Heartbeat In The Heartland 2005 TourFor over 50 years, the Corvette has been recognized as America's Sports Car. The passion it generates with owners and enthusiasts is unequaled by any other automobile. The Heartbeat In The Heartland Tour 2005 is a traveling exhibit to introduce and showcase the Corvette and the passion enthusiasts have for the Corvette and the National Corvette Museum.

The Tour's journey will include an array of activities, including presentations and displays, an overview and history of the National Corvette Museum and its history and purpose, dinners, and gatherings. The Tour will excite and enlighten Corvette lovers at every stop.

This year, part of the Heartbeat Tour will include the Corvette C5-R as part of the tour's traveling showcase. The C5-R Corvette is a monumental piece of Corvette's 2004 undefeated winning season and we encourage everyone to come out and see this exciting piece of Corvette Racing's legacy. This exhibit piece is made possible by the generosity of GM Racing.

Corvette enthusiasts, Corvette clubs/chapters, Chevrolet dealers, NCM members, ambassadors, employees, and supporters will participate in the tour activities at various location points. This combined participation will provide a true Corvette show on wheels.

The Museum is over 21,500 members strong. Yet there are thousands of Corvette enthusiasts and owners who know little about the Museum, its mission, or its location. The main purpose of the Heartbeat in the Heartland Tour 2005 is to take the Museum to America's heartland and permit people to experience the Museum in their own community.

All Corvette enthusiasts are asked to join the Tour at any of the stopover locations listed online. For additional information or questions regarding The Heartbeat in the Heartland Tour, subscribe to the Heartbeat mailing list by sending a blank e-mail to:
