Corvette owners from all over the U.S. will be road tripping to Bowling Green, Kentucky to celebrate the birthplace of their iconic American sports car. Over 1,000 Corvette owners will invade the southern Kentucky town this weekend for the annual C5/C6 Bash at the National Corvette Museum. C5 is the name given to cars made in Bowling Green from 1997 to 2004, C6 followed and is the current model.
Roc Linkov, events manager for the Corvette Museum called this one of the biggest events of the year for the National Corvette Museum. Many Corvette fans will attend, not just Corvette owners.
Linkov explained that, “It’s more of a celebration of people than of cars. Corvette is a very social group. Corvette museum events are a great time to see a lot of really nice cars and meet folks who are passionate about cars that are made right here in Bowling Green.”
“Locals can just come out and browse the parking lot to see really cool Corvettes,” said Katie Frassinelli, marketing and communications manager for the museum.
The American Muscle Car Exhibit, which features several classic muscle cars from the late 1960s and early 1970s, is sure to be a hit with the C5/C6 owners. The bash features all sorts of activities and runs from Thursday through Saturday, including Road tours, race team display and meet-and-greet, special women's features are a Garage Party to learn basics of car maintenance. Two female engineers from General Motors will lead the Garage Party.
Several seminars on Corvette care and maintenance, an auction, a golf cart autocross, the unveiling of the new Corvette model and more will be this weekend in Bowling Green at the National Corvette Museum.
