Donate Now to the National Corvette Museum

I’ve been thinking about writing this post since word of the giant sinkhole opening up inside the National Corvette Museum made headlines around the world.

The staff of the Corvette Museum, led by their unshakable leader Wendell Strode, have really stepped up to confront this natural disaster head-on. We’ve seen the videos of the damaged cars and heard from the experts about the local geology. But now it’s time for the Museum to hear from us, the enthusiasts and Corvette owners who helped make the NCM what it is today.

Despite having insurance which will cover stabilizing the main Spire and repairing the floor inside the Sky Dome, the NCM will have some major out-of-pocket expenses including sinkhole remediation and insurance deductibles.

The Corvette Hobby Comes Together for the 7th Annual Corvettes for Chip

Article contributed by Lance Miller / Corvettes at Carlisle / Chip Miller Charitable Foundation

The Corvette hobby lost an amazing person in 2004. My father, Chip Miller passed away from a rare disease called amyloidosis. Shortly after his passing, my family and I decided to start the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation (CMCF) in his honor and to raise awareness of this terrible disease.

The Corvette hobby was and continues to be the driving force behind the efforts and mission of the CMCF. My father was not only a wonderful person; he was also a best friend and mentor to me and many of my friends. His loss affected me in many ways, but most importantly to follow his mantra of “Life is good!” He was an incredibly positive, caring and generous person and his passing made me realize just how precious every minute really is and to enjoy the time we have on this earth.
