“In simple terms, the Corvette is an icon—America’s symbol of road supremacy.” With this month’s Special Section giving the spotlight to America’s favorite sports car, the Corvette, let’s take a look as to why these high-performance two-seaters are so endearing to many. For most of their existence, Corvettes have always been blessed with striking, wind-cheating shapes and powerful, earthshaking V-8s, which are just two of countless reasons car enthusiasts across the world are obsessed with them. It’s one of those rare cars that has always been a feast for the senses: Its racy silhouette and cozy interior combine with fierce acceleration and road-hugging handling to create a unique and exciting driving sensation, punctuated by the staccato rhythm of the engine’s potent rumble.

Canazzi’s Studillac WE THOUGHT WE’D SEEN ALL THE REASONS FOR SOMEBODY TO BUILD A CUSTOM car until we came across a recent article on Hank Canazzi’s Golden Ray Studillac: a highly modified 1953 Studebaker Commander built as a precursor to fiberglass boat construction. As Glenn Brummer wrote about the Golden Ray on Undiscovered Classics (www.undiscoveredclassics.com), Canazzi lived in Buffalo, New York, and, though he’d previously customized his Buick, he had more of an interest in boats and built a business selling boat kit plans.

SELLING PRICE $50,000 SELLING PRICE $41,800 CHEVROLET’S ADVANCE DESIGN PICKUPS were made with the customer’s comfort in mind. The larger cabs provided some much-needed extra head and leg room, while easily allowing for three people to ride inside. The 3100 was Chevrolet’s half-ton for that year, and the Advance Design showed off a tough, rugged appearance combined with the sleek and iconic lines that were synonymous with 1950s GM design. This truck was newly restored and had been driven only 100 miles since completion. Its entire drivetrain had been rebuilt and the exterior was finished in period-correct Juniper Green with black fenders and running boards. The oak bed was new with polished stainless trim, and the interior was also…
