Back from Kentucky…

Well Dad and I made it back from Kentucky last night with his new enclosed car hauler.  The trip was about 1200 miles round trip.  I finally got a chance to go to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.  So now I can say I’ve been there and done that and got the T-Shirt (literally).   I took plenty of pictures and will be posting them soon for everyone to see.

Along the way we saw several sites, mainly the trees are starting to change which was evident while traveling the interstate through the rolling hills of the “Blue Grass” state.  While traveling through Mississippi we saw the massive Nissan Plant in Canton, MS. then on past Delta State University and into Memphis.  Some say with the mention of Memphis that Graceland would be the next stop but we passed and said that would be another day.

We pushed on towards Jackson, TN then into Nashville.  Once we reached Nashville it was no time and we were in Bowling Green, KY.  I guess you would have to say that the biggest thing in Bowling Green is the General Motors Plant.  This is the only plant in the world that produces the Corvette and they are very proud of that fact.  The National Corvette Museum is right next to the GM facility and is currently under contruction where it will be expanded to showcase even more of America’s favorite Sports Car.

Needless to say the trip was quick and we bypassed many sites along the way but the main goal was to get the Car Hauler and get back.  Which we did and safely.

UPDATE! I finally uploaded the pics of the National Corvette Museum.  To view just click here! Enjoy!



  1. Thanks for the entry. Although I was there in June, the museum is a “living” museum. meaning that the outer exibits are always changing. When I was there the showcase at the entrance had a 2008 Indy Pace Car in it, and there was no 2009 ZR1 in sight. Thanks again for a very plesant way of viewing photographs. (btw….what was in the car hawler? A new ZR1?)

  2. No it was actually empty. But I did find a Cherry ’71 Pontiac Formula 400 that would have made a great companion car to my ’71 Camaro Z28 RS but it didn’t come home with us. HAHA!
