On April 26 Plateau Corvette Club members took a trip to the National Corvette Museum (NCM) in Bowling Green, Kentucky to see the new 2014 C-7 Corvettes. Members enjoyed a cruise through the back roads of Tennessee and Kentucky to get to Bowling Green. A lunch stop was made in Bowling Green before heading to the Museum. A 2014 Corvette Coupe and Convertible model were on display. Tech sessions were held and Corvette engineers were on hand to answer questions about the new models. Members also toured the museum where all model years of Corvettes are on display from 1953 to the present, including a rare 1983 Corvette that was never mass produced.
On April 10 , 2013 Plateau Corvette Club members went on a road cruise through the back roads of Tennessee where they had lunch at the Apple Dish in Livingston. After lunch they continued on to Monterey, then back to Crossville. The weather was finally warming up so the club members can enjoy their Corvettes again! More trips are being planned.
March 7, 2013 the Plateau Corvette Club had a special guest speaker from the Corvette Plant in Bowling Green, KY at their monthly meeting. Steve Grilli, Plant Quality Director of the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, with assistance from Scott Janson, gave a slide presentation to club members about the new 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray and the many new features of the redesigned car. Club members also had a chance to ask questions after the presentation. 7
On November 10, 2012 Plateau Corvette Club members took a “Mystery Cruise” through the back roads to Jamestown where we stopped at the Garden Grille for a nice lunch. We also stopped at the Highland Manor Winery where club members took a tour of the winery and sampled the wine. The weather was perfect and the scenery was great. A good time was had by all.
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 several members of the Plateau Corvette Club (8 Corvettes) enjoyed a drive from Crossville, TN over the Cherohala Skyway and the Tail of the Dragon. The Cherohala Skyway traverses the Cherokee National Forest and the Nantahala National Forest as well as the Unicoi Mountains. We meandered in and out of TN and NC. Beautiful views were enjoyed in the mountains on the Skyway, as we reached a height of 5390 ft. The weather was great, reaching a high of 78 degrees. Not bad for late October.
The tail of the Dragon ( on hi-way 129) is a fun road to drive with 318 curves in 11 miles! We continued along beautiful Chilhowee Lake on the Little Tennessee River to the Fort Loudon Dam where we took time to eat before heading home to Crossville.
