Petersen Automotive Museum to Celebrate Corvette's 60th Anniversary

Corvettes continue to be honored as America’s Sports Car celebrates its 60th anniversary with the 2013 model, with an exciting seventh generation just around the corner, too.

Petersen Automotive Museum is joining right in, with big plans to recognize the Corvette next year, too.

First of all, 20 historic Corvettes and Corvette concept cars will be on display at the Petersen museum from Feb. 27 through March 31, 2013. But that’s not all.

On Friday, March 1, several special events are planned. A Corvette Values Seminar is set from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon when you can find out what your pride and joy is worth and what it may be worth in the coming years. Cost is $25.

From 2 to 3:30 p.m., several key figures from Corvette racing history will discuss the car’s proud racing heritage.

And beginning at 6 p.m., 350 lucky folks will mingle with some of the biggest names in Corvette history for cocktails, dinner, memorabilia auction, and a panel discussion. Tickets are $125 each, and a sell-out is expected.

The excitement continues on Saturday ,March 2 when 500 Corvettes will fill the Petersen Parking Structure from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Register early to guarantee yourself a spot. Spectator admission to Corvette Day is included with Petersen Automotive Museum admission.

Also that day from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon, a Corvette Restoration Seminar will be held where you can learn restoration tips and techniques from the pros for the ticket price of $25.

All Corvette Day proceeds benefit the educational programming at the Petersen Automotive Museum Foundation. Visit www.corvetteday.org for more information. Sponsors of the event include Mid America Motorworks, Hagerty Classic Car Insurance, Fender, Corvette Mike and Intercity auto shippers.
