National Corvette Museum

From the Ambassador

The National Corvette Museum wants to be an outreach to all the clubs.  They would like to have an Ambassador from every club.  They want to be a source for information, training and enjoyment for the only true American Sports Car.

When you read through the Motor Sports Park site, they talk about the High Performance Driving Experience (HPDE) school, Autocross Experience, and more.  This track was created for all Corvette enthusiasts and for anyone else that has a passion for seeing what their cars can do. 

It’s also to provide a venue for national races to come to Bowling Green.  They are building garages, grand stands, control tower, gas station and more.  When the 25th Anniversary of the Museum comes up in 2019 and the Caravans from all over the country come together in celebration again, I hope to be part of it again and take my car out on the track.  

I was there for the initial opening in 2014 but there was so much to do and see that first time.  I did not have time to wait to get on the track.  The next time I go, that will be the first thing I do and everything else will take a back seat.  

Please check out the links above to the websites for the NCM and for the Motor Sports Park.

On the eighth day, God created Mid-Engined Corvette. Certain Mesoamerican cultures offered the still-beating hearts of human sacrifices to Mid-Engined Corvette. Medieval Europeans believed that Mid-Engined Corvette’s horn could cure all maladies. It is said that Kublai Khan kept in his personal zoo at Xanadu a Mid-Engined Corvette of exceptional splendor. The phrase “mid-engined Corvette” means “goat sucker” in Spanish, owing to the thing’s propensity to drink the blood of livestock. Inside the briefcase from Pulp Fiction? Mid-Engined Corvette.

Mid-Engined Corvette has always been with us, even when it totally didn’t exist. And short of a few concept vehicles over the decades, it has never existed beyond the realm of folklore, the occasional conspiracy theory, and the fever dreams of automotive journalists.

But as it is written, so it shall be. Mid-Engined Corvette is real, and you’ll see the official, genuine article next spring. And no, Chevy isn’t playing any games with the terminology: The engine will be bolted between the occupants and the rear wheels. Those expecting a carbon-fiber spaceship powered by an antimatter machine will be somewhat disappointed.
