Description: On the cover: The history of Chevrolet’s Corvette, now beginning its 57th year of production for 2010, is built upon a bedrock of ideas, concepts, and dreams — or dream cars — many of which influenced or altered altogether the future of America’s sports car. This month Editorial Director Dennis Adler and author and historian David Temple take us on a journey that began with a Motorama Dream Car back in 1953, and Adler also revisits the evolution of the Corvette convertible, its literal ups and downs, in his accompanying feature article. (Cover photo courtesy GM Archives) In This Issue Senior Editor Mike Mueller continues his exploration of the Muscle Car’s evolution in his latest installment of Who Put the Muscle in the Muscle Car?; Dennis Adler gives us an in depth look at another American icon, the woody station wagon, and Auction Editor Rick Carey finds the collector car auction scene free of financial impediments.
