    thubs up The Real Story Behind Mid-Engine Corvette

    Here is a really fascinating, well done and informative video on the history leading up to the C8. It is a bit long (11 minutes) but well worth watching all the way.
    RevMatchTV did an excellent job on it. Enjoy!

    Cooper was racing rear engine Formula one cars prior to the 1959 Cerv I: the 1956 Cooper T41 and 1957 Cooper T43. Cooper also made a rear engine race car (T39) that looked a bit like the 1959 Stingray prototype. You can do a web search to find images and details of these cars (I don't have enough posts to post links yet).
