Winterize Your Ride

How would you like to get your car all cleaned up and ready for a winter's rest, while taking her out for one last hoorah for 2011?

Why not plan a special visit and Xperience at the National Corvette Museum? Much like the R8C Delivery option, the NCM Xperience gives you the chance to take a VIP tour of the Corvette Plant and Museum while your baby gets VIP treatment in the Museum's PDI area. After a good cleaning, your car will be put on display in the Museum's Corvette Boulevard, broadcast live on our webcams for all to see.

Participants of the program also receive a free one-year individual Museum membership, commemorative plaque, silver decal recognizing the participation in the program and an individual photo in front of the Museum (weather permitting).

NCM Xperiences are $350, and you can bring three friends with you! Additionally, Xperiences are open to any year Corvette! Learn more online, and book yours today!

Museum Gets a Nod at Fenway

Ambassadors are an important part of the National Corvette Museum - serving as a liasion between us and their clubs while promoting our offerings to the world.

One such Ambassador got a little nod to the Museum in a very unusual way! Mike Furman shared with us a surprising shoutout to him and the Museum.

"I have a Corvette ZR1 customer who is a very influential Boston businessman that invited me to Fenway Park [in September]. I flew up Saturday evening and got a tour of Fenway and watched the Rays beat the Sox. It was a great New England Fall day. In the middle of the 5th he told me to watch the scoreboard. See attached picture. I am an Ambassador (Frederick County Corvette Club in MD) for the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY...hence the reference."

Thanks, Mike, for sharing! If your club doesn't currently have an ambassador for the Museum and you might be interested - please checkout our website's Ambassador page for more information!

Holiday Gift Guide: Metal Cast Photos

Looking for a holiday gift idea for that special someone who is so hard to shop for? Why not get them a unique metal cast photo, matted and framed?

In addition to offering metal cast photos, we also offer build sheets and window stickers cast in aerospace grade aluminum. The plaques are 6" x 10" and are $95 (members) and $115 (non-members). Window sticker casts are $125 (members), $150 (non-members). Add the matting and framing for an additional $140 (member) and $155 (nonmember).

The metal casting takes approximately 4-5 weeks, and framing is an additional week, so order yours today online here. Note: we can hold your items and ship 12/15 by request.

Gift certificates for build sheets and window stickers are also available!
