Corsia’s car of the day: 1960 Chevy Impala

Posted by:

How does the 1960 Chevy Impala differ from previous models?

Under the motto “Space, Spirit, Splendor,” 1960 Chevy Impala received new features like an electric brake parking light, electric clock, and back-up lights. Cruise control and a six-way power seat were also among the newly added elements. Let’s not forget the “Speedminder” – a short-lived, but useful feature that would buzz when the driver exceeded a pre-set speed limit. The Chevy design team also replaced the flamboyant cats’-eyes-resembling tail lights with ...

October 24, 1975 – DeLorean was founded

Posted by:

On October 24, 1975, John DeLorean – a handsome engineer and automobile industry executive founded The DeLorean Motor Company (DMC). The company’s less-than-a-decade-history was anything but a smooth ride.

The DMC’s only produced automobile ended up an underdog among sports/GT cars and received heavy critique for lack of power and practicality as ...

The cars Americans want that Europeans have

Posted by:

The model can be seen quite frequently in the Eastern parts of the Old Continent. Here in the States though? You can probably count them on your fingers!

Of course, you can expect that with vintage cars. We have some that Europeans want and ...

Learning to appreciate wagons: 1961 Dodge Dart Seneca

These were the thoughts that crossed my mind when I saw one vintage station wagon. People were talking about it and complimenting its looks. They were saying how cars had amazing aesthetics back in the day. I agreed, of course, but something else caught my ...

Biggest car collectors: Are they only men?

Posted by:

I have always looked at classic cars as the more romantic part of the automobile world. They carry a sense of nostalgia with them, a feeling of a past that was purer and more beautiful. And that is easy to associate with female energy. But somehow the collectors market has evolved without the vivid presence of women.

Collecting classics has never been a thing of practicality, in general. It’s an image. An artifact that confirms a desired ...
