We're Thankful for YOU!

The National Corvette Museum has so much to be thankful for. We want you to know that we greatly appreciate each and every one of our supporters. It is you, our enthusiasts, that keep this Museum going. We hope that everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving. If you are traveling this holiday weekend, please be safe... and if you are driving by the big yellow dome on I-65, please stop by and say 'hello'!

Ambassador Gets Creative

Corvette Museum Ambassador Dave Putz got creative in finding ways to sell our raffle tickets! He shared with us what he did!

"Tickets sales were slow among the Corvette and Car Show people. I sold 17 to my club and 13 to a mixed group at a Saturday night cruise in in Longwood, Florida. That left 70 tickets to sell (you had sent me 100). Longwood happens to have a yearly Arts and Crafts show the week-end before Thanksgiving. They close my street. Here are some pictures of what I did for two days. The crowd walks right in front of my house. So I set up and sold the remaining 70 tickets. This also worked out last year and that is when I sold the winning ticket to Don Allen, of Apopka." - Dave Putz, Florida Corvette Club Ambassador

Seeking Corvette Stories

The Museum is seeking heart-warming, interesting, bizarre, funny or inspiring stories about Corvette owners and their Corvettes for the Jan/Feb 2012 issue of America's Sports Car.

An example would be the story of display car owner Chance Mayfield who had his 'Vette stolen in 1970, only to have it recovered by the police 40 years later, fully restored and in mint condition.

A limited number of stories will be printed. Please submit 500 words or less and up to three high quality photos by Wednesday, December 7 to editor@corvettemuseum.org. Articles must be from and about Museum Members. If your story is selected we will notify you, and if we don't use it this time we will hold it for future consideration.

Early Corvette Artifacts Donated

Mrs. Aileene Jarema came to the NCM on 11/22 to donate pictures, memos, newspaper articles, drawings and other items going back to Corvette’s beginnings in Flint Michigan.  Her late husband, Carl Jarema, was the Product Engineer for the 1953 Corvette and saved everything that he could from those days.  In 1954 they moved from Flint to St. Louis where he continued to work on the Corvette, collecting pictures and documents while he was there as well. Among the treasures were photographs of people on the line along with their names, keeping their contribution from being lost to history. 

“Carl knew from the beginning that the Corvette was going to be important,” Mrs. Jarema said as she looked at the Museum around her. “He was a smart man as all of this confirms.” Former Flint Michigan plant worker, Robert Wilson also showed up with Mrs. Jarema to provide valuable insight behind the artifacts she brought. Once again, the Library and Archives has fulfilled its purpose of collecting and preserving Corvette history.
