New Stars and Cars exhibit features two music singers’ Corvettes

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- The National Corvette Museum is presenting a new exhibit called the Stars and Cars Exhibit featuring two music star’s Corvettes.

The featured cars include George Jones 1978 Corvette and Roy Orbison’s 1967 Corvette. 

Country music singer Jones special-ordered his two-tone corvette to feature a color scheme of dark brown and light beige. The red stingray belongs to the musician and six-time Grammy winner Orbison. Orbison owned multiple Corvettes, but this one was his favorite, and it is the last one he purchased before he died in 1988. 

“I’m really excited that we have these two cars on display together for the first time. They look gorgeous in that space and it kinda separates the sky dome apart. You’ve got those eight cars that fell into the sinkhole right there and as soon as you turn your head to the right you’ve got these two beautiful classic Corvettes owned by stars who were inspired by them to write music and drove them to the studio. It’s a great honor to have them there and I’m excited for everyone else to see them as well,” said the museum’s media and communications coordinator Mariah Hughes. 

The museum is open every day of the week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. if you want to see the special exhibit.
