[PICS] Commemorate the Build of Your 2020 Corvette with a Photo Album from the Corvette Museum


The National Corvette Museum just announced the return of their Photo Album Program that documents the build process of YOUR Corvette order at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant! My 2020 Corvette order is scheduled for build the week of February 3, 2020, and I just submitted an online order for the photo album that will forever commemorate the assembly of my 2020 Corvette. While the Buyer’s Tour option is not likely to be available until later this spring, it’s exciting that the Photo Album is now available for order.

Having personally ordered the NCM Photo Albums to preserve the build process of my wife’s 2015 Stingray and my 2017 Grand Sport, I am 100% sold on the value of the Photo Album. The photos that are included with this article are photos taken of my 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Assembly Photo Album.

Each Photo Album is $700 and covers the cost for someone to follow your specific Corvette build down the assembly line over the course of two to three plant shifts as well as the professional compilation of these photos on high-quality photo paper in a beautiful 15″x12″ padded leather 20 plus page album.

TITLE


Within each album, you’ll find no fewer than 20 pages of text and photos that capture the build process of your Corvette, a letter of authenticity, a letter from the Bowling Green Assembly Plant Manager, a letter from the NCM’s Executive Director, and blank pages for autographs. You will receive your photo album approximately eight weeks after the assembly of your Corvette.

You can order a Photo Album once you have a GM Order Number for your Corvette. Keep in mind that orders must be placed at least 10 days before your Corvette’s scheduled build date.

If you are ready to order your 2020 Corvette Assembly Photo Album, you can do so online at https://www.corvettemuseum.org/visit/delivery-programs/photo-album/

  1. My 2020 is scheduled feb 10 week. We’re planning a bowling green delivery, thanks for sharing! This will be very # 35 for me, a centerpiece of my car crazy life that I wouldn’t trade for anything…. DrZ

  2. I’ve owned 10 Corvettes, and our new 2020 will be our 11th. I’m as much a Corvette fan as anyone in the country, having written several restoration books on Corvettes in the 70’s 80’s and having edited a large Corvette only magazine. So, I’m all for anything that enhances the Corvette experience for people, but $700 for this “commemorate your Corvette build” is an absolute travesty. Because your clientele have millions in the bank is not a reason to rip them off. I know this comment won’t make it past the review committee (of one?) but I had to say it. So at least one person on earth will read it.

  3. Swissrick, a friend of mine responded to the cost of the album with the following:

    If I may, I would like to put this in a little more perspective. I’ve done photography as a fun sideline for almost 65 years, and put together some numbers to think about.
    1. Following the car to shoot 200 – 300 RAW files along the line is 16 hours, or $240 cost at $15/hr. minimum wage.
    2. Photographer selecting the 60 images to edit for the album maybe takes an hour, or $15.
    3. Editing/cropping the 60 images at 5 minutes per image is 5 hours, or $75.
    4. Printing 60 images, 4×6, my cost would be about $45.
    5. Leather album, the unknown but maybe $20. Toss in assembly for free.

    Total cost if I did this project would be about $400. If I really wanted to cut the pay rate a bit, it would still be in the $325 to $350 range, and that’s cheap. Go price a wedding shoot that takes 7 to 10 hours to shoot if you have any doubts.

    So the $700 isn’t out of line at all, allowing some to support the NCM.

  4. Well said Mr. Welborn. If I had a 2020 on order I would absolutely buy this album. Thanks for letting us know about this program. Great write up with good examples of the author’s albums of previouslying purchased Corvettes.

  5. Mike Z here, $700 might seem high, but I tend to agree with Jeremy W, I’ll turn 65 this year and have been waiting on a mid engine vette since I was a teen, I do hope any profits do actually go to the museum, as the staff, facility and the entire experience is well worth the price of admission. Heck, a week pass to Barrett Jackson will be twice that. Our Matrix Grey 3LT with Morello Red guts for Feb 10 week will be worth having pics of it in “Utero” BTW, we’re going to drive the heck out of it!! I put 80,000 miles on a Ferrari 348 TS Challenge car, and have a 93 NSX with 79,000 miles….. Trailers are to get your boat to the lake…PERIOD!!! DrZ…..I’ve got to go get my checkbook… 😝
