Synopsis: There is no question that the collectible muscle car market is hot, and there are few cars hotter than those sold with the distinctive Yenko stripes and badges. A wide range of Chevrolet cars received the Yenko treatment, starting with the Stinger Corvairs and finishing with turbocharged Camaros and Vegas. In between these projects, Don Yenko worked his magic on Novas, Chevelles, and of course the legendary first-generation Camaros.
YENKO: The Man, The Machines, The Legend follows the life of Don Yenko from birth to his untimely passing, and offers an in-depth look into the man behind the legendary cars. While the cars will always be the stars, the story of how they came to be is a fascinating one, and author Bob McClurg interviewed Yenko family members, former employees, family friends, and professional contemporaries to get the complete story behind the legendary Yenko name. Never before has the Yenko story been told in such detail and depth first-hand.
In a time when such cars can command million dollar-plus bids, the story behind them swirls with myth and legend. Get the complete and accurate authorized history with YENKO: The Man, The Machines, The Legend and learn the whole truth.
About the Author: Bob McClurg grew up in 1950s southern California, where he was surrounded (and heavily influenced) by early hot rod culture.

Bob's photos have been published in all the major drag racing publications, as well as previous CarTech titles including, Diggers, Funnies, Gassers & Altereds and Fire, Nitro, Rubber, and Smoke.
