by Keith Cornett on January 16, 2010

The Bondurant School of High Performance Driving has been an advertiser on this blog for well over a year now and I say with conviction that there’s not a better group of people to work with. Bob and his team have made many many contributions to the Corvette community. So when we heard through the grapevine last night that one of their employees was hospitalized on Christmas Eve with severe medical problems, we wanted to spread the word. If you can spare any kind of assistance then read on.

Celebrating Zora's 100th Birthday

Zora Arkus-Duntov was born 100 years ago Christmas Day. Known affectionately by enthusiasts as the “Godfather of the Corvette”, he is credited with turning around the floundering program by upgrading the Corvette’s power and handling and masterfully creating a balance of performance and value that is still present today. Although he retired from GM in 1975 after 22 years of service, he never left the hearts of the community and was active until his passing in 1996. Today, his ashes and those of his wife Elfi are in a special memorial at the National Corvette Museum.

I don’t refer to many Corvettes as “wicked” but I was flipping through eBay’s Corvette listings tonight and this serious-looking 1963 Corvette Grand Sport recreation caught my eye. Painted Silver with a Black stripe, the Grand Sport’s coupe body just rocks. Under the hood rocks too with a Chevrolet 464 crate engine mated to a 6-speed transmission.
