Little Red Corvette

“…Baby you’re much too fast.” Indeed, every “Little Red Corvette” (and any other color) that Chevrolet built was fast. But for this year’s Best Detroit Car Brand — Division, the ride of the ’80s was the Camaro IROC-Z. With its boxy yet sporty design, it suited the era. As Car and Driver put it in a recent roundup of the coolest cars of the 1980s, “The third-generation Chevrolet Camaro is a wheeled embodiment of the 1980s, the angular styling the perfect complement to that red-leather Michael Jackson jacket in the closet, the removable T-tops ideal for blow-drying that ’do on the go.” As the late legend Prince might say: “Move over baby, come on, give me the keys.” chevrolet.com
