National Corvette Museum

The National Corvette Museum (NCM) now has a new exhibit for the world’s one and only remaining 1983 Corvette thanks to the generosity of the Dyer Family Foundation. The white coupe was previously displayed in the Skydome mixed in with the other Corvettes, just blending in with its surroundings.

General Motors to Restore the 1992 'One Millionth' Corvette Rescued from Sinkhole
