The score was 14000 to 4!

As Bruce mentioned, we had the only XLR there as a participant. The Bowling Green Plant was well represented with 2 Corvettes and 2 XLR's on display. They brought up a third XLR that was out giving demo rides if I understood Tom correctly. We never saw it.

Tom Hill was there and we (Bruce, Cathy, Paula and I) had a nice chat with him. The plant Manager, Wil Cooksey, was present signing autographs with several other celebreties. It was nice to see Bruce and Cathy (Cadillac Tech) again.

On our way out, we snuck past the "Corvette police" (LOL) and manuvered to the drive thru show center. We were stopped several times with appreciative remarks and people giving the thumbs up. One guy said that he was a fan but had never seen one in person and thanked us for coming.

I am going to contact Mike Yaeger, CEO of Midcoast Motor works to discuss integrating our cars into the event. I'll post the results
