Here’s another way for Corvette lovers to celebrate our favorite mark’s 60th birthday. Corvettes in the D will be taking place this Sunday, June 30th at GM’s world headquarters in Detroit. The event is being coordinated by Larry Courtney who also organizes the annual Corvettes on Woodward food drive each year in August. Click past the jump for all the dirty details on Corvette’s 60th birthday party in Motown.
This first year event will kick off by celebrating 60 years of Corvettes. Several events will make up the event including a caravan of cars making the trek from Corvette’s birthplace, Flint, southward to downtown Detroit and GM’s world headquarters at the Renaissance Center. There kids of all ages will be able to hang out with the Detroit Tigers’ mascot Paws while perusing the Corvettes in attendance. In addition, General Motors will be conducting a ride and drive so you can get behind the wheel of some there latest offerings.
And, of course, you’ll be able to check out the new 2014 Corvette Stingray as well. Just make your way over to the Ren Cen where the general will have one display. And, no it’s not one of the cars available in the ride and drive. Maybe next time…
Corvettes in the D takes place this Sunday, June 30th from 10am to 4pm. Cost for this event is a modest $10 donation per car. Any funds leftover after expenses will be donated to the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park.
