Tom & Karen Fuller Join One Acre Club
Tom Fuller has always been a "wrench twister" according to wife, Karen. He has rebuilt several Corvettes, and the couple enjoy collecting military vehicles, motorcycles, street rods, tractors and vintage cars in addition to running their farm in Suwanee, GA.
Karen said that Nancy and the late Al Jones (also One Acre Club members) were their inspiration for joining the Museum as Lifetime Members and that was the best thing they have done when it comes to Corvette ownership.
"We joined the One Acre Club because we felt it was a way to give back to Corvette and the next generation. Our grandson, Thomas V, loves driving the Corvette his Dad got in high school - so the Corvette 'heart throb' lives on in our family."
Thanks to the Fullers for their continuous support of the Museum. To learn more about the Motorsports Park project, click here!
Museum On the Road!
This weekend we're taking the 'show on the road' as we travel to both Road America and Back to the Bricks!
This weekend at Road America is the Corvette World Tribute, August 18-21, in conjunction with the ALMS GT2 Race.
Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Chevrolet, there will be racing, touring, displays, presentations, celebrity guests, autographs, reunions, vendors, the traditional Corvette Corral and more including the re-dedication of the famous Corvette Bridge at turn 6.
Sunday, August 21 is the crown jewel of the event and the Museum will be fully represented by a booth. Check out our Vintage Race Car on display, as well as other goodies to be discovered. For a complete event agenda, click here.
Also this weekend is Back to the Bricks in Flint, MI. Highlights of this jam-packed event include a Friday night "meet and greet" with the Corvette Museum at 6pm at Brick Street Bar & Grill. Then on Saturday the event kicks into high gear with a car show. The top 50 cars will be selected, plus largest club, furthest traveled and 30 cars will be picked for the Motor City Corvette Concours. All 82 of these winners will receive a very cool Corvette trophy mounted on a brick.
