A Top 10 list has been assembled to rate the ten quintessentially American Inventions by Askmen.com. There have been so many inventions to come from this most inventive land that narrowing out the Cotton Gin, Peanut Butter and Fantasy Football from the list would prove difficult. However the folks at Askmen succeeded on their own terms in creating a Top 10 and the Chevrolet Corvette just made it in at number 10.
The Corvette was a revolution for the car industry and since its introduction in 1953 there have been only 6 body styles released (labeled as C1-C6). The 7th design of the Corvette is scheduled to be introduced in 2010, which amazingly is not very far from now.
As inventions go the Corvette is truly as American as Baseball; which happens to be number 5 on the list of American Inventions. It is only fair since Baseball has been around twice as long as the Corvette.
Here are the Top 10 American Inventions as selected by Askmen.com
1. The Presidency
3. The Steamboat
4. Blue Jeans
5. The Airplane
7. The Western
8. The Colt .45
9. Bourbon Whiskey
