CORVETTE MUSEUM DELIVERY             "RPO R8C"

After years of customers requesting to take delivery of their new Corvettes in Bowling Green, Kentucky--"home of the Corvette"-General Motors and the National Corvette Museum agreed "in house" delivery was possible. We have joined together to create the Corvette Museum Delivery.

The concept increases total customer enthusiasm by permitting a customer, in one trip; to take delivery of his or her Corvette, tour the Corvette Assembly Plant, and visit the Museum dedicated to the car's heritage. When ordering a new Corvette, option R8C identifies the unit as a Corvette Museum Delivery. The program is limited to sold orders only and is a $490 option.

Following the production of the vehicle, it is shipped to a local dealership for pre-delivery inspection, detailing, and fueling. The customers Corvette is then delivered to the National Corvette Museum, just across the street from the Corvette Assembly Plant, for professional delivery and driver orientation. The customer arrives at the Museum to a sign welcoming their visit and to view their Corvette on display among some of the most famous vehicles ever built. The customer is given a VIP tour of the Museum, and usually visits the Assembly Plant for a regularly scheduled tour, as well.

To make the Museum-delivered vehicle more special, the customer is presented with a specially designed Corvette Museum Delivery decal to be placed on their Corvette's door jam. He also receives a free one-year membership to the National Corvette Museum. A laser-engraved wood plaque commemorating the vehicle's VIN and delivery date is ordered and shipped to the selling dealer for presentation, concluding this unique and special event.

The Corvette is the only vehicle in North America to offer this type of delivery, - joining more expensive European luxury vehicles. The person choosing option R8C places himself in a select group of Corvette owners.

NCM NOTE:
On December 18, Les and Dale Goldman 
[C5R #V0052] drove their new 1998 red Corvette convertible to their home in Marlboro, Massachusetts. The C5 is the Goldman's 8th Corvette; their other assortment includes a '62, '64, '73,'77, '78, '79 and a '89 model. Les purchased the car from Bud's Chevrolet in St. Mary's, Ohio, and by pressing a few keys on his computer, joined the C5 Registry through the Internet. The Goldman's moved back to the States in November after spending over three years in Singapore. Les waited to buy the car because he said in Singapore a left hand driven car wouldn't do any good!
