Marty Stout Joins One Acre Club

If you were to have some extra money all of a sudden, you might buy a car, go on a trip or shopping spree. But not Marty Stout. Marty decided to take his money and join the One Acre Club.

"I've always thought, 'I wish there was a way to be a part of the Motorsports Park Project' and the opportunity just presented itself." Marty said.

Marty works at the GM Corvette Assembly Plant and added that with us having the plant and Museum here in Bowling Green, we really need the Motorsports Park to be a part of it.

"I liked the idea of a Motorsports Park from the first day I heard about it," Marty said. "It's fitting we now have the chance for a track here because everyone that participates at other tracks (like Spring Mountain and Bondurant) recommends it's a gotta do thing. To be able to do that here means a lot." he added.

Marty is a Lifetime Member of the Museum and owns a 2004 Coupe. Thanks to Marty for joining the club, and learn more about how you can be a part online here.

Is Your Car Ready for the Winter?

NCM's Insurance Agent Adam Boca has a few tips to get your car ready for the cold weather season:

1. Make sure you have the right oil for colder temperatures. As oil gets cold, it gets thick and doesn't always keep your engine lubricated properly. Check your owner's manual for guidance on what kind is recommended.

2. Can you see clearly? Wiper blades work effectively for about a year. Is it time for new ones? While you are at it, fill up your windshield washer fluid (don't use water as it will freeze).

3. Check your tire pressure to get the best traction. You will usually lose one pound per square inch when the temperature drops by 10 degrees.

4. Aim for a 50-50 mix of antifreeze and water inside your radiator to prevent it from freezing.

5. Prepare an emergency kit including a blanket, extra boots/gloves/warm clothes, ice scraper, flashlight, flares, jumper cable, first aid kit.

6. Keep the gas tank as full as you can to prevent the gas lines from freezing.

7. See if we can help you save money on your collector car insurance! Most of you probably have a Corvette or other vehicle that you store for the winter. We can insure them! See how we can save you money here.

New SCVNGR Hunt Available

The National Corvette Museum now offers a fun "SCVNGR" hunt anyone visiting the museum can participate in!

SCVNGR is a game about going places, doing challenges and earning points. The game is played from a custom app on iPhone and Android as well as via SMS. It is not a text message scavenger hunt. Instead of riddles to guide you to a place, SCVNGR concentrates on completing challenges at a particular location. We offer a number of opportunities to earn points and redeem them for prizes. Be sure to download this free app before your next visit to the Museum and learn more online here!
