism and expected to write about the war in the middle east or corruption in DC. Instead, he gets stuck writing drivel about Corvettes with luggage racks. Hang in there, Jeffrey. Something better will come along.

Is this guy 14?
This is a new low. All those looked great when they came out except the 95 yellow wheels.

The 1998 is pretty awful. Luggage racks are pretty lame as well. I'm actually liking the 1995...

Luggage racks are pretty cool with people under 30 these days. I get lots of compliments on the rack on my '71. It comes in real handy for road trips since there is so little storage on a convertible.

I do agree on the 95 Pace Car. When it came out it looked hainous on photos, and magazines, and it was worse when I saw it in person.



The 88 Corvette is not ugly. It's the 1988's 35th anniversary with 17" wheels. This was the first time Corvette had 17" wheels.

The 58 never gets love because it's chrome.

The 98 pace car....well the 95 would receive 10 star on ugliness, the 98 would receive 9 stars.

Regarding the 73, its what it is. The government's mandated rubber bumpers.

I would love to have a 95' pace car. Also, the 58 looks great. The 98 on the other hand.......

Yeah, '58's used to be considered the least-desirable C1 year, even within the mostly look-alike '58-'60 years. The '58-'60 group as a whole got criticized for the doubled-up headlights, the heavier bumperettes, etc. And then the '58 cars caught special grief for the fake hood louvers and trunk-lid chrome spears.

But over time the overall-look of the '58-'60 cars has grown in appeal. Maybe the exterior styling is still not as clean as the '56-'57 cars, but the interior is a lot nicer, with the big speedo and the chicken bar. And I like the covered side-coves and the rear bumperettes a bit more than the '56-'57 design.

In the end, the '58's are having the last laugh, as the one-year nature of the louvered hood and trunk spears has led to them being worth just a tad more than the '59 and '60 cars, or at least that's what it seems like.
