240z road of champions shirt

NEW 240Z Road of Champions Shirt

Just like our 510 shirt, We’ve been working on this concept for a while… how to honor the Japanese and American heritage of the BRE Datsuns. We couldn’t be happier with our latest shirt, “The Road of Champions” featuring both the American and Japanese flags with their paths leading to the crowd-pleasing Championship BRE Datsun 240Z.

As summer approaches, we’ve gotten requests for a lighter weight t-shirt than our normal beefy-Ts. For this shirt we chose a dark gray Hane’s Nano t-shirt. It’s lightweight, soft and made of a light cotton jersey that feels great. This shirt is pre-shrunk but has a slimmer fit than the beefy-Ts, so size up if you want a more relaxed and roomier fit.

This discount is applicable on all variations of the book; soft cover, hard cover, and hard cover with slipcase. Please use coupon code halloffame2017 upon checkout to receive the 20% discount. This offer is valid through the end of the day, October 7, 2017.

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.
