It’s known that the workers in the Bowling Green Assembly Plant have a special relationship with the owners of the cars they build and because of that, they occasionally offer a little surprise message here and there as they assemble the vehicles running down the line.
Service personnel at Kerbeck Corvette in Atlantic City, NJ found one such message on the bottom of this new Corvette they just received from Bowling Green.
This Corvette, a black 2017 Grand Sport Convertible, was the final car running down the line before the assembly plant shut down for a two week break. As it was on the assembly line, one of the workers tagged it with the message “Last One 2016”.
Kerbeck’s Dave Salvatore posted the photo on the Corvette Forum with this message:
I don’t know if this is something the factory does every year but obviously the guys wanted to celebrate their 2 week shutdown once this car was off of the line! By the way, it’s a black Grand Sport convertible if anyone is interested…
We think that’s a cool way to celebrate the end of 2016 as the eventual owner of this Grand Sport will have a neat piece of Corvette trivia as having the last Corvette built this year.
If anyone is interested in the Grand Sport, visit Kerbeck Corvette on the web at www.kerbeck.com or call Dave Salvatore at 877-537-2325.
