Revving Up Support: ACS Composite's Role in BGFD's Special Edition C8 Corvette Project

At ACS Composite, we're proud to play a pivotal role in enhancing the Bowling Green Fire Department's (BGFD) latest C8 Corvette project. Our state-of-the-art aftermarket Corvette parts have not only elevated the aesthetics of this iconic vehicle but also its performance.

This exceptional Arctic White Stingray, will continue to support their educational efforts at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, and around the local community.

This will be their second C8 Corvette that was used for this purpose. Their first iteration, Chief 1, was a Torch Red Stingray that was raffled off to support funding efforts of the Bowling Green Firefighters fund.

Excerpt from the last Bowling Green Fireman's Ball:

The BGFD is proud to introduce the Second Annual Bowling Green Fire Department Chief 1 Edition 2023 C8 Corvette, a long-held dream now realized. This iconic car, built in Bowling Green, serves not only for fire, rescue, and EMS services at the GM Assembly Plant and National Corvette Museum but also for various public relations events. The Chief 1 Corvette has been in service since April 2023, thanks to the support of many individuals and organizations.

Key to acquiring this dream car was Mike Furman of Criswell Corvette, who helped locate an additional allocation. The Mingus family and Mason Mingus of Team Construction played a critical role in funding the purchase. Moreover, Chet Baigh of Aerolarri generously donated a set of Hurricane wheels, further enhancing the Corvette's appeal.

Reflecting on the community's resilience and solidarity, Gerald Johnson, GM Executive Vice President, highlighted the crucial role of BGFD during the EF3 tornado in December. In appreciation, a Torch Red C8 Corvette Coupe was expedited to the department, featuring the last three digits of the VIN as "9-1-1". This Corvette is leased to the city for $1, serving educational and community events before being raffled off to support the nonprofit Bowling Green Firefighters Association.
