The Petersen pays tribute to the father of the Corvette, Zora Duntov
The Petersen Automotive Museum is paying tribute to the father of the Corvette, GM engineer Zora Duntov, this weekend.
Saturday evening there is a VIP reception that will grant attendees access to the 2020 Corvette Stingray in the flesh. In addition to seeing the C8 live, attendees will have a chance to mix and mingle with Corvette community members and #influencers.
Sunday morning folks can join Constellation Rally on a drive from Pasadena to the Petersen, where the museum will hold a Corvette-themed Cruise-In. I won’t be able to attend due to my monthly Carcadia at Route 66 cars and coffee — but I will be encouraging our regulars with ‘Vettes to make the drive.

- Sunday, July 28 at 7:30 a.m. – Three iconic Corvettes from the Petersen collection will take part in the rally
- Sunday, July 28 at 9:00 a.m.– the Corvette cruise-in at the Petersen will feature a panel discussion on Zora Arkus-Duntov, featuring Harley Early III, Doug Fehan and others, in addition to a historic display of Corvettes
