American sports car in production for 68 years now I thought I would up grade, and am I glad I did. Autoart does a lot of Corvettes but some are definitely better than others. The very first thing I noticed was the steering wheel, it actually looked in scale, unlike my others that would have been about four inches wide in scale. Engine detail is good on this one and of coarse the finish is great. Check out the shape and stance, oh and even the hub caps are well decorated.

I also have the '53 Vette by Autoart and will never part with it. I think all Autoart Vettes are exceptionally well done. I especially like the display that you have for the '53 Vette. Did you make it yourself?

Josh, You are right on regarding the steering wheels on most model Corvettes are too thick. This Auto Art wheel looks perfect.

@kenspear...I am switching all my 1/18 models to aquariums and trying to find things that make the display a bit more interesting. Here are some others too...
