Wil Cooksey shares his life story and career in GM and building Corvettes.
Dateline: 8.29.15 – Yesterday we told you about the 2015 Corvettes at Carlisle show and that Wil Cooksey is one of the special guests for the event. Actually, ever since Wil put on that stunning, explosive burnout display back in 2007, he’s become an almost permanent fixture of the Corvettes at Carlisle show.
On April 5, 2013 I had the pleasure of interviewing Wil Cooksey on my Far Out Radio program. The YouTube version of the program is below.
When I spoke with Wil he was finishing up his autobiography, “No Time To Cry.” The book was released in September 2013. The 440-page book is available at Amazon, CLICK HERE for more details.
This is a “must have” for your Corvette library, along with Jerry Burton’s “Zora Arkus-Duntov – The Legend behind The Corvette”.
Other “must-have” Corvette books include, “Corvette From The Inside: The Development History as Told by Dave McLellan, Corvettes’s Chief Engineer 1975-1992” by Dave McLellan”.
Also, “All Corvettes Are Red: Inside the Rebirth of an American Legend” by James Schefter.
Read the history from the men that were there. Dave Hill, we’re waiting for your book, sir! – Scott
