1983 Seminar The Whole Story Revealed

The One and Only 1983 Corvette is a special car shrouded in mystery. Why is it the only one and how it was spared when all of the others were crushed has been the subject of speculation, rumors, mythos and legend. Now the people who were there are finally being gathered together in one place to share with us the definitive history of the rarest Corvette of them all. Starting with an overview of the changes and challenges involved in the evolution of the fourth generation Corvette, along with the effort to save this car and its journey to the National Corvette Museum, this panel will share their memories and open the floor to questions from you.

Our panel is being assembled now with a list of participants to be posted soon. If you have a connection to the 1983 Corvette please contact us about joining the discussion.
