New FIVE Acre Club Member!

After E. Pierce Marshall became the first to start the FIVE Acre Club, Donald Ghareeb was impressed by that level of commitment and chose to do it as well.  “Marshall broke some good territory,” Don said. He’s hoping that others with the means will be inspired to make the same commitment.
Don’s love for Corvette goes back several years. “I got my first Corvette in 1964, my second in 1997 and currently have five, so I’ve been a Corvette guy for a long time. The Museum has done a terrific job at getting the marque out there and representing it in a positive way. I’ve taken three Museum deliveries and I think that having a Motorsports Park at the Museum is a terrific idea. It’s something I’m interested in and since I’m in a position to help I don’t mind doing it.”
Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode is grateful for the support and is hoping that even more will see the vision and participate as Don and so many others have done. “In order to begin construction of the West Track in the first phase, we need all of the help that we can get before June (?). Corvette enthusiasts have really rallied to help in the $1 million dollar challenge with their donations and commitments taking us to the $750,000 mark.”  To make your donation at this critical time, please contact or visit our website at

Marque of Excellence Exhibit

As we get closer to the 60th Anniversary Celebration of Corvette, what could be a more fitting exhibit than the Marque of Excellence Corvette Exhibit running from May 11-September 13, 2013. This 14 car exhibit features Corvettes that have earned NCRS Top Flight and Bloomington Gold honors, making each of them a beautiful example of Corvette history.
