Corvette Racing to Attend 21st Anniversary Celebration
If you have not yet made plans to attend our 21st Anniversary Celebration you have just over a week left until pre-registration closes!​
New to the event agenda is Corvette Racing's attendance with their big rig offering an additional display for you to check out.​
We have also received confirmation that John Cafaro, Chief Designer of the Fifth Gen Corvette and production Corvette design from 1991 to 1999; and Dave Bolognino, director of GM Design Fabrication, will lead our seminar on the restoration of the 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" and 1992 "One Millionth" Corvette - the two sinkhole Corvettes restored by GM.​
Check out the complete agenda online here.​

Complete Your Corvette Collection
Whether you own an 80s, 90s or newer Corvette, a fun piece of automobilia to own is your car's build sheet. Build sheets are what go down the line with your car as it is being assembled, telling them the options and features of the car. Our Library and Archives offers build sheets for Corvettes produced in Bowling Green since 1981.​
Using this build sheet we are also able to offer reproduction window stickers, another must-have for your car!​
Check out our offerings, along with some unique glass, slate and aluminum printed options on our website here.​

What's In Your Museum?
Like fast cars? Then you'll probably like these three Callaways we have on exhibit in the Museum.
Two are 1987 Corvettes with the B2K option. The option was Callaway's first major Corvette tuning project and while not factory installed, could be ordered through participating Chevrolet dealers. The B2K option came with twin turbos, a manual transmission, 345hp, 465 lb. torque and the top speed for the car was 177.9 MPH. They were fully assembled at the Corvette Plant, then shipped to Callaway Engineering in Old Lyme, CT for the engine and other modifications. The Bright Red B2K was the very first one produced and was donated to the Museum by Mead Briggs. The Dark Red is graciously on loan from Scott Bartels.
The 2003 Z06 Corvette on display was used to develop the Callaway C5 Power Groups, serving as a test mule before the car went into production. Featured in Corvette Enthusiast and Vette Magazine, the car has power group 1, 2 and 3, and it ran an 11.7 at 121 MPH with almost 500 HP. The car was donated by Gary Nichols and you can read more on our blog here.
