The recent visit to the assembly plant was great. You walk close to the assembly of the new corvette. It's interesting how they assemble a group of 20 or so cars in a group. Their interest in quality really shows

What a fun experience! I ordered tickets on their website which reserves your spot. I suggest doing that in advance. Keep your phone/camera in the car as there are no photos allowed inside the facility.

The Chevrolet engineers boosted the horsepower of the 1987 corvette by 10 hp to 240 by the use of roller-bearing hydraulic valve lifters. I don't believe your 1986 will have them unless retro fitted. Joe Campbell
