Chevrolet is already the featured car the Monterey Motorsports Reunion races, but it's also aiming to make a big splash outside the track. The Bow Tie has put all seven generations of production and racing Corvettes up to the C7 (which of course, doesn't have a racer based on it yet) on display for fans. You'll recall that Shelby made a similarly grand display last year, showing off several historic Cobras.

Spectators can easily trace the Corvette's evolution from its humble roots, up through its days as a muscle car (the C2 on display is particularly gorgeous), and on to its current place as a world-class sports car. As for the racers, it's interesting to see not just how the Corvette evolved as a racecar, but how racecars themselves evolved from the stock-looking C1 to the C6-based Z06-R GT3 car.

We've got images of both the racers and the production cars in a complete gallery, and will have images from the actual races later this weekend. The Monterey Motorsports Reunion is set to run from Friday through Sunday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.Chevrolet puts seven generations of street and racing Corvettes on display originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 16 Aug 2013 18:31:00 EST.
