Celebrations begin this year to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Chevrolet Corvette. There's no one more qualified than Dave McLellan to reflect upon the remarkable endurance of this legendary American icon. Dave McLellan belongs to a select group by having been the second of only three Corvette Chief Engineers to date. He is also the very first Corvette Chief Engineer to sit down and write his view of the incredible story of America's foremost sports car.In Corvette from the Inside Dave McLellan talks about his years at the center of Corvette Engineering, his take on Corvette history and many of the details that have made the Corvette a perennial favorite with millions of Americans. As McLellan describes the incredible highs and lows in the life of the Corvette, he also paints the bigger picture of the American auto industry's ability to rebuild itself whenever its survival is threatened.McLellan uses every tool at his disposal to tell his story, including original sketches and charts drawn by him exclusively for this book, scores of archival photos from GM, photos from his personal collection, and of course his own first-hand memories of 32 years at General Motors. Whether you're interested in the Corvette from an engineering perspective or simply a fan of the celebrated sports car, you'll want to own a copy of Dave McLellan's Corvette from the Inside.

In this book, John Mulhern III writes about traveling a total of 6,281 miles in 15 days - a route through sixteen widely (and wildly) different states including not only stops in the the cities of New York City, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Denver, but also nights in the small cities and towns of Warsaw, Marshalltown, and North Platte. Adventures on the road (including mechanical issues of various sorts) yield to visits with friends old and new, encounters with various other Corvettes and other vehicles of interest, and more than a few great places to eat, sometimes in the most unexpected places. This is a book for travel lovers and most certainly for Corvette lovers, but most of all for devotees of the stunning beauty and endless variety of the United States of America. It includes several maps of the route, an annotated bibliography, and over 140 photos and illustrations, almost all in color.

Lavishly illustrated with dramatic color photographs detailing the evolution of the Corvette—from the inside out—this book has been newly revised for 2005 with updated information and new photographs.
