america’s first astronauts all drove corvette. i did not know that but it is very interesting. on the JALOPNIK you can find more informations about this. only a handful of documented APOLLO-era-astronaut-owned “VETTES” survive. the most original is the 1967 CORVETTE once owned by NEIL ARMSTRONG. a new initiative will restore the car to the condition when ARMSTRONG drove it. check HEMMINGS DAILY for the details of this wonderful big block. pics | Roger Kallins



what a nice old-school convertible racing car: the 2011 LUCRA LC470 “GULF” EDITION. this edition is made especially for racing but you can get the LC470 with a street permission, too. maybe this could be a christmas wish for you, but be careful with the prices. they do not show these without a registration on their website. the LC470 street version for germany has 505 PS, weights just 962 kg and has the V-8-technique of the CHEVROLET CORVETTE. hm – i do not like convertibles … pics | LUCRA
