Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Dave Tatman Retires from GM

During last April’s Bash at the National Corvette Museum, my 14-year-old son and I met Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Dave Tatman for the first time.

Despite not knowing us from Adam, he took several minutes of his time during a very busy period to talk with us about the new C7 Corvette and even gave us his card, complete with his contact information.

Sadly, Mr. Tatman announced Tuesday that he has decided to retire from General Motors after 34 years, effective March 1.

Corvette Assembly Plant Named Kentucky Manufacturer of the Year

The new Corvette Stingray has been earning accolades from the press ever since it was unveiled earlier this year.

It’s only natural that the General Motors Assembly Plant in Bowling Green where America’s Sports Car has been built since 1981 would share in that glory, too.

Earlier this month the Bowling Green Assembly Plant was named Manufacturer of the Year by the Kentucky Association for Manufacturers (KAM) at the 2013 KAM Manufacturer and Employee of the Year Awards ceremony.

[VIDEO] CorvetteBlogger Talks with Corvette Plant Manager Dave Tatman

Earlier this week we had the privilege to tour the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, KY to see how the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray is made. While we were there, we spoke with plant manager Dave Tatman about the changes to the plant, C7 production, quality assessments and resumption of public tours which begin on October 14th.

This day has been a long time coming for Nick George.

Now in his 30s, George started saving for a Corvette when he was just 5 years old. That dedication to Chevrolet’s sports car was rewarded today when he and his wife, Valerie, became the first customers to take delivery of a new Stingray at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.

Here’s a great picture that shows just how fast the 1400-car shipping lot at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant is filling with brand spanking new 2014 Corvette Stingrays. We understand that the Quality Control process has been very tight, but with this many Stingrays lined up and ready to go, it most likely means that the QC isn’t finding many issues and production is ramping up.
