    Visitors will get an extra special treat September 5 through 9th when they visit the Museum. Sideswipe - the Chevrolet Corvette concept vehicle character from the new ?Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,? movie is on display on Corvette Boulevard and will be unveiled Saturday. Sideswipe is a sleek concept created by Corvette Designers and is influenced by the original Sting Ray race car, introduced in 1959.

    ?In honor of the 50th anniversary of the original Corvette Sting Ray concept racer, GM Design created an all new Sting Ray Vision that is a homage to the original 1959 concept and continues the long tradition of Corvette Concept Cars,? said Harlan Charles, Chevrolet Corvette Marketing Manager. ?This futuristic Sting Ray vision of America?s performance icon was featured as Sideswipe in Transformers 2,? he added.

    The concept, along with the four other Chevrolet Transformer Autobots, debuted at the Chicago Auto Show in February. The DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures film opened in the United States on June 26. The car is on display as part of the National Corvette Museum?s 15th Anniversary Celebration event.

    Concept cars like that often have like a 1-gallon tank---just enough to roll off the truck, film 30 secs of footage, and roll back on the truck.
