Over the weekend we were able to share some photos from outside the Tustin, CA. Blimp Hangars which is where the next generation Corvette reveal is happening on Thursday evening. Today, thanks go out to Corvette_Nut who shared these photos showing some of the preparations happening inside the hangar.
Say what you want about the process, but Chevrolet knows how to reveal a new car, and they are going all out to make sure this is one of the most memorable car introductions in modern times.
Inside the 17-story/1,000 ft long blimp hanger, Chevrolet has constructed a huge stage with a large widescreen and then set up a set of bleachers in front for the guests. Large scaffolds hold the lights and stacks of speakers and you can bet it will be very loud once the show is underway.
Here’s those photos from Corvette_Nut as shared on the Corvette Forum:
Our friend Corvette Conti has been all over this as well and he’s connected with several of the local residents who live across the street. The other night one of these neighbors to the blimp hangar told Conti that they were testing the lights and laser show at 1am in the morning.
Rick also received a new photo showing Chevrolet’s carrier of choice Reliable showing up with several transporters. Rick says he was able to confirm that the cars were indeed in the auto transports. We guess that in addition to the C8 Corvettes for the reveal, we’ll expect to see several of the historic mid-engine Corvette prototypes from the GM Heritage Center as well. You can catch Rick’s vlog on YouTube.
A quick check of the weather for Tustin shows just a slight chance of rain at 10% with temperatures ranging from 61-80 degrees during the day. Sounds like perfect southern California weather has been ordered up for the reveal as well!
Stay tuned as we’ll bring any updates as they become available.
