Chevy runs deep! This time Freiburger and Finnegan find out just how deep as they visit the infamous sinkhole that opened up inside the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. To do it Roadkill style, the guys find the worst Corvette they can buy, get it running after sitting for six years, break auto parts, experience gators firsthand, and visit the Corvette assembly plant. Finally, they try and convince the Corvette Museum to let them leave their ’75 Stingray behind…inside the sinkhole.

The NCM Bash celebrating the new Corvette models took on an international flavor Friday with the announcement that Michelin will be first official sponsor of the NCM Motorsports Park.

The sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum has been covered extensively by reporters from around the world.

CNN interviewed renowned Corvette artist Dana Forrester, who’s also lead Corvette restoration member of the museum’s board of directors, and he has some interesting ideas about what to do with the sinkhole.
Today at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash, Chevrolet introduced two new design packages for the 2015 Corvette. If they look familiar, it’s because you first saw them at the SEMA show last fall in Las Vegas. The Atlantic is a luxury-GT styled convertible while the Pacific is a track-focused performance coupe.
Of course, CORSA performance exhaust systems and air intake kits for C4, C5, and C6 models have been a popular aftermarket item for Corvette enthusiasts for years.

The NCM Bash this weekend traditionally marks the rollout of the next model year Corvette, an event where you can go and see all of the new Corvette goodies up close and personal. Seminars feature a host of Corvette engineers, designers and racers speaking on just about any topic you can think of relating to our favorite car.
The Corvette world continues to make lemonade out of lemons.
When a 40th Anniversary Corvette became one of the sinkhole victims at the National Corvette Museum back in February, the tragedy really hit home for one enthusiast named Lynda Patterson.
You see, she and her husband, Mike, owned a 1993 Ruby Red anniversary model just like the one that was swallowed up by the earth.
