Thanks to the generosity of an Idaho couple, the National Corvette Museum is now the proud owner of a virtually brand new 1988 35th Anniversary Corvette.

We’ve seen a few of these all-white cars through the years, and the beautiful white interior is usually the first thing to be ruined by everyday use.

But that’s definitely not the case with this 35th Anniversary Corvette donated by Rick and Deb Seymour last month to the NCM.

We Corvette enthusiasts often refer to our cars as our “children.” Just as with our real children, though, sometimes we have to let our Corvettes go so they can soar on their own.

That’s never been truer than in the case of a Texas couple who recently donated their 1978 25th Silver Anniversary Corvette and their 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette to the National Corvette Museum.

National Corvette Museum Receives Two Corvettes as Donation Gift

The kindness and generosity of Corvette owners is no secret.

Just look at what William (Bill) Engle Jr. – also known as “Sweat Hog” of Albany, N.Y., Ridgewood, N.J., and now Summit, N.Y. – has just done for the National Corvette Museum.

Joining the growing list of enthusiasts who have bequeathed their prized possessions to the Museum, Engle decided to donate his 1967 and 1987 Corvettes to the NCM.

The National Corvette Museum’s supply of vehicles has grown by one as Randy Pierce and Charla Heintz donated their 2007 Ron Fellows Edition Corvette Z06. The pair have volunteered at the museum for years often spending a week at a time offering help wherever it’s needed. Many times they’ll be tending to the Corvette Store, but Randy also helps by picking up large donated items from around the country and delivering them to the museum.

Ivan and Mary Schrodt Donate Five Corvettes to the National Corvette Museum

Ivan and Mary Schrodt of Sherwood, Wisconsin made headlines in the Corvette world recently when they donated five Corvettes to the National Corvette Museum (NCM) The five included one Corvette from each of generations C2 through C6 and initially were to be included in the Schrodts very generous gift to the NCM as part of their estate. However, after their first trip to the NCM Motorsports Park during the 2014 Labor Day Celebration, they had a change of heart.
