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

2015 Corvette Z06 - Top Speed Acceleration & Sound
2015 Corvette Z06 with Z07 performance package. 659 PS and 881 Nm of torque
from a 6.2 liter supercharged pushrod V8 and a soundtrack like no other ;)
as you can see, the aerodynamic downforce generated by the Z07 Performance
Pack is holding back the car at high speeds, but it´s also the reason for
it being an absolute monster on the track! It destroyed our fastest
production car lap (991 turbo S) at
Sachsenring by TWO seconds, the track performance is just unbelievable!!
