Goofs

The story says the wives got new station wagons and the astronauts got new 1960 Corvettes. However, that wasn't true. Alan Shepard already had a 1957 Corvette and received a 1962 Corvette as a gift from Chevrolet after his first flight. The new car plan was actually a $1 per year lease for two cars from Jim Rathmann Chevrolet that started in 1962, so none of them would have been driving this group of 1960 Corvettes. See more »
