If you love automotive history and happen to be in Flint, Michigan sometime this summer, we would recommend checking out the Buick Automotive Gallery in the Sloan*Longway museum. The gallery will be welcoming a new exhibit this weekend—Corvettes: 0-60. The exhibit celebrates the 60 year history of the Corvette, which started its production in Flint.
Spend a summer afternoon strolling through the gallery, which features over 25 classic and concept cars built locally in Flint, including a 1951 Buick XP-300, 1963 Buick Silver Arrow I, and a Hellcat Tank Destroyer designed by Buick for use in World War II. To really bring the nostalgia home, the gallery features Mackenzie’s Drug Store where you can enjoy a classic Coke in a real glass bottle.
The Corvette exhibit opens on July 20 and runs through September 29 with models from each of the seven Corvette generations from the past 60 years. For hours and admission information, visit the museum website.
