    Default National Corvette Museum eNEWS 9/3/16

    This Week's Issue...
    Museum Featured on Outdoor Channel

    While the now infamous Corvette-swallowing sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum was an unfortunate event, the occurrence continues to bring opportunities for media coverage to Bowling Green. Such was the case early this spring when Ugly Duckling Entertainment visited, filming segments for the new show,Nick’s Wild Ride, airing on the Outdoor Channel.
    This season of Nick’s Wild Ride features 13 episodes, with the National Corvette Museum and NCM Motorsports Park being featured on episode 110: Fast Cars and Fast Bucks.

    Read more on, and be connected to video clips here.

    Clubs and Enthusiasts Featured

    Each year we update the content featured in the Enthusiast area of the Museum. Two clubs were selected in a random drawing to be highlighted in the Museum for the Club Spotlight: Corvette Club of Rhode Island and Route 66 Corvette Club. The clubs each setup artifacts for display, and provided photos and information about their club for a poster.

    We also updated the screen showing photos of 2016 Car Show Winners with their award and Corvette and 47 enthusiasts are now featured. Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry! If you didn't make the cut, be sure to take some pictures of your wins next year. We'll solicit again in the fall! Check out the photos online here or on your next visit to the Museum in our Enthusiast area.
