At the Corvette Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the National Corvette Museum for the class of 2013, Wil Cooksey, Werner Meier and Johnny O’Connell, each had a video tribute shown with interviews, testimonials and archival footage showcasing their contributions to the Corvette Brand. Each inductee came to the Hall of Fame following a different path but their passion for Corvettes are shared as the videos show.
So if you couldn’t make it to Bowling Green for the ceremony, we have the three videos so you can get know the Class of 2013 a little better.
With more than 30 states in the U.S.A. requiring the use of a front license plate, the C7 Corvette Stingray’s designers set out to give owners a simple, integrated and non-permanent way to meet the requirements of having a plate without the killing the car’s aerodynamics.
At the Labor Day Anniversary Celebration in Bowling Green, there was a Night Race Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray showing the license plate holder on the car.
The National Corvette Museum unveiled two special Hall of Fame Corvette Stingrays for two members of the 2013 HOF class. Former Corvette Racing driver Johnny O’Connell and former Bowling Green Plant Manager Wil Cooksey had their commemorative Corvette Stingray’s revealed at a special ceremony Thursday during the Museum’s 19th annual Labor Day Anniversary celebration.
Knowing that the C6 has reached the end of production is kind of sad, isn’t it?
But we have a way to put a smile back on your face. How would you like to have the honor of owning the last Corvette C6 coupe ever built?
You could be the lucky person who can make that claim if you just happen to buy the winning ticket for the 2013 60th Anniversary Coupe being raffled off as a fundraiser for the National Corvette Museum.
One of the major fundraisers that goes towards the operation of the National Corvette Museum has been their Corvette raffles. Since the end of C6 Corvette production, the NCM has auctioned everything from the final C6 Z06, 3rd to last 427 Convertible and the last C6 Grand Sport Convertible. And this Thursday, they are raffling the VIN #0002 2013 60th Anniversary Corvette Grand Sport Coupe.
But the real news here is that for the raffle held on Friday, August 30th, the winner will receive a Torch Red 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe!

The National Corvette Museum does a lot of good deeds for many groups.
Wednesday, the museum’s executive director, Wendell Strode, received a rare honor on behalf of the opportunities he and the museum provide for volunteers and nonprofits.
Kevin Mays, a member of the board of the Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Service, surprised Strode with a Governor’s Citation for Community Volunteerism and Service.
Our friends at Hartland Auctions are hosting their first ever National Corvette Museum Auction this weekend in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Hartland expects about 300 cars for their inaugural event at the NCM. As we create this wonderful prose there are 50 Corvettes poised to cross the auction block as part of the 2 day docket which runs Saturday and Sunday June 13th and 14th.
With only 300 Corvettes made in the first year of production in 1953, not many of these historic treasures ever cross the auction block in a single year.
But this weekend could be your chance to own one as the 254th Corvette ever made will be up for auction at the first-ever Hartland Auctions sale at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky.
