A recognized automotive journalist's oversize tribute to the Corvette packs the visual as well as informational wallop necessary for this feisty breed of car. The first Corvette appeared in 1953 and "charted new waters for GM in the realm of automotive styling, captivating a car-buying American public that was only just beginning to understand European sports car styling." Adler's "biography" follows Corvette development from genesis to present day, appraising the look and performance through every year and model change. Readers learn about the styling of the late 1950s and early 1960s never being "surpassed for pure sports car appeal," about the strides in mechanical aspects in the 1960s, about the economy-car consciousness of the 1970s and consequent public reaction to the Corvette, and about the styling and performance improvements of the 1980s. Additionally, the Corvette on the racetrack is trumpeted.
