This thread has gone on about far enough, and folks are forgetting more
than they remember -- like the Corvair, the Vette was a unique departure
for General Motors, but GM only, I believe.
IIRC, and I may not, the Kaiser Darrin (Kaiser being a good American
company), was produced prior to the Vette and was also a glass bodied
two seater, with sliding doors to boot -- and it had a manual 4-speed
and a sorta neat top, too.
Ahh, the stuff we got to see and fix while working for Dee Wescott --
good times! -- thanks, Dee!
