    In an age known for its electric vehicles, hybrid drivetrains, clean diesels and alternative fuels, you might not think there's a place in the world for a pushrod V8 with architecture dating back to the 1950s. GM disagrees though, and is currently making a case for continuing the lineage of one of the world's great engines. GM is soon investing $400 million at its plant in Tonawanda, NY and $235 million at the St. Catherines plant for small-block production.

It was also featured on the Stingray Concept car shown off for the Transformers movie debut, though GM and Welburn have both reiterated that the Stingray Concept is not the C7 Corvette. While the...
