OVERVIEW Corvette Quarterly was the official magazine of Corvette owners and was published by General Motors from Troy, Michigan.
The publisher and editor was Jerry Burton, Mr. Burton is a historian and researcher, and he wrote performance ads for GM and several Corvette books.
The magazine focused on all aspects of Corvettes, including old and new versions, nostalgia and a big dose of historical information. It was a well
produced title with quality content. Many readers in the day considered it one of the best three dedicated Corvette publications.
The print version of the magazine ended in 2008 with the U.S. economic downturn that almost closed General Motors. The magazine had lost its impact a year
or two before the end, and readers at the time thought the content contained too much "fluff".
The publisher provided net paid circulation data to The Standard Periodical Directory from 1990
through 2005 (the most recent date for which we have data). Except for the years with missing data, annual print issues ranged from 460,000 to 500,000
for each year reported.
Eightly four issues were printed from Spring, 1988 through Winter, 2008. All cover images are complete.
