I know I am going to get flamed here but I have to say it. I have no probelm at all with the NCM making some money to keep the dream alive but if this Z06 comes in at 70k the NCM stands to make 180 thousand dollars off this raffle. Were not curing cancer here. This is getting a little greedy I think. If you spend $500 on a ticket they should send some free tickets to get in or something. Let the flames begin. :) :) :)

P.S. Where is my credit card. :thumb:

I agree. Raffles are held to raise money for a special cause (children with cancer and such). Is that the case here?

Have you ever been to the NCM and seen what they have done to preserve the Corvette heritage. All of the money to keep this great place going is thru donations and fund raising. I pi$$ more than $500 away and think nothing of it or don't remember even what it went towards. A 1 in 500 chance of owning a new Z for $500, i'll take those odds any day. I buy every raffle ticket they sell during the year for their Vette give aways. Ask the people who win one if they think the NCM is gouging them. They are in the process of building on to the NCM to make it larger and better, that takes big $$'s. I know Zippy can explain better than i have, but IMO, it is a worthy cause. Is it a cure for cancer, no, but Vettes are near and dear to our hearts and the people who buy the raffle tickets, do it out of love for the Marque.

Jack, I respect your opinion. I was only asking out of curiosity... I don't mean to offend anyone on this board. Also, you guys know more about the museum than I would know.

No prob Alex, just trying to give a little insight on the NCM. I know Zippy will Chime in, he is the man, when it comes to answers about the workings within the NCM.

Offering a raffle featuring the newest addition to Corvette’s family is quite exciting,” states NCM Executive Director, Wendell Strode. “The 1 in 500 odds make this a very special raffle, and combined with the limited quantity of Z06’s that will be available for purchase, this is one of the most exciting raffles we have ever offered.”
So which is it going to be?

20% total C6 produciton - or Limited Production forthe C6 Z06?

We all have the freedom to choose which organizations and charities we support or if we support any at all. My primary choices, in no particular order, are NCM, American Cancer Society, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, American Heart Association. All of my choices have a personal basis and many of you know why I have chosen each. A $500 raffle ticket is definitely pricey but this fundraiser is for a pricey project -- the museum expansion. The raffle is only an option. Personally, Mrs. Zippy and I always have a fantastic time at museum events -- Corvette people are the greatest!

Ok guys I can't really afford to spend that much money. Since Z06Wish didn't win last year, I want to be next on the list to be sponsored. I really, really, really, REALLY want this Z. So who is willing to buy me a ticket. Just one is all I'm asking for. :D

We could each contribute one dollar to buy a single ticket for the forum. This would help the cause. And if we win, we could make it the fest 'beater' car. We could each get a chance to 'drive it like we stole it' at the DE and the fest. Of course JC would get to keep the car. :thumb:
