But unbelievably, the best was yet to come. Corvettes in the '80s took on a new personality all their own. Customizing went to new heights and lengths.

There was even a brand new '82 Special Edition Corvette that won its ET-5 class over 65 other Vettes, then went on to take "King Of The Hill" laurels over five other class winners at the 16th Annual Corvette Nationals at OCIR. The driver? Stay tuned. Save the Wave!
