  • Disguising A C5 Corvette

    GM’s “Master Of Disguise” have been hiding next generation Corvettes in plain sight for a quite a while. I think we are going to be truly shocked when we see the C8 at its reveal, all of us wondering, “how did we miss that,” or “wow, much better than I thought the rear fascia would look like!”

    GM’s “Masters of Disguise,” my name for the very small team of dedicated GM staff who do the camo-hiding for all new GM vehicles, had a very interesting task years ago, that is hiding the C5 within a Camaro. As you can see, as presented by NCM’s Curator Derek Moore in one of his wonderful “Moore Mondays” YouTube videos about some aspect of what is within the Museum, he just created this video of how within a 4th gen Camaro, was hidden the Corvette C5 mule —with a mule being defined as a “test of concept” first step in generating the next Corvette generation (or other GM brand new vheicle)..

    Before getting to Derek’s video, let us take a peak back at the C8’s first mule, seen four years ago hidden by GM within a Holden Ute.

    Thanks Derek for this fun video on the hiding of the C5 mule; I know I will be re-visiting this specific NCM exhibit at next month’s BASH.

    And for those who wish to see more of Derek’s videos, especially if you can not get to the National Corvette Museum in the near future, here is the Moore Monday’s Channel list.

    For those who enjoy GM Master of Disguise videos, here’s one on how the current generation Camaro was disguised by this same GM team.

    We will be guessing on this one and the renders can only come so close to the concealed nuisance.
