But through victory at racetracks, exposure in film and television, or other notable achievments, a select few Corvettes have attained mythic status. Eighteen of the most legendary Corvettes of all time-from the first Corvette ever built for the 1953 model year to the late first-generation Corvettes used in the classic television seriesRoute 66to the five Grand Sport racers built by Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Godfather of the Corvette, to the fifth-generation Corvette raced by the father-and-son team of Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. just before the elder Earnhardtrs"s tragic death-are featured in this book.

Author Biography

Randy Leffingwell (Santa Monica, California), MBI’s best-selling author and a premier photographer, has earned a reputation as one of the most thorough automotive researchers working today. He has written and photographed more than two dozen books on topics ranging from tractors to motorcycles to cars to barns, and is the author of the best-selling Corvette 50 Years.


For over twenty years Dave Wendt has captured the essence of all types of vehicles in photographic images, from exotic and classic cars to big-rig trucks and even trains and airplanes. He’s developed unique lighting techniques that let him create studio-like photographs on-site. Dave lives in West Chester, Ohio.
