Some people surprise their dad with a new tie or shirt, but for Roger Rosenbum it was a 2016 Triple Black Stingray that son Tony surprised him with. Roger, a Flint, MI GM retiree with 38 years of service; and son Tony, a career United States Marine (retired) visited this week taking R8C Museum delivery not only of Roger's Vette, but Tony also picked up his own 2016 Shark Gray Z06.​
"Dad and I have been wrenching on cars our whole lives... I've always loved cars and he passed that down to me. This is my give back," Tony told us.​

The Super Bowl may get just a little more entertaining for Corvette fans, but we need your help to make it happen!​
Michael Brown, a Lifetime Member of the Museum, is a filmmaker from Arlington, TX and a Corvette collector, with 14 models in his personal collection. He has entered the Doritos' Super Bowl commercial competition, with his spot featuring his 1967 Big Block 427. You can view his commercial and "rate" it to help him make it to the top 50. Then, beginning January 5 online voting will open to narrow it to three finalists. Read the full article online here, and watch his commercial here.​
