Corvette Forum Cruise-In Brings Camaraderie to Bowling Green Next Week

If you are fun loving and enjoy camaraderie then the Corvette Forum Cruise-In is the event for you!  We've added a new road tour to our repertory - a trip to Nashville's CAO Cigar Manufacturing for a tour, sampling and lunch. Other favorite road tours will take you to Heaven Hill Bourbon Heritage Center, the Coca Cola Museum and Barren River.

Seminars on preparing and detailing your Corvette, the NCM Motorsports Park, an introduction of new GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant Manager Bob Parcell and a walk around of the 2011 Corvette will keep you informed.  Gordon Killebrew will be on hand with his 'Drive Through Troubleshooting' while other on-site activities include Scavenger Hunt, Peoples Choice Car Show, and Golf Cart Autocross.

A free scenic guided road tour, and poker run round out this event. Check out the complete agenda here and on-site registration is still available!

Gathering Photos Now Available Online

Whether you were unable to come gather with us last week, or if you were right there rubbing elbows with our record number of VIPs - we've got some great scenes from the annual C4/ZR-1 Gathering for you to check-out and even order prints!

Visit our Smug Mug Gallery online. We've also posted more photos from the C5/C6 Bash!

This week's question was: In what movie does the Corvette owner valet his car and say 'Keep it out of the sun. I don't want the paint to fade.'

Congratulations to Michael Keib of Wallingford, CT. He correctly identified the Vin Diesel flick, xXx. Michael scored a Corvette prize!
