Victory Lane, June 2002

Book Review: ?Zora Arkus-Duntov; The Legend Behind Corvette? by Jerry Burton. Pre Publication Draft review. ISBN: 0-8376-0858-9 Published by Bentley Publishers.

This is going to be one of our favorite automotive personality and racing books based on a read of the pre publication draft. I'm biased as a past owner of a '56 Corvette with the dual quad carbs on the 263 cubic inch early Chevy V8 and three speed manual transmission all on a modified 64 Chevy frame and suspension. Just what the ex racer and immigrant from Russia had to work with to create the legend.
This book weaves the story well. We couldn't put it down. It has many stories and insider tales that haven't seen in our small collection of Corvette books. It is well written and profusely illustrated. Find the hardback in your local bookstore or call Bentley Publishers 1-800-423-4595
