Your host, Steve Garrett, introduces you to Kai as he traces his career with GM.

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!

  • NCM Sinkhole 5th Anniversary

    Five years ago today the sinkhole opened up inside the National Corvette Museum and swallowed eight Corvettes. All of the cars were recovered but only three of them were in good enough shape to be restored, the black 62, the one-millionth Corvette C4, and the C6 Blue Devil.

        This is part of the Documentary.



        There are hundreds of plant worker signatures inside the 1 million C4, they were able to save/restore all except one - in the full Documentary they showed her (retired now) coming in and signing the last piece.

          Thanks for finding/sharing that video C8-wannabe! When the first one started right up, that was an emotional moment when I saw that five years ago and was again re-seeing it today.

              I little fun by the Corvette Cafe (inside the Museum). How about a special dessert to mark today’s anniversary? You get to take your toy Corvette home with you.
