National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky
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 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

The last of the "Great 8" Corvettes has been pulled from the depths of the
40 foot wide by 60 foot deep sinkhole that collapsed within the Skydome
building of the National Corvette Museum exactly eight weeks ago, marking
the end of the first phase of rebuilding.
The 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 was one of two Corvettes that's whereabouts
were initially unknown after the sinkhole happened. The car was finally

CRAZY, INSANE, Blown Corvette (wicked sound)
2012 muscle car and corvette national show in Chicago, Illinois. This
video was captured on move out day. There were so many perfectly executed
automobiles at the show, it was hard to choose one that stood out from the
rest. From the dodge daytonas and plymouth super birds to copo Camaros there were rare cars all
around. I am a sucker for an originally restored car like many of the top
gear heads, but this corvette absolutely stood out from the crowd. To
start with, the paint job was ridiculously deep, the custom wheels were
insane and what can you say about the supercharged blown big block. I only
wish I could have been there to see him light the tires up for a massive
burnout or some doughnuts or even just a quick pass down the quarter mile
track. Enjoy the sounds of this true american muscle car. Thanks for
