Through the course of time, the Corvette has stood for many things. From being an old man’s time machine, to being a performance machine for the frugally minded track-day drivers. And over the weekend, hundreds of Chevrolet Corvettes flocked to the Detroit riverfront, in the shadow of the GM Renascence Center, and celebrated sixty years of the Corvette’s existence. It’s unclear what the final turnout was, but according to The Detroit News, the count swelled to over 300 Corvettes by 11:00 A.M. Saturday morning.
60 of the Corvettes convoyed from Flint, where the Corvette was originally assembled, to celebrate. The event concluded with a procession to Belle Isle for a lap around the island.
Say it with us: car culture is not dead.
