Dave McLellan, retired Corvette Chief Engineer and author of a book on the Corvette, is setting up a web site in order to start a podcast about Corvette. He expects the site and the first podcast episodes to be on line for a February 1st, 2008 launch. With his almost two decade experience as Corvette Chief Engineer and then Engineering Director and his time spent with his predecessor Zora Arkus-Duntov he has a myriad of stories to tell that will be of interest to a Corvette audience. Some of these stories he told in his book, “Corvette From the Inside” but many of them will be new.
Dave will also discuss the newest Corvettes and their performance variants. He also plans to draw on Corvette engineers past and present, letting them tell about their contributions to this legendary brand.
