Washington Times Smartly written and extensively researched....Readers get to see a world few will ever know.

Joe Collins Booklist A TRUE LABOR OF LOVE....Chevy and Corvette lovers and especially sports-car enthusiasts will lap up this first-ever behind-the-scenes look at GM.

Ken Gross Automotive Industries That Schefter persisted with the story is as much a tribute to crack journalism as the latest 'Vette is to classic sports cars.
