Interesting that the "30th Anniversary Corvette" was the missing year ? 
(although technically that would have been the 1982 ?)

I can't believe some "insightful" / larcenous (?) GM execs didn't squirrel a 
few away for retirement ?

I wonder whose basement / Jay's Garage stores the other 42 Corvettes ?

We keep (OK, once in a great while) finding Corvairs in garages and dealers, 
right ?
