Attentive visitors to the National Corvette Museum discover a direct connection from the museum to another organization entirely. The story is simple, but often overlooked.
Many men from the National Corvette Restorers Society had possessed the dream that was fulfilled in 1994 when the museum opened. Terry McManmom was the first to move on the dream way back in 1984. At least four other individuals were also key in the creation of this fabulous facility: Ray Battaglini, Jon Brookmeyer, Dan Gale, and Darrel Bowlin.
According to their website: "Formed in 1974, the National Corvette Restorers Society is a non-profit hobby group of 15,000+ families dedicated to the restoration, preservation, history, and enjoyment of Corvettes made from the model years 1953 through 1991.
Anyone seeking to restore a vintage Vette will want to be a part of this fine organization. Their resources are invaluable. The N.C.R.S. display reminds visitors to the museum of this important tie.
