In early October 2013, the Rochester Corvette Club was
approached by Ben Abraham and Nichole Schiele (Marketing
Manager) from Quayside Publishing Group / Motorbooks about a
book on the C7 Stingray they were in the process of
publishing. They committed to providing a copy of the book
for our Club in exchange for us promoting it. Well, we have
received the book, and after you review it, study it and
admire the incredible content they have packed in it, I
think you will agree with me that it is an excellent
addition to our Club library!!!!
Written by Larry Edsall, the book, Corvette Stingray: The
Seventh Generation of America's Sports Car, (c) 2013,
provides insightful details about, and insiders'
perspectives of, the design, engineering and
manufacturing/assembling of the awesome Chevrolet C7
Stingray. You'll find lots of technical data about the C7
Stingray as well as many, many colorful, high-definition
photos of sooooo many things C7 Stingray related.
Ron Fellows, Corvette Racing Emeritus and Corvette and
Canadian Motorsports Halls of Famer, opens the book with a
personally focused Foreword. What follows is a brief history
about the Chevrolet Corvette, details about the C7 Stingray
exterior and interior design, technical engineering, LT1 and
assembly. It is a cool book indeed!

the book for some fun reading. The book will be available
