  • Public, Ticketed C8 HT Convertible Events Announced Oct. 3rd At Kennedy Space Center

    Unless someone has hacked the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex web site, the public may purchase tickets to C8 HT convertible public events on Thursday, October 3rd at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM as shown in the following link.

    These two events follow, at the same location, the night-before’s 6:45 PM (EST) private, GM invite only, reveal of the C8 HT convertible. That initial debut reveal, we have learned from GM, will not be live-streamed, with attendees being GM-invited, special media to attend. Consistent with past new model, especially new-generation, Corvette reveals, we expect GM to release during or shortly after that event, an official HT convertible press release with GM pictures, and this time we also expect a GM pre-produced video of the HT top in complete operation to be linked within that press release.
    Lastly, our expectations are that there would be additional event video taken by and released shortly afterwards, by some in attendance.

    Both MECF Co-Founders, Keith Cornett and I have been invited to attend the GM-invite Oct. 2nd event, he specifically for the CorvetteBlogger site, and me for MidEngineCorvetteForum. We will additionally post the pictures we take during and immediately after the reveal.

    I am also aware of a very few non-media individuals invited to the private Oct. 2nd event by those individuals’ with special connections with unique Chevrolet dealers. Those few have individually contacted me, but do not want to be publicly identified.

    In the interim, perhaps those in the Florida area might wish to see if they could purchase tickets to the following, Thursday, October 3rd events, and if successful (or not), please post in this thread.

    Stay tuned as more unfolds.

          Tickets with taxes for non-seniors are $66.98; but might this discount code help?

              Our ever reliable Jag, our Events Correspondent, just called the Kennedy Visitor Center site and confirmed this is happening, that all one needs to do is to buy a general admission ticket for October 3rd.

              But might they later sell out, so please act fast to get yours if you are interested!!!

                Oct 03, 2019 | 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM Rocket Garden

                Start your engines! The reveal of the 2020 Stingray convertible is coming to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on October 3, 2019 and we invite you to join and hear from Chevrolet experts and a special astronaut guest.

                Two presentations will include the “reveal” of Chevrolet’s 2020 Corvette Stingray Convertible and showcase the car’s legacy with United States astronauts. A guest speaker from Chevrolet will share information on the Chevrolet cars and what is new with the 2020 Corvette.

                Presentations will begin at 11:00 AM and again at 2:00 PM under a shaded tent in the Rocket Garden. Chevrolet will also distribute posters to guests throughout the day. This event is included with daily admission.

                The Corvette Convertible was first introduced in 1953. According to the National Corvette Museum, Ed Cole, President of General Motors and Jim Rathmann Chevrolet of Melbourne, Florida offered the astronauts a special Chevrolet plan in which they were given the use of any Chevrolet automobile for a year at the very nominal cost of $1. For many astronauts, Corvette was their car of choice.
