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. CampbellIn 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.

Suspension Seminar


This 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.Barry's Melted Tires  


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!

Autograph Tent


And 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.

Ernest Foote


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!
