Yenko StingerThe Yenko Stinger was Don Yenko's first attempt at building a series of dealer prepped vehicles for the performance minded driver. Canonsburg, PA is a small town on the outskirts of Pittsburgh and in 1965 was the location of Yenko Chevrolet, which was owned by Don's father, Frank. Don hoped to do with the Corvair, what Carroll Shelby did with the Mustang. The Yenko Stinger was first produced with a fleet of 100 Corvair Corsas that were ordered by Don, with the idea of homologating them for SCCA racing. All 100 cars were delivered to the dealership beginning the first week of December 1965, and were completed the first week of January 1966. Initially the car was built in 4 "Stages", from mild to wild. Total production over a 15 year period was approximately 185 vehicles. Don later went on to build the Yenko Super Camaro, Yenko Duece, Yenko Chevelle, Yenko Super Nova, Yenko Stinger 2 (a Vega), Yenko Turbo Z (Camaro), etc. None of them had the handling of the Stinger (although they were among the quickest vehicles ever produced). He was a driver of great renown in Corvettes, Stingers, Camaros, Novas, Citations, and Hondas in SCCA & IMSA (as well as a great jazz pianist). Don died in a plane crash in March 1987.
