We found a very cool detail on our used Z06, an official sticker on the driver side B-pillar confirming this 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was picked up by its first owner at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. This honor is available to all new Corvette buyers as long as they add option “R8C” to their car when it is ordered (and cough up $990). The special shipping code is 184590 and ensures your car will be sent to the Museum for pick up.
Museum Delivery would be a very cool thing to do as the folks at the museum make the event very special. They have a marquee with the new owner’s name up in lights when you arrive. You get a tour of the Corvette factory across the street, a balloon drop in a large room for your new car’s unveiling and a special plaque with your name, the car’s VIN, etc. Plus the special door jamb decal.
I toured the museum in 2012 when we were in Bowling Green for the Soap Box Derby National Derby Rally championships and we found this original 1963 Corvette Z06 with the number 38 on it.
Our Z06 was delivered to the museum, well before the sink hole of 2014 where eight Corvettes were swallowed by the earth. The 1963 Z06 and our Z06 both survived the sink hole (one due to its location in the museum, the other because it wasn’t there anymore). The real question is: can our Z06 survive Krider Racing?
