Corvette Action Center
In 1988, a special customer support team was started at the Corvette manufacturing facility in Bowling Green, Kentucky, called the "Corvette Action Center". This team was designed to provide technical information directly to Corvette customers and dealerships. It consisted of Danny Hawkins, Harold White, Sonny Kilgo, Gordon Killebrew, Jerry Watts and Ed O'Keefe. By the time the Corvette Action Center was shut down around 1995, the Center was receiving approximately 200 calls per day via the toll-free phone number.
CorvetteActionCenter.com started out as a small New Hampshire based Corvette web site and has been under development since January of 2000. The site actually went live on the web on April 1, 2000 and our Community Forums were started September 16, 2000.
The prime directive of the Corvette Action Center is to promote the awareness, preservation and enjoyment of the Chevrolet Corvette and help educate owners and enthusiasts by providing a professional and reliable online source of Corvette news and information.
We consider the Corvette Action Center to be a major informational repository and in a "continuous state of improvement". The information contained within is constantly being updated in order to insure that it is reliable and consistent. The engineering of the site is also under a constant state of development in order to make room for future additions and to insure that site navigation and informational access is quick and intuitive.
"I never thought I would acknowledge a website in a book, but the Corvette Action Center site is exceptional and is clearly run by enthusiasts with a real and deep interest in the Corvette. In a virtual world dominated by the C5, the CAC is very strong on the C4. I am deeply indebted to them for permission to use their tables of C4 statistics, the important RPO numbers, and in particular their research on the no-cost option codes that appear on the Service Parts Identification Label, and I recommend their fascinating website."
