Car: Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Roadster
What makes it special: Beginning with the prior year's model, Corvette started a transformation from muscle to touring sports car. For 1974, a new rear bumper system replaced the squared tail and chrome rear bumper blades with a trim, tapering urethane cover carrying an integral license plate holder and recesses for the round taillights. The anti-theft alarm key activator was moved from the rear panel to the front left fender. Tailpipes were now turned down as the new bumper cover eliminated the tailpipe extensions.
