1958 Chevrolet Corvette photographed 22 May 2011 at a Classic Car exhibit in St-Lambert, Quebec, Canada

Original photo processed in PaintShop Pro v9. A duplicate layer was created and converted B&W. A mask layer was added and modified to allow the coloured image of the car to show through. The B&W layer was then darkened and blurred to lessen its impact.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D; Lens: Canon EF-24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM; f4.0 @ 1/1000 sec; ISO 400; Focal Length: 35mm

The ’58 Corvette is part of the first generation of the sports car manufactured by the Chevrolet division of General Motors introduced late in the 1953 model year and produced through 1962. It is commonly referred to as the “solid-axle” generation, as the independent rear suspension didn’t appear until the 1963 Sting Ray.

In an era of chrome and four headlamps, the Corvette succumbed to the look of the day. The 1958 model year and the four that followed all had the exposed four-headlamp treatment and prominent grills, but a faux-louvered hood and chrome trunk spears were unique to 1958. The interior and instruments were updated, including placing a tachometer directly in front of the driver. For the 1958 model only, an 8000 rpm tachometer was used rather than the 6000 and rpm units typical in 1955. Optional engine choices included two with twin carburetors (including a 270 hp (200 kW) model with Carter 2613 and 2614 WCFB four-barrels) and two with fuel injection. Power output for the highest rated fuel-injected engine was 290 hp (220 kW). Displacement remained 283 cu in (4.6 l). For the first time, seat belts were factory-installed rather than being dealer-installed as on previous models. (Source: Wikipedia)
