If you happen to buy a new Corvette in roughly two years, you can likely thank the previous customers of the seventh-generation Stingray for your improved paint job.

The overwhelming success of the new Corvette, introduced in 2014, no doubt heavily influenced General Motors’ announcement today that it will be investing $439 million at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, most of which will go to a new Corvette paint shop that will include “substantial technology upgrades,” according to GM.

Last week in the days leading up to Corvette FunFest, we actually found ourselves back in Bowling Green at the Corvette Assembly Plant with a group of auto writers who were assembled by our friends at Mobil 1.

After touring the new Performance Build Center where the new LT4 supercharged engines are being assembled by hand, some of the group ventured out onto the floor of the plant and that is where this 2015 Corvette Z06 in Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic was spotted.

Corvettes on eBay: Psychedelic Themed 1965 Corvette Coupe

Check out this interesting midyear Coupe we found for sale on eBay. The psychedelic sixties were over a long time ago but sometimes they live on as in the case of the paint job found on this 1965 Corvette, down to the peace sign painted on the gas door cover. The auction still has a couple more days to go and so far the top bid has just surpassed $20,000.

Larry the Cable Guy’s Only in America TV show recently stopped in Bowling Green, Kentucky where he filmed a segment at the Corvette assembly plant. Larry proves that he wouldn’t be a good addition to the local labor force as we watch him touch a newly painted door and struggle with putting together a set of seat belts.

Corvettes Qualify Fourth and Fifth in Lime Rock ALMS

As the Bowling Green Assembly Plant ramps up production of the 2012 Corvette, two of its most popular colors are noticibly absent from the order system. Cyber Gray and Crystal Red Metallic have been in the top four color choices for Corvette buyers in both 2010 and midway through 2011. But the Japenese earthquake damaged the plant that provided a key paint pigment and both colors have been sidelined ever since.
