Wait, what?

So far today Blunt Object‘s most popular search term is “cars that look like Corvettes”.

They’re called Corvettes, folks.  Let me Google that for you.

Or maybe you’re looking for the Corvette GTP, an IMSA prototype which was actually built by Lola in 1985 on a bespoke T710 chassis.  Didn’t do too well, alas.  Damn thing had a V-6 (although a Turbo V-6) in it: “GM was trying to find an engine that gave the image of fuel economy while offering maximum performance.”  (Martin, J.A. and Fuller, Michael J; Inside IMSA’s Legendary GTP Race Cars, p. 110)  For what it’s worth, Ford built a “Probe” prototype and Pontiac built a “Fiero” and a “Firebird” prototype; they also kind of sucked.

    Don’t forget the Opel GT. Those look kinda like ‘vettes that went through the wash and shrank.
