Very Good. Minor shelf wear, slight scratches to wraps, binding tight, pages clean and unmarked. Corvette Restoration: State of the Art is unlike any other auto restoration book. Others resemble shop manuals, but this oe is beautifully printed and bound with 118 illustrations, 81 in descriptive color. Best of all is what's inside. As an example of "state of the art" in Corvette restoration, part of this book revolves around a 4000 hour restoration of a 1965 "big block' Corvette by David Burroughs, the same David Burroughs who conceived and created the Bloomington certifcation system of Corvette concours judging. For Corvette enthusiasts concerned with authenticity, the Bloomington Gold certificate is the most prestigious of honors. Dave's restoration work has shoved "origina" a quantum leap above where it had previously been. Natural Factory Look doesn't mean just correct parts of the right color. It means that if several graduations of chassis black were used, they'll be reproduced in the same subtle graduations. It means that if a part was sprayed such that another part close by was sure to receive overspray, that part will be oversprayed again. It means that if assembly procedures resulted in no paint behind certain screw heads where you'd normally expect paint, the procedure will be duplicate faithfully....It means that when you view a Corvette restored with "state of the art" techniques, you're taking a time trip back to a Chevy dealer's showroom floor. What a trip!
