To say this 1954 Corvette owned by Lori and Morey Hale is just a car would be a major understatement. Like many Corvette owners, their C1 Corvette played a major role throughout their lives – from when Morey courted Lori to when they got married in it in Carson City. Now, after a lifetime of memories, the Corvette was offered a new home after Lori donated the car to the National Corvette Museum.
Former Corvette Racing driver Andy Pilgrim is in Bowling Green, KY this weekend for his induction into the National Corvettes Museum’s Corvette Hall of Fame. When he arrived at the Museum, he was greeted by this 427 Convertible that pays tribute to the driver’s service to Corvette.
As production of the C6 Corvette winds down, so are many of the delivery options for buyers of the 2013 Corvette. We already knew that the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green would be suspending public tours of the facility on September 14th. Now we got word that the Buyers Tour and the custom Photo Book options have closed as well.
If you’re looking for something to do July 18th – 22nd then consider the NCM’s Performance Tour III. For a generous donation you and 39 other Corvettes can tour the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, NCM, Warren Tech Center, and the Milford Proving Grounds. Think of this as a Corvettes-only version of the Hot Rod Power Tour.
