If you want to take a tour of the plant you need to make a reservation through the plant's website: http://www.bowlinggreenassemblyplant.com/
 
I just reserved a slot on the Thursday morning 9 o'clock tour.  They only take 20 to 25 people per tour and there are only three scheduled public tours per day (9:00, 11:30, & 1:15).  Cost is $5 per person paid via credit card when making the reservation.
 
So it you want to tour the plant during the caravan DO IT NOW...!!!

Terry - try changing your reservation through the website.  There is a link on the 'Tour Info' dropdown labeled 'Edit Tour Time'.  You'll need your confirmation number and e-mail address.

OK, so after I tell Jim (StingrayJim) that we won't be there, the wife says she thought we were still going even though 71Shark and Fireboss chickened out.

Go figure.  So we took two of the spots for 9am Thurs.

Now if I can just find the number Jim gave me for the hotel, and figure out how to do rear bearings, and get the new tranny in...

AREWETHEREYET?

I have signed up for the 9:00 am Sept 3rd tour also.  I am looking forward to meeting with other corvette C3 crazies from C3VR.  It's been alot of fun to read all your posts, but it will be even better to meet you face-to-face.

Fireboss wants to go on the tour.  If you decide to cancel, please pm him first so he can take your spot.
