The 1969 Corvette Manta Ray Visits the LeMay Museum

The Manta Ray joined two other historical Corvettes (Mako Shark, and the Stingray Racer) this past weekend to kick off the 60 Years of Corvette exhibit at the LeMay's America's Car Museum. This is a car you rarely hear about but I was quite interesting in it's own right. I was surprised to see the many interesting innovations such as the "panic braking" lights and the interesting "space age"interior that reminded me of the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey.

The 1959 Stingray Racer Visits the LeMay Museum

What a special opportunity it was to see the 1959 Stingray racer up close. It is a unique car that is deeply engrained in Corvette history. It was also the inpiration for the second generation Corvette. It was definitively the highlight of LeMay's America's Car Museum 60 Years of 'Vette celebration. Also on display was the Mako Shark and the Manta Ray. Next stop for this trio is the 2013 Pebble Beach Concour D'Elegance!
