- "I'm going to try to learn as much as I can about the Corvette customer and the Corvette's heritage because that will make me a better decision maker as the Corvette's chief engineer. I won't be the Chevrolet public relations department. And I'm going to have a lot of work to do here, so I may not be seen out on the circuit as much as Dave McLellan was or as much as Zora is. But I am really interested in understading the Corvette mystique and the Corvette heritage. As I said, there is plenty of work to do and this is where I belong -- here in this engineering builiding working on current and future Corvettes." Corvette Fever, May 1993, Pg. 17
