Corvette: The Official Sports Car of Kentucky

by Keith Cornett on October 10, 2007

Kentucky State Representative C.B. Embry (R) filed a bill for the upcoming Kentucky General Assembly that would officially designate Corvette as the states official sports car. The bill would server to honor General Motors “For locating the [Bowling Green Assembly] facility with us. They have over 900 jobs there that pay very well” said the Representative. The bill doesn’t have any co-sponsors yet, but Embry expects broad support for the bill when the legislature convenes in January. The bill shies from naming the Corvette as “Official Car” due to several other assembly plants located in the state that make the Ford Explorer, Ford F-Series Super Duty Trucks and the Toyota Camry. Embry concludes that “there would be a controversy to name it as the official state vehicle.”
