The National Corvette Museum put out a call yesterday for silver C5/C6 Corvette coupes that will be transformed into state police escorts for labor day’s National Corvette Caravan celebration. The coupes chosen for duty will have a lightbar and graphics installed and will lead each of the four national caravans converging on Bowling Green.
From the Corvette Museum:
Here is your chance to drive your Corvette down the highway decorated as a state police vehicle with a light bar on top and vehicle markings as the lead in for the caravan! We are looking for owners of four silver C5/C6 coupes that are willing to become State Police Caravan Escorts when four caravans cross into Kentucky. The four lead Corvettes, with help from the Kentucky State Police, will be fitted with vinyl State Police markings and working light bars. A KSP trooper will be your passenger and you will be assigned a border crossing point to meet a designated Caravan. If you are interested, email your contact information and a picture to [email protected] We will hold a drawing May 15th and announce the four caravan lead vehicles. These Corvettes will also be the featured display on Thursday, September 3 during the event. In case you were wondering…no, you can’t keep the light bar or write tickets. These cars will need to be available on Wednesday and Thursday September 2-3.
In addition to the police escort cars, the NCM is putting together two other special displays. On Friday, September 4th, the NCM will host a “First and Last” display featuring a Corvette from the first and last year of each generation. On Saturday, September 5th, the Museum will display 12-15 Corvettes that were part of the original 1994 Corvette Caravan. If you are interested in participating in either of these displays, contact the national Corvette museum at [email protected].
Would you like to join thousands of Corvettes from across the nation as they trek to Bowling Green for the 15th Anniversary celebration of the National Corvette Museum? Check out the Corvette Caravan for details on this unique experience.
