Engine Build and Buyers Tour Combo Option Available

If you are thinking about participating in the Corvette Z06 Engine Build program and Buyers’ Tour, the programs can now be a one-visit experience. “The benefit of the new Engine Build Experience is that your build will be compressed so that you can complete both programs during one visit to Bowling Green instead of having days or even weeks between the two,” said Shane Webb, Delivery Department Manager at the National Corvette Museum.

The new experience and tour is available to anyone ordering a new Z06, regardless of trim level, and is an all-encompassing event over two or three consecutive days. The Engine Build Experience is the combination of two options for a total price tag of $7,500 (RPO PBC - $5,000 and RPO PD5 - $2,500) and includes the engine build, buyer’s tour, a photo album of your Corvette’s assembly and dinner with a senior manager from Bowling Green Assembly and a NCM representative. The option is available on sold orders only. Contact your favorite Chevrolet dealer to add this option on to your Corvette Z06 order.

When Corvette Racing is Your Passion

<article> </article>
Automotive racing comes in many forms - NASCAR, IndyCar... but for Rebecca McCarty of Theodore, AL it is the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship that gets her attention. Rebecca is a fan of Corvette Racing, having attended the races at Le Mans and Daytona.
Rebecca's enthusiasm for racing that drew her to support the NCM Motorsports Park by sponsoring an acre. "Corvette Racing is my passion, so I wanted to support Corvette Racing at the NCM Motorsports Park," Rebecca said.
Only five acres remain available for sponsorship through the Acre Program – a campaign that was created to help the National Corvette Museum, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit foundation, purchase the acreage for the NCM Motorsports Park. Acres can be sponsored for a tax deductible contribution of $15,000.

Donors will be listed on a special, permanent engraved wall at the Park. The opportunity to participate ends December 31, 2016 and the wall will be erected in 2017. To inquire about an acre please contact Connie Russell at 270-467-8815 or email connie@corvettemuseum.org.
