Earlier this year, Chevrolet auctioned off VIN #001 of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 to Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. Today, he took delivery of that car (as well as VIN #003 that he plans on driving) at the Corvette plant and museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Apparently, all of his VIN #001 Corvettes are all black, and this one is no exception.
The National Corvette Museum provides a unique opportunity for owners to pick up their car at the plant, and possibly see it in production. They are treated like kings / queens and get an exclusive tour of the plant. It’s not free, but everyone we’ve talked to in the past that has done it says it’s worth the experience. Mr. Hendrick seems to agree.
