  • split window

    In the late 50s- early 60s, the old TV sitcom "My Three Sons" was sponsored by Chevrolet and over the end credits they'd run film, pictures, drawings etc. of the Chevy models of that era...Corvairs, Novas, Impalas, etc. , but never any Corvettes. Then this morning, I was watching one from Fall 1962 and at the very end was none other than a brand new split window coupe. Seeing it in comparison with the other models makes you realize how radical and ahead of its time it was.

    I remember that. Same thing with Bonanza , it was sponsored by Chevrolet and ran on Sunday nights. As a kid I remember that was where you got your first glimpse of the new Chevy models as you saw a 63 in a fall 62 episode. What a memory.

      For a time, the iconic Bonanza theme song / intro with the period Ponderosa/Nevada /Lake Tahoe map that spontaneously burst into flames revealing the Cartwright clan galloping on that Zephyr Cove meadow towards the TV viewer ( with the glorious cobalt blue Lake in the background ) was "branded" with a smoking hot iron in the shape of the Chevrolet logo that swiveled into view to light said map on fire !

        I remember the time clearly, being born and raised in Reno. My family was friends with one of the Bonanza executives and we hosted many members of the cast at our ranch. My passion for Corvettes started when I was 16 and I was fortunate enough to have one of the first Split Window Coupes in town. I was told I could have anything I wanted a long as I could pay for it. My car payments were $146 per month.
