Cadillac XLR-V Series Forum Discussion, Calling all XLR Owners!!!!!! in Cadillac V-Series Forums; The 30th Anniversary of the Corvette Homecoming
Bowling Green, KY July 14-16, 2011
Joe Pruitt, Event Coordinator, has taken it ...
Joe Pruitt, Event Coordinator, has taken it upon himself to include the Cadillac XLR's in next year's celebration. He already has commitments from some of the Cadillac people who were involved with the XLR to be in attendance next year, with possibly more to come. He also has a commitment from Martin Cadillac of Bowling Green to be involved.
The XLRs will be on display during the event with their own parking area. This will be the first year that the XLRs will be part of the event. It would be great to have a large number of XLRs show up for this.
Joe Pruitt is so serious about including the XLR Community that he personally made the trip to Madison, IN to meet with the Midwest Marauders XLR group and told us that in reality Friday would be dedicated to the XLR's, and we will also be included in the parade through Bowling Green--complete with police escort!! Joe wants this to be a premier event, not only for the Corvettes, but also the XLRs. Bowling Green is the birthplace of the XLR; let's make a great showing on the event!!!
The registration page is updated with the XLR "Display only" option at $25 now. Register and book your hotel rooms now, this event is always sold out early!
Automobile(s): 06 XLR-V and 96 Eldorado ESC-V -- One day ;)

More Info From the National Corvette Homecoming
A letter from the event Coordinator:
Well folks, we told you this year was going to be one heck of a birthday party and we've been busy putting all the details together. Homecoming's 30th is a big one and one we share with the Corvette Assembly plant. This year we will offer a plant manager's seminar, a new Road Tour, golf tournament, GM new vehicle debut, and one of our most anticipated events, a 30 year Corvette display, one for every year since the Corvette plant's opening and the very first Homecoming!
That's right, we are now accepting applicants for Corvettes 1981-2011 to represent their year in this historic display. Applicants need to go to our website for details. The icon Corvettes chosen will be either original or custom and in best condition of all applicants for that year. We will choose a primary and alternate for each year, just in case. Check our website for further information. More Information Click Here.
And don't forget this year we have invited the Corvette's "cousin", the Cadillac XLR's to join us in the 30th Bowling Green Anniversary celebrations. Over 50 of these beautiful Cadillac two-seaters have already registered and we anticipate many more will join in the fun, shows, live music, and new Road Tour through the beautiful Kentucky scenery and back roads.
We have never had so many early registrations and our space is filling up fast. Remember your early registration invites you to our "Touch of Class" Meet & Greet on Thursday evening where you can meet all your favorite celebrities and local dignitaries. Last year we had over 250 attend and we are already above that so don't hesitate to get your name in before we hit our limit of 400 guests.
We have over 50 vendors already aboard including the very popular Al Knoch's transport hauler filled with Corvette tops and interiors and the trained staff to install them while you wait! Simply give us a shout when you register and we will take your order and ensure that Al has your needs on the truck. Where else can you come enjoy a fantastic and unique show, and have your Corvette's top or interior updated on site!
Many other items are in the planning so don't hesitate. Register today! Only 5 months to go!
