First Collector Edition Grand Sport Delivered

<article> </article>
At the 2016 Geneva auto show it was announced that Chevrolet would produce a Collector Edition Grand Sport as part of its 2017 model year line up, limited to only 1,000 models. On Friday, October 28 the Museum delivered their first 2017 Collector Edition Grand Sport Corvette to John Mullane of Edwardsville, IL.

John owns a 1996 Grand Sport, and 2010 Grand Sport... and after falling in love with the new Tension Blue color when he first saw it at the Michelin NCM Bash in April he knew he had to have one. He and wife Amy, Lifetime Members of the Museum, were joined by 15 members of his club, LookingGlass Corvette Club of Illinois, to pickup the car.

Check out the full story on our blog here. And if you keep an eye on our Delivery web cams you might catch a glimpse of other Collector Editions!

2017 Z06 Winner Drawn!

Congrats to Joseph Oliver of Onawa, IA - winner of today's raffle drawing for a 2017 Arctic White Z06 Corvette with ticket number 524. We sold 953 of the 1,000 available tickets. Joseph has never owned a Corvette, and never been to the Museum. In fact, he was driving a tractor in traffic when we called to give him the good news! Welcome to the Corvette family, Joseph!

Your next chance to win a Corvette is Thursday, December 1
when we raffle off a 2017 Long Beach Red Corvette Stingray Convertible! Tickets are $100 and the raffle is limited to 1,500 tickets.

Compressing Corvette Fun

<article> </article>
For those who live more than a days drive from Bowling Green, it can be tough to plan a visit on a regular basis. That's why GM has worked hard to offer the opportunity to "compress" the Engine Build Experience and Buyer's Tour so that both programs can be completed in one visit.

The new program is called option PD5, and it was perfect for Dick and Linda Bottis of Fountain Valley, CA. The couple not only participated in the PD5 option, building the Z06 engine on a Tuesday and starting it up on the line Wednesday, but they also picked up their Corvette through the R8C Delivery program. Even better, they were able to time the delivery so that they could attend the Vets 'n Vettes event!
The icing on the cake was that Linda and Dick celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary on November 3.
“We had a great time and met new friends at the Vets ‘n Vettes show,” said Dick. “As for our anniversary… every anniversary is nice when you spend it with your best friend. Linda and I were both very impressed with how the community of Bowling Green honors Veterans.”

Vets 'n Vettes presented by Mobil 1

At the National Corvette Museum we honor the men, women and families of those who serve in our military. For three days each year, in an event presented by Mobil 1 that culminates in the Veterans Day Parade, we pull out the stops to show them how much we appreciate their sacrifice and service. Here is a highlight reel meant to be a souvenir to those who made it, and an inspiration for everyone else to join the celebration in 2017!
