So, since it's technically July 1st now, Happy belated National Corvette day.

In 2008, the American House of Representatives announced that June 30 would be commemorated as National Corvette Day….

I remember when the sinkhole open under the corvette museum in an area of Ky riddle with cave systems and underground streams. I thought it was a national tragedy, though I have never owned one.
Happy National Corvette Day, dude.:D

There was a pride month? How bout that. But, hey. Corvettes are cool, an American Icon. That's something to be proud of.

I was here when it happened. I have a C5 Corvette. Live 70 miles from the museum. They got a cool hatchway on the floor people can lay on and look down the sinkhole.

I've told you before that I've always liked your C5, especially with the hard top versus the stock one. It's nice.

I doubt anyone is gonna get too excited over my crappy old C4, but I'll post a couple I have in my temp folder. Really want a C3, though. Probably gonna pick one of those up at some point. They're my favorite.

I'm pretty sure they have a pile of the ones that got destroyed in that sinkhole on display down there, too. I think somebody posted pictures of that over on the vette forum.

I actually sold the C5 a couple of months ago. Looking for the right C6 Z06 to replace it with!!!

I do still have the C4. View attachment 667133

Really. I remember you were talking about selling it, didn't know you had, though.

I've came close to biting the bullet on a C6 ZR-1 a couple of times, before kicking some sense into myself. Lotta HP, for sure. Scary...

No way I could afford a ZR1 at current prices. Probably gonna wait a couple of years at this point before I get my next one. This economy is a little scary.

Yeah. Know what you mean. It's a mess, for sure.

I like that C4, that's a fine ride. I did have a C3 a short while. Very nice, very different!

Yes, there are several in a display section been destroyed. Think one restored. Got that white one that was like the millionth or maybe it was the year they skipped cept for that one. Lot's of very nice donation and on loan cars. I believe I posted pics of that and the National Motorsports track. That's cool. Got lots of laps on it.

The pile....

Yes folks we have our own Corvette parking. Spaces are huge, wide and long, close to the museum.

It's a very cool museum. Lot's of dioramas like gas/mechanic stations with a couple C1 etc. Well worth a visit.
