5.0 out of 5 stars Corvette Sting Ray:Genesis of an American Icon Book.By Peter Brock., September 5, 2013
Corvette Sting Ray:Genesis of an American Icon Is a Must Read and Must Have for Any Corvette Fan and Fan of design. Peter Brock who is Known for Many Great designs Among them Cobra Daytona Coupe and My Favorite What would become the Sting Ray Corvette.It tells the Story under Harley Earl and Bill Mitchell of what was to become a Legendary car,with some neat Photos I have not seen before(Having Every Corvette Book myself.)This elegant hardcover and Beautiful Slipcase which compliments it along with the stellar photography,period archive photos and Well Written insight of a Designer and Legend. Now that the 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray is coming and the Stingray name returning,this Book is a must to have in your library covering everything from the ideas,inception to the Racing the 1959 Stingray(Mitchell Stingray Racer) and back to current Show Configuration(Current). The Men involved Along with Brock,Shinoda,Duntov,Mitchell amongst others this is a Insider's account and one Pleasant Read.I Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corvette! Sports Car of America(Hardcover,1959 Sting Ray Racer Concept on Cover.1980 book,No Index.), August 8, 2013
Corvette! Sports Car of America(Hardcover,1959 Sting Ray Racer Concept on Cover.1980 book,No Index.)Over 200 pages, Color Photos but Mainly Black and white.

Michael(Mike)Antonick(Author of California' Screamin' Corvette Racing book,The Corvette Black Book Series and 1984-96 C4 BOOK).along with other contributors did a good job putting together this small yet lengthy book which has the Beautiful 1959 Sting Ray Mitchell Racer/Concept on the cover.(There is also a Slipcase version with no Sting Ray on Cover.)The only faults I find is the Author's False Assumption which seemed at the time to him to make sense. That one day there would be No Internal Combustion engine and the Lack Of Gasoline also mention of "Fouling"(Epa-esque/environmentalist talk to me.) I don't know what his intentions or thoughts were at the time(he mentions LBJ in the C4 Corvette book of his.)But that's the only sour part for me of this book.The book is from 1980 and Covers up to the 1980 Cars No 1981. It is odd the way it's put together,kind of a Magazine which was common for the author but in a book format.Chapters on John Z Delorean(This was Before his problems with the Law.)and The Delorean car and his History with GM and Interview with him.My Favorite Chapter are the "Picks" The Cars that were picked for their own Chapters such as the 1964 Corvette XP-819 Concept car and the 1967 Goodwood Green L-88 and Bill Mitchell's Section and His Interview and thoughts on styling which ring true on How Ugly Modern Styling has become.Great book if can it be found for cheap I recommend buying it cheap like I did(I lucked out on a good condition-very good one.)and enjoy reading it,but not your typical Corvette book as far as a Straight History which is covered in other books and the author's other books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seven Psychopaths,Good Cast Except Tom Waits.Walken Is Great,Big Letdown., July 13, 2013
Sam Rockwell,Christopher Walken,Colin Farrell you would think with such a cast the movie would be Great?It's not,it has it's moments the problem lays with it does not know what it wants to be.It's one Big Nihilist Turdsandwich and if it isn't An Burned Half of a American Flag or Someone dressed like a Priest(Why wasn't any muslims or Jewish Or Protestants offended? Just Quakers and Catholics easy picking huh?I guess Hollywood knows where to stop and on top of that British Funded by the Lottery? Only to be insulted "Gray" Like England? The British should be outraged.Although The Irish Jokes are good yet tiresome.)Walken is the best and the HomoComments are Hilarious at least others are offended as well not to mention Peaceful people and hippies. Although the Vietnam angle is offensive and pointless,the Whole movie just like my review has no order and is all over the place.If you like movies that don't make any sense except leftist drivel(Those Communists? no It was before them how they tortured in Cuba. Ha! Leftists live in their own Sad world,Noam Chomsky(Chumpsky) Reference.)then this is for you sailor.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Stand.The Star of this Movie is The Corvette ZR1., June 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Last Stand (DVD)
The only reason I anticipated this Movie was because of it's Main Star(I am not a Fan of Arnold,I used to be but just his movies then Politically He Became Soft.and He did something disgusting which despite my Distaste and disgust with The Kennedy Family,I found wrong what he did.Did he do good in his role in this Movie Yes,Did he make a Good Comeback I will leave to so-called Critics.)The Main Star is the ZR1 Corvette In Cyber Grey Metallic,With Dark Wheels(No Chrome)Sinister,Dark yet Beautiful.Although The Co-star Would be a Camaro ZL1 Anyone who has a Soul(Meaning that likes Cars)Knows the 'Vette stole the Show.I am disappointed that this is not available as a Dvd+Blu-Ray Combo(Hit and Run does,another Movie with a Vette(Grand Sport) in it,briefly but this movie is better.)and Disappointed that it did tank at the box office(perhaps due to scandal,it could have been worse,he could have been Ted Kennedy.)And was Beaten by Mediocre movies.The Action is NOT Missing in this movie,the Plot is interesting and Again the Star Is throughout the movie.While this seems "Blasphemy" to Film connoisseurs a actor being trumped by a Mechanical Souless(to Whom?)Object I find it one of the Best if Not the Best Corvette Movies so Far(This side of Corvette Summer and 1978's Stingray)And Perhaps one of the best Gearhead flicks(except the slight at the end regarding a ProImmigration Stance Which I firmly Disagree with,immigrate here Legally.) with action to pack and a Chase that you don't have to wait for until the end like Bullitt.(A Semi truck-DumpTruck with Sleeper Looks to me Chevy Bison,Since most Vehicles are GM Supplied or Could be the Similar but less Rare GMC General)The Actors are good in the movie,Knoxville is funny,Guzman is great and his funny face makes the movie easier.Forest Whitaker as usual his schtick(typecasted sadly)as the Law moves the movie along just fine.If your not a Corvette Guy,Camaro Guy or Chevy Fan or A Gearhead there was no point reading my review nor bothering to validate it or watch the flick.If your not into Action Movies then it's not for you,If what everything I describe describes you and what your passion is then Watch The Last Stand and The special features behind the making as well as the making of Famous scene which Is Intense and some deleted and Extended scenes(There is no audio commentary the Cars talk for themselves.)make it worth buying,see it first if you wish then decide if it's right for you.The Movie gets Five Stars not for any Tearjerking tissue using acting but for it's Sheer mayhem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corvette 60th Anniversary Book(Hardcover,Publications International 2013 With 2013 427 Roadster Corvette on Cover)Great Book!, June 5, 2013
Corvette 60th Anniversary Book(Hardcover,Publications International 2013 With 2013 427 Roadster Corvette on Cover)Great Book!If your an Corvette Fan like I am and you need a new Updated and Beautifully illustrated book with approx. over 1,000 Pictures in color and black and white with 464 Pages that covers up to 2013 Corvettes(Last Year,the 60th Anniversary)and includes the Beautiful 427 Roadster(60th Anniversary)Corvette which is on the cover of the book itself.Racing is Covered from the Early life of the 'Vette(50's)to the Corvette DP(Daytona Prototype)Race cars of now and the C6.R.(No details of upcoming C7 since it went to press prior,but it is mentioned and speculated and the Stingray/Transformers concept is included.)The book is well-written,and has been Extremely updated from the 2007 book(yellow Z06-logo on cover,heavy hardcover "Corvette Sportscar Supercar" and the Smaller Hardcover Companion)The only thing I don't like is the mention of being freed from the "Constrictive Fifities" and into the Sixties.(Ugh) but other than that,the book covers much ground that has been needed in a Corvette book of lately and the Grand Sports(1960s Original)and the 2010-2013 Versions,along with 427 Edition(Cooksey)Corvette,Pace Cars and other Limited Editions.This book is no Lightweight(neither in the literal written sense or picture-wise or in Weight).Bottom Line,an Must-add to A Corvette Library.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Greater Glory:The Story of Cristiada., May 15, 2013
One of the most inspiring and beautiful Movies I have had the pleasure of seeing in an long time,I was lucky to see it on Netflix I will add it Physically to my collection soon.This is an Must Watch for Catholics as The Church keeps being persecuted throughout time yet she still stands strong and will continue after over 2,000+Years it will be around Forever.Viva Cristo El Rey!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hit&Run(on Netflix Instant,will Buy it now)Corvette Grand Sport-5 stars for that 2 stars for the movie., May 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Well I saw the Movie Hit & Run(2012)on Netflix Instantly streaming and Will get the blu-Ray/Dvd Combo soon,I Enjoyed the Movie except the abortion comment(daterape)and druguse(ugh) and The part of "civilunions"(ugh),it was an good movie not because of it's artistic value(none) nor because it was Very Funny(Slightly) nor did it make sense but it's an Car Chase movie. The Corvette is in there,an Grand Sport for an little bit that was stolen,the Basically Main car though sadly is an Ford. An Continental,An Lincoln Continental 4door.(700hp Engine)The Corvette Chase involves an Caddy Wagon that keeps up(CTS-V red real baaaad and the GS sadly has no Fenderstripes/Hashmarks just Gray.)and An Dunebuggy(BioDiesel is mentioned? Whocares about BioDiesel?)I think it will appeal to use Gearheads instead.My only compliant is the movie should have made more sense a bit more funnier,and the plot not as slow and of course the 2010(2010-2013 Style are the Same)Grand Sport Corvette Should be the Star not the Lincoln and it should have Fender Stripes(Hash Marks). An Must watch for Corvette Fans and Gearheads.Note I did buy it,there is no Audio Commentary or much special features just two minute Featurettes(3) of them.no making of,so disappointed in that regard but I like it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Cool, April 29, 2013
This review is from: Johnny Cool (Amazon Instant Video)
An Decent Mob Film although not one of the best,Pretty violent for it's time With Elizabeth Montgomery other than being an Blonde and Great Acting on her part as "Dare Guiness",An Telly Savalas with Hair(Sort of,Ring/around.) and Henry Silva whom for some reason I've never liked just has one of those faces but plays an Good Bad Guy,I like the plot although I hate the end not because I didn't Think the New Johnny(see the movie)Didn't have it coming but because what about the Other Johnny?I hate the start of the movie,the whole Bandit thing with Silva/Bearded(I hate Beards and CommieHobos)Fighting the "Fascisti" (I.e. Mussolini an Anarchist turned later Socialist despite assertions he was an Rightwinger like other fascists supposedely-all baloney as they are all statists,an Commie by an Different name.)Sammy Davis has an Minor role as well,Nice Locations and good action,It is worth watching.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Gun Runners, April 29, 2013
This review is from: The Gun Runners (DVD)
Didn't really cared for this one or anything that Castroite DrunkardCommie/SovietSpy Hemmingway wrote or had movies based off his dumb pointless jibber-jabber drunk books.The Gun Runners Movie is Slow-paced and boring and this time takes place before or around the so-called "Revolution"(The Movie is from 1958 so based then.)As Usual couldn't get an Decent Cuban to portray an Cuban and as Usual an American is the Villain or an "Foreginer" That's coming to take from Cuba that's how I read off of it,Although The Rummy I noticed he was in an Route 66 Episode don't know who the others are.Saw it On Netflix,Wouldn't go out of my way for it.
