Milk. Turkey Bacon. Pork Rinds. Beer. Grocery stores stock nearly all of our daily necessities. One such store, however, in Brunswick, Maine also happened to house a 1954 Corvette with 2,300 miles on the odometer for over 25 years.

That premise has carried over to the final stages before the seventh generation is unveiled to the public on Jan. 13, 2013 in Detroit.
Clay Dean, global director of advanced design at GM, recently explained the background behind Chevrolet’s decision to work with a game designer and allow the use of a camouflaged C7 in a game before the real car is even available to drive.

One of the criticisms that has long dogged the Corvette Team throughout the C6′s production has been the perceived lack of quality in the Corvette’s interior.
