It is no wonder that when Chevrolet recently unveiled the 2014 Corvette, they chose to bring back the Sting Ray name. The Corvette Sting Ray of the 1960s had something of a dual personality. With its adroit handling, it was easy to drive fast and was manageable for everyday use, in keeping with the MG-beater it had once intended to be. Yet, as the available V-8s grew ever larger and the options list grew ever hotter, with more and more go-fast goodies available, the Corvette also began to take on an element of muscle car. By the mid-1960s, there were few American production cars that could take on the Bow Tie's best on road or track, establishing a proud heritage of streetable high performance that the Corvette carries forward proudly to this day..
