1993 "Ruby Red" 40th Anniversary Coupe
The guy who originally bought this car sold his mint 1970 'Vette when his daughter was born. Unbeknownst to him, his wife started saving her change from the grocery store, and surprised him with this new Anniversary Edition Corvette on the day their daughter left for college. Eventually, they donated it to the museum, saying, “We could never sell her and with this donation we will be able to visit her whenever we so choose.”
1962 Corvette Convertible
You know those people you hated in high school that had a shiny new Corvette? This was more or less the original, bought new by David Donoho shortly after he turned 16 with money he'd saved up. He kept it his entire life, always watched the skies and sped home the instant it looked like rain, and left it to the museum upon his death, so it would "be well maintained by those who would protect it."
