Idaho Couple Donates a 1988 35th Anniversary Corvette to the National Corvette Museum


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.

[PICS] Corvette Museum Delivers First 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition


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!
