Here is the “Director’s Cut” of the video played during Peter Brock’s induction into the Corvette Hall of Fame last week.
Peter’s reaction upon seeing the video: “I expected the clips of myself recounting some aspects, but what really broke me up were the comments by my peers. Nothing is more strongly valued or appreciated than positive recognition by those who really KNOW the automotive design business. Having Kirk Binnion recognize the lines of the XP87 as the origin of what he has done with the C7 was truly wonderful. It made my evening and the whole HOF induction so much more than I ever expected.”
Special thanks to Bob Bubnis who created the video, pulling together the interviewees and materials such as Brock’s sketches. Featured speakers are (in order of appearance): Kirk Bennion, Corvette Exterior Design Manager; John Manoogian II, ex-GM Exterior Designer and College of Creative Studies; Ed Welburn, ex-VP of Global Design GM; Doug Feehan, Corvette Racing Program Director.
In conjunction with Autoweek’s article on the Hino Samurai Peter Brock designed in 1967, titled “American Samurai: Revisiting the legend of Peter Brock’s unfulfilled racing masterpiece”. Some industrious readers have even found that we offer a 1:43rd scale die-cast model of this striking car. It’s available here.

We wanted to share a poster that celebrates all of the designs Peter has created over the years. Artist Telly Sahara has captured the cars Peter has designed, starting in 1959 with the Corvette Sting Ray racer. He then caps off the piece with the BRE Datsun team cars from the late ’60s and early ’70s. Each car is titled with its name and the year it was designed/built.
This 22″x28″ poster is $10 off until February 1, then it will go back to it’s original price of $29.95. Go here to place your order and use the coupon code: “Designs2017” at checkout.
Coming into the new year, we’ve decided to start things off with a bang! We’ll be having different specials cycling through each month to give everyone the opportunity to get a great deal.
For the next two weeks, we’ve chosen one of our favorite 24″x36″ posters, that has so much history in a single image.
In 2015 the Goodwood Revival pulled off the impossible, bringing together all six original Daytona Cobra Coupes (the first time in history all 6 cars have been together), along with their designer, Peter Brock.
This special will expire on January 19, 2017 and go back to its original price of $35.00. Go here to place your order and use the coupon code: “Goodwood2015” at checkout.
Through December 31st, 2016, or until they last, we are going to offer reprints of Brock’s sketch here that he drew on November 22, 1957 that GM Design VP Bill Mitchell picked off the wall as the direction for what would become the 1959 Stingray Racer and the 1963 production Corvette Sting Ray.
We’ve been fairly protective of this historic sketch but we’re going to make a short-term, limited exception in honor of the great honor of Peter being inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame!
