As has been mentioned before, I’m not much of a “car guy” myself, but I have always appreciated the beauty and power they posses, especially these types of classics. After the many impressive car photos I’ve seen here on TE, I figured it was about time I take advantage of one that I’ve had at my disposal for many years now…and I bet you can’t guess the inspiration behind this?? :)
This model of Corvette was produced in St Louis, Missouri from August 1961 through August 1962 with a total production number of 14,531. The base price at the time was $4,038 USD. All 1962 Corvettes were convertibles with over one-half receiving an auxiliary hardtop.
A few fellow photographers in particular, relating to point of view and location (which is much better realized in the WS photo) had a heavy influence on finally getting motivated enough to take these shots. Although it proved a bit more challenging than I would have assumed, it was fun trying to capture this cars appeal. So for all of the enthusiast’s out there, this one’s for you!
Thanks for looking!
