Recently the racing legend recently did his part to help save the US automaker.
Mario Andretti visited Bowling Green and the Corvette Assembly Plant today, to pick up his specially-ordered Corvette ZR1.It's great to see Mario still has money saved up and still enjoys a fine American ride, but Mario, come on, you don't have to prove anything to anyone anymore. Get yourself a nice Cadillac or Hummer instead and roll around in spacious comfort, because we've seen that getting behind the wheel of a super-beast like that 'Vette can only lead to bad things.
"Well, I've had many Corvettes," Andretti said.
"The last one was a Z06 and so, with the ZR1, I couldn't pass it up. It's clearly the best Corvette ever. It stacks up to the best supercars in the world. It's the best bang for the buck as well."
Andretti says he just had to have this Corvette, and he's excited to try out his early Christmas present.

Like say this.
Enjoy the ZR1 but please, for goodness sakes, go easy on the gas and be sure to leave that flipping upside-down stuff to your grandson, 'kay?
