My L88 Corvette Racing Legends Book is available here.
Corvettes dominated local and international endurance racing back in the 60s and 70s.
My book contains over 500 authentic photos from back in the day. These photos were taken by professionals.
The history of the L88 Corvettes is accurate and contained within my book.

When you need new tires for your Corvette or for your family SUV or Truck, please order them from the Discount Tire via my website. I have a business relationship with the Discount Tire, and any purchases made through this site will help me not only keep this website up for all of you, but it will also help me with more product reviews and future Corvette projects that I plan on posting here on my site.
Attention C5 Corvette owners. The OEM Goodyear F1 GS Tires are available! These are difficult to find. Get your set while you can!
Follow one of the Discount Tire links above and enter your Zip Code to locate your nearest store. It’s best to order your tires online and have them delivered to your nearest store for installation onto your Corvette.
Don’t take the chance of walking into a store for a purchase. They may not be able to get them for a while. Order here first.
Many of the C5 and C6 Corvette models have unique tire sizes which may not be interchangeable from one model year to the next. Most models have their own unique tire size based around the special wheels the car came with from the factory. The 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible is one such model with a very unique and special tire size for its wheels. Using the wrong size tires or the wrong size wheels and tires can throw off your alignment.
When I first created Corvette Legends back in 1995, I highlighted the older vintage Corvettes. Now the C7 and C8 Corvettes might be more popular than the vintage models!
The Corvette restoration hobby has made some big changes lately. Corvettes are becoming more popular in large organizations like the Good-Guys and the National Street Rod Association. I will still be placing articles on classic models as I have in the past. I might be placing more articles that emphasize restorations and modifications from factory stock. Everything has changed now with the introduction of the mid-engine 2020 Corvette. So you can look forward to seeing more articles and posts on the mid-engine C8 Corvette as well as articles and information about vintage Corvettes here at Corvette Legends.
Care and Preservation: My Favorite Car Care Starter Kit
I have completed many projects in my life. Over the years, I’ve narrowed down my car care product range to a limited number of companies. My Favorite Car Care Starter Kit is from Griot’s Garage. In fact, I only use Griot’s Garage products on all of my cars. You will get the best results with Microfiber Towels when using these products. Yes, I’ve used many of their products over the years. I will be placing online articles about their products, how I used them, and the results that I’ve achieved. Click on the blue links above for more information about my favorite car car starter kit and the microfiber towels.
I’ve been owning Corvettes since the summer of 1976. Even then, I was very critical when inspecting and test driving a Corvette before a purchase. Documentation and service receipts were very important to me as they confirmed the car’s history. The wear and tear of the interior and exterior that was observed could be matched with the claimed mileage on the odometer (if it was working). I also made note of the quality and brand of replacement parts that the owner or previous owners installed on their car.
The brands that the previous owners chose gave me quite a bit of information about the attentiveness and quality of care that they gave their Corvettes. Were these replacement parts high quality or the cheapest items they could find just to get by? To this day, I continue to use these techniques when inspecting cars. Car care articles will be posted here on this site. Many parts are extremely difficult to locate today, especially tires for the C4 and C5 Corvettes!

My Favorite car show: the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals: MCACN. My Display: Corvette Legends Invitational
There is one person who dedicated his last decades of his professional career to the improvement and evolution of the Corvette: Zora
Zora Arkus Duntov was employed by Chevrolet in the mid fifties. He was of European descent. During his years in Europe, many years before working at Chevrolet, he was a well respected automotive engineer, and he understood the extreme importance being a participant in the European Automobile Olympics which was called the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Zora and his wife Elfie, were forced to flee France when the Nazis invaded. They came as Immigrants to the United States, and had no desire to leave America after World War II. At Chevrolet, Zora molded the Corvette from a street cruiser into a well defined racing machine. He understood the advantages of a mid-engine sports car, but unfortunately, when he was forced to retire in January 1975, his dreams of producing a mid-engine Corvette under his reign ended. However, during his years at Chevrolet, he was very successful in creating a factory racing option called L88.
I wrote a book that highly illustrates the racing successes of the L88 Corvette and you can preview some of the pages here.
Corvette clubs have been an essential component of Corvette history since the mid 1950s. Friendships and sharing a common passion for something that is bigger than yourself was a concept that Duntov felt was important for Corvette owners.
I’m a Corvette person. The Clubs that I am affiliated with are in great need of families and members of families who have owned multiple Corvettes in their lifetimes. I’ve always enjoyed conversations when we shared knowledge and experiences about the Corvettes that were owned over the years. This knowledge and experience is irreplaceable! The Corvette Clubs need your help!
My Corvette Clubs section is always undergoing additions, as it is an integral part of owning a Corvette. You can find my constantly evolving club page here. Hopefully, you can find a club close to your home that fits your personality and your needs.
I am constantly updating this site with the most popular and current information that is pertinent and available.
So, in the meantime, bookmark my site and keep coming back for the newest and latest information on how to take care of your car, events near and far, and more!
