Over a decade ago, when the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky got their hands on a Digital8 camcorder, they decided to make use of it by putting together this video tour of the many attractions that visitors could look forward to. Unfortunately, the tapes used to record this promotional video were lost deep in the corridors of a (since fired) employee – until now…
Okay, so we made that narrative up. But watch the video, and you might get the sense that it’s not too far from the truth. Besides the aspect ratio, resolution, quality and music selection all dating the video back quite a few years, it contains no images of any C7s, and it references neither the NCM Motorsports Park, nor the historic sinkhole cars.
Yet, the date stamp on YouTube assures us that this video is very new – uploaded just yesterday, as a matter of fact. So where has it been all these years?
Who knows, but it looks like it might already be time to reshoot.
Note: Our favorite part is at around 3:26, when a mustachioed, bespectacled man hurriedly enters the frame to take virtual lug nuts off of a virtual Corvette with an impact driver. His enthusiasm is infectious.
