Here is a great list that was sent to me via Dupont Registry!  Corvette's have always held a special place in my heart and this is a great idea to highlight the stand out efforts of the folks behind this remarkable car!

"TOP 10 BEST CORVETTES OF ALL TIME

Since the 1950s, the Corvette has been a major powerhouse behind Chevrolet’s success. While the spirit of the car has remained, the sports car has changed faces multiple times, and is currently on its seventh generation model.

Now we take a look back at the top 10 best Corvettes of all time. If you have one in mind that you think should be added, be sure to leave it in the comments below.

Chevrolet Experimental Research Vehicle II was and is what a Corvette should be. The innovative all wheel drive system has separate transmissions for front and rear axles, and the ability to transfer torque between them. Originally powered by an aluminum 377 small block, engineers stuffed the 500 HP ZL1 big block behind the cockpit.

9. 1958 Fuelie

Designed as the ultimate in flash and style, the ’58 Fuelie was decked out in more chrome than any other Chevrolet. The styling helped to change public perception from an exotic toy to a more sensible and practical car. The car was a hit, and kept the first generation selling well until the Stingray arrived.

8. 1956 SR2

Corvette’s first endurance racer, the SR2 cut through the air like a knife. After setting a speed record on the beach in Daytona, the SR2 raced at Sebring and Elkhart Lake to validate the upcoming fuel injection system and Muncie four speed transmission.

7. 2015 Z06

It is brand new, but the numbers speak for themselves. Horsepower and torque are advertised at 650, but owners have reported much higher. For the first time, the Z06 is available as a convertible and with automatic transmission. While the other cars on this list may be more historical, this one has warranty and financing options."
