Everything You Want to Know About the 1973 Corvette, All in One Place.
Almost from its start, 1973 was a year full of both great accomplishments and even greater controversies. Technological feats, including the launch of Skylab and the Mariner Programs, the opening of the Sydney Opera House, and the start of the Alaska Pipeline all announced to the world that we were capable of reaching farther – of doing more.
At the same time, it saw the start of the Watergate scandal, an event that would gain international notoriety given advances in technology that allowed television media to beam its signals around the globe – an event that was ushered in, ironically, by Elvis Presley, whose second concert from Hawaii became the first worldwide telecast – and an event watched by more people than the Apollo moon landings.
Perhaps most significant of all, it saw the end of the United States involvement in the Vietnam War with the signing of the Paris Peace Accords.
