BOWLING GREEN, KY – Tina Thompson of Guthrie always heard the Corvette was a man’s car, so when she bought a Corvette five years ago, she decided to make sure hers was unmistakably a woman’s by painting it pink.
“I wanted something that nobody else had, and I wanted it to say woman,” she said.
Thompson has been a Corvette fan since first seeing one in high school in the late 1970s.
“I fell in love with them back then and said ‘eventually I will have one.’ ”
Now, she has a one-of-a-kind 1998 Corvette she calls Pink Ice, which she showcased at the 33rd annual National Corvette Homecoming on Saturday at the Sloan Convention Center. The three-day event featured an indoor and outdoor car show with celebrity judges, a road tour of the countryside, guest speakers and vendors.
