Chevrolet Reveals 2012 Corvette Daytona Prototype
On Tuesday Chevrolet unveilled at the Daytona International Speedway the first of Grand-Am's third-generation Rolex Series Daytona Prototypes.
Oliver Gavin and Antonio Garcia (Corvette Racing's ALMS drivers) took to the wheel yesterday for a test drive while the first official competitive race is at Daytona January 28-29.
Corvette has a long history of racing at Daytona, including Zora Arkus-Duntov setting a mile speed record of more than 150mph on Daytona Beach and in 1959 when Daytona Speedway opened he turned the fastest laps at 155mph.
Corvette Blogger posted what is a very cool, very different Corvette brochure for the 2012 Model Year. The brochure features our Corvette friends Harlan Charles, Tadge Juechter and Kirk Bennion and our Racing friends Doug Fehan and Tommy Milner - each sharing their perspectives on how the current production model Corvette is much like the Le Mans winning race car, the Corvette C6.R.
The brochure even gives the Museum a mini-nod on page 4! And if you are in the market for back issues of dealer brochures, they're on sale here.
Congrats to Dale Traylor of Starke, FL with ticket #112 in today's drawing for a "Build Your Own" Grand Sport! We sold 1165 of the 1994 tickets.
Santa Claus could come early for someone when we raffle off the chance to "Build Your Own" Z06 or Grand Sport Corvette with $60,000 cash option on Thursday, December 1 at 2pm. The winner has the option of picking their model Corvette, colors and options or taking the cash. The raffle is limited to 1,500 tickets at $150 each.
As of today (Thursday) we've only sold 89 tickets!
Next Saturday, November 26 is the Museum's 3rd Annual Breakfast with Santa! A special thanks to all the individuals and clubs who sponsored less fortunate families to be able to join us - we will have 18 special families with us that day!
In addition to the excitement of Santa making his grand entrance in a red Corvette, we also have a Gingerbread Village designed to look like Bowling Green's historic Fountain Square and new Santa's Market Shopping from 9am-3pm on the Boulevard. If you are in the area we hope you can come out and shop with our great vendors.
More information and tickets to Breakfast with Santa are available online here.

Clubs Give Back Spotlight
Several club ambassadors submitted ways they support our military... this month we will share some of those ways!
The Skyline Drive Corvette Club sends 2 to 3 military care packages each month. As the ambassador, I collect both money and items donated by the club. I also had a booth at our car show for donations. We also collect all the extras from the hotel/motel rooms when we travel, heck, you paid for them. 36 cars over 5 or 6 days on the road yield a treasure of small soaps, shampoos, and coffee and tea. With the money, we make Walmart runs for needed items such as snacks, beef jerkey, bar mix, chap stick, etc. Also car magazines, tee shirts, spam-they requested spam and beans!
We have heard from the units, very appreciative of the packages. Check out the web site: www.food4troops.org. This is run by two Vietnam era fellows in my area of Pennsylvania.
