September 2019 Issue Preview

This month we have a Special Edition full of photos and details about the new C8 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette Stingray. We cover the C8 Corvette Revel, preliminary specifications, how to pre-order and a whole lot more! We also take a look at the journey to the mid-engine, more history of Zora and a biography of Jim Perkins.  We have features of the 1956 SR-2, as well as Readers’ Corvettes.  Wayne Scraba brings us two tech articles: Making Engine Assembly Easier with a Connecting Rod Vise and Tapered Ring Compressors. Some more great collections to look at in Vette Vues Model Scene, Toy Vues, and the 1998 Corvette Magazine advertisements.  As always, there are advertisers, calendar of events and Corvette classified ads.  It’s another jam-packed issue!
