Celebrate a special day

Friday, June 29 is the 12th annual Drive Your Corvette to Work Day, sponsored by Mid America Motorworks. In honor of this day, enthusiasts across America will make “America’s Sports Car” their commute car for the day.
“Drive Your Corvette to Work Day is held on the Friday closest to June 30, when the first Corvette rolled off the assembly line in 1953 in Flint, Michigan,” said Mike Yager, Mid America Motorworks Founder and Chief Cheerleader. “We encourage everyone to drive his or hers Corvette.”
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 to 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. The Chevrolet Corvette is arguably GM’s greatest contribution to the automotive world and the event is a tribute to its excellence.
“We understand why many owners consider their Corvette to be a special car and only drive it occasionally,” said Yager. “We think driving your Corvette to work, at least one day a year, is an excellent way to demonstrate just how popular Corvettes are. Wave to other Corvette owners. It’s a perfect chance for Corvette owners to meet each other.”
Mid America invites you to drive your Corvette on June 29, take a photo of your ride at work and post it on the facebook page at www.facebook.com/corvettepassion.
