- Harley Earle, GM’s first VP of Design who had the vision to invent the Corvette;
- Ed Cole, whose life long engineering expertise with Chevrolet and GM made the Corvette’s V8 the most successful engine in the history of all motorsport;
- Zora Arkus-Duntov, who had both the experience and vision to define what the Corvette should be and the never ending goal of making constant improvements so that today anyone can enjoy the world’s finest production sports car; and finally, and
- Bill Mitchell. Most importantly, we all have to thank VP of Design, Bill Mitchell, my boss at GM Styling, who risked his career and position within General Motors to proceed secretly with his dream of designing a better, more beautiful Corvette when top management had decreed the Corvette program was to be terminated as a victim of the AMA ban. Without Mitchell’s determination and love for the Corvette none of us would have these great cars today.
