This was a special presentation of the new ZR1
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 speaker.
He obviously loves his work and does it well!
