Here is a group of Corvettes from North and Central Texas, Oklahoma and the Gulf States arriving in Bowling Green. The video was shot from the Exit 26 overpass which is just a couple miles south of Exit 28 on I65 where the National Corvette Museum is located.

The Florida leg of the 2009 National Corvette Caravan kicked off their cruise to Bowling Green, Kentucky for this weekend’s 15th Anniversary Celebration at the National Corvette Museum. The Florida Caravan started in South Florida this morning and broke off into two groups with one going through Orlando and the other coming up the west coast to Tampa.
About 100 Corvettes were gathered at Ferman Chevrolet in Tampa this afternoon before heading North. We met with a few of the members and spoke with Ernie Zager who is the Captain of the Florida leg. According to Zager, the Florida caravan will stop tonight just a few miles south of the Georgia border in Lake City, Florida where they will be guests at a barbeque by Bruce and Becky Glueck of Glueck Chevrolet.
Tomorrow morning the group will make their way to Road Atlanta for some parade laps or high speed passes around the Petit Le Mans course. From there, the Florida caravan will drive over to Kennessaw, Georgia where they will meet up with the Georgia Caravan at a Hooters restaurant for dinner. Both groups will spend the night in Kennessaw before making their way to Bowling Green on Thursday.
The Museum has a full slate of Corvette fun planned for the estimated 5,000 attendees that will be in Bowling Green for the 15th Anniversary Celebration. Festivities will include the Corvette Hall of Fame, seminars, historic video presentations, road tours and other grand activities including the official ribbon-cutting for the Museumâ€™s new areas.

Last Friday you may have seen a slew of online coverage from the auto blogs and magazines detailing “First Drive” reviews of the new 2010 Corvette Grand Sport. In addition to the third party reviews, the Corvette team has also made a smart move by producing a couple of online videos introducing the newest Corvette model as well as demonstrating Launch Control, the newest feature available on all Corvette models with manual transmissions.
Here are the two videos uploaded to Chevrolet’s YouTube account:
By releasing their own videos, the Corvette Team is assured that the introduction of the new Corvette and its (awesome) launch control feature could be shown in the way they wanted. The videos also broaden the audience by providing content to other web sites (ie CorvetteBlogger) that weren’t invited to the media test-drive, but would have been there had they been asked.
It also follows the promise of new GM Communications guru “Maximum” Bob Lutz to fully engage social media platforms to get the company’s message and their products past the traditional media gatekeepers and straight into the hands of the end consumer.

As one of the first sites to share Autocar.co.uk’s “What is this Corvette ZR1 Chasing?” video, we were amazed with the fact that another car was keeping the mighty Corvette ZR1 at bay. Turns out that other car was a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce. Lighter than the Zed-R-One, the AWD Lambo features 30 more horsepower and was piloted by a factory driver while the Corvette was driven by a lowly automotive journalist. Seeing the two cars together on video, we’re more stuck by the fact the ZR1 appears to be much more of a driving enthusiasts car than the much costlier Lamborghini.
