General Motors Corvette Assembly Plant
GM makes about 30,000 Corvettes every year and each one is a special order, rolling off the assembly line with the all of the options specified by the new owner. And the base price is a mere $55,000! We didn’t order one but we did shell out $10.00 each to take the tour which is very well done with a good look at different stations along the assembly line and a lot of information about the care and detail that goes into making sure that each car is built to precise standards. No photographs are permitted.
The tour is wheelchair accessible. For safety reasons crutches and walkers are not allowed but wheelchairs are available at no charge. Read over all of the restrictions before going on a tour. It’s a bit of a trek to the entrance from the main parking lot. There are accessible parking spots close to the doors but they’re not long enough for RVs.
The main parking lot is large enough for any RV. There’s a sign reserving the lot for Ford, Chevy or GMC vehicles only. Foreign vehicles are to be parked in a small lot off to the side which we thought was pretty silly since many of them are made in the US although the plants may not be unionized.
