Corvette Named Kentucky's Official Sports Car

State Senator Mike Reynolds says the Senate voted 100-to-zero today on legislation to make Bowling Green's "Chevy Corvette" Kentucky's "official sports car."

The bill has already passed the House and now goes to Governor Steve Beshear to be signed into law.

Bowling Green's Corvette plant and museum are growing tourist destinations, with annual visits of 50-thousand people to the plant and 150-thousand to the museum each year.

    LOL Steve. Why would they want a car that accelerates uncontrollably as their state car? P.S. Your tax dollars have nothing to do with GM. Otherwise you should go asking for free things at every store you shop at.

    The Corvette factory and museum bring hundreds of thousands of people to Bowling Green every year to pay homage to an American icon - if you guys are tired of their money and the salaries of the GM employees being spent in your community, I'm sure there are dozens of cities across America (starting with mine) who would jump at the chance to have the Corvette factory. I'm just saying....

    It should of been a Toyota, they employee more people, and didn't require a bailout which has not been all the way paid back and probably wont, I called GM and tried to get a free car, being that my tax dollars bailed them out, and they hung up the phone on me.
