There are many aspects to what makes Corvettes unique. Right from the beginning, Corvettes have been lookers. When Zora Arkus-Duntov saw the Corvette for the first time at the 1953 GM Motorama at the Waldorf Astoria, he was quoted as saying, “It was the most beautiful car I had ever seen!” But good looks will only get you so far. After a challenging start, thanks to Duntov and his team, by ‘57 with the introduction of the 283 Fuel Injection option, Chevy’s little fiberglass sports car finally was getting some respect.

From that moment to today, the second most common question Corvette owners get, after, “What year is it?” is “What’s under the hood?” Ah, now we’re getting to to some real red meat. Since the Fuelie his the scene, Chevrolet has treated us to a stream of exciting engines, many of which have achieved legendary status. Over the last 15 years that I have been writing and illustrating my monthly VETTE column, “The Illustrated Corvette Series,” I have created technical illustrations of the most important Corvette engines from the Blue Flame Six to the amazing 638-horsepower LS9 that powers the 205-MPH C6 ZR1.

Last year I created some graphics for each Corvette engine illustration and added the collection of 20 designs to our Zazzle Store. Each design is available on a variety of t-shirts, sweats, coffee mugs, and lots of other nice gift items. So, show your pride for what’s under the hood of your Corvette and WEAR THE POWER!
