One thing my husband, Jim, and I have in common is a love for cars. I ended up becoming a university professor instead, but I never lost my passion. Jim and I had always wanted a vintage vehicle, but timing, opportunity and priorities played interference over the years.
But at long last, we decided to bring our dream to life. Being familiar with its automotive renown, Jim and I started our search in Bowling Green. Not only did we find a handful of strong contenders to purchase, we found activities and events to turn the trek into a vacation.
With our wishlist in mind, we centered our trip around the Corvette museum and the Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals. Driving to Bowling Green through Louisville and through the beautiful lushness of the Kentucky landscape was a joy. As we got closer, our excitement was off the charts. Our soundtrack for the trip included mostly songs about cars.
We had a ball singing along and getting excited about what was around the next turn.
We knew we had arrived at the National Corvette Museum when we saw the yellow dome and red needle next to the shiny silver building. Inside, there were wonderful stories about each car and many had photos of the owners. There was a lot of great history not only about the Corvette, but how it fit into the landscape of the American automobile.
Did you know that the name Corvette came from a type of small warship? We approached the track to see a row of gorgeous C8 Corvettes lined up and waiting. Let me be honest, I was downright giddy. As soon as I sat behind the wheel, it occurred to me that maybe, this was the car for me.
Talk about adrenaline-pumping! We were all cracking up when the driver of our lead car recounted how much we slowed down after that. By the time we were on the fourth lap, Jim approached it like a professional. Though he was in front of me, I knew he was beaming during every moment Sexy Bowling Green Kentucky women it. He opted to ride a go-cart at the new NCM Kartplex where he got to race against other drivers. My wobbly legs and I chose to play videographer to share the experience with the. Jim got his helmet on and loaded into his high-speed go-cart.
Without hesitation, Jim rocketed forward when the moment came. He was a natural. It was the Tri-Five weekend highlighting — Chevrolets. The cars ranged from classic restorations to super-swank street rods. The smell of burning rubber and the sound of screeching tires was exhilarating. We both had silly crocodile grins on our faces.
As far as favorite racers go, we both loved the Bel-Air. The seating at the course was unbelievably close to the action and provided a perfect view of the races. Beech Bend is one of the longest continually operating raceways in the country, and at the time of its construction, stadium seating was built closer to the track than these days. We could feel the wind from the cars. We spent most of the next day shopping. By late afternoon, we bought my dream car—a Daytona Blue Corvette Coupe!
It purred as I drove it off the lot. So much for being empty nesters. Though we went to Bowling Green to explore cars, the quaint downtown, friendly businesses, and surrounding countryside were added bonuses. We decided to check out a small-farm winery, Bluegrass Vineyardon the way out of town. Brimming with Southern hospitality and scenery, we ordered a flight of Sexy Bowling Green Kentucky women samples and headed to an outside table.
Once we got home and tucked in the coupe for the night, Jim and I started planning our return excursion. I was trying to be nonchalant when Jim reminded me of that, but he said I was coming across more like a kid eager for a birthday.
