Our friends at Bloomington Gold have recently announced who will be honored this year as the newest members of The Great Hall. The diverse 2012 list of honorees consists of a racer, a noted restorer, the founder of Corvette Central, and a former Corvette Chief Engineer among others.
Now in its third year, The Great Hall will highlight 10 people and 10 Corvettes annually until 50 people and cars from each category have been recognized. The Great Hall’s intent is to salute the pioneers of our hobby – the people, organizations, and the cars that helped create the phenomenon we know and love today. It’s their passion and drive that helped grow the hobby for all of us. The 2012 Great Hall people / organization honorees are listed below. Click on their names for more information.
