  • Tadge Juechter - The Corvette's 5th Chief Engineer (article)

    From Super Chevy:

    All five Corvette chief engineers contributed mightily and in their own unique ways. But only Tadge Juechter has the distinction of having done hard engineering on five generations of Corvettes. When Juechter went to work in 1993 as Chief Engineer Dave Hill's right-hand-man, there were two objectives: keep the then-current C4 fresh and interesting and design and develop the most revolutionary Corvette to date, the C5. After Hill's retirement, Tom Wallace was Vehicle Line Engineer (VLE) and Chief Engineer for the Corvette. Wallace accessed that because of Juechter's 15 years of experience, he was the right man for the chief engineer position. Wallace stayed on as VLE and eventually took an early retirement offer.

    Thanks meyerweb. It is a really good historical article. When I first met Tadge, he was Dave Hill’s assistant, and worked tirelessly in the background — where he was and is most comfortable even today. Even at this year’s Bash, while I was talking with him 1-to-1 on Saturday while we were waiting for the C8 to show up at NCM, my commending him for his humor at the Bash’s two-day earlier C8 intro presentation that he and Harlan and Kirk did, Tadge totally agreed that he is happiest working with his team in the shadows solving engineering/design matters.
