Jim Perkins, Who Saved the Corvette From a Moribund GM, Dies

Much has been written about Jim Perkins, the Texas boy with a keen love of Chevrolet whose relentless ambition finally placed him in GM’s sphere of influence. It’s thanks to Perkins that Chevrolet’s Corvette is still General Motors’ halo car, and not some long-departed nameplate culled during the height of badge engineering. Perkins’ quintessentially American […] The post Jim Perkins, Who Saved the Corvette From a Moribund GM, Dies appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Chevy now sells 4 different Corvettes, and we’ve driven them all — here's how they compare (GM)

Chevrolet now produces four different versions of the seventh-generation Corvette, as well as hardtop, targa, and convertible options. I've driven 'em all: the Stingray, the Grand Sport, the Z06, and the ZR1. My personal favorite is the Grand Sport. The Chevrolet Corvette has been in production since 1953. Now on its seventh generation, I like to remind myself that it was the first truly stunning car I ever got a ride in. It was back in the 1970s, at my grandparents' farm in Ohio. A car-nut f...

Four-Links – Ballot built, joystick Saab, Seventies staples, students restore cop car

It’s a good bet that the 1921 Ballot straight-eight that John Ballard Engineering recently assembled for a customer may be the last time anybody will take on such a project. Fortunately, Ballard documented the entire process. * The joystick-controlled Saab 9000 that Gary Axon wrote about this week for Goodwood may not be the most pertinent part of his article discussing the European Prometheus program, but it’s certainly the most photographic. * A number of attributes defined the cars of the ...
