See first-hand how robots weld the steel and human workers add the parts to make a Corvette at this plant, the only one in the U.S. that produces the car. Call ahead as tours will be suspended starting December 1, 2003 through April of 2004.

We toured the plant with our Corvette club and it was fantastic to see how Vette's come together. Very exciting

When they open back up for tours, I recommend that you go. Prepare to walk at least a mile, it could be more as they are going to be expanding the plant.

The Chevrolet engineers boosted the horsepower of the 1987 corvette by 10 hp to 240 by the use of roller-bearing hydraulic valve lifters. I don't believe your 1986 will have them unless retro fitted. Joe Campbell
