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!

Please work through Jim Hill if you would like to borrow the book for some fun reading. The book will be available for borrowing at the March 31, 2014, RCC Meeting.

You can purchase this Book on Amazon.com

Here are some additional details and publisher comments about the book.

For the making of Corvette Stingray: The Seventh Generation of America's Sports Car, GM granted author Larry Edsall exclusive access to engineers, designers, and other Corvette team members, as well as its own photographic archives, to create the complete inside story of this top-notch sports car. With more than 300 historical and behind-the-scenes photographs that take you as close to the car as you can get without sitting behind the wheel,Corvette Stingray is a must-own book for any serious gearhead—whether you're a long-time ’Vette junkie, a sports car devotee, or simply an admirer of beautiful machines.
