This is definitely a coffee table book as the size (not small) would indicate. Although the author listing might indicate it was put together by a committee, the info offered is very good. Photos of a full size four seater C2 are offered, proving we are all fortunate that the idea never made it to the showroom. Reasonably priced.

Available in hard cover and paperback, "Corvette Fifty Years" has some of the best 'vette photography you will find anywhere. The race cars are given excellent coverage and here the photos (with David Newhardt) really stand out. The text unfortunately can be uneven when compared to the images.

Title: Corvette Specs: 1984-1996 Models
Author: Mike Antonick
ISBN: 0-933534-51-5
Click here to purchase

Concentrates on the C4 Corvette. Written by Mike Antonick, the author of the famed "Corvette Black Book". It has the same feel and contains the same info, with an emphasis on technical changes. Extensive specifications sheets are offered along with excellent technical explanations. Very thorough and necessary reading for owners or potential owners of C4 Corvettes. All photos are black and white, so this is not a coffee table book. Hopefully Mike will publish editions on the other 'Vette generations.

Great coverage of the mid year Corvettes, including race cars and various prototypes. The Grand Sports chapter is a highlight as are the C1 racing endeavors. Good photography is detracted by the cheap paperback cover; the contents would have been better served with better quality binding and paper
