On Friday Afternoon at the National Corvette Museum’s 2012 Bash, Team Corvette members and enthusiasts gathered outside for an up-close look at the new 2013 427 Convertible Edition Corvettes and the new 60th Anniversary package. Leading the presentation was Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter and Product Manager Harlan Charles.
One of the highlights of the NCM Bash at the Corvette Museum is annual seminar that recaps the current production year and then showcases the changes for new model year. At the “What’s New for 2013 Corvette” Seminar presented to a standing room only crowd in the Chevrolet Theater on Saturday morning, Team Corvette Members Tadge Juechter, Harlan Charles, Kirk Bennion and Craig Sass went through their areas of expertise and then opened up the forum for questions. Watch the complete 1-hour seminar after the jump.
At the NCM Bash on Friday, visitors were greated with a lineup of 2013 Corvettes on display on the patio outside the Museum. The display included the new 427 Convertibles as well as a Grand Sport, Z06 and a ZR1, all in 60th Anniversary white trim.
We’ve heard about obsessive-compulsive owners who won’t drive their Corvette if there is even a 10 percent chance of rain in the forecast five days from now. We even heard about one guy who parked his ‘Vette underneath a car wash during a storm to wait it out – while on a date with his future wife!
Apparently the dude on this video, however, didn’t get the memo that Corvettes are something to be treasured and taken care of.
At the NCM Bash at the Corvette Museum today, Team Corvette members Tadge Juechter and Harlan Charles gave a brief walk around tour of the 2013 Corvette.

Sure we already seen pictures of the new blue color available for 2013 Corvettes, but to actually see the new Night Race Blue sparkle under the beautiful Bowling Green sunshine was a whole new experience. We are officially in love with the new color and while it will take some time for people to experience the color in person for themselves, hopefully these photos will give you an idea of how it really looks.
Thursday officially kicked off the 2012 NCM Bash at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. The crowds were good and with many different activities to attend, it was tough to cover it all. But we tried and so after the jump, take a look at what went on at the Corvette Museum on Day 1 of the NCM Bash.
Earlier this year, Callaway announced the building of a special run of 25 Corvette Grand Sports for the 25th Anniversary of RPO B2K, the first turbo-charged Corvettes offered by the factory. Although today’s RPO B2K has traded in the turbos for a supercharger, the end result is equally awesome.
