Cape Kennedy Corvette Club
Alan Shepard with his 1962 Corvette.
The relationship between astronauts and Corvettes goes back to the beginning of the Mercury program. To this day, some employees at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Kennedy Space Center drive Corvettes.
Members of the Cape Kennedy Corvette Club will be the guest speakers Monday night at the monthly meeting of the Air Force Space & Missile Museum docents. Although this is a meeting for the docents, the public is welcome to attend the lecture.
The meeting is at the museum's History Center and begins at 7:00 PM with administrative business. The lecture begins about 7:30 PM.
To get to the History Center ... From SR-528 "Beachline" take the Terminal A exit at Port Canaveral to go north on SR-401. After you enter Cape Canaveral Air Force Station property — but before the security gate — you'll see a traffic light at Poseidon with a red and white Navaho missile on the corner. Turn right onto Poseidon and then quickly turn left onto Space Port Way.
You'll see signs for Space Florida and the SpaceX Launch Control Center. The History Center is behind SpaceX.
