KRMG interviewed Terri Green the local leader of the National Corvette Museum Caravan in the Oklahoma-Texas Branch.
This is the first time in the history of the caravan will be stopping and staying in Tulsa.
The Corvette Museum is located in Boiling Green, Kentucky and every year around Labor Day the Museum celebrates its anniversary.
Every five years there is a national caravan of Corvettes that travel to Boiling Green and attend festivities celebrating Corvettes.
Cars will be coming from as far away from Southern California, New Mexico and Texas.
A group of close to 400 Corvettes will be coming to Tulsa via Route 66.
The group will be spending the night at the Hard Rock Hotel just off of 193rd and I-44.
Corvette Friends of Oklahoma is the club that is hosting the event along with Danny Beck Chevrolet.
Corvette Friends of Oklahoma is a new club and basically if you love a Corvette, you will see a whole range of Vets at the Hard Rock.
Terri admits that she wasn’t sold on the idea of having a Vet until after she participated in the 2003 National Corvette Caravan that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the car.
Cars will start arriving into the Tulsa area around 5 to 5:30 p.m.
People will be able to view the cars in a gated area on the south side of Hard Rock, by the Waffle House, until about 8 pm.
