Among the scrum of people around the new Corvettes at NAIAS, and at the offsite reveal the night before, were Corvette Club members, who paid some $1200 (for two) to be present for the historic happening. With their matching black shirts–with cool Stingray logo on the back collar–they were easy to spot in the crowd.
We caught up with two: Teresa Hart and Mary Nist. Nist made the trek from New Jersey; Hart, who moved from California to work at the Corvette museum, came up from Bowling Green. Was it worth it? “I’ve never seen a car unveiled before,” said Hart. “It was very exciting.”
“It was something we’re going to talk about for a long time,” added Nist. “It’s going to make a lot of our friends jealous.”
