Corvette Museum, Quick Tour and Video

CorvetteMuseum2

If you are any where near Bowling Green and you are a car guy or gal you have to visit the holly ground of the Corvette Museum. We are outside Nashville and it is a short hour and a half away. I recently jumped into the ZO6 and buzzed up the Interstate for another visit.

I always get goose bumps when I enter the displays. Memories flood my brain. Suddenly it is the mid-sixties and there is a visions in my brain. There is the straight axle Corvette fishtailing away from a stop light in Ottumwa, Iowa; the Route 66 TV series with Todd and Buzz begins to play; there is a memory of my first Corvette and my buddies cruising through the campus at Iowa State University on a spring day (3 guys in a Corvette, try that sometime); there is an image of a friend going full speed into a guard rail at a 1/4 asphalt track in Omaha during a Club event; there is winning an ISCA first place award for my 63 Split Window and there are lots of smiles tied to taking my kids for rides when they were little.

As you stroll through the Museum I am sure you will also have happy flash backs of Corvettes even if you have never owned or driven one. They are an American automotive icon. The Corvette is America’s Sports Car but it is so much more to many of us; it is a symbol of American pride, American attitude and American success.

If you want to see more on my tour of the Museum including the video go to the On Tour page.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys.
