Many moons ago, the very first Chevrolet Corvettes were produced in Flint, Michigan, and the factory housed production for the first 300 Corvettes before moving the assembly south to St. Louis, and finally to Kentucky. The original factory met its match with a wrecking ball 12 years ago, but the National Corvette Museum is giving you a chance to own a piece of the historic location.
The NCM has begun the selling of branded bricks from the original factory for only $25. The $25 buys you one brick from the Corvette factory, an engraved numbered plate and a certification verifying its legitimacy signed by the museum officials.
The museum is also selling Flint factory stones for only $5 with no fancy engraving or commemoration.
NCM spokesperson, Katie Frassinelli, says there are plenty of bricks left for sale and they may be bought in bulk. Corvette enthusiasts have reportedly used the bricks as part of fire pits and even as driveway accents.
Not a bad way to show the Corvette person in your life you care about them. And you can tell your friend, loved one or whoever it may be it has ties all the way back to 1953.
