Actually, a Corvette came first. I've just read an article about it online. If I find the link again, I'll post it
Here it is...

"If you didn't know, Opel is a division of GM and are built in West Germany. Opels were sold through Buick dealers during the sixties up to 1975. The GT's were built from late '68 until 1973 and were designed by the same guy that did the 3rd gen Corvette Stingray, thats why they look simmilar."

It's not the article I've read, but still.
