Peter Brock at AutoBooks-Aerobooks

Burbank CA, Sept 7 2013Peter Brock was on hand at AutoBooks-AeroBooks to sign his new book; an inside story of the development of the revolutionary 1963 Corvette Stingray:

"Corvette Stingray - Genesis of an American Icon"

On an unassuming corner of Burbank California, there lies a book shop steeped in the history of the automobile and aero industries that seeded the area with creative gusto. Saturday morning coffee is a tradition with the locals. You never know who is going to stop by and what car you might see when you visit. The book store has great friends, and they don't mind sharing. This week it was a great privilege to meet Peter Brock; the very influential automotive design icon from across many brands and eras.

Peter gives much credit of the survival of the Corvette to Bill Mitchell; and understates his contribution to a formative period of Corvette evolution; the '63 Stingray. The book is coffee table worthy; chock-a-block full of beautiful pictures, original sketches, and personable Corvette history as it happened. Peter could write a few other books - parked out front was the beautiful  Superformance Brock Daytona Coupe based on his original design for Shelby. Thought ugly on first review, the design was an aerodynamic winner on the track. Success has followed Peter in each wind direction.
