The COVID-19 pandemic has forced car enthusiasts to get creative with how they indulge in their hobby, as many races, auto shows, car meets and other events were canceled for various virus-related reasons. For this reason, General Motors has been trying its best to give enthusiasts young and old something to do this year, hosting various online talks and events, and now it’s come up with a new way for them to kill some time.
This 2020 Corvette ‘Papercraft Dream Garage’ craft project was originally published in the Chevy New Roads Magazine that is distributed to dealerships and other partners and was recently uploaded to the automaker’s website as well. This fun little project allows readers to cut out (or in this case download a PDF) design template for a scale Corvette made from paper, which can then be easily built using common household items.
To construct the paper model, all you have to do is cut and fold where indicated, then tape or glue to hold the model together. The automaker also encourages Chevy fans to stage a miniature photoshoot of their papercraft Corvette, and “share your photos on your favorite social media channels using the hashtag #ChevyLove.”
“This papercraft model brings the sleek yet muscular design of the mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray Coupe right to your desk, coffee table, or wherever you’ve got paper, scissors, and a creative spark,” the automaker said.
The 2020 Corvette papercraft model PDF can be downloaded via this link and is available in three colors: Rapid Blue, Torch Red and Accelerate Yellow.
Chevrolet will eventually add more vehicles to its Papercraft Dream Garage catalog, giving “kids and adults alike,” a new way to get creative “while getting in touch (literally!) with the design points of the cars, trucks, and SUVs you know and love.” There’s no telling which model could be up next, but we’d love to see trucks like the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 or Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss get the Papercraft Dream Garage treatment!
