"It's amazing to get a firsthand account of the actual happenings in the Corvette's history. I mean, when a guy sitting in your living room watches the video of the unveiling of the '53 Corvette at the New York Motorama and says, `I was there. Look right over there on the TV. That's where I was standing,' I realize he's been involved with Corvettes since Day One. For me, it doesn't get any better than that."
