YENKO: The Man, The Machines, The Legend follows the life of Don Yenko from birth to his untimely passing, and offers an in-depth look into the man behind the legendary cars – starting with the Stinger Corvairs and finishing with the turbocharged Camaros and Vegas, with a look at work done Novas and Chevelles.

While these distinctive cars will always be the stars, the story of how they came to be is fascinating, and author Bob McClurg interviewed Yenko family members, former employees, family friends, and professional contemporaries to get the complete story behind the legendary Yenko name. This soon-to-be-published paperback edition covers it all, and is a reprint of the best-selling hardback version.
