BOWLING GREEN, KY--The National Corvette Museum announced plans today to expand its 1998 calendar of events. A series of "Corvette Weekend" events will take place between late spring and early fall, beginning with the C5 Registry Birthday Weekend. These events will be in addition to the annual Corvette Celebration, held each Labor Day Weekend at the National Corvette Museum, and will feature special seminars, road tours, a for-sale corral, and a spotlight registry.

The C5 Registry Birthday Weekend will be held March 27-29, 1998, with the announcement by Chevrolet of an all-new feature for the Corvette. Chevrolet engineers and representatives will be on-hand to present seminars
and answer questions concerning active handling, which will be available for the first time on the 1998 Indianapolis 500 pace car. The March event will also feature presentations on experimental active suspension, with a special dinner hosted by the C5 Registry in the Museum's skydome, featuring the unveiling and presentation of a one-of-a-kind experimental vehicle which has never been seen by the public. There will even be opportunity for some visitors to test drive Corvettes equipped with the new handling package.

The Official C5 Registry will be the featured group at the March event. This relatively new registry will be on-hand to provide information regarding their group and to celebrate the birthday of the first C5 delivery. This will be the fifth generation Corvette. The C5 Registry Birthday Weekend is open to all Corvette enthusiasts and will be an excellent opportunity for the Corvette community to meet C5 Registry members.

Pre-registration for the March event is available to both National Corvette Museum and C5 Registry members for $39, and non-members may attend the weekend's events for a $54 pre-registration fee. The re-registration
deadline is March 6, 1998. The cost of registration includes event and Museum admission, Saturday night's dinner, and a commemorative dash plaque. Registration prices are subject to increase following the March 6 deadline. For pre-registration, membership information, or a complete schedule of the C5 Registry Birthday Weekend, call the National Corvette Museum at 1-800-53-VETTE.
