I thought it was only fitting that the 60th Anniversary of the Corvette be celebrated here in Michigan, birthplace of the Corvette. So I invite you to join me in celebrating the 60th Birthday of Corvette at GM World Headquarters Detroit on Sunday June 30, 2013 10 AM -4 PM.
2013 Michigan Caravan Captain
The morning will begin early in Flint Michigan as local Corvette owners have breakfast and bring together one of every year Corvette to caravan down I 75 to the Ren Cen in Detroit.
They should arrive at the Ren Cen at 10 AM.
When they do they will be cheered on by hundreds of Corvette owners already waiting for their arrival.

Time 10 AM to 4 PM
Date Sunday June 30, 2013
Location Ren Cen Parking on the River (See map and directions)
GM is asking you to “FIND NEW ROADS”. I am asking that you take those new roads to the Ren Cen in Detroit where you will find hundreds of your Corvette friends celebrating the 60th Corvette Birthday Bash. You will also find me with “Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet.”
GM has a lot of new cars coming out right now and you will have a chance to “Drive and Ride” in some of the new lineup. This will give you an opportunity for a test run on some of the new models. No, there will not be a 2014 C7 there for you to drive but, there will be one on display along with a 2013 60th Anniversary Corvette.
Have your camera ready for pictures with you favorite Detroit Tiger Mascot “PAWS”
A day in the sun would not be complete without hot dogs. Dads Hot dogs is bringing his old fashioned Hot Dog Wagon. He will have hot dogs, chips and pop for sale.
Achatz Pie Company will be selling some apple pies along with tasting some of their other products.
Both Dad’s Hot Dogs and Achatz Pie Company are Michigan Companies.
A club tent will be set up for area clubs to give out information about their clubs and events. There will be a information table set up for the 2014 National Corvette Caravan and the 20th Anniversary Celebration at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Michigan Caravan will have window clings and flags for sale.
Keep checking back for updates about other Special Displays.
