The Father of Corvette Zora Duntov gives Corvette its performance genes

Zora’s passion for performance flowed from the halls of the engineering department, but his views were not always shared in the board rooms and design studios.

The “Brooklyn-Queens Connecting Highway” was proposed as an express bypass through heavily built industrial, commercial and residential areas,...
