In the Sixties, Chevy's star-spangled Corvette ruled as the undisputed car of choice for NASA's pioneering star voyagers. Now, nearly 46 years after his historic Apollo 7 flight, astronaut (and Corvette aficionado) Walt Cunningham joins host Arthur St. Antoine to revisit the shrines of America's space program in Chevy's latest and greatest ground rocket, the awesome, all-new 2014 C7 Vette. From the towering rocket gantries of Florida's Kennedy Space Center to the hallowed ground of Houston's Mission Control, Cunningham and St. Antoine return to NASA's glory days — also taking time to savor some classic Vettes from the star-struck Go-Go that was 1960s America.
