The National Corvette Museum’s Bash kicks off later this week and one of the special events happening over the three-day event is the raffle of this Velocity Yellow 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible tribute to Andy Pilgrim, who was inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame last September.
Hall of Fame
The National Corvette Museum recently announced the 2013 inductees into their Corvette Hall of Fame. This year’s honorees include a noted enthusiast/restorer, a former Corvette Plant Manager, and a decorated Corvette racing driver.
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.
What a weekend it was for Corvette!
Not only did the Corvette Racing team finish second and third in the GT class in Sunday’s Twelve Hours of Sebring competition, but Corvette capped that success by being inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame.
And who can argue with the choice?
The National Corvette Museum has announced the names of four inductees into the 2012 Corvette Hall of Fame. GM/Chevrolet’s Gary Claudio, Founding NCM Member Patrick Dolan, Chevrolet dealer Bob McDorman and former Corvette Racing driver Andy Pilgrim. The Class of 2012 will be inducted on August 30th, 2012 at the National Corvette Museum.
Two icons of sports car racing will be inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame in March. Johnny O’Connell and the Chevrolet Corvette were named as part of the 2012 group of inductees into America’s greatest sports car race hall of fame. The induction ceremony will take place on Friday, March 16 at the Chateau Elan Hotel which overlooks the historic race circuit.
The Corvette Z06 Ron Fellows ‘Hall of Fame’ Tribute was one of two Corvette concepts that General Motors brought with them to SEMA this year. The Red and White Corvette was the featured display at the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch / Ron Fellows Driving School booth in the adjoining hall. We took many photos of the tribute car and we also have a video of Ron Fellows showing off his personalized special edition Corvette Z06 at Chevrolet’s introduction event held last Monday.
With SEMA coming up next week, we’ve been wondering what the General will have in store for Corvette fans at the show and now we have the answer! In a sea of Camaros and the sporty new Sonics, you’ll find two “tribute” Corvettes at the 2011 show: The Ron Fellows “Hall of Fame” Corvette Z06 and the Corvette Carlisle Blue Grand Sport Concept.
The National Corvette Museum has released the names of the 2011 Corvette Hall of Fame Inductees. Corvette race car driver Ron Fellows, GM Designer Clare MacKichan and NCM Member #1 Ray Quinlan will join the likes of Zora Arkus-Duntov, Harley Earl and Dick Thompson in the Hall of Fame. Once inducted, their names will be hung in the rotunda of the Corvette Museum’s Spire in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
