Yeah, Corvette; what else could it be if not an F-car. The first day I got my 92 white (spring '94), a kid asked me if it was the new Camaro. Actually not a bad question for an optimistic salivating young American car aficionado. Kind of like some folks waiting around for the next gen NSX. In 10 years of ownership, he was the only one to ask me that.for people constantly mistaking the nsx for a vette

I got a, "Is that a Corvette?" yesterday.

ummm bahhhhhhhh corvette. Can't really blame the automotive uneducated general public, then there are the automotive ignornant sheep types.....
I've passed it maybe 8 or 10 times during my trips to and from Texas and just cant bring myself to give a crap for even a few seconds.
The only time I've ever mentioned it was in a coversation to my brother when I asked him if he knew why it was "shaped so funny."
Apparently, if you look at it from above, the building is supposed to look like the dashboard of a classic 'vette.
So, ummmmmm... is this helicopter ride included in the price of admission because, unless it is, the only view you get is of a building that looks like it was designed by a moron.
eh. No need to stop as we pass, IMO.... I'll wait until we get to Loveless Cafe. The homemade biscuits and jelly are much more interesting.
i dont even know what kind of car that is, but id assume its an anti-corvette car
Circa 76-77ish model. Infamous for a rear traking problem. Followed many that I could see the drivers front tire. Hilarious.

I attended school in Bowling Green, KY and lived there when the museum opened. As far as automotive museums go, it's actually not so bad. Perhaps it does look like it was designed by a moron, but I think it's pretty remarkable to have such a large museum dedicated to a single vehicle model... built with a modest budget and in a short time, as well.
Corvettes are not my cup of tea and I'm not sure the museum would interest the average person, but it must be insanely cool for Corvette enthusiasts: They have a museum that's exclusively their own across the street from the assembly plant that's produced nothing but Vettes for decades in the town that's home to an annual gathering that attracts 5,000+ Corvette owners over one weekend.
I'm just kind of.... meh... about them now. I blame gdae. He's been filling my head with info about the NSX for several years. I look at the 'vette and even high end cars differently now.
Never been to the museum, but I went through the plant tour down the road last year, and it was AWESOME. I am not a vette lover, but itwas cool to see them being built. The day I was there, they built the Ron Fellows Z06. I got lucky.
