New GM Corvette Plant Manager Named

GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant Manager Bob Parcell has been appointed Plant Manager, Lordstown Complex, effective August 1, 2010.  Dave Tatman, current Plant Manager of Warren, Willow Run and Parma Transmission Operations, will succeed Parcell as Bowling Green Assembly Plant Manager.

Dave Tatman is ready to jump in and lead the ship at Bowling Green Assembly, the world’s only producer of the Chevrolet Corvette.

“You only get so many blessings in life, and this is one of them - to be assigned to the plant in Bowling Green.  In my opinion, it is the crown jewel of GM’s assembly plants,” Dave said.

Be sure to watch for our September/October issue of America's Sports Car magazine where we will have a feature article and interview on Dave Tatman!

Get V.I.P. Access to GM's Milford Proving Grounds!

It is a driving enthusiast's dream come true... the chance to gain special access to the top secret General Motors Milford Proving Grounds. And this dream becomes reality for the lucky participants of this year's Pace Car Reunion September 21-25.

Located in Milford, Michigan this is the industry's first dedicated automotible testing facility, covering 4,000 acres with the equivalent of 132 miles of highway-quality training.

At the MPG the group will head to the famous high speed oval, the scene of the famous PR footage of Duntov with the brand new 1963 Corvettes.  Participants will do a few laps and then have a group photograph on the banking.

Do you have to have a Pace Car to come? Nope. While the event focuses on this model Corvette, you don't have to have one. In fact, we'd love to have other Corvettes and other models of Pace Cars, too! Check out the full agenda online and register while there's still space!

Cruise to Hawaii with NCM in 2011!

Next February we set sail for an adventure around the Hawaiian islands! This is your chance to cruise with fellow Corvette enthusiasts on a 7-night Norwegian Pride of America cruise!
