General Motors Bowling Green Assembly Tour
Watch the fascinating assembly process of one of America's favorite sports cars, the Chevrolet Corvette, on a one-mile walking tour. Witness an engineering marvel as the chassis and body come together in "marriage" and brand new Corvettes roll off the assembly line. The GM site consists of 212 acres, and the plant has one million square feet –equivalent to 22 acres or 17 football fields, under roof.
Private Body Shop Tour
TMS2016 attendees will be taken on an exclusive tour of the plant's new $52 million body shop where the aluminum frames for the Corvette are manufactured. This guided tour of the plant, tailored specifically to the interests of TMS attendees, will include an explanation of the body shop processes.
National Corvette Museum
The Museum features more than 80 Corvettes in period-specific settings, including mint classics, one-of-a-kind prototypes, and modern-day wonders of engineering and design. Test your knowledge at interactive trivia kiosks, and don’t miss the chance to try a Corvette on for size in the lobby where a 2015 Stingray waits for you. It will also feature a new exhibit, Corvette Cave-In: The Skydome Sinkhole Experience, which tells the story of the 2014 sinkhole that swallowed eight Corvettes and allows you to experience the cave-in.
Please note that a maximum of 45 participants will be allowed to participate in the tour. Tour will be cancelled if there is not adequate interest.
