Corvettes at Carlisle's Lance Miller to Conduct Seminar at Bash
Attendees at this year's Bash event will have the opportunity to hear the story of the restoration of the first Corvette to win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Lance Miller, son of Carlisle founder Chip Miller, says that the plan is to have the 1960 Cunningham Corvette and one of the drivers, John Fitch, attend the 2010 Le Mans race in June and his seminar is scheduled for Saturday, May 1 at the NCM.
General Motors is also honoring that historic win with the new Corvette Z06 Carbon Limited Edition which will also be at the Bash.

Wil Cooksey Receives Prestigious Award
Wil Cooksey, former manager of the world’s only Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, KY and a member of the Board of Directors of the National Corvette Museum will receive the prestigious Lee Iacocca Award August 21, 2010 at the “Cool Cars, Cool Mountains” Car Show in Gunnison, Colorado. Only 20 car clubs in the United States are designated annually by Mr. Iacocca to select recipients for the award that bears his name.
Mike Callihan, president of the Gunnison Car Club, says the choice of Wil Cooksey for the Iacocca Award was a natural one. “Wil is simply an incredible individual. Whether in the car business, on the boards of non-profit community organizations or on the race track he never gives less than his all out best. It doesn’t hurt that he’s a car nut from head to toe, either.” Read more about this award on our blog.
