The 1965 Corvette Sting Ray was in its day the C7 of the era, you might say.
The third year of the second generation featured serious updates for drivers, not the least of which was Zora’s long-awaited disc brakes at all four wheels to provide the best possible stopping ability for the time.

That’s what Edgartown police, fire, and medical responders found around 11 a.m. last Sunday when they reached the site of a car crash at Katama airfield off Herring Creek Drive.
