Kudos Bob, yes keep 'em comin'.

The pleasure is all mine. Anytime you get to share your passion for an amazing marque like Corvette, it's all good.

As is obvious, I'm old school. It's not that I don't admire and respect the later models. It's that I've been around long enough to witness, understand and appreciate the lineage and the amazing men behind the evolution of our favourite car.

Here's just two of the men who helped make the Corvette the incredible car that it is. I'm just a witness to greatness and I feel a responsibility to keep telling the stories as new guys come into the hobby.


Zora Arkus-Duntov and Joel Rosen

The godfather and the hot-rodder. ;)
i too am a huge fan of the pioneers in high performance engineering. men like duntov, shelby, yunnik, keith black and more exhibited such sheer genius it's hard to fathom. and to think all without the aid of computers and cnc technology. truly amazing !!! :D
Today, there are still people developing cars like the Z06 and ZR1. Fantastic cars, yet you forget the big names of today who developed these cars as fast as you hear them. As a result the cars haven't developed a persona and history as did the cars of the sixties. Perhaps it will develop over time. People enjoy the history of the old cars. People paid more attention to the GM of Canada documentation than they did our cars themselves. I remember in the early seventies going to a car show north of Hamilton somewhere. We had our COPO Chevelle. Nothing special back then. You parked in the parking lot with all the rest of the visitors. Today the same car would be a real attention getter. Give the cars of today a few decades. Unfortunately, I probably won't live long enough to see that day.
