Gone But Not Forgotten

General Motors has played a pivotal role in the global automotive industry for more than 100 years. From the first Buick horseless carriages, to modern technological marvels, the products and innovations have always excelled at putting the world on wheels. A special display of fourteen cars in the Museum’s Exhibit Hall highlights models produced by GM that are no longer rolling off assembly lines.

The exhibit runs through January 6, 2017. Check out a preview list of the cars online here.
The True Story of the 1983 Corvette

The world's only 1983 Corvette has long been shrouded with mystery. Why is it the only one? How did it manage to survive? How did it wind up at the National Corvette Museum? In this installment of the NCM Heritage Series, we track down the people who were there as this car made its trip from the plant, through the Milford Proving Grounds, and into Corvette history.

Grab the popcorn and tune in online here to watch our 18 minute film.

Growing an Enthusiast

You can’t drive down the road and pass a sports car without ten-year-old Logan Smutylo pointing it out by name. “He’s a car nut,” shares his grandmother, Vicky Gee. “He knows the cars he sees on the road.”

Logan is the reason Vicky and husband Oscar opted for an R8C Museum Delivery for their 2017 Blade Silver Grand Sport.

“At first I didn’t know about the program, and didn’t originally opt for the R8C,” said Oscar. “But then when I saw you offered a children’s program that ties in with the R8C, I decided to add it.”

The Ed and Shari Glazer Family Delivery Program was designed to encourage and welcome the participation of children and grandchildren.

Required Minimum Distributions Can Help Your Museum

One method the Federal Government uses to induce taxation, even when the taxpayer would rather wait, is through forced Required Minimum Distributions (“RMD’s”) from your IRA or other retirement plans. These annual taxable retirement payments appear complicated; but here’s a high level understanding of how RMDs work and a way to make this tax burden benefit the National Corvette Museum.
