              NCM Bash remodeling. Thanks to Katie Ellison, NCM Marketing and Communications Director, we have learned that the remodeling of the admissions and gateway areas of the Museum will be done before the BASH. Nice to have more wall removed, opening up that space, giving us more vehicle display and more educational areas.

                  Special BASH product reveal? Here is an interesting little quote. Thank you 16/C7Z. If you read the below and wonder, “who is Jeff Strausser,” he is the “Corvette Brand Quality Manager.”

                  Originally posted by 16/C7Z
                  Jeff Strausser asked me if I was going to the bash this year back at Carlisle. I said possibly.

                  His words "you'll be very glad if you do!
                  At the same time we need to consider this in terms of that conversation was last August and a lot has changed since then. Maybe something???
