Lee Cowan to Test Drive New Corvette Stingray on CBS SUNDAY MORNING, 1/20

CBS News correspondent Lee Cowan gets a sneak peek at of Chevrolet's totally redesigned 2014 Corvette Stingray and talks with NASCAR team owner and Corvette collector Rick Hendrick about the prized vehicles this weekend on CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH Charles Osgood.

"The Corvette was just the ultimate car," Hendrick tells Cowan. "I mean, it was - you had the styling, the power, all the Girls liked them."

Timed to the car's 60th birthday, Chevrolet has redesigned the vehicle for 2014 and brought back the legendary Stingray name. Hendrick, a top NASCAR team owner, has one of the largest private Corvette collections in the world, with nearly 150 in his stable. He said he met his wife, Linda, while driving a Stingray.

"She rode with me in that first Corvette on our first date and it broke down," Hendrick recalls. "She wasn't very impressed."

The two-seat sports car survived has for six decades, a period which includes General Motors' bankruptcy. "It would be such a shame for that car to be missing in America's culture," Hendrick says. "I just think it's part of the DNA of Chevrolet."

Cowan talks with Tadge Juechter, Chevrolet's chief engineer on the Corvette team, who allowed Cowan to become the first person outside the Chevrolet family to drive one. "I don't even know how to describe it," Cowan says.

Hendrick, a Chevy dealer, can't wait to get his hands on one of the new Corvettes, Cowan reports. "I think this car will probably be one of the most sought-after cars that we've seen in a long time," Hendrick tells Cowan.

Cowan's report on the new Corvette will be broadcast Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013 on CBS SUNDAY MORNING (9:00 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
