Lofton Chevrolet gets visit of a lifetime after Corvette enthusiasts drive over 60 Corvettes into their lot last Wednesday for a quick stop on their way to the 25th anniversary of the National Corvette Museum.
The National Corvette Museum opened in 1994 and boasts over 28,000 members with over 230,000 visitors annually.
The sixth National Corvette Caravan was held leading to the festivities at the Museum August 28-31. The museum expected over 10,000 Corvette owners to convene in Bowling Green, Kentucky for the festivities.
For Doug Jenkins, The Southeast Caravan Captain, the caravan is about the passion for the vehicle and appreciation for the car, the style, and the performance and of course the Museum, too! This may be the Mississippi natives’ first Caravan, but
Jenkins has prepared for the drive to Bowling Green by practicing the route with his fellow co-captains.
“Everyone should enjoy the ride and to get ready for the Caravan of a lifetime,” he said while he was at Lofton. “It’s just a lot of pride in these cars.”
Spence Lofton is honored that they chose Lofton Chevrolet to be one of their stops.
“It’s pretty special,” he said. “They could’ve stopped anywhere but chose Henderson.”
