Good morning everyone,
My 3LT, Z51 order is presently stuck in the dealer order status so the very distant delivery date, whatever it may be, is far out. While there is still time, I am thinks of taking a museum delivery. I have seen some very positive comments about the museum experience. Can someone please share the details from beginning to end? Looking for something more than the staff was great and the experience was well worth it. Does it still include the opportunity of seeing your car come off the line? Also how were you able to determine the timing and how soon - I do a fair amount of traveling for work so planning a trip to Bowling Green can be tricky.

The usual, it was a fantastic experience, etc.. If you haven't seen this site yet:

National Corvette Museum - Museum Delivery

But as to your questions:

No, you can not see your car come off the line, because all cars go into a two-week hold after completion before you can pick them up at the Museum. You can do a Buyers Tour (also through the Museum), in which they try their best to have you watch your car get assembled, but even then, it is clear that while every effort is made for you to see your car undergoing assembly, that there are no guarantees that you will actually see your own car being out together.

And here a great thread by one of our forum members re Buyers Tour:

http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/stingray-corvette-discussions/886-buyers-tour.html

As to timing, NCM Museum Delivery staff keep in touch with you are your car approaches its construction and when it is completed, calls you and give you a roughly two-week window for you to pick it up. They understand customers' timing needs, and will do everything they can to make your experience work for you -- understanding that they have no control over anything that happens, or doesn't happen, at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant.

The four great things about the Museum Delivery experience are: the best PDI quality control in the country, the presentation of your car including by Delivery Specialist who know Corvettes and have each done 40+ StingRay owner presentations, a tour of the Assembly Plant that is far more comprehensive than the public tours, and a guided tour of the National Corvette Museum (rated one of America's top five car Museum).

Here's a fun/informative thread on another forum member's recent Museum Delivery:

And if you still have questions that this thread doesn't answer over the next couple of days, call Lori (Delivery Supervisor) or Shane (Delivery Assistant) @ 1.800.53.VETTE. They will happily answer all your questions.

Thank you so much. My order has not yet been accepted by GM (Z-51 delay) so I have time to add the experience. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

I opted on it and took delivery on the 18th of November. First class experience from start to finish. Some of the facts from the tour is that a car takes 1.5 days on the line to complete there's noway to see your car built to completion. They produce about 16-18 per hour so there is extremely high quality control and oversight on the production line. Do it if you can-well worth the cost. View attachment IMG_2021a.jpg

On the 'personal' tour you get with your Museum delivery you get to see pretty much all of it. One of the main differences on the personal tour versus public tour is that you and your highly knowledgeable guide can spend as much time lingering at any point on the tour and ask as many questions as you would like, plus we seemed to go on a few routes in the factory that the public tour did not.
