This exciting event commemorated the day the first Corvette came off the production line in Flint on June 30, 1953. The free car show featured over 500 vehicles including a huge display of Corvettes – a complete set of all anniversary models and every series from the 1953 Corvette to today’s 70th Anniversary edition – as well as live entertainment, food trucks, vendors, special displays and more! A special presentation honoring Flint as the iconic Chevy vehicle’s birthplace was held, attended by GM Flint Assembly plant leaders, President of the UAW Local 598 Ryan Buchalski, Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley and other community guests. Keynote speaker was Ed Piatek, Chief Engineer on Corvette programs.
