Chevrolet has never built an ordinary Corvette. Even the most mundane coupe draws a crowd everywhere it goes. But through victory at racetracks, exposure in film and television, or other notable achievements, a select few Corvettes have attained mythic status. Eighteen of the most legendary Corvettes of all time—from the earliest surviving Corvette ever built for the 1953 model year to the late first-generation Corvettes used in the classic television series Route 66 to the five Grand Sport racers built by Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Godfather of the Corvette, to a fifth-generation Corvette raced by the team that included father-and-son Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. just before the elder Earnhardt’s tragic death—are featured in this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Fitting Title Indeed 9. September 2010
Von Studio PCK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Legendary Corvettes: Vettes Made Famous on Track and Screen is the latest title we've been fortunate to receive from the good folks at Motorbooks, and it's LOADED with amazing photos and great cars. Written by Randy Leffingwell, and featuring some absolutely stunning photography by Dave Wendt, this is certainly a must-have for any Corvette enthusiast. Whether you're a hard-core fanatic, a racing junkie, or just love anything Corvette, this volume definitely has something for everyone

Featuring 130 color (plus 13 black and white) photos contained within the 176 beautifully laid-out (and high quality!) pages. The text is brilliant, the editorial loaded with facts, figures, odd trivia facts, and simply invaluable detail and reference shots... The book studies eighteen of the most legendary Corvettes, beginning with the 1953 Corvette... and this chapter alone is packed with design trivia, historical notes, testing data, and even Zora Arkus-Duntov's sketches, detailing airflow issues. Moving on, the racing fans will be in 'glass heaven, with in-depth looks at the '56 SR Sebring, the 1957 XP-64 Super Sport, the 1960 Cunningham No. 3, Grand Sports, LeMans legends... It's an incredible collection indeed!

Perhaps your interest in Corvettes began in the '70's with Corvette Summer?

Gotcha covered, as well. And speaking of screen-starring Corvettes, how about a look at the 1960 Tasco Turquoise 'Vette... This chapter continues the information-packed theme, with some truly marvelous insight to the car and the show... Brilliant! It's got the drag racing fans in mind, as well, with Big John's 1967 BM/SP 'Vette... in gorgeous studio shots!

Perhaps you waited a bit longer to become enamored with America's supercar, or were born a bit later... have no fear, my friend. With a great section on the '88 Callaway Sledgehammer, you're going to find all sorts of interesting goodies! I say it often (when warranted), and this book is truly a great complement to any enthusiasts library, and one of those gems that you'll reach for again and again when researching a project, or creating some concept art.

If all of this weren't enough, the slip cover folds out to reveal a poster, as well! It's the 1956 SR Sebring Racer, and the image is striking!

Brilliant in concept, wonderfully executed, this is a volume that will certainly find its way from shelf to wide eyes time and again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a wonderful book! 17. Februar 2011
Von Hib Halverson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There are scads of "coffee table" books around about Corvettes. Nichole Schiele, spokesperson for Quayside Publishing Group's Motorbooks division, says that, in 45 years of publishing automotive books, Corvette and Mustang are tied for first in popularity amongst that company's marque-specific, coffee table titles-and that's just one vendor of automotive books of which are many. It follows that while Corvette books may abound, some are bad, some good and a few are outstanding.
"Legendary Corvettes", by Randy Leffingwell is clearly one of the latter.

What a wonderful book!

Veteran automotive author, Leffingwell, picked a subject mix which some have used before: famous Corvette race cars, development specials, movie/TV cars and significant production units. What makes this title unique is the author's rich style, knowledge of the marque, tireless research and his eye for which cars, when grouped together, give the book interesting, educational and entertaining variety.

Leffingwell, a world-renowned automotive photographer in his own right, turned to another talented lensman, Dave Wendt, to handle the shooting duties-a smart move as Wendt's photographic skills are impecible and it allowed Lefingwell to concentrate on selecting the subject cars, writing and organizing the book.

"Legendary Corvettes" covers an interesting range of famous cars from 1953 VIN 00003 and the first Corvette race car of note, the 1956 Sebring road racer, to screen stars-the '60 used in the first season of "Route 66" and the C3 of "Corvette Summer-to "Big" John Mazmanian's BM/SP NHRA drag racing '61, the winged, Greenwood, GT road racers of the late 70s, the Le Mans winning C5R and the first 2009 C6 ZR1. Probably the only true legendary Corvette not covered is the second generation, '90-'95 ZR-1-an omission which incrementally affects the book, making it just "outstanding" rather than incredibly superb.

Randy Leffingwell writes about each Corvette weaving a great story using facts and emotion to emphasize just as much the people involved with the cars as the cars themselves.
What you get in "Legendary Corvettes" is 168 pages of exquisite eye candy that you'll also won't be able to put back down on your coffee table until you finish reading it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Legendary Corvettes 9. Januar 2011
Von philb93 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
A must for the automotive enthusiast, especially for all the Corvette nuts out there, chronicles some of the most famous Corvettes through the years. A wonderful companion book to Randy Leffingwell's Corvettes - Fifty Years, the book tells by chapter some of the most famous race, movie, research, and milestone Corvettes, ending with the ZR-1 model of today. Enthusiasts will enjoy the chapters on the CERV vehicles, Randy's acknowledgement that there were actually 6 Gran Sports, not 5 as reported in almost every other Corvette book, Big John Mazmanian's famous Corvette gasser, and the Callaway Sledgehammer.

Easy read, great book.
