According to the National Corvette Museum’s Facebook posting, GM’s CEO Mary Barra is expected to visit the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky today (Thursday, April 25th) to make a major announcement. To add to the importance of the announcement, Barra will be joined by GM Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing Gerald Johnson, the United Auto Workers Vice President Terry Dittes, and local, state and federal officials.
At this moment, it is unknown what Barra will announce, but the rumor mill thinks it will be about adding more jobs, a problem GM had last year after its mass-layoff, not about the Corvette itself. It’s also safe to say the plant isn’t going anywhere soon, as GM just spent $349 million to upgrade the plant.
Another clue that it is about employee count is the museum’s reply to a sarcastic Facebook posting asking if the announcement is about moving Corvette production to Mexico, where the museum replied: “No, quite the opposite.”

Featured Car of the Week
1967 Two owner, CA. Black plate Corvette!
What Mike likes about this car:
“From what we were told from the San Diego dealer we bought this car from, he described it as being in Carlsbad California for all of its life. The car was sold new in California and spent all of its registered existence in San Diego County. Since I claim residency in San Diego I have a personal attachment to this car and I bought it in downtown San Diego when I first found out about it with my brother Paul, (who was visiting from Boston). He and I cruised down to see the car first hand. I love the fact that you can put it in drive (automatic transmission) and cruise the coast. And I can tell you from personal experience this is a great cruiser. What are you waiting for? It’s time to put it in drive and enjoy life. We are not getting any younger!”
Marina Blue w/Black interior, 327/300hp, Powerglide automatic transmission.
Just repainted in its original Marina Blue exterior! It’s optioned with a hard top (only), Powerglide automatic transmission, power brakes and power steering to make it the ultimate cruiser!
It’s a very original, CA. Black plate Convertible that was in the family of its original owner until 2015! Then the second owner bought it and rebuilt its original 327/300hp engine.
