      WOW! That's the week that our Torch Red HTC is scheduled to be built. If the tours start up by then look for it. (Black roof and Naceles, black wheels and body colored trim with the two tone Red/Black 3LT interior.)

      I remember watching our early C7 'vert' sitting on the Museum floor for a couple days between Christmas and New Years back in 2013. Every time a visitor with a Coke in their hand leaned over to get a closer look, I started to jump up and down yelling at 'em. My wife finally took away my laptop. I'm guessing with the Quality Hold (if any) and the transfer time from the factory to the Museum and then their clean up / prep, it won't get onto the floor until the middle of May.

      JOHN: I'll get you the VIN. If it goes by when you're there take a picture or two AND hop in at the end of the line and start it for me!

        Hi, guys. Anybody know if the plant tours will be back on for the BASH ? There is no indication on the NCM website if/ when the tours will start back up. I'd love to see the new lines - especially that robotic frame assembly shop.

          The NCM agenda comes out the very beginning of January, but it is not until much later, as brad66 mentioned above, often early April or so that it gets updated with the GM’s Corvette seminar descriptions, latest info, etc. I would not expect us to hear anything for about eight more weeks about either the C8 seminars nor about Plant tours. We know it is a GM goal to reinstitute them for the Bash, but like much else right now we are wanting to know, GM is still learning and thus properly not yet sharing.

            I spoke to Shane at NCM the other day and he told me the buyer tours are not scheduled yet, and didn’t have a schedule from GM. He had heard Springtime start, but no updates on exact schedule yet.

              Thanks, Brad. Spring can't come soon enough for me. March 21st is my 65th birthday and the first day of Spring. I am ready and I hope I can see the plant in April.

                Updated agenda posted. They have added Kai's plant update session and have placeholders for the Corvette Team presentation with speakers TBD (usually Tadge and Harlan).

                  This year’s special Bash: We know there will be customer C8’s, C8 seminars by Corvette team leaders, and probably around 50 Corvette team staff (Michigan and BGA crews) there to meet and talk with you 1 to 1.

                  My wife and I can not wait (about our 18th Bash).

                            I'm good with eating twice! Who's bringing the time machine?

                            At this point, I'm just hoping the Coronavirus scare doesn't cancel it. Lot's of "elderly" Corvette owners.
