Corvette Turns 54 Today

First CorvetteJune 30th marks the birthday of the Chevrolet Corvette!

In 1953, the very first Corvette rolled off the assembly line in Flint, Michigan.  While Flint certainly isn’t what it was in 1953, the Corvette is everything it was then and so much more!

Did the designers, the engineers, the product managers, and mostly the assembly workers know that day what they were building?  The culture, the love, the admiration and domination of the sports car industry for over 50 years?  I doubt it, but we owe them a great deal of thanks for their efforts then, and still to this day.

So all you Corvette owners out there, give your Corvette some birthday love on it’s Birthday!

    My grandfather test drove them in St. Louis, and had lots of stories. When I realized what a car was, and what Corvettes were in relationship to other cars, that made my PAPA that much more special, as well as the Corvettes he was driving!!!
