View Full Version : Corvette Action Center Celebrates 5th Anniversary

04-05-05, 08:14 PM
Earlier this week, on April 1, the Corvette Action Center celebrated it's 5th year on the Web.

In 1988, a special customer support team was started at the Corvette manufacturing facility in Bowling Green, Kentucky, called the "Corvette Action Center". This team was designed to provide technical information directly to Corvette customers and dealerships. It consisted of Danny Hawkins, Harold White, Sonny Kilgo, Gordon Killebrew, Jerry Watts and Ed O'Keefe. By the time the Corvette Action Center was shut down around 1995, the Center was receiving approximately 200 calls per day via the toll-free phone number.

This Corvette Action Center you see here originally started out as a small New Hampshire based Corvette web site and has been under development since January of 2000. The site actually went live on the web on April 1, 2000 and our Community Forums were started September 16, 2000.

The prime directive of the Corvette Action Center is to promote the awareness, preservation and enjoyment of the Chevrolet Corvette and help educate owners and enthusiasts by providing a professional and reliable online source of Corvette news and information.

We consider the Corvette Action Center to be a major informational repository and in a "continuous state of improvement". The information contained within is constantly being updated in order to insure that it is reliable and consistent. The engineering of the site is also under a constant state of development in order to make room for future additions and to insure that site navigation and informational access is quick and intuitive.

Happy Birthday Corvette Action Center!

Great site Rob. I've been here 3 1/2 years and can't believe the changes. I can't imagine everything that went into the first 18 months.

Is there a tie in, other than a shared name, between the original project and the Internet site?

You 'da man Rob! Thanks for all the hard work and many happy returns! :CAC

Rob, congratulations on such a great site.

And a special thanks for a special favor. My wife contacted Rob when I was in a bad accident with my corvette. I ended up in the hospital for six weeks. Anita e-mailed Rob and he put it on the CAC web. You all have no idea what all your responses meant to me.

Thanks, everybody

Thanks Rob and :birth to:CAC .

Without CAC owning a Corvette in <st1:country-region><st1:place>Spain</st1:place></st1:country-region> would be a nightmare. There is so much information here that I seldom need to post a question because any problem that I have has already been thoroughly discussed and solved.:upthumbs
