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.

The recent visit to the assembly plant was great. You walk close to the assembly of the new corvette. It's interesting how they assemble a group of 20 or so cars in a group. Their interest in quality really shows

What a fun experience! I ordered tickets on their website which reserves your spot. I suggest doing that in advance. Keep your phone/camera in the car as there are no photos allowed inside the facility.

Very nice tour of the plant. Very informed guide takes you thru the plant during working hours. You can't take cameras or cell phones inside so no pics.
