Corvette Chief David McLellan
I found Mr McLellan's Podcast to be very interesting. His soft spoken presentation, in an unhurried informative way gives insight to a subject that is near and dear to my heart. If you have any interest in Corvettes, either past or present don't hesitate to give a listen.
Fangio, Moss, Fitch, Taruffi, and Arkus-Duntov at Sebring '57 on my iPod! Incredible! Thanks, Dave.
I was gonna say "The Cadillac of Podcasts" but this is much better......it is the CORVETTE of Podcasts! Dave is very informative, and easy to listen to. It is also quite and experience listening to a living legend. Like listening to history, while getting excited about the future. Dave, thank you so much for putting out this podcast and your great website! I shall tell others!
