The National Corvette Museum recently posted the following notice on their facebook page about the tour schedule at the Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green:
All GM Corvette Plant tours will cease on September 14, 2012. The date for tours to resume has yet to be determined. Of course, you can always come visit us at the Museum! We are open daily, 8am-5pm.
We’re assuming that the suspension of tours is due to the retooling that will be going on inside the Bowling Green Assembly Plant as General Motors transitions from building the C6 Corvette to the next generation 2014 C7 Corvette.
In 2011, General Motors North American President Mark Reuss announced the automaker was investing $131 million in the plant for upgrading tooling and machinery. The investment is expected to create as many as 250 new jobs.
Now is the time to hit the plant if you want to see the how America’s finest autoworkers build the C6 Corvette. We’re planning on touring the facility the week of the NCM Bash.
