If you like that video you gotta read the book 'All Corvettes Are Red'. I believe the author of the book passed away in the last year or so. The book is a great read.

Since there were two threads for this same topic- I merged them and moved everybody over to the combined thread.

"All Corvettes are Red" is truly an interesting book and tells of the trials and tribulations that went into the design and eventual production of the C5.

Great book! :thumb

The story of how the C5 happened is really inspirational.

Fantastic !
Any body who owns a C5 should ask for a copy of this video.

I did not buy my C5 new, bought if from the 2nd owner, but Got
to tell ya, watching the video gave me the sensation of 'taking
delivery' least is the the same vain of excitment.

Heck, I even went down to the basement garage to give the old girl
(the C5) a rub down.

Thanks so much for sharing the Vid with the 'Corvette Nation'

I sent a PM but it doesn't show in my sent box. Maybe I can't send PM's yet being the new guy but I am interested. How much to go to 98374?

Opps, never mind. Reading is fundamental. I didn't have the "send a copy to sent folder" checked. LOL
