Automobile Quarterly was a hardbound, advertising-free periodical publication which focuses on cars. The publication has been well known for quality writing and photography about automobiles, personalities and related subjects. The magazine started in Spring 1962 with the sub-title "The Connoisseur's Magazine of Motoring Today, Yesterday, and Tomorrow" or in the words of the founder-"a cross between The New Yorker and Encyclopædia Britannica in the world of auto mania".

I thought it would be interesting to have a book of ads for the Corvette. A quick search yielded this book, so I bought it.

After the introduction came year-by-year black & white copies of ads, each group beginning with a half page description for that model year. Some model years had quite a few ads - other years had only one ad for the whole year. There were also a few color reproductions in the book. As the title implies, only the C1, C2 and C3 are covered to the largest extent.

The ads appeared in car magazines, sports magazines, car show programs and other sources.

There was quite a range of ad styles over the years. Some ads, specially in the early years, were lofty prose describing the feeling and exhilaration of driving a 'Vette with little actual information about the car. Later years capitalized on specific features of the car without the nebulous emotional issues.

Many of the ads covered much of the entire Chevy line, with the Corvette included. This was useful to understand how the Corvette was presented among the other Chevrolets in the model year described.

The only problem I had with the book was that there was a lot of "white space" on each page that could have been filled better by utilizing larger reproductions of the ads. Seriously, I actually had to use a magnifying glass to read some of the ad copy.

Some readers will read all the ads for a good portion of the book, and then just start scanning the pictures and headlines. I attempted to read every word of every ad - a challenge, but not impossible.

Though the dust jacket is a great image of a red C2 over the American flag with CORVETTE! in capital letters, the jacketless book is beautiful with a red leather appearance and gold lettering.

All in all, I'd say the book was a good way to appreciate how GM/Chevy presented the car over the covered years.
