Whoa, big news here!
We were wondering if there would be any C8 Corvette news that would be made during the NCM Bash that runs Thursday, April 25th through Saturday, April 28th. We figured there might be some kind of announcement like officially revealing the new logo or an announcement on where the reveal will happen. But now it looks like GM may be offering a glimpse of the C8 Corvettes themselves during the bash.
That news comes from the National Corvette Museum directly via their weekly newsletter that went out this afternoon:
“We have some exciting news about the next generation Corvette to share and are bringing a few new things,” shared Megan Marquis, Chevrolet Corvette Marketing & Advertising. A camo wrapped Corvette has already been spotted at a gas station near the Museum, and enthusiasts have expressed their hope of witnessing one driving by the event.
The annual GM presentation will take place on Friday from 9-10:30am CT, and again Saturday at 8:45am. One of each model of 2019 Corvette, including each of the new Drivers’ Edition, will be on display, too.
While pre-registration has ended, on-site registration will be available for $20 for Lifetime Members, $25 for Members, and $35 for non-members. Registration covers all three days and includes Museum admission.
For those already planning to attend the NCM Bash, this is welcome news! After all, the C8 is the biggest elephant in the room and how much new info will there really be on the 2019 models which will end production in a few months anyway.
Hopefully we have the opportunity to capture one of these drive-bys as it happens and we are looking to see the reactions of those in attendance as well. Stay tuned and we’ll see you at the NCM Bash!
So on our Facebook Page after posting this story, we heard from the NCM’s Katie Ellison who replied with the following:
Haha nope – we said there would be some ‘news’ related to the C8 from GM. They have been driving around the area and we know that everyone would love to see that but we have NO knowledge of any planned ‘drive bys’.
I think she’s saying there is still a chance that we’ll see the C8 Corvettes during the Bash. And if we don’t, well that’s on them…
