The 3rd installment of the popular Corvettes in the D car show takes place this weekend in the shadows of GM’s world headquarters in downtown Detroit. Swing by, support some great charities, check out some sweet Corvettes, and chat with fellow Corvette enthusiasts this Sunday, June 28th, from 9am to 4pm.
The show itself is located right at the base of the General Motors Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit at the corner of Atwater and Beaubien right along the Detroit River. The theme for this year’s event is Vettes for Vets. All of the Proceeds from the gathering will support the Veterans Outreach Project of SE Michigan and Operation Care Package Michigan. In addition to the $10 entry fee, attendees are welcome to bring everything from household items to toiletries to food items to donate as well. The items will be used to stuff care packages sent to our troops serving overseas. The first 300 participants will get a free goodie bag.
The feature of this year’s Corvettes in the D is the Z06. Several cars spanning multiple generations will be on display all day. Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles will be on hand in the GM Tent along with a couple of Corvettes to chat with and answer any questions you may have. Ladies man Paul Koerner, the Corvette Mechanic, and America’s sweetheart Brittany George will be holding Z06 themed seminars and helping owners diagnose and repair their ailing cars. Katech and Lingenfelter Performance Engineering will be showing off their latest beefed up Z06’s.
In addition to cash, the 50/50 raffle will be offering books, gift certificates, magazine subscriptions, die cast cars, man cave items, and Corvette hats. Show logo T-shirts will be for sale for $15.
The cost for Corvettes in the D is a nominal $10. Proceeds will be donated to the Outreach Project of SE Michigan and Operation Care Package Michigan.
