Default New Daytona Coupe Book

I just saw that there is a new Daytona Coupe book and Pete Brock is selling 100 of a special edition signed plaque version.

Thanks, 1nt:

Ordered one Sunday evening! Looking forward to getting it. Maybe one day, I'll trade up to a Coupe. I really appreciate the history of those cars, and what Brock and Shelby did with them.

Bill

He used to come every Saturday to the Vegas Cars and Coffee (I stopped going a few years ago, he still may). There were a few people that knew who he was but by and large he was just a guy with a Coupe that bore his name (the Brock Coupe is different from the Superformance (now Shelby CSX9000) series cars and he continues to build a few). For those of us that knew him he always had stories.

I ordered mine on the 26th and received it today. I got #094 plus Pete autographed the following page. The receipt was autographed also thanking me for the purchase. By the way, very nice book with a s**t load of pictures.

Missed this one, dang it! I have a signed copy of the "Cobra Daytona Coupe CSX 2601" book that was done for the Mecum auction of 2601. I also got it signed by a bunch of the other Shelby crew at one of the fundraisers. One of my favorite Shelby memorabilia.

So Pete drives a coupe around? Is it a replica, if so which one?

I just ordered a copy (not signed) on Amazon. I am more interested in the content than the autographs.

Got mine on Amazon also, without signature. I have Pete's signature on a BRE hat and also his Corvette book. Really nice guy.

Pete's car is a "Brock Coupe". He has his own variant that is produced by, you guessed it, Hi-Tech. It's different from the Superformance (now Shelby CSX9000).

Of most important trivia is that he has a LS3 engine in it.

Well it is hard to miss with an LS motor.

I got my signed copy today, #97 of 100 offered, thanks to being given a heads up here! I just spent an hour looking at pictures and just reading captions. I'm about 1/5 through it on that basis. I plan to come back and read it all.

I got #97 the other day. Am buried in it. A huge resource with a massive amount of information and pictures. I love the story of the Daytona coupe. Peter being so young and relatively inexperienced, yet his genius shone through!

I don't understand, frankly why the coupes aren't worth more than a GTO. They beat it back in the day!

I got number 91 a few days ago. It’s a nice big book with lots of pictures. I read the first couple chapters last night and it is well written too. Hopefully I will learn something new.

Just got mine, too late for the signed copy but pre-ordered it from Amazon and got it for $60 with shipping and tax so I am happy with that. Going to do a slow read at night, as I have to stat getting the car ready for this years race season now that it is starting to get warmer.
