We Collect Corvette

Did you know that in addition to being an auto museum, we also serve as a library and archives for all things Corvette?

Enthusiasts like you have donated various artifacts, books, magazines and more which helps us grow our collection - like Howard Maxwell of Morriston, FL who recently donated a 1961 shop manual; Ivan Schrodt who donated advertising proofs and a letter that GM sent to dealers when the Museum opened; and Gary Pippel of Canton, GA who donated various Corvette ads, articles, a 1998 Corvette Convertible press kit and 2001 Corvette press kit.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation we are happy to acknowledge your donation for tax deduction purposes and we will periodically feature such donations in eNews.

To inquire about making a donation, contact Betty in our Library & Archives at 270-467-8841 or email her

Land Clearing Begins, Fundraising Continues

Even though the Motorsports Park groundbreaking ceremony is just over a month away, we are already preparing for the work to begin. Check out our video on You Tube to see some trees being turned!

Since last week we have had seven additional acres committed, bringing our total raised to $868,000. We're just $132,000 short of our $1 million goal with just over two weeks left! Remember: the $1 million mark will ensure we include one of the road courses in the initial construction!

How can you help? Every dollar matters! No contribution is too small. So, we challenge you to log on to our website and be a part of the project.

Caravan Welcomes Mid-Atlantic Captain

Ron Hamrah has accepted the position as the captain of the Mid-Atlantic Caravan.  The sudden and tragic passing of Bob Mahler certainly left a hole in the caravan and in our hearts but Ron will be more than able to take on the organization, planning, and operation of the caravan.  Ron and his wife, Antoinette, are present residents of Washington,D.C.  Ron originally hails from Brooklyn,NY and Antoinette is a native of Los Angeles,CA.  Their first Corvette was a 1966 427/425hp outfitted in Mosport Green, which they purchased while Ron was still in the Air Force and they presently drive a 2002 Electron Blue convertible.  Ron is the Governor of the Corvette Club of America, ER-001, the oldest Corvette club.  Ron participated in the 2009 caravan and is looking forward to leading the 2014 Mid-Atlantic caravan to Bowling Green.  When not hanging out with his fellow Corvette enthusiasts, Ron is skiing with the Sun, Snow and Surf Ski Club.  Sounds like he likes speed in any form.
