As we hit the 70th anniversary of our beloved Corvette, I thought it would be interesting to put a spin on the typical “most popular” contests, like the best generation feature I’ll be wrapping on Friday. It’s understandable why one would want to highlight JUST the most popular colors, we did it here in 2020, but why not give a little love to the “ugly ducklings”? Yes I know, there is no such thing as an ugly Corvette! Some of these unpopular colors are stunning and may surprise you.I’ve combed through all 70 years, and here they are.
