Is the recession over?
I don't think so. One of my barometers for the state of the economy is still way over on the negative side, namely Corvette sales.
I reported in July that Corvette sales were continuing to slow down.
And the picture through October was even worse. Corvette's 10-month sales were off 10 percent, standing at just 10,809.
Chevrolet sold 13,934 Corvettes last year, and as I've noted previously, you have to go way back to 1961 to find a worse sales year for the Vette. As recently as 2007, 33,685 Corvettes were sold, according to the Automotive News Data Center.
