Roy and Rosemary take delivery of their 2009 Z06 at the National Corvette Museum. This is an experience that every new Corvette owner should have. We also participated in the Buyers Tour to follow our Z06 every minute on the assembly line. What an experience that is. The Assembly Plant workers are so friendly and appreciative of a buyer.

2015 Corvette Z06 review
Could this be the greatest musclecar of them all? the new Corvette Z06 has
Ferrari 458 Italia performance and power, yet costs as much as an entry
level Porsche 911...... but can the chassis handle all that power? if only
we could get these in South Africa..
The recovery of the 1 Millionth Corvette
Since the sinkhole opened up in the Skydome at the National Corvette Museum
on February 12, 2014, the milestone 1 millionth Corvette has been wedged
precariously over an open space. With the potential of further damage from
slipping and falling further, an unscheduled rescue effort was launched to
recover it. The team lassoed the rear wheel in their first attempt and it
was carefully pulled up. The next step was to lay it back down skillfully
over a place where the custom seats wouldn't be crushed allowing workers to
strap it up for retrieval.
The whole operation took 1 hour and 51 minutes, but here are the

Images taken at the museum, which is also the site of the only remaining
Corvette factory, I believe.
The first music selection was the one that gave me the idea for the show.
The second one I felt was obligatory. The third was used because I like to
use uncommon version of common songs. See my Railpark show
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei_-_h94IeA The last selection was for
giggles and .I just felt that "Little Red Corvette" was just a little too
easy to use.
The vintage Vette picture in watercolor at about 4:21 is altered to hide
the reflection of MY BELLY in the fender!

all eight Corvettes.
