National Corvette Museum 2021

Rat Fink Collection

Being a Corvette fan and owner, my wife and I have visited the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green KY several times. In the past, I have always felt a little let down because of the lack of diversity of the collection on display. That was not a problem on our most recent visit. There were a lot of high quality vehicles on display, plus a temporary Big Daddy Ed Roth Rat Fink display.

I have far more photos of the Museum’s collection than I can post in just one article. This post will simply be an overview of the Museum plus the Museum Delivery of the new 2021 Corvette C8’s that was taking place during our visit. Future articles will go into more detail on the prototype show car mid-engine designs over the years, historical Corvettes, Rat Fink cars and the Museum Delivery cars.

Corvette Museum Overview:

A few dioramas welcome you to the collection. These feature historical settings and some beautiful C1 Corvettes.

The variety of Corvettes (and other cars) in the Museum will keep your attention and make you want more.

After a breath taking collection of eclectic Corvettes comes the mind blowing Roth Rat Fink display. Roth changed the 50s/60s for all car folks.

One of the options for a buyer of a new Corvette is to take delivery of your new car at the Corvette Museum. Although we have seen Corvettes on display at the Museum awaiting their new owners, we have never visited when they were actually being delivered. It must be a tremendous thrill for the new owners. During our visit, there were approximately seven new C8 Corvettes prepped and waiting. Three had owners present being instructed on every detail of the car.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville 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 out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine 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. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. 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 working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
