Why Men Leave Home.
No small wonder a man gets that faraway look—when there’s a new Corvette in the driveway. After all, this is no ordinary car. This is a real out-and-out sports car with a new Turbo-Jet V8 you can order to make it go (up to 425 hp); 4-wheel disc brakes to make it stop; and an independent rear suspension to make it handle. This is a real, live Grand Touring machine that performs with the best in the world. Yet it’s about as untemperamental as the family sedan. Corvette is a car designed for just one thing. It’s to be driven—well and often, mind you—but driven. Let it sit idle on a Saturday afternoon, and you do it an injustice.
