The Corvette Assembly Plant’s Corvette Display Area is Receiving a Facelift
It’s been two and a half years since the public has been allowed to tour the hallowed halls of the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, the home of the Chevrolet Corvette. The last general public tour went through on June 16, 2017 and since then the plant was reconstructed for the production of the next-generation Corvette which will officially start retail production in February 2020.
In their weekly email, the National Corvette Museum tells us that public tours will restart “BY Spring of 2020″. That’s great news that the public tours will restart but even more importantly are the Buyer’s Tour and the VIP Tours which are a major reason for doing the Museum’s R8C Deliveries. Once those tours are in place we imagine the public tours will start shortly thereafter.
When those tours restart, Corvette enthusiasts will see that the Assembly Plant has undergone a further renovation at the front of the plant to improve the Corvette display in front of the Bowling Green Assembly Plant sign.
The NCM tells us the main reason for the upgrade is for the safety of those who come by and take photos of the Corvettes in front of the Corvette Assembly Plant.
“We found that visitors were stopping in the middle of the road in front of the sign, and even standing in the road to take photos,” said Kai Spande, Plant Manager. “Safety is a top concern for visitors so we looked into how that area could be updated to better accommodate photo ops.”
The display is being backed up towards the BGAP sign and two drive-up concrete ramps will replace the steel ramps that previously held the cars.
“The area includes plenty of space for guests to stand safely out of the path of traffic with multiple recommended vantage points for the perfect picture,” added Kai.
Contruction of the new display started on November 1st.
