National Corvette Museum

Thanks to the generosity of an Idaho couple, the National Corvette Museum is now the proud owner of a virtually brand new 1988 35th Anniversary Corvette.

We’ve seen a few of these all-white cars through the years, and the beautiful white interior is usually the first thing to be ruined by everyday use.

But that’s definitely not the case with this 35th Anniversary Corvette donated by Rick and Deb Seymour last month to the NCM.

Corvette racing legend John Greenwood passed away this summer at the age of 71 and now thanks to a couple of Corvette organizations, his legacy as one of the top racers and builder of Corvettes will be remembered next month at Daytona.

The tribute to John Greenwood will be held November 12th at the HSR Classic 24 Hour Race at Daytona International Speedway and you are invited!

Corvette Museum's Motorsports Park Applies for Certificate of Occupancy

Still more news coming out of Bowling Green this week regarding the ongoing saga with the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park’s dealings with the Warren County Planning Commission.

The Motorsports Park is request a certificate of occupancy from the City-County Planning Commission to show compliance with county ordinances according to the Bowling Green Daily News.

It’s always great news when you hear that customers are finally getting their hands on a new or special special edition Corvette.

It was back in April 2015 that the Corvette Team first unveiled the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash Event. Now we’ve come full circle with the first R8C Museum Delivery of the special edition Z06.

The NCM’s latest newsletter featured Lifetime members Ron and Jessica Grove of Mohnton, PA and their brand new Corvette. The 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition they picked up was one of the first 10 of the commemorative C7.R Editions available and one of five to go to the NCM for R8C customer deliveries.

We’ve known Ron Grove personally now for a while as he is an active follower of the CorvetteBlogger twitter feed. He’s also a huge fan of Corvette Racing so we are sure that was one of the main reasons he jumped to buy the new special edition car.

We reached out to Ron to congratulate him on the car and he replied “Awesome Z06! A huge step change from my C6 Z06!” That we can imagine! Congratulations again Ron and Jessica and we hope you enjoy your new 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition!

With all the back-and-forth going on between the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park, the City-County Planning Commission, the Code Enforcement Board, and the neighbors near the track, we figured the disagreement would wind up being settled in court.

Thursday night, the Warren County City-County Planning Commission voted unanimously to join the Residents Against Motorsports Park Noise in their lawsuit.

Corvette Museum Has Appealed the $100 Noise Fine for the NCM Motorsports Park

Here’s the latest on the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park’s efforts to come up with a way to appease nearby residents who have been complaining about excessive noise levels created by vehicles at the park.

The NCM was scheduled to present a 38-page noise reduction and monitoring plan to the Warren County City-County Planning Commission on Oct. 1. That meeting was postponed until Oct. 15.

In the meantime, though, new developments have occurred, according to the Bowling Green Daily News.

Corvette Museum to Submit New Noise Plan Tonight for Motorsports Park

Tonight could be the night when a potential resolution to the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park noise controversy could finally be reached.

At 6 p.m. Thursday in the City Commission Chambers, the City-County Planning Commission will consider a new 38-page detailed development plan submitted by the Museum.

If the plan is approved, the matter will likely head back to the Warren County Code Enforcement Board, which recently levied a $100 a day fine against the Motorsports Park until it’s in compliance with the planning commission.

We Corvette enthusiasts often refer to our cars as our “children.” Just as with our real children, though, sometimes we have to let our Corvettes go so they can soar on their own.

That’s never been truer than in the case of a Texas couple who recently donated their 1978 25th Silver Anniversary Corvette and their 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette to the National Corvette Museum.
