    Looking for All Corvettes are Red Part II? This isn┬┐t it.

    If you think that Corvette Stingray by Larry Edsall will be a fascinating introspection on the inner workings of GM, how the C7 project was in constant peril, and lots of internal conflict between designers, engineers, and brass, you won’t find it in this book. This book has nowhere near the politics of All Corvettes are Red. It’s more of a happy-happy joy-joy book about the seventh generation Corvette. Think of it as a nearly two hundred page sales brochure. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a slick, comprehensively detailed chronology of the research, development, testing, introduction and production of America’s finest automobile, look no further than Corvette Stingray. I completely skipped over the first chapter: A Brief History of the Chevrolet Corvette, as I’m sure it was just a rehash of the 25+ books I already possess on the Corvette. But then the book gets into the real heart of the all new C7 with separate chapters covering the exterior and interior designs, special engineering, the new small block engine, the testing, production, and the actual driving of the beast. The pages are of heavy construction (I was constantly checking to see if I had turned two pages at a time.) The photos and illustrations are of very high quality – many of which were studio grade along with a host of candid shots in the factory and outside. Unlike many of the Corvette books I own, the photos actually followed the text. Most others in my collection had pictures having nothing to do with what was described on the page. Plus this book doesn’t have mini-biographies, histories and other stories intermingled as filler material as is common in other Corvette literature – it was C7 and all C7. It flowed very well from chapter to chapter. One can tell, though, that this is a First Edition because there were a few excusable errors in the book. Page 64 has a caption, “Ryan Vaughn (left) works with sculptors X and Y as the C7 Corvette interior buck begins to take shape,” and elsewhere, As described in Chapter XX. Looks like those placeholders never got filled in. But the funniest one was on page 174 where they refer to “Active Red Matching.” I guess that makes any color C7 act as if it were Red. Anyway, without a doubt this book belongs on the shelf of every Corvette C7 enthusiast, whether you are considering purchase, already own one, or are even just fascinated by the best production vehicles America has to offer.
