To be accurate stingray started in 1963 and 1967 was the last year. I have owned a 75 convertible and a 73 t top. Lost both in a bad divorce 15 years ago.

Actually the name was introduced with the 63 model, abandoned on the 68 model & due to buyer complaints re introduced for 69 & carried on through the 76 model year.

The Mako Shark nick name comes from the styling exercise for a show car that provided the basic lines the 68 model brought to market. See the photos of the Mako Shark ll here.

Great car, good photo.
I don't know how much control you had in choosing the location but there are some distracting objects in the background. I haven't really done any automobile photography, but one challenge is the reflections.. yours are, I think okay.

Okay....Corvette not Stingray. :) No choice in location; someone just parked it there and saw it on my morning walk with wife. Thanks for the comments and the education.

Shoot, now I really feel old. I bought a new Corvette in 79 and it doesn't feel that many years ago. When you said "Old", I was thinking 60's.

Yeah, we all get old. Won't say how old I am but I did get drafted if that helps :-)

The ExiF tells me it was a single shot, but it has a Brenizer feel to it. Very nice! I had a 1985 C4 (Barbie Corvette), I miss it, but not as much as my -74 Super Beetle.
