Paul Marseglia recently said goodbye to an old friend, the 1974 Corvette Stingray that he’s owned since it was new.

The Franklin, Mass., man donated his brown Corvette to the National Corvette Museum because he knew it would be treated with the same respect and love that he had shown it during the past 40 years.

With attendance and revenue soaring over last year, thanks to the sinkhole in February that swallowed eight classic cars, the National Corvette Museum Board of Directors decided today to pursue keeping a smaller portion of the hole open, pending further study.

The board had considered two other options: filling the sinkhole and returning the Skydome to its previous condition, or keeping the entire sinkhole as it is.

The option the board chose seems to be a good compromise for all sides.

When it comes to Corvette enthusiasts, they don’t come much more enthusiastic than Jack and Dor DeLong.

They’ve always made it clear that owning a Corvette is all about the memories they can make and share with others, so naturally they’ve been a major supporter of the National Corvette Museum. As Lifetime Members, they’ve donated money, bought bricks, and even “purchased” three acres at the soon-to-open NCM Motorsports Park.

About three years ago the team at Heartland Customs approached the National Corvette Museum about their Specvette custom Corvette program. Each Specvette takes a classic C1, C2, or C3 Corvette and treats it to a full makeover incorporating all the modern bits from a late model C6. Last weekend at the NCM Bash they unveiled Specvette #1, a stunning 1958 packing a 7 liter LS7 under the hood.
