The 100th anniversary of any given occasion is a monumental event, and for Corvette, we have a feeling that milestone in 2053 will spark a grand celebration. We’re a few years off yet, but preparation for the centennial anniversary has already started with Mid America Motorworks announcing that they will seal a time capsule at the 2012 Corvette FunFest to be opened in 41 years. What’s even cooler is that they want your help to fill it.
The Corvette’s 60th anniversary will be celebrated this year at the Mid America Motorworks Corvette FunFest in September and with that celebration will be the sealing of the Corvette time capsule to be opened at the Corvette’s 100th anniversary celebration in 2053. Inside the time capsule, Mid America Motorworks wants to put rare Corvette items and predictions for the future of the model with the help of Corvette enthusiasts.
They’re currently looking for rare Corvette memorabilia, from key chains to owner’s manuals, as well as renderings of future Corvettes to include in the time capsule and they want your help to get them.
If you have any rare Corvette items and would be willing to part with them, at least for the next 41 years, the Corvette parts and accessories company wants to hear from you.
If you have something you think should be included in the time capsule, send Mid America Motorworks an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, contact information, a brief description of your item, a picture of it, and its dimensions. The items chosen to be included in the time capsule will be announced the last week of August. The time capsule will then be sealed on-site at the Mid America Motorworks Corvette FunFest running from September 13th through the 16th and will be placed in an exhibition monument where it will remain until 2053.
The Corvette’s 60th anniversary is an amazing milestone and the perfect time to plan for the biggest milestone to come for the American sports car. No matter if you’ll be gone by 2053 or old and grey, this is the perfect opportunity to be a part of the future 100th anniversary celebration.
