National Drive Your Corvette To Work Day

This Friday July 1st is National Drive Your Corvette To Work Day because it is the closest day to June 30.

Why June 30th?  That is the day in 1953 that the first Corvette rolled off the assembly line.

This is the 16th time it has been celebrated.

Below is from the National Corvette Museum on National Corvette Day.

H. Res. 970

In the House of Representatives, U. S., June 26, 2008.
Whereas the Chevrolet Corvette is America’s first sports car;
Whereas the first production Corvette rolled off a Flint, Michigan, assembly line on June 30, 1953;
Whereas the Corvette is now manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky;
Whereas the Corvette is the most widely respected production sports car in United States history;
Whereas the Corvette is truly a symbol of American pride;
Whereas General Motors is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2008; and
Whereas the 30th of June would be an appropriate day to designate as `National Corvette Day’:
Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the United States House of Representatives supports the designation of a `National Corvette Day’ to honor the Chevrolet Corvette.
