Chevy has just released on YouTube, its first Corvette-exclusive video in as long as we can remember and it’s definitely worth a watch. Comparing the Corvette to a rocketship it makes for a great spot and will have you feeling like a proud American and a little nostalgic.

But like the ad says “It’s nice to know America still builds rockets” and so you don’t have to dream about the good old days, you can live them today – buy buying a Corvette of course.

GM seems to be putting a lot of marketing might behind the Corvette as of late, announcing yesterday that those looking to purchase a Z06 or ZR1 can now opt to assemble their own engine in what the company is calling the Engine Build Experience.

It’s believed that Chevy is looking to take the Corvette’s image up-scale to match its performance as it prepares to launch a seventh-generation car in the near future.
