Most people have heard about time travel and a time machine. The time machine is believed to have the capability to go back to the past or go into the future. The popular opinion about this concept is that it is a mere imagination made famous by the physicist Albert Einstein and author H. G. Wells in the novel “The Time Machine” published in 1895. Recently, Stephen Hawkins also made references to the concept.
Time travel is viewed as a fiction that is only possible in stories and impractical in real life. Meanwhile, it is not impossible to have such a machine to travel in the “fourth dimension,” according to physicists.
Well, as a digression from the fictional concept, a classic Corvette rental offers you the chance to “time travel” without the need of a fictional book or inventing the potentially impossible. How is that possible? Because a classic Corvette rental can give you the feeling you have time traveled. Immersing you in the vehicle that made American sports cars great. Surrounding you in the technology of the past. And stirring you to relieve a time that has come and gone. Keep reading to see more about what made the Corvette unique and where it came from.
