ZoraArkusDuntov_1500.jpg

Zora Arkus-Duntov is a name that nearly brings a tear to any true Corvette fan. He is considered by many to be the father of the modern performance Corvette that we know, love, and adore. If weren't for Zora, the V8 would have been shoehorned into the Corvette many years later, if at all, and no one would be able to say that they owned a Corvette Grand Sport. We owe a lot to this man.

With the idea that his name could be further immortalized in chrome on the side of a forthcoming Corvette, my heart is a flutter. A fitting tribute to a man that got our hearts racing and our blood pumping!

Zora made it possible for the Corvette to be what it is today, and what it can be in the future.

For,those who do not know his early history, he was a fantastic race car driver, racing at the 24 Heures de Mans. His wife Ellie, also a race car driver, in fact how they met. Talk about a marriage of love and respect.

Really liking "ZoRa1." Clever thinking Ben!
