1982 Chevrolet Corvette

1982 was the year that Chevrolet hit a new level of laziness with its Corvette. Only one engine type was offered, a 350-ci, 200 horsepower V8 (okay, this happened in 1981 as well...). It was also the last year of the C3 line of Corvettes, which may explain the limited options. Despite the limited engine options, the car was a true beauty, and the last of the Corvettes with the voluptuous lines seen in the C3s.

A Collector Edition was available.
