Verizon, Halliburton, Safeco, Kraft Foods, Kimberly-Clark, Dell, JP Morgan Chase, American Express, ITW, IBM, Citgo, Exxon, Merrill Lynch, Thrivent Gift, AT & T, Motorola, Pfizer, Boeing

While your company's donation is tax dedutible for them but not you, their donation does count towards your Winner's Circle recognition! Check with your HR Department to obtain proper paperwork for any matching program.

New Military Display

The history of Corvette has many ties to the military, from Ed Cole's friend General Ed Curry who passed along the enthusiasm servicemen had when seeing European sports cars, to the name itself.

Within the Nostalgia area of the Museum we have added new panels featuring enthusiast-submitted images that are military in theme - whether the car's owner was or is in the military, to Corvettes at special military sites. Get an up close look at these panels online here, and be sure to check out some of the images and stories on your next visit!

Thanks to everyone who submitted an image!
