History of the Corvette

C1 First Generation

Entering the 1950s, no corporation even came close to General Motors in its size, the scope of its enterprise or its profits. GM was twice as big as the second biggest company in the world. Standard Oil of New Jersey (forefather of today's Exxon/Mobil), and had a vast conglomeration of businesses ranging from home appliances to providing insurance and building Buick, Cadillacs, Chevrolet, GMC, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and locomotives. It was so big that it made more than half the cars sold in the United States and the U.S. Department of Justice's antitrust division was threatening to break it up. In the diversified 21st century, it's almost hard to imagine how overwhelmingly concentrated corporate power was in GM back then. But it didn't make a sports car. The idea of a car coming from stodgy GM that could compete with Jaguar, MG or Triumph was almost absurd. Still, there was room inside GM for dreams even if there wasn't any room for whimsy. Harley J. Earl, GM'S chief designer (formally the head of the Art and Color Section) and the man who invented the "concept car" with the 1938 Buick Y-Job, was in charge of the corporation's ambitious musings.

A Little About LTD

Brian K. Westmoreland

Living The Dream was founded by Brian K. Westmoreland in Harrisburg, PA. In 2007, Brian purchased his second corvette, a 2003 which inspired his vision of starting a Corvette Club. Brian had friends and neighbors who also owned corvettes and they'd get together at his home on weekends to barbeque, wash and wax their cars and talk shop about Corvettes. These get togethers' inspired other friends to purchase the American sports car.

The annual Corvette show, held in Carlisle, PA, the last weekend in August, is a big event for Brian and his enthusiastic friends. Brian held barbeques at his home after these shows. Many of his neighbors would come and look at the cars parked at the barbeque as they looked forward to this as an annual event. From these gatherings, discussions ensued around starting a club. Brian took the bull by the horns and started contacting friends and others local enthusiast with a love for “America’s Sports Car”.
