If anyone from the Cincinnati area is planning to go, let us know and maybe we can caravan down together. We plan on driving down on Friday.

Mr. Vader will be there again this year


Objects in mirror will be having a great time


Take a factory tour of the magic place where dreams are built while you are in the area


And visit the only museum that matters


See you there! :thumbs:

I'll chime in on this one concidering i grew up about 10 minutes from the factory. Every summer bowling green is COVERED with vettes during the homecoming, i've seen people from all 50 states and overseas, truly a great event.

To all of you that like museums, the Corvette museum is awesome, but i've got a buddy down there running the museum you MUST see "ARTS Corvette Museum" just up the street from the plant, tons of beautiful cars in there

I did R8C delivery on my C6, but that was before the new addition. One of these days I'll get back up to see all the new stuff.

Does anyone know if they're done with the expansion yet?

Got a caravan of seven vettes so far going to the Corvette Homecoming, originating in the Columbus OH area. We'll be picking it up in the Cincinnati area at some point Friday, let us know if your interested in joining at some point.

Official Web page is here:

[url= http://"http://www.nationalcorvettehomecoming.com/"]http://www.nationalcorvettehomecoming.com/[/url]


Photo's documenting our experience last year:


We had a great time, there was a good turnout...




First time with our car at a show and we won a "celebrity's choice" plaque with our V8DER theme...




There was an impressive field for the police escorted parade through town...




We randomly ended up being the lead car in the parade...




Nobody came close to getting in our way...




There was quite a bit of beautiful scenery out the rear view mirror...




Of course we had to stop at the museum while in town...





Also visited that magical place across the street where dreams are built...




We also won some $$$ in a raffle, and a free membership to the local corvette club...what an awesome weekend!
