General Motors Spotlights Corvette Museum Delivery Program
Former U.S. Army Vice Chief of Staff General Richard Cody is now in possession of his 10th Chevy Corvette, but instead of driving the 2010 Torch Red Grand Sport Convertible off a dealership lot, he recently picked it up at the National Corvette Museum.
The idea to watch his car being built came to Cody from GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz, who suggested that seeing the build process would enrich Cody’s ownership experience. Cody made it a family affair, bringing along his son, Major Clint Cody, just back from Iraq where he was an Army Apache helicopter pilot; and his brother, Bob Cody, a Chevrolet dealer in Montpelier, VT.

A Story of 36 Vintage Corvettes
Just last week Daniel McDermon published a story in the New York Times about 36 vintage Corvettes that had been stored in his apartment building's basement garage for years. The cars had been part of a promotion by VH-1 in 1989 and one lucky winner, a carpenter from Long Island, received the prize of Corvettes from years 1953 to 1989. The cars were sold to Pop Art icon Peter Max, who has basically had them in storage ever since.
We found the original article, plus follow up investigative reports on Jalopnik and Digital Corvettes quite interesting. We think you'll enjoy them, too! (Click the names of all three mentioned publications to read their stories).
