It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Today’s vintage picture features two culture icons, the 1963 split window Corvette coupe and actor William Shatner.
Without knowing the date, it’s hard to say exactly what Shatner was working on at the time the photo was taken. From Wikipedia, we know that he was making appearances in both TV shows and movies in 1962-1963 including The Outer Limits and Route 66. But it was in 1966 that he assumed his most famous role, that of Captain Kirk in the Star Trek series. Other notable characters for Shatner include being police officer T.J. Hooker and more recently, the Priceline.com Negotiator.
