Pennsylvania Man Gets the Car and the Girl at the National Corvette Museum

Well, this lucky fellow got the Corvette – AND the girl!

Mike Basile of the Philadelphia area had been dating Stacy Sulima for eight years but kept putting her off when it came time for marriage. Their running joke was that they were in “penalty time.”

Explained Mike: “We had been dating for seven years and Stacy was like, ‘now I’m eligible’ but I told her no, it’s like soccer. You don’t know when penalty time is going to end.”

Ironically enough, could the dispute over the noise being generated by the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park be settled quietly behind the scenes?

Corvette enthusiasts certainly hope so.

Another sign that the parties involved are trying to reach an amicable agreement zoomed into town Tuesday.

The National Corvette Museum will have its day in court on Nov. 17, hoping to have a $100 a day fine from the Warren County Code Enforcement Board nullified.

Warren District Judge John Brown scheduled the hearing, during which the NCM is expected to argue that the fine was issued arbitrarily and that it is being discriminated against.

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.

Corvette Museum's Motorsports Park Applies for Certificate of Occupancy

Still more news coming out of Bowling Green this week regarding the ongoing saga with the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park’s dealings with the Warren County Planning Commission.

It’s always great news when you hear that customers are finally getting their hands on a new or special special edition Corvette.

It was back in April 2015 that the Corvette Team first unveiled the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash Event. Now we’ve come full circle with the first R8C Museum Delivery of the special edition Z06.

The NCM’s latest newsletter featured Lifetime members Ron and Jessica Grove of Mohnton, PA and their brand new Corvette. The 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition they picked up was one of the first 10 of the commemorative C7.R Editions available and one of five to go to the NCM for R8C customer deliveries.

We’ve known Ron Grove personally now for a while as he is an active follower of the CorvetteBlogger twitter feed. He’s also a huge fan of Corvette Racing so we are sure that was one of the main reasons he jumped to buy the new special edition car.

We reached out to Ron to congratulate him on the car and he replied “Awesome Z06! A huge step change from my C6 Z06!” That we can imagine! Congratulations again Ron and Jessica and we hope you enjoy your new 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition!
