Six Classic Chevrolets that Defined Street performance

As part of Chevrolet’s Centennial celebration, GM Performance Parts’ Dr. Jamie Myers was given the difficult challenge of putting together a list of models that has defined Chevy Performance over the last 100 years. It’s a difficult task for sure, so Dr. Meyers visits the GM’s Heritage center where he presents his list of six classic vehicles that defined street performance.

The 1963 fuel injected Corvette certainly deserves being on this list but what about some of the other Corvettes which pushed the street performance envelope? Our list also includes the 1967 427/435 L71, the 1970 LT1 Corvette and the 1990 Corvette ZR-1. I could go on and on. And if Dr. Meyers is going to put the 2012 Camaro ZL1 on the list (which is not a classic yet), how can you leave off the 205+ mph 2009 Corvette ZR1?

Like I said in the into, it’s difficult to pull six models out of 100 years and call them the best and we do like the car’s that Dr. Meyers highlights in the video. What other Corvettes do you think deserve attention?
