You can’t keep a good car down. These words were certainly put to the test last year when a sinkhole opened under the floor of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The February 12th disaster caused eight collectible Corvettes to fall into the sinkhole. Unfortunately, three have never been recovered, but the remaining five join a lineup of more than sixty other Corvettes that still remain at the National Corvette Museum. The museum is located right across from the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant and is open to the public. Tours are also available at the assembly plant for motor enthusiasts of all ages.
As a resident of Bowling Green KY, David Stewart has a great affinity for the Corvette. According to the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, every single Corvette currently produced in this country has been made in Bowling Green, KY. The Corvette was originally produced in Flint, MI, but was later moved to its current home in Kentucky. In fact, Kentucky residents love the Corvette so much, it is the official sports car of the commonwealth.
If you are a car enthusiast or history buff and want to see America’s favorite sports car, David Stewart and the rest of Bowling Green, KY encourage you check out the National Corvette Museum and Assembly Plant. The National Corvette Museum is open almost every day of the year (Easter, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day are the only the days it is closed), and it is not too expensive to check out. Admission to the museum is $10 for adults, $5 for children and $7 for seniors. If you want to get a better look at the plant itself, tours can be arranged for $7 a person.
There is nothing more American than a beautiful sports car on an open highway road, and Bowling Green, KY is proud to make a contribution to this slice of Americana with the Chevrolet Corvette.
