    G1 Tracks.

    In fact, Corvettes have been relatively popular cars with TFs.

    I've seen G1 Tracks in several colors. Blue, red, and the coolest one was black. I don't know of any other gen's that are Corvettes.

    Add Alternators Tracks, Swerve, & Battle Ravage to the list.

    Erisco did a great job of cracking the answer to your question. Corvettes are about the only American car you can count on being portrayed as realistic cars & trucks in Transformers.

    1. Tracks (1985) - blue (and sometimes red) 1978 Corvette Stingray.
      (There was also pre-TF black ones made as a "Lucky Draw" prize. An even smaller number were completely reproduced before a Hasbro C&D order was sent.)
    2. Freeway (1987) - (possibly 1986 or C4) Corvette
      (Ironically, the 4 vents on some 1990s C4 Corvettes resembled the "finger indents" used to represent hands on this Throttlebot.)
    3. Sizzle (1988) - Pro-Stock Corvette funny car (or Corvette hot rod)
      (One of the Decepticon Micromaster Race Track Patrol (1990), Motorhead is also a Corvette road or rally car. Another member, Ground Hog, strongly resembles a Corvette or Camaro/Firebird funny car.)
    4. Skram (1992-93) - Corvette hot rod (from same generation -- C3? -- as Tracks)
    5. Binaltech & Alternators Tracks - C5 Corvette, produced in blue and yellow (Japan release carrying a G1 Tracks "flame" decal)
    6. Alternators Swerve - repaint of Binaltech Tracks, with new head (and G1 flame decal needed to re-decorate blue Alternators Tracks)
    7. "Battle" Ravage - Ravage's head on a black Alternators (convertible) Corvette body, leading many a collector to try and make a quadruped out of him.
    8. Road Rage - The Pre-TF "red Tracks"/1978 Corvette Stingray is remade as a new character -- a female Autobot.
    9. ROTF Sideswipe (2009) - Corvette concept vehicle, which one hopes will become the C7 or C8 Corvette.
    10. ROTF Swerve (2009) - once again, the G1 truck-bot/absent-minded professor is given the form of a corvette, this time in Sideswipe's G1 red color scheme, with a new head (that many hoped would go to Sunstreaker).
      (Still hoping for a yellow or gold repaint of the Sideswipe mold...)

    AMG: Windcharger is a 1983(?) Pontiac Trans Am. (remember Knight Rider?)
    Tailgate is the same car as Windcharger with the T/A hood scoop made symmetrical. (I just call TG a Pontiac Firebird to set the 2 apart.)
    Windbreaker is a (1991 or '92?) Chevrolet Camaro. By the time he came out in the States, Chevrolet had gone to a completely new design.

    Technically, Depthcharge is a Littoral Combat Ship and while they're similar to Naval Corvettes, there are slight differences, namely in that LCSs have land assault capabilities.

    Alternator Tracks is quite possibly my favorite Alternator...although I love the C6 Zo6 much more than the C5 Corvette.

    I also prefer the blue, not just because Tracks was/is, but because it is my favorite color.
