fob to a new 2014 Stingray into Dor DeLong's hand as her husband, Jack
DeLong, dropped the keys of their 1992 Corvette into Museum Executive
Director Wendell Strode's hands. The DeLongs decided to donate their
prized Corvette while taking R8C Museum Delivery of their new "C7."
car is a special car to Dor and I," Jack said. "It was a gift that we
gave to ourselves when we reached a point in life where we could really
enjoy it. It was the first car we ever took to the Museum, and the first
car that we took back to its birthplace at the Assembly Plant. We put
many thousands of miles on this car going to countless NASCAR races,
club events and road tours, making memories every mile along the way."
