Corvette Hall of Fame Announcement

"The Corvette Hall of Fame was created by the National Corvette Museum Board of Directors in 1998.  The purpose of the award is to confer the highest honor and recognition upon the most influential individuals in the history of the Corvette.  The award recognizes those people who have made significant contributions in their respective fields, each having reached the highest level of accomplishment.  Inductees must also possess the highest standards of integrity and character to positively reflect and enhance the prestige of the Corvette and the National Corvette Museum."

Thus reads the Recommendation Form for potential honorees.

The 2007 recipients will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on August 31, 2007, just one part of the Museum’s 13th Anniversary Corvette Celebration.  The three being honored this year are: world class Corvette racer Doug Hooper, Corvette C4 consultant and specialist Gordon Killebrew, and GM designer and stylist Carl Renner.

Renner is know for being a part of the original team that, under Harley Earl, created the three show car variations: Corvette, Corsair, and Nomad.  The Nomad is pictured twice in this posting. Killebrew is known as the "Guru of the C4 Corvettes."  Hooper was first to bring international attention to Corvette racing prowess.
