Sam Smith, Executive Editor of Road & Track, and Jeff Sabatini, Features Editor of Car and Driver, host SiriusXM Car Show Radio, providing an insiders’ look at the 2014 North American International Car Show in Detroit.
Smith and Sabatini had the chance to sit down with legendary car designer Peter Brock about his role in designing the Corvette Sting Ray. One of the auto industry’s legendary figures, Brock, now 77, joined GM at age 19, becoming its youngest designer ever. A sketch he pinned to his office wall became the first Corvette Sting Ray, the split-window fastback model introduced in 1963. Brock went on to work with another automotive giant, Carroll Shelby, and to design one of the greatest American race cars ever, the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe, which was produced in 1964 and 1965.
Joel Piaskowski, exterior design director of the Ford Mustang also spoke with Smith and Sabatini about the 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang redesign.
