Item Description

Corvette From the Inside is a really cool Corvette book. The author, Dave McLellan, was employed by General Motors from 1959 through 1992. He lead the Corvette program for GM from 1975 through 1992. This book provides intimate insight about the history of the Corvette as seen by the guy that lead the GM Corvette program.

Did you know that the Corvette program almost failed?? Yes, it is true. This book reveals all of the gory details, including technical solutions, that originally hurt the car and then later helped the car compete with Asian and European manufacturers. The challenges McLellan faced in the 70's and early 80's as he struggled to lead the Corvette program from the edge of failure to resounding success serve as a wonderfully detailed case-study in how the American automotive industry relied on the ingenuity, intellect, and pure determination of its top engineers to resurrect itself from a near-fatal slump and compete once again with Asian and European manufacturers.

This book is an impressive read for anyone interested in the detailed "behind the scenes" history of America's most iconic sports car!
