Blue Oyster Cult Frontman Burns for Corvette

Recently Eric Bloom, front man for the rock band Blue Oyster Cult stopped by just hours before a performance. Having sold 24 million albums, they continue to tour, thrilling audiences with songs like Burnin' for Your, Cities on Flame, Godzilla, and Don't Fear the Reaper.

"I've been a car guy since I was looking out of the window of my father's '56 Buick Roadmaster," Eric said. "So I couldn't resist coming here. I've passed by it many times, but this is the first chance I've had to stop in."

Eric's current favorite ride is his Cadillac XLR, which he has collector car insurance on through the NCM Insurance Agency.
“I like it a lot. It is comfortable, beautiful and fast, with a lot of Corvette DNA in it. It was built here in Bowling Green at the Corvette Plant too. Still, looking at all of these Corvettes on display is making me think I should get one now.”

Sorensons Join One Acre Club

When you own a Z06, its only natural to want to take it to the track. So why not support what many consider to be the "home track" for Corvette? That's exactly what Carter and Becky Sorenson wanted to do.
“We have visited the museum a few times, and we have had the opportunity to go to the track twice so far, once with our 2014 Stingray and once with our Z06,” said Carter. This past March, the Sorensons toured the plant and observed their Z06 as it was being built at the General Motors Corvette Assembly Plant.
“We will probably be doing quite a bit of track time with our Z06 at the Motorsports Park.” The couple is planning on making a trip to Bowling Green at the end of July, and again in August to take their Z06 for a spin on the NCM track. “We consider it to be our home track, so we figured that sponsoring an acre was something that we should do.”

Less than 10 acres remain and are available for a $15,000
