August was a very busy month with the Woodward Dream Cruise, Corvettes at Carlisle, and the NCM 25th Anniversary Celebration running over the last three consecutive weekends. The one constant between all three shows is that the Corvette Team is making sure their new 2020 Corvette Stingray is being seen by enthusiasts.
The National Corvette Museum’s 25th Anniversary Celebration was much more than just a show as the 6th Annual Corvette Caravan brought thousands of Corvettes and their owners to Bowling Green. The staff at the NCM did a fantastic job of organizing the grounds with ample parking while inside there was still plenty of room to walk around the various exhibits. For the seminars, the NCM was simulcasting the Corvette Team presentations to both the PDI Garage and an outdoor tent with big screens so that nobody would miss out on all the new information on the C8 Corvette.
Also, hats off to the Corvette Team for bringing in a number of different 2020 Corvette Stingrays for Corvette owners to walk around and even sit in them to try it out. The Corvette pop-up showroom almost always had a line for those wanting to check out the Torch Red Corvette Stingray inside, as well as view the various components, seats, and C8 accessories. A number of other C8 Corvettes that were driven to the show by the engineers also garnered significant traffic from Corvette enthusiasts who trekked to the parking lot for a look.
The engineers were very patient as they answered all questions possible about the new 2020 Corvette Stingrays. The three seminars put on by the Corvette Team had this show feeling somewhat like the Annual Bash Event which is when we used to get new product information. And this is just the beginning of the C8 rollout! We still have the Corvette Stingray Convertible coming out sometime in October as well as the C8.R Corvette race car.
The NCM 25th Anniversary Celebrations was one of the best Corvette events we have ever attended and it was great seeing so many friends and meeting new ones during the show. Above is the official recap video from the NCM and we are sharing some of my favorite photos taken during the event in this photo gallery below!
