June 30, 2006 - 6th Annual
-"Drive Your Corvette To Work Day"-
 
...Celebrating The Enjoyment of America's Sports Car  
Friday, June 30th, is the date of the 6th Annual Drive Your Corvette To Work Day, sponsored by Mid America Motorworks. In honor of Drive Your Corvette To Work Day, enthusiasts across the United States make "America's Sports Car" their commuter car for the day. Every year, the Friday closest to June 30, Corvettes official birthday, is chosen to observe Drive Your Corvette To Work Day this is the first year the event actually fell on the same day.  
 
Mid America Motorworks promotes Drive Your Corvette To Work Day among Corvette owners and clubs. The goal is to have as many Corvette owners as possible drive their car to work that day. Launched in 2001, Mid America Motorworks' Drive Your Corvette To Work Day is an annual event celebrated by thousands of Corvette owners.  
 
"We understand why many owners consider their Corvette to be a special car and only drive it occasionally," said Mike Yager, founder and "Chief Cheerleader" of Mid America Motorworks, the world's leading supplier of Corvette parts and accessories. "But we think driving your Corvette to work, at least one day a year, is an excellent way to demonstrate just how popular Corvettes are. And it is a chance for Corvette owners to meet new Corvette owners."
 
Corvette owners who observe "Drive Your Corvette To Work Day" are encouraged to send high resolution digital pictures of their car at work to  
clubs@mamotorworks.com
. Mid America Motorworks will post as many pictures as possible right here.

Hmmm, we're only supposed to drive them to work one day a year? I've been driving mine every sunny day when the temp stays below 90 . I did have to scoot home a little early on Tuesday though - I was walking by a door around 4:30 and saw the looming black clouds - then heard thunder and decided to make a break for it. I'm only 9 miles from home, so I booked it on home. Made it without a drop of rain getting on the car . It's amazing how I've just recently become a meterologist .

I've been driving mine to work as much as possible. I would say that I already drove it about 10 times so far this year.

It's not that you can't or shouldn't drive your Vette to work every day.

It's just that to have every drivable Vette on the road for one day of the year would be totally awesome.

It would make a visible statement.

So everyone- make sure you drive somewhere on June 30, 2006. Even if it is just to the store and back.

My almost 2 year old son makes vroom vroom sounds when he see's the vette. Does it count if I sit in the dead-engine vette and do the same thing?? jgoglick38877.8073263889
