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!
