This was a special presentation of the
by Kirk Bennion, Chief Exterior Designer.
Leaving home. I picked up Fern Gravel in
Portland and met up with Mark Collins,
Pres. of Gate City Corvette Club, on I-95 in Newton MA.
The roads in Maine and upper MA were wet, only
because of a liberal dash of salt!
We arrived well before the first presentation @
10:00. Good thing: I was able
to help Kirk and
Museum Curator Chuck Tramontana get the laptop
to talk to the projector.
Kirk brought some ZR1 development mockup pieces
for a silent auction
to benefit the National Corvette Museum.
This was the actual car that was first seen at
the Detroit Auto Show in January.
It was voted "Best In Show".
I LOVE the "Cyber Gray" on that car!
Kirk also displayed some of his development
drawings for the car.
Kirk is a very entertaining and passionate
He obviously loves his work and does it well!
Here's a clip of part of his presentation,
