Ceremonial Bill Signing Held at Corvette Plant

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear visited the Corvette Plant in Bowling Green, Ky. on Tuesday to ceremonially sign House Bill 104, which designates the Corvette as the official state sports car of Kentucky.

"You know it's an icon, it's known all over the world and the amazing thing for us is every one of them is made right here in Bowling Green, Kentucky. We want to brag about that, we want people to know it. And I think us declaring it's the State's official sports car is going to help even more all over the world," said Gov. Beshear.

This week's question was: What celebrity drove the 50th anniversary Corvette pace car and what year was it?

Congratulations to Jennifer Garrett of Bowling Green, KY! She correctly identified Jim Caviezel as driving the 50th Anniversary Pace Car in the 2002 Indy 500! And, by the way, the Corvette Museum has one of the Indy Pace Car replicas! Jennifer scored a Corvette t-shirt and passes to the Museum!

Thursday, June 10th this Grand Sport was stolen out of the driveway of the owner's house. The owner, Margie Love, had pulled into her driveway in her other car around 10pm and interrupted a burglary of her home. The robber(s) had found the keys to the Grand Sport and used it as a getaway car, causing a massive amount of damage in the process.

Only 1,000 Admiral Blue Grand Sports were made in 1996, so if you spot one in the South Florida area, call the police and have them check it out. Read more on the Corvette Blogger site.


TOMORROW, June 25, is "Drive Your Corvette to Work Day"... and while you are at it, why not drive your Corvette on over to Bowling Green, Ky.! Izzi Bendall of Autoweek.com has some great suggestions of things to do and places to eat while you're here... and of course, your visit won't be complete without a tour through the National Corvette Museum, some shopping in the Corvette Store, and lunch in the Corvette Cafe!
