Default C8 at NCM

Does anyone know if the National Corvette Museum usually gets an example of a new model soon after it is revealed? I was planning on stopping there on my cross-country drive the first week of August and would love it if there was a C8 on display.

I hope so. I'll be passing through there the last week of July.

Unfortunately as of right now the only time we will have a C8 on display is during our 25th Anniversary Celebration August 28-31. Outside of those dates we have not been promised a car for display. Registration for our event closes on Thursday so if you'd like to come be sure to sign up!

Strange they would not leave one at the museum.

Will the factory tour be opened up after the 25th NMC Anniversary?

At this time, no they are not planning to be open for tours. But if that changes we will be sure to notify registered participants.

We will be stopping by Aug 9 on our way to Florida, just to make sure you don't have one sitting around somewhere

We did our Buyer's Tour and NCM delivery just two years ago in May (one of the last days to do a buyers tour) for our 2017 Stingray vert and the NCM guys, (Shane) and girls (Lori) were great. Thanks again, Jim

The NCM will soon have R8C cars to look at.

It will be awhile. First someone has to order them, then they have to build them. Maybe December at the earliest.
