Chevrolet has never built an ordinary Corvette. Even the most mundane coupe draws a crowd everywhere it goes. But through victory at race tracks, or exposure in film and television, or other notable achievements, a select few Corvettes have attained myth-like status.
Eighteen of the most legendary Corvettes (most owned by fellow NCRS members) - from the earliest surviving Corvette ever built to the last 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 Junior just before the elder earnhardt's tragic death- are featured in this book.
