There is an old saying that if you love something, you set it free. Such is the case of Paula Lizotte's 1978 25th Anniversary Edition Corvette. The much-loved member of Paula's family, affectionately referred to as 'Betty,' joined the Museum family this month after Paula made the difficult decision to donate her.
"I started trying to sell her summer of 2015, but no one was serious about buying her. I wanted someone who loves her as much as I love her. I couldn't manage all the expenses of keeping up a classic car properly. She didn't deserve New England where a third of the year is spent in a garage," Paula said.
Though Paula had never been to the National Corvette Museum, it seemed like the best place for her Betty. "I'm giving up a little bit of me. She's gone and I'm sad, but she's gone to be a queen. As sad as I was that she's no longer mine, I'm absolutely thrilled she's yours."

[h=1]GM Corvette Plant Paint Shop Construction Underway[/h]
Db8xIeDgpfa2Wsz9lKXJ--4k1x4ugrmpR6E4iSQmFKNy_vel-PHdosISsrSAtdPJr4HfJG68Qnf5XUX6nnz2iHdAgATT08SUK_2PClw5oBLQe2BHknGIJf3Z7CSb0zooLfuVRA=s0-d-e1-ft
On Monday, the first 55 foot, 6,000 pound beam was put into place in what will be the northeast corner of the new paint shop at the GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant. "The new paint shop is half the size of the Plant, adding a half million square feet to our operations," said Kai Spande, Plant Manager. "This is for the customers. The paint technology used for the Corvette is special. Because we're painting carbon fiber and specialized plastics, all off of the body, that demands processes that will only be used here."
Read more about this, including when Corvettes will be rolling through the new shop, on our website here.
