September 1, 2022 â€“ The National Corvette Museum (NCM) and Bowling Green

In 1981, General
Motors moved production of the Chevrolet Corvette from St. Louis, MO to
600 Corvette Drive, Bowling Green, KY. Known as â€œAmericaâ€™s Sports Car,â€???
the plant tour allows visitors to watch an icon in the making. The
Corvette is the worldâ€™s longest-running, continuously produced passenger
car with more than 1.75 million produced. The GM site consists of 212
acres, and the plant has 1.7 million square feet â€“ equivalent to 39
acres or 29.5 football fields, under roof.
Plant tours were initially
suspended in 2017 due to plant enhancements and significant layout
changes of the facility. The Covid pandemic further delayed plant tours.
â€œWe have been waiting for this day for what feels like an eternity,â€???
said Kai Spande, Plant Director for the General Motors Bowling Green
Assembly Plant and Board Chairman of the National Corvette Museum. â€œItâ€™s
a great point of pride for our workforce to be able to share what it
takes to make Americaâ€™s Sports Car. We cannot wait to start welcoming
Corvette customers, enthusiasts, and friends back for tours of our
Advanced reservations are recommended. Some walk up admission
