Black Rose to be Phased Out

The rumors you have heard are true, Black Rose will be phased out. The color was announced in 2016 at the Michelin NCM Bash as a new color for the 2017 model year and attendees had the opportunity to see the color up close for themselves.

“Basically we are painting Black Rose until the plant shut down happens in August and it won’t be brought back when we start back in November,” said Harlan Charles, Product Marketing Manager for Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro. “We will replace it with a new color TBA, but [that] may not be right away.”

Kentucky: 225 Years on the Move Exhibit Announced

This year Kentucky celebrates a milestone anniversary – it has been 225 years since its admittance as a state into the Union. Originally a part of Virginia, “the Kentucky County” became the 15th state on June 1, 1792. To celebrate, the National Corvette Museum is hosting a special exhibit, ‘Kentucky: 225 Years on the Move’ opening August 28, 2017 and running through Spring, 2018.
The exhibit will trace the history of transportation in Kentucky, featuring artifacts like the Mammoth Cave stagecoach, numerous bicycles from the Kentucky Wheelmen, and L&N Railroad archive items.

The Museum is continuing to solicit artifacts for display as part of the exhibit. Those who are interested in being a part of the ‘Kentucky: 225 Years on the Move’ exhibit are encouraged to reach out to Derek Moore at 270-777-4516 or via email at derek@corvettemuseum.org.
