For the last eleven years, the Friday closest to June 30th is chosen as the day to drive your Corvette to work. Mid America’s Mike Yager came up with the concept as a way to show just how popular Corvettes are. The date for this year’s National Drive Your Corvette to Work day is this Friday, June 24th.
The date was chosen as June 30th is the official birthday of the Corvette. That’s when the first 1953 Corvettes begin rolling off the temporary assembly line in Flint, Michigan.
In year’s past, some Corvette clubs and owners have met at staging points to drive into work together and often the Corvettes are parked as a group in front of workplaces. Even if you don’t work or you’re like me and you work at home, Friday’s holiday is the perfect excuse for getting in your Corvette for a weekday cruise or running some errands.
