Born of Russian parents, Zora later moved to Germany, where he started racing. During the war, he escaped to the US to set up a car parts supply firm for the Army, which eventually led to him taking charge of Chevrolet, during the 1950's. He was the father of the Corvette & continued, until just before his death, to attend most events celebrating the car.
