Departing Decatur, AL

 

Inside the Museum there were 7 C7s on Corvette Boulevard.
Everybody got to actually sit in the 6 coupes, but not the single convertible.

  

  

 

Outside I was amazed to find David & Kathleen Huber's
1-of-3 Gatorade Pace Car!

Seen here at Carlisle in 2010 when they got my "Celebrity Pick"!

The lineup around the circle represents the 60 years of Corvettes!

A C3 from... Sweden???
  

 

To the Plant for the only tour in a year!
They had 2 groups of 30 C7s on the line.
The main thing I noticed was a major increase in robotics.
(Of course, no cameras or cell phones allowed!)

 

It was great to see friends from New Hampshire here, Dan & Claudia Feidler, with their Wil Cooksey Edition.
  

 

I really love the C7 in Cyber Gray and this color interior, called Kalahari.

The back with the lights on.

Retired Plant Manager Wil Cooksey makes sure he can fit in the C7.

The MotorSports Park Groundbreaking

Corvette Racing Manager Doug Fehan was,
as always, really entertaining and informative.

  

The MSP site, directly across I-65 from the Museum.

See, it really is

Speakers included, l-r: NCM Director Wendell Strode, Corvette Racing Mgr Doug Fehan, NCM Board Chairman Jack Matukas and Bowling Green Mayor Bruce Wilkerson.

        

At last, the green flag: Contractors - Start Your Engines!

 

I stopped by the American Cancer Society office in Bowling Green.
First time I'd seen the new office.

 

Another "Reveal" - this time the "Premier Edition"

  

Options include fitted, logo-bearing luggage.
  

 

Back home by 4:30 pm.
