The National Corvette Museum, a pilgrimage hot spot for Corvette faithful, treats the vehicles it houses in the best way. That’s evident with the creation of its Vehicle Maintenance and Preservation Department.
At the helm of it all is Daniel Decker, an ASE certified gearhead with one amazing task: keep each Corvette running in tip-top shape. Decker works out of a retrofitted space, a Titan lift, fire-proof cabinets, a tool box donated by Snap-On Tools, up-to-date scanner, electrical and air ceiling drops, updated tools, an engine hoist, motor stand and thanks to Coats – a tire changer and balancer.
“Everything is more conveniently located and it helps with the flow of getting cars in, worked – on, and back out,” shared Daniel. “We’re able to do the basic maintenance things like oil changes and tire rotation as well as take care of more complex issues that arise.”
And for those curious to what Decker is doing, they can take a peak from behind the glass garage door. If Decker is feeling up to it, he even opens the door to invite museum goers in for a closer look, too.
The Vehicle Maintenance and Preservation Department was made possible by ongoing donations for the love of all things Corvette, and the NCM is proud to keep these pieces of history running.
