Ground-Bound Blue Angel

For Sparky Lersch, owning a Corvette was a dream since high school, and attending the Naval Academy to play football is what helped him realize his dream.

Flash forward decades, and those fond memories of Corvette ownership is what made Sparky realize that his final bucket list item was to again own a Corvette. You're not going to want to skip reading this touching Corvette story...

Michelin Bash Next Week!

With over 1,300 of your pre-registered for the Michelin NCM Bash next week we're making last minute preparations to guarantee you have an excellent time! Didn't pre-register? No worries! On-site registration will be available when you get here.

We're excited to welcome the following Store Partners who will have vendor booths setup at the event: Adam's Polishes, C-Magic, CarArtWork, Carera Slot Cars, Corsa Performance, Dana Forrester Watercolors, Excel Sportswear, Kim's Gold Dust, Laid Back, Mike's Custom Steering, Second Story Interiors, Southern Car Parts, Titan Lift, Weapon X Motorsports and WindRestrictor.

The Corvette Racing trailer with the #4 C7.R will be here - don't miss out!

And lastly - we've been keeping a secret from you guys... for the past 9 months we've had a project car we've been working on. And the reveal is Saturday at 12:30pm CT in the Conference Center. You'll want to hear the story, and bring some tissues. Believe me, you'll need them.


Living the Dream

We would be willing to bet that the majority of you reading this email have taken your photo in front of our "Living the Dream" banner outside of Victory Lane at the Museum. And now, you could be the owner of that very banner.

Though weathered and faded, the banner represents thousands of R8C delivery Corvettes who have driven past it, stopping for photos, thousands of visitors taking family pictures and selfies, and thousands of Corvette memories. Displayed from Spring 2013 to Spring 2017, the 9' 2" x 21' piece is up for auction on our eBay account, with 100% of the proceeds going back to support YOUR Museum.

Only $10 to WIN a Corvette!
