Car Collector Magazine, December 2007 "Benford's Corvette
features a nice mix of photography by James Mann, who adds a touch
of elegance and freshness to this subject of Corvette collecting
while Tom knocks out seven chapters that follow the C-Generations
from 1953 to the present day. This book has significantly more text
than the other two, as Tom maintains a running commentary about
design and engineering throughout the chapters, making this a
somewhat more interesting book to read. Mann has managed to hit all
of our favorite photographic cliches and do so in such a way as to
show the best attributes of dashboards, trim, and even engine
compartments. For a little book, Benford has packed a lot of data,
text, and imagery into 192 pages. This one will make a great
stocking stuffer for the Corvette guy or gal in your life."
Cars & Parts, November 2007 "The result is a fast-paced, colorful, encapsulated history of the legendary American icon that is Corvette ... this book will enhance any collection."
