VW And Astronaut’s Corvette Go On Show In Washington DC This September





Two very different vehicles are to be displayed in Washington DC this September, as part of the Fifth Annual Cars at the Capital exhibition. on September 12-19, Apollo 12 Astronaut Alan Bean’s 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be shown on the walkway between the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum and the National Gallery of Art.

Then, on September 20-26, the 1966 Volkswagen Deluxe Station Wagon owned by Esau and Janie B Jenkins, pioneers of the 1960s civil rights movement, will replace the Corvette in the glass enclosure organized by the Historic Vehicle Association (HVA) every year.

Both are free to view, and are being commemorated and recorded as part of the HVA’s National Historic Vehicle Register program, in partnership with the US Department of the Interior’s Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) to be permanently archived in the Library of Congress.
