FRANKFORT, Ky. -- In the new supercharged version, the 620 horsepower Corvette ZR1 has a top speed of more than 200 mph, rivaling even the fastest, most expensive European sports cars.
So when state Rep. C.B. Embry Jr. introduced legislation two months ago to make the Kentucky-made Corvette the official state sports car, he expected it to speed through the General Assembly.
Instead, Embry's proposal has been stalled in a committee. Embry, a Republican in the Democratic-controlled House, said the measure is languishing with a number of other bills being ignored by legislative leaders who say they're working on more pressing issues.

"Official" state sports car...politicians hard at work! Kind of funny I think, along with their "state picnic" food of KFC. They could start putting up these different "Official" things up for auction and raise some money. ;)

From what I've seen of Kentucky...

The state vehicle needs to be an '83 Chevy Pickup with Pro-White rims, blacked-out rear window with silver "bowtie" silhouette, and a can of Copenhagen on the dashboard...

:p:
