The National Corvette Museum Hall of Fame is full of people who have made major contributions to the Corvette itself and the Corvette community, but there’s someone who deserves to be inducted that surprisingly hasn’t.
As Corvette Blogger points out, fellow Corvette enthusiast Darwin Ludi has been campaigning for Peter Brock, co-designer of the 1959 Corvette Stingray racer, to be inducted into the NCM Hall of Fame. Brock joined General Motors design when he was just 19 and worked alongside Bill Mitchell and Larry Shinoda on the Stingray racer, which would later inspiredthe production 1963 Corvette Sting Ray.
Ludi believes Brock should not be overlooked for his contributions to the Corvette, and he’s not alone. Corvette Blogger points out that Ed Welburn, General Motors current Vice President of Global Design, has recognized Brocks obvious accomplishments as a designer.
“I can’t thank Peter Brock enough for his contributions to the design of those initial Sting Rays that still stir the soul of automotive enthusiasts to this day,” Welburn said in Brock’s book, ‘Corvette Sting Ray the Genesis of an American Icon.’
To help get Brock inducted, download Ludi’s pre-written letter via Corvette Blogger, sign it and mail it to him at 953 Paseo La Cresta, Chula Vista, CA. You can also email the letter to him at [email protected]. You can count on GM Authority’s letter, Darwin.
