The official 2nd day of the
National Corvette Museum's 5th Anniversary Celebration started early.
After everyone arrived on the grounds, the activities began.. Seminars
were the first order of the day. In
this seminar, Corvette / Camaro Brand Manager Jim Campbell discussed
changes for the 2000 Chevrolet model year, focusing on of course
Corvette. He discussed changes in the car, and the two new colors. Took
questions from those in attendance, and suggestions for new options and
colors. He mentioned that the compass, discussed at Carlisle had been
suggested and already the paper work was in the works.
seminar, facilitated by the C5 Registry Director
Dan Adovasio, Covered
changes in the F45 suspension option for model year 2000. Speakers were
Mike Neal from GM and Darren Dillinger
from the Delphi Group.
While the seminars were going on, there
were plenty of other events to attend.
There was the Autocross at the plant parking lot, and Drag racing at
Beach Bend Raceway to name two. C5 Registry
Member Barry Landry. Took
his C5 to the strip during the heat of the day, and despite melting his
tires (That's rubber in the photo, not tar) he still managed to crank
out a 13.4 second run. Not Bad!
of course, there was the celebrity autograph tent. A long line formed to
get the autographs of the Corvette and
GM celebrities in attendance. But
some registry members didn't have to stand in line, and most dropped by
theC5 Registry Tent.
these photos, you'll notice Jim Campbell and
Ernest is that lucky man with the envious
job of starting every C5 that comes off the
line. Ernest graciously volunteered his time to help the NCM during the
event... But one gets the feeling he really likes these events!
