Great GM Designer Tom Peters Is On Corvette Today Podcast

Meet Tom Peters…Exterior Design Director for the C5, C6, C7 and C8! Your host, Steve Garrett, introduces you to the man who designed the C5, C6, C7 and C8 Corvettes, Tom Peters! https://anchor.fm/steve-garrett/epis...orvette-etdtic
Tom talks about his early years when he first discovered Corvette, his path to a California design school, how he got his GM scholarship as a sophomore in college (when they were only given to junior and seniors) and all through his 35 years at GM. Tom gives you the inside scoop on how they introduced the C5 Corvette at a reserve Air Force base and the competition thereof.  He also recalls the story of how Global Design Vice President, Ed Welborn, gave his team the OK to finally call the C7 Corvette a "Stingray".  Then Tom recalls his induction into the Corvette Hall of Fame.

    To the rest of the forum, Steven is being very understated about his beauty. I call it the “Carbon Fiber Edition,” Looks a lot like GM said to a potential CF supplier, show us everything you could potentially make for a C7. Absolutely gorgeous.

          Hi Steven and welcome aboard. "A couple of light mods" he says about his Z51 Stingray. It's the Carbon Fiber edition!

                  Steven, I'm new to this forum also, but if you have some pics, post them. I like the carbon edition color and may have sought that out if it was available when I did my C7 purchase. Just don't like Carbon 65 graphic on the sides.

                      Steve, nice Z51. I thought you had the Carbon 65 Edition based on earlier comments. Where did you get the Z51 badging in front of your rear tires? I've not seen them.

                        FE, I have a Carbon Fiber Edition Z51 Stingray before GM even thought about making one. But all the Carbon Fiber additions to my Corvette kind of put the Carbon 65 Edition to shame......

                        The Z51 badging came from Ebay:
