See Your Next New Corvette Being Assembled in Person

May 18, 2008
Linda stares at her new Corvette, not yet fully formed. It's beautiful, but incomplete. She can hardly wait to get her hands on the car. She stares it up and down imagining the fun the two of them are going to have on the open road. An employee at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, KY, invites her to sign her autograph underneath the seat before they fix it into place.

Feeling famous, she gladly agrees and decides this is one of the most exciting days of her life. Aiding in the birth of brand new Corvette on the Assembly Plant is a dream come true.

And the privilege isn't just reserved for Linda. Any Corvette lover interested in making the journey to Bowling Green, KY, to help construct their car and who has the money to do so, can. For only $350, a mere drop in the buck for most Corvette enthusiasts, you can purchase a Corvette at your local dealership and then opt to be part of the Corvette Buyer's Plant Tour.

The tour gives the you, and up to three guests, a VIP tour of the Bowling Green Assembly Plant on the day your car is being created. Although there is no 100% guarantee because of plant shut downs and other unexpected events, the National Corvette Museum staff, who work in conjunction with the Assembly Plant, make every effort to get you on the Line when your Corvette is being formed.

Although the car spends 36 hours winding its way through seven miles of conveyor systems, the VIP tour only lasts 3 to 5 hours. But it's well worth it. The public tour of the plant alone reveals some pretty awesome things. The fact that you can tour the plant where America's sports car is made is unique all in itself. As a VIP, it's even better.

Along the way, you'll see how Corvettes are put together from the ground up. Brightly colored car parts descend from the ceiling while Corvette frames meet at the bottom, waiting for the "marriage." And while you are there, your tour guide will tell you some rather interesting history and fun facts about the Corvette.

To add to this ultimate experience, like Linda, you may get to help assemble some parts of the car. Plant workers are known to let you adhere the tires, fill up the gas tank, and assemble certain parts.

The most exciting part? Giving birth to your new Corvette, otherwise known as, starting the Corvette for the first time when it's completely finished. It's like being a being a proud parent showing off their newborn for the first time.
