To celebrate Corvette’s 50th Anniversary, the National Corvette Museum will present an Historic Motorama of Corvettes. One Corvette from each production year will be represented as the cars travel from the Corvette’s birthplace in Flint, Michigan to its current home in Bowling Green on June 28, 2002. It will be joined by the 50th Anniversary Corvette for the last mile of the Motorama Journey and arrive at the Corvette Museum for a three-day Corvette celebration.

The 2002 Z06 price was released today. The new base price, before destination and options is $49,505, an increase of $1,450 over the 2001 Z06 base price. We're sure part of this increase is due to the fact that HUD and floor mats are now standard. Also the memory package and electro chromatic mirror package has been grouped together for a total option price of $270. Of course, a destination charge of $645 must be added to the above prices.

Coupe and Convertible base prices released earlier this week are as follows:
Coupe - $40,805 (an increase of $525 over 2001) and Convertible - $47,330 ( an increase of $525 over 2001). As mentioned above, these prices do not include the destination charge of $645. This information leads us to believe that the options and option packages prices did not increase.

You can tell the 2001 Model Year is wrapping up as production numbers are coming in fast and furious . . . what a FABULOUS year Corvette has had!! The 2001 C5 is certainly, as Dave Hill says, "the Best Vette Yet!" For final production numbers on Bowling Green Metallic (91U) and Navy Blue Metallic (28U) . . . and we do mean FINAL – as these two colors have been discontinued and will not be built in the 2002 Model Year . . .

The statements can be attributed to Wil Cooksey, plant manager of GM’s Bowling Green vehicle assembly center.

Corvette has had an outstanding year winning top industry awards such as Automobile of the Year from Automobile Magazine and "America’s Best" from AutoWeek. Today’s announcement from J.D. Power and Associates that Corvette is the segment leader in the premium sports category reinforces Corvette’s position as America’s favorite sports car. Corvette’s continued success is due to our plant’s dedicated and talented workforce. It takes everyone working together as a team to continuously satisfy our customers. We are very proud of our plant’s accomplishments and how Corvette performs in today’s marketplace. FULL GM PRESS RELEASE

We have received numerous emails from many of you "itching" to get the scoop on 2002 production! We are happy to announce that we have received OFFICIAL word from our "friends in high places" concerning the Start Up of the 2002 Model Year production schedule as it pertains to the first few weeks. Members, see MOHN

As all of you know, the Registry is viewed worldwide. One of our European friends forwarded us this very interesting summary of an article in the May 2, 2001 issue of the German car magazine Auto Motor und Sport. It mentions that GM is in the process of redesigning their engine line up -- primarily designed for trucks -- to include the ability to de-activate some cylinders in order to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. The magazine claims that, GM will as part of the "scaleable engine block" program (modify engines ranging from 4.7 liters to 6.0 liters). This new design will be used in various GM models. It goes on to mention that the Corvette will be offered with a new 6.0 liter engine featuring three valves per cylinder pumping out 450 hp as early as fall 2001.

We at the Registry doubt that Fall 2001 is the correct timeline, but the rest of the story matches up with previous rumors of a 6.0-liter engine, perhaps for the C6.

Members who attended the Birthday Bash . . . it looks like we are the "extras" in an upcoming SpeedVision special on Corvettes and racing! The video crew was in the plant on Friday, April 20, during the C5 Registry Birthday Bash activities.

wins American Exotics Comparison Test . . .
Edmunds.com, a leading consumer resource for automotive information, recently proclaimed the Corvette Z06 the winner of the "American Exotics Comparison Test."

The test was part of an extensive online video and text report that also featured the Dodge Viper GTS ACR and the Ford SVT Mustang Cobra R. Each vehicle was tested under normal road conditions and at a racetrack, and evaluated according to such criteria as performance, features, price, functionality and subjective observations by the road test editors.
Members . . . . Edmunds just found out what every Z06 owner already knew!
