Edward Glazer has fond memories of Corvettes dating back decades.
Now he and his wife Shari have made a generous donation to the new National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park, which will feature the Edward and Shari Glazer Vehicle Dynamics Area when the facility opens on Aug. 28 as part of the Museum’s 20th Anniversary Celebration and 5th National Corvette Caravan.
“One of the best memories I had with my father was going with him to pick up his first new Corvette back in 1984. That’s really when my love for the car began,” Glazer said. “I’ve been fortunate to own many Corvettes since then and have taken delivery of a couple of them at the Museum. It’s an incredible experience for anyone buying a Corvette.”
Motorsports Park General Manager Mitch Wright says that the Glazers’ donation is typical of the way Corvette enthusiasts across the nation have supported the Museum since it was just a dream.
“For several years, the fundraising for the Motorsports Park was a grassroots effort,” Wright said. “Nearly 200 Corvette enthusiasts and clubs stepped up, contributing funds towards purchasing acres of land to not only get the project off the ground, but to show potential sponsors the kind of support that existed for the track. Ed’s contribution is a big boost to our on-going fundraising efforts.”
Glazer says he hopes lots of fathers and sons or daughters will have a chance to create their own Corvette memories at the Park or at the Museum, the way he did with his own father.
The Los Angeles man is no stranger to Corvettes, having taken delivery of a 1999 Light Pewter Corvette coupe in September 1998, then winning a 2008 Black Z06 Corvette in a Museum raffle and took delivery in April that year.
The Glazer Vehicle Dynamics Area will see lots of use, including high performance drivers’ education, recreational racing, teen driver safety training, emergency vehicle drivers’ training, corporate hospitality events, manufacturer testing, and a resource for engineering, math, and science disciplines.
