Gus & Peggy Puryear Join One Acre Club

Gus Puryear is passionate about all things Corvette. You can find him at the Museum attending events with his wife Peggy,  and they’ve been on every Corvette Cruise that the Museum has hosted. He is a huge racing fan as well and figures he’s logged in a thousand hours volunteering at ALMS races. Over the last 11 years, he’s gotten to know the fans and the drivers rather well. “ALMS racing is like no other. Fans of the cars can cheer them on, and they can meet the drivers, get up next to the cars, and experience the event up close. I don’t care what your area of interest is in with Corvette--restoration, autocross, or club activities, if you go to a race, you’ll get hooked.”

Gus has been on the track himself driving all kinds of cars, so his support of the NCM Motorsports Park is a given.

“When you look at what the Museum has been able to accomplish and become since it was originally thought up, one can only imagine what kind of thing it could be with its own track. Corvette owners could really learn what these amazing cars are capable of, and it could do so much towards building a love for the Corvette with future generations.”

He has joined the One-Acre Club and continues to encourage others to do the same.  “No matter what car people might bring to the track, when they get exposed to the professional and friendly staff at the NCM and the passionate and enthusiastic members, they might decide that it’s time to enjoy a really nice car.” (He says with a chuckle.)

Lifetime Membership with Zora Signed Certificate

Here is a very special opportunity to own a treasured piece of Corvette History and receive unique benefits at the National Corvette Museum too.  This special Lifetime Membership package to the National Corvette Museum not only provides you with benefits such as:  free admission, 15% discount on Corvette Store purchases, invitations to special VIP functions and subscription to America’s Sports Car magazine; but also includes a rare opportunity to have a Zora Arkus-Duntov signed certificate.  The Lifetime Membership alone is valued at $1500 and includes all benefits provided with a National Corvette Museum Lifetime Membership.  The Zora signed certificate will be personalized in the name(s) that the Lifetime Membership is issued to.

Zora Arkus-Duntov is known to many car enthusiasts as the patron saint of the Corvette. But he was much more than that. He was a man who packed the experiences of nine or ten lifetimes into one-a man who defines the term "living on the edge."  Zora was the first chief engineer of Corvette.

This unique certificate is also signed by the late Dan Gale, first Executive Director of the National Corvette Museum and co-founder of the NCRS Northeast Chapter. eBay bidding on this very rare item ends December 22 online HERE.

For more details regarding our Lifetime Membership program, please visit the National Corvette Museum website here.
