Corvette Today Podcast With Kai Spande BGA Manager

On this episode of CORVETTE TODAY, you get to meet the Corvette Plant Manager for the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, Kai Spande!
Your host, Steve Garrett, introduces you to Kai as he traces his career with GM. Kai talks about how the Bowling Green Assembly Plant transitioned from the front engine, C7 Corvette, to the mid-engine C8 Corvette. You'll get insights on the plant expansion and how they made that all happen...giving the new C8 Corvette a true state-of-the-art build facility. Kai also tells you about the Corvettes he has owned and the funny story of how he loved Corvettes, but never thought he'd get to work for it during his tenure at GM. Get to personally know Corvette Plant Manager, Kai Spande, on this episode of CORVETTE TODAY!

        I was late to the Corvette ownership world, for kids and family and building our own house ourselves all came first. No picture of our black C5, but here is the past and the present.

        Our 2006 Z06 after 9 years, with 33,000 miles, sitting on the dealership after being traded in on the one below. Now lives in a heated garage in Connecticut.

          Great photo on the Beartooth! The 2006 Z06 looks brand new although I'd be a bit concerned about that nasty looking caterpillar on the wall behind it.

          My only Corvette prior to my current C7 was a 1989 I bought new for $25,500. Had it ten years and sold it for $12,500.

                          John, the Beartooth Highway starts and ends in MONTANA, not Wyoming. It meanders along the border of Montana and Wyoming and the lion's share of it is even in Wyoming but the entrance and exit belongs to Montana.

                              It sure is spectacular as it wanders back and forth between the two states.
