Wow kadl18 how did you get asked to have your C4 added on display in a museum?  Is that just a short term exhibit for the Corvettes?  I was just looking over the website http://speyer.technik-museum.de/en and I have to say I'm jealous as that is an amazing place!  They have vintage cars, firetrucks, a mega collection of aviation history including a space orbiter and  even a 747 jumbo jet, and large maritime collection including a u-boat submarine!  My next trip overseas will definitely include that place!  Having your C4 Corvette inside there is quite an honor.

Hi again!

Thank you for your comment, epohdivad! Here in the land of Porsche a Corvette is always an eyecatcherCool    
Most of the Vette drivers are organised in clubs or at least in the german speaking www.corvetteforum.de
As my 94 is in pristine conditon with only 18 kmls on it, i was asked by JR a well known forum member if i would
like to give my C4 from October til April to technik museum Speyer. If you plan to visit Germany, you should
also visit the sister museum http://sinsheim.technik-museum.de/en located just 20 miles away from SpeyerThumbs Up  

Best Regards from Germany
Thomas (kadl18)

Been driving our C4s all winter, even in the rain we've occasionally gotten.  Despite California's political downfalls (in my view,) the weather is fantastic.  Although I miss the east coast sometimes, I don't miss shoveling snow and having my driving choices limited.  I hope you folks in the less temperate areas have been able to enjoy your cars at least on occasion this winter.

Mine has been sitting on a battery tender since Dec 11th when I had foot surgery and finally started her last evening.  Can't wait to drive.  We still have about 3" of snow on the ground and expecting 2-4 again tonight.  Temps supposed to be in the 40-50 range next week maybe get a chance soon.

Unless I can find a way to hook up a snow plow to the front, she's been sitting under cover waiting for just a few days of decent, no salt on the ground weather.

epohdivad, 
When you are going overseas, why don't you make a Corvette tour along some museums or collections. 
Here in the Netherlands, neighbour of Germany there is a private collection of at least 90 Corvettes, with all types and years in mint condition. The owner, Andre Boer, will be proud to lead you around with great storys about the cars.
The website is   www.dutchcorvettecollection.nl    Please, look around at this site, it is in dutch, but click on the pics and don't forget the middle video.

Greetings from the Netherlands

Henry Mulder.

My Rosie stays in the garage until a nice day happens with no crud on the roads. She gets the best care I can give her.

Mine is sitting in the garage under a car cover with a snowblower sitting in front of it awaiting the next snowstorm!  I couldn't get either out the alley due to the ruts in the ice and snow between the garage and the end of the alley.Ouch
Until spring finially breaks, I'm not going to risk it or the T-Bird and trying to get them out early.
