The Corvette C6, a car I had the privilege of owning not once, not twice, but three times – has retired.
The C6 will always have a special place in my heart. A reminder of a younger me. A reminder of the many road trips I shared with a young lady who would eventually become my wife. A reminder of why I love the automobile.
The C6 cemented a special place in my heart as it witnessed me growing up and falling in love. In thirty years I’ll see one and all those fond memories will come rushing back.
Last month final production numbers for the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette were released, thus signifying the official end of the Corvette C6. And while Bowling Green (KY) is hard at work building the 2014 Stingray, a car that is better in every way, a part of me is still sad to see the C6 go.
In honor of the C6′s retirement I put together an image to capture some of the more interesting facts contained within the last year of C6 production.
And to my Corvette readers – save the wave.
