I purchased a 1960 Corvette with the intent of rebuilding the car. By the time I was done, I had taken a car that was ok at 10 feet and turned it into something spectacular. In 2008 the car was in many car Shows through out the summer. There were 3 highlights to me. First the Cleveland Autorama which provided motivation for getting the car completed. The car won its category at the show. Second the Car show at Corvettes @ Corsa (exhaust) where it won Mayors Choice. Finally, having the car selected for Chips Choice at Corvettes at Carlisle was the topping on the cake.

Finally, having the car show up in 4 different magazines was just a big plus. Vette magazine ran a 3 page article on the car along with many photographs. Corvette Fever ran a 5 page feature article on the car along with many photos. Super Chevy had a photo and Vette Vues Magazine ran several photos with a short "blurb".

I never intended to build a car that was this quality of a build but it just turned out that way. The book chronicles the order in which things were getting done and the people and parts necessary to accomplish the build

thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, what you didnt see in the two books you saw first was the rest of the book. Realize I made these books for me and my family. The book is in chronological order of the trip. For both Africa and Galapagos Island we were in a city at the start of the trip. It is too bad that the preview is limited to 15 get a chance to see all the photos.

I originally came across your profile through a search for some wildlife books. I looked at "Photos out of Africa" and then your "Galapagos" book and i was left with the same feeling - sometimes less is more!

But then i saw the vette and clicked on the cover and boy was i surprised.

The book is filled with much better photography simply because the photographer has a better connection with the subject and obviously had more time to explore it. You obviously love this car and it really shows in your photos.

Still, i think you could have used fewer images, but this is definitely a great little book even for those from abroad who have never seen or witnessed the hobby of rebuilding.

Red hot is your best book so far in my eyes!
