American Mensa members took a stroll down memory lane and were asked to choose their favorite classic car. Leading the pack was the Chevrolet Corvette. Comments from members about the overall winner ranged from the artistic, “I can look at this car as a work of art,” to the car’s impact on the auto industry, “It was/is a true AMERICAN sports car that others would try to emulate for decades to follow.”

Randomly selected members chose their top 10 from a list of 30 popular and classic cars. The top 10 list of classic cars, as selected by Mensa members:
1. Chevrolet Corvette (1953-1967)   
2. Ford Mustang (1964-1968)   
3. Ford Thunderbird (1956-1957)
