Corvettes on TV


Thanksgiving always brings back memories of hitting the road (over the hills and through the woods) to visit family and partake in Thanksgiving feasts and this year will be no different as my family heads out on a nearly 2,000 road trip from Florida to Kentucky. Unfortunately, no visit to the NCM will be made during this trip, but we will be attending the UK vs Tennesse football game on Saturday in Lexington. While I’m gone this week, I won’t be doing any posts to, however my TiVo will be very busy. SpeedTV is offering several shows that focus on the Corvette or muscle cars in general. Here is what is on my list: Old School Corvette Racer
