Corvette Thunder: 50 Years of Corvette Racing 1953-2003


Dave Friedman Dick Guldstrand


On June 30, 1953, the first Corvette rolled off the assembly line in Flint, Michigan. It was not long afterward that the first Corvette rolled onto a racetrack starting grid. In the intervening 50 years something truly astounding took place: the Corvette, America’s sports car, became a dominating force in racing around the world. It is a fascinating story with as many twists and turns as the racetracks the Corvette has won on. It is also a story that has yet to be told the way it should be. Until now! 500 black and white and 150 color photos. 9 1/2″ x 11 1/2″. Slipcased.
